Dumbass Sayings: “If It Ain’t Broke, Don’t Fix It”

Curved trusswork doesn't classify as "broken",
but it should still probably be looked at.
Fixing something is never bad. If you fixed something, it’s fixed. There’s no reason not to fix anything. TRYING to fix something is where mistakes happen. This saying should be “If it ain’t broke, don’t try to fix it, just fix it. The main problem with this saying is that it’s just flat out wrong.

Sayings like “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” are the main reason the U.S. is experiencing problems due to a crumbling infrastructure. In the near future we will start to see more mishaps dealing with deteriorating roads, bridges, tunnels, pipelines, etc. because they’re getting too old. These roads and bridges aren’t technically “broken” but that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be tended to and fixed up to prevent a catastrophic failure. Just because something’s working doesn’t mean you should ignore it.

And as far as animals go, your dog’s financial situation has nothing to do with whether or not you should get him neutered. Fixing your dog should be done to limit the number of dogs that have to be taken into pounds and euthanized.
