    Tried to do something more difficult than necessary, even when you know it was harder than necessary, and keep at it instead of doing it the easier way?

    Like mowing the wet grass instead of waiting until the grass dries. Even then, you still don't stop mowing even after you have to stop multiple times to clean out the clogged under side from the wet packed in grass?

    If it isn't complicated, then make it that way, I always say. But my trade mark is not finishing it up.

    My dad used to say there is a hard way and an easy way. We'd be robots without whimsy.

    Sometimes, we ladies of the South are just hard headed!

    Not only do I often do things the hard way, but I often break things in the process...using them to do a task for which they were not intended. If I force it and it breaks, it needed replaced anyway, right?

    Guilty. I am notorious for that kind of stupidity. [​IMG]

    I will use the mini floor vacuum because it's "lighter and easier" and then stopping repeatedly to clean it out because it gets clogged up, when I could have just used the big vacuum and got the job done without stopping.

    Or using a screwdriver because it's handy and then struggling to get a screw in the wall and getting frustrated when it repeatedly slips off the screw when I could have just walked two rooms away and grabbed the screw gun.

    I'm sure I could think of plenty more, but it's just embarrassing, so I'll stop now. [​IMG]
