Too Many Cooks Spoil the Broth

April 9, 2019

(too many people trying to take care of something can ruin it)

Too Many Cooks

  • What are you doing, Benito?
  • I’m trying to fix the coffee machine. I’ll have it going again soon if everybody stops making suggestions.
  • Well, you can’t blame the other employees for being impatient to run off their materials. They just want to help you.
  • Yeah, but too many cooks spoil the broth. They really don’t know what they’re doing, and if I listen to their advice, this would never get fixed. I’m the guy with the experience and I don’t want to have the machine ruined by too many people trying to fix it. Just let me be, and I’ll handle it on my own.
