Just my personal opinion, but sometimes it's not about fixing that fire but the ones in the future. When I first started here almost 3 years ago our train wrecked before I even knew what was going on. I was given a lot of advice, a lot of tools and a lot of help. Some of it really did help with the situation at hand, some of it couldn't fix the current problem but gave me a new way to look at things and new tools to keep it from happening in the future.
I learned a lot through the help I got on here that not only helps us in our relationships, but day to day stuff too.
So while you may see the train heading for a crash, sometimes it needs to in order to be rebuilt with the new tools and equipment provided.
