Last week, I went to work in a bit of a snowstorm. When I arrived, I garnered a few odd stares when I brought my snow brush in with me.
I patiently explained that “I didn’t want to have to clear off my car to get to the tool I need to clear off my car.”
Everyone thought that was such a great idea. By the end of the day, half of them had asked to borrow my brush. The other half wanted me to clear off their car for them.
It used to be that “no good deed goes unpunished.” Now it includes ideas, too.
(Paul, this might be a good time for you to shut up. Again.)

Update 2: Alex fixed his trackback, so kindly ignore the above.
