People make mistakes, and there isn’t much we can do about them. Even the most perfect, seemingly foolproof planning can go awry with just one single error. It’s not like people purposely fail at these things.

“Posted the sign, boss…”
“Ah, scohol. Those were the days.”
“Finished labeling the package, boss.”
