The tape came back home or the daughter came back home?

Just one in the shop (at least four or five around the how and in the car).
Any more than one and there will always be disagreements among them. I use
the Stanley which matches my steel ruler the best for shop work but never
for precise marking.
At least a story stick is rigid - and in the case of cutting a 16
foot 2X10 to fit between 2 points, it's possible to use the lumber as
it's own "storry stick" Hold in place, mark where to cut - and cut.
Repeatability not required for a single piece. - just accuracy..
(and in most cases like this, a 128th inch is close enough anyway)

That's what I was thinking. As long as 22 1/4 inchs stays in
the same place on the tape, everything measured to that point
will be the same length.
The problem comes in when trying to measure one thing to 22 1/4,
and another to 11 1/8. There you need some level of accuracy
in the tape.
Not so bad if you do the measuring and building with the same tape...
But if my tape read smaller than actual and your reads bigger than
actual (or vice versa) it is not going to fit right if I tell you to
make a cabinet exactly 24" wide.
