With all due respect David, I think it is about time your daughter
learned "the facts of life". Put away those silly flat and phillips
screwdrivers and instead get her a set of "Robbies".
I believe they are called "square head" screws in the States and often
advertised through McFeely's. With a robbie you can drive a screw into
the ceiling, or at an angle, using one hand. Try that with those other
old fashioned kind:-) Also work perfectly when using a cordless drill.
