I always think that this joke sums it up perfectly:
"The programmer's wife sent him to the grocery store. Her instructions were: 'Buy butter, see if they have eggs. If they do, buy 10". So he bought 10 packs of butter."
HAHA order of operations and specificity.
I remember when I was first learning JS, my friends told me this little anecdote emphasizing the importance of "return"
"You give your roommate a list of things to do:
At the end of the day, he returns with nothing.
But hey, you got a red door."
You didn't specify if he had to RETURN HOME WITH THE PIZZA so... ¯_(ツ)_/¯
That's a great way to remember specificity, thanks!
