There’s an old saying:
It is tempting, if the only tool you have is a hammer, to treat everything as if it were a nail.
The quote is attributed to Abraham Maslow and I have neither a reason to doubt that, nor consider it important enough to look up.
When your only tool is a hammer, every problem looks like a reason to buy a way nicer hammer.
Both statements have applicability to the rather funny story — which also highlights a problem — that I write about today.
