want (something) like (one wants) a hole in the head

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