Oh it was "flies". I was wondering what it was. Also the "duh..." answer is too complicated. I knew the answer, tried "you stop looking".

counterfeit money does not work, although I didn't try it with capitals. You need to accept more answers for "Why do you always find things in the last place you look for them?" - you stop looking, you found what you were looking for, etc.

There definitely needs to be more accepted answers for the "always find things in the last place" one. I tried everything I could think of. The garbage truck one has flies misspelled. As someone else said K9P does not work.
