To close the barn door after the cow has escaped
- (idiomatic) To attempt to prevent a problem only to find it has already happened.
Up until last week this would never have been a problem. First of all, parts of our barns didn't have doors. AND more importantly, we don't have any cows. So whats the problem here???? Actually no problem. BUT this past week i decided that i had thought about, contemplated over and procrastinated long enough about the barn doors, just in case Beatrice decides to get a cow.
AND John Deere, thanked me. He said he was always embarrassed when ever he had to pull out his dipstick to check his oil. I never knew he was an auto oil checker!!!!!
