Won’t see them again ’til the fourth of July

“Give them a torch, and someone will start yelling, “FIRE!””

– Joshua Hall


In context, I came up with this phrase when I was trying to help a business group at work by giving them information about a technology plan to make updates to PCs.  Since I told them, they started pointing at that plan for all of their computer problems, even though they were not related at all.  If I hadn’t given them the information, they might have actually had to figure out what the real problems were.  I can’t really think of another phrase that compares, but surely there are other situations that warrant the saying.
