Lurk away Brother! I do it all the time.

I sorta know the feeling.

Back in my Navy days, I worked in one of the engineering spaces (#4 plant) in the front half of the USS Enterprise. Supply department is at the back of the ship, about 600 feet away (city block, 1/10 of a mile, 2 football fields - pick your metaphor).

Typical event - 4 plant guy says, "Harv - go back to supply and get me a [name of widget]". So I traipse back & tell them, "I need a widget".
They'd ask "what for?".
"I don't know".
"Go back & find out".

After a few (or a few dozen) of those experiences, you learn to ask "why?" when someone asks you to fetch a widget.

In your case, the question is "what tools might I possibly need?", but it's the same principle.
