Hook, Line and Sinker.

Work is stressing me out. Really burning up a little. I read something today which made me smile wryly think and worry.

There is an expression that, I am sad to say, is appropriate for this part of the story. The expression is “falling for something hook, line, and sinker,” and it comes from the world of fishing. The hook, the line, and the sinker are all parts of a fishing rod, and they work together to lure fish out of the ocean to their doom. If somebody is falling for something hook, line, and sinker, they are believing a bunch of lies and may find themselves doomed as a result.”                                                         -Lemony Snicket, Book 3,  A Series of Unfortunate Events
