The missing piece

Do you know what’s irritating? Laying a 2000 pieces jigsaw puzzle and discover that one piece is missing! >_< I've been working on the bloody thing for two weeks, and now I'm one (1) piece short of completing it! I've searched everywhere, but I can't find it. The puzzle is really old so I guess I shouldn't be surprised, but still... Gaah! Imaginary Karin - jigsaw puzzle

    I hate that. You get all excited that you’re almost done and then … wait, where’s the last one!?

    My Dad was almost finished a round puzzle a few months ago, but was missing 7 pieces. We found most of them under the couch (the cat got to them), but still were short 2. :cry: It took him forever to do, because he was recovering from a stroke. I still look around the couch from time to time to see if it got stuck someplace.

    I love puzzles!

    My mom threw a lot away. I don’t think – no I know for a fact – that we have any anymore. All because of one missing piece! :(

    Ouch! What a let down. I have a jigsaw puzzle that came with a frame to hang it on the wall, I hope it isn’t missing pieces.

    Oh that is so frustrating! Cool puzzle, though.

    That’s so unfair, and it would drive me batty. The dang thing should at least have the decency to be missing a few more pieces. Personally, I could deal with 5-10 missing pieces — it’s old, so it’s to be expected — but just one?! That seems almost intentional. XD

      I thought the same thing! 10 missing pieces are like “ok, it’s broken. meh” but ONE? That’s personal… :glare:

    I would probably end up doing something crazy like cut out a piece in that shape, color it and stick it there just to make my eyes happy. :crazy:
