20 years ago I’m lying on my back under a sweet boardroom table that I built, fancy inlays, cross banding, the works – screwing the base extensions to the top. I call out to my boss for more screws and he hands me a bunch, I take them without looking and finish the last ones. He yells ”Stop, stop!!” just as the last two poke their heads above the surface. Since that day I consciously look at every important screw that I drive.
