Wild Goose Chase
To go on a wild goose chase.
To go on a profitless journey. To take part in a useless search.
Most wild goose chases are unsuccessful because wild geese
fly very high and fast and are therefore
difficult to shoot.
Example: I went on a wild goose chase all over the town looking for that adapter,
until I discovered that they no longer make them.
