You're not too Smart
When I was growing up and I had a few parts left over after fixing a lawnmower, my father would recite a little poem to me.
Many decades later, I still hear myself repeating it. It can save you, too, from lost time and headaches:
You're Never Too Smart
To Draw a Chart
Before You Take It Apart.
Admit it. Save yourself some aggravation. Draw a diagram or take some pictures first.
