Use The Right Tool For The Job

Use The Right Tool For The Job

Remember when your father taught you not to use a screwdriver to drive a nail? Not to use a knife to turn a screw? Use the wrong tool, and you are likely to damage something--maybe yourself. Here's yet another example of "use the wrong tool, someone gets hurt." It almost reads like a redneck joke. From the April 9, 2008 St. Louis Post-Dispatch:
SEDALIA, Mo. -- Prosecutors are not expected to file charges against a Missouri man who fatally shot his wife while he was trying to install a satellite TV system in their home.

Henry County investigators ruled that Patsy Long's March 22 death was accidental. Her husband, Ronald Long, fired his .22 caliber pistol from inside their Deepwater home after he couldn't punch a hole through the exterior wall using other means.

The sheriff's office said the 34-year-old woman was hit in the chest by the second of two shots.
If someone later establishes that it didn't really happen this way, I won't be surprised.
