“What now?” I sighed out loud.
I’d just turned the key and my truck wouldn’t start. It had already been a tough day and I was now stuck in a parking lot with no way home. I jumped out of the car, popped the hood and found the problem. It was the new battery. The cable had come loose.
That’s an easy fix when you have the right tools.
It’s a heck of a lot harder when you don’t.
And I didn’t.
Pair of pliers? Nope!
Channel locks? Nada!
Crescent wrench? Zilch!
I did have a flat head screwdriver and a hammer! So, for the next 30 minutes I worked hard to tighten the nut with that hammer and screw driver. I got it to work. Barely. Tight enough to get home where I could do it right.
In this case, I used the wrong tool for the job. With the right tool, I would have gotten it done quicker than you can say Jack Robinson!
