need (something) like (one) needs a hole in the head

To have absolutely no need or use for something. I'm perfectly happy having a cell phone that just makes phone calls—I need a fancy new smartphone like I need a hole in the head. We have enough problems with the business as it is, so we need an audit right now like we need a hole in the head.
