We've all done silly things I suppose.
I took my trimmer in more than once when it wouldn't start, turns out it has to be in the "ON" position to run.
Also, called the local shop when a Z I borrowed from them quit running at an account.
Turns out they run a lot better with fuel.
The lesson is, slow down and assess the situation.
Every time I've done something silly, I was in tornado mode.
