I’m not an expert in the field of measuring tools, but I had to cringe the whole time I was drawing this comic, haha! Compared to what Sally did, using a flathead screwdriver for a Phillips screw is only a minor misdemeanor. Although I have to admit, when I’m in a pickle and don’t have the correct tool at hand, I have been known to improvise. There’s truth to this famous saying: Every tool is a multitool. You can use it for its intended purpose or as a hammer. I guess the difference between being MacGyver or a dunce is the awareness that you know how and why you’re abusing a certain tool.
I’d never use calipers like that, unless my life is threatened, though!
