Captain Obvious has a sister

And she’s evidently not too handy around the house:

Yahoo Answers screenshot: My temporary tag for my new car is hard to unscrew. It requires a flathead screwdriver. How can I get it off?

To give her credit, she wasn’t at all rude about it; she apparently really wasn’t sure what she was doing. Still, how do you get to the age of eight, let alone eighteen, without a working knowledge of screwdrivers?

    My problem isn’t knowing what type of screwdriver I need; it’s finding one of the darn things. I SWEAR my flatheads all mutate to Phillips (and vice versa) based on what I am looking for.
