: anyone with history of this saying, We are doing a paper on a new business trend that evolved from the same-o same-o saying that has been used for years.
I use that in my job as a mechanic.It happens alot with batteries.If your battery in dead, there is a reason for it.Most of the time the battery get replaced.And then it happens again and the aternater gets replaced,and so on and so on.Then someone says that phrase and then they take it to a pro.Where the cause is found.Ive heard it (fix the cause not the symtom)
