I read this just now in some online training material: “One good thing about this labyrinth is there are no pesky bosses or spouses with a memory like a steal trap containing a long list of chores for me to do!”
What meaning connections might there be? The trap which is their memory takes their employees’/spouse’s freedom away, i.e. steals it?
Seems most likely to just be a misspelling, to me.
*If the human mind were simple enough for us to understand,
we would be too simple-minded to understand it* .
Unfortunately, I have a mind like a still trap, nothing gets out and nothings gets in
