On the other foot, it's probably not such an unreasonable expectation for
someone coming from a different background to expect that once it *looks* done
it actually *is* done.
It's as if you were to take me scuba diving, or drag racing... I have zero
expertise and I'd probably be doing all the silly ignorant things too.
Or... maybe the tech was just in a hurry and didn't think all the way through
the consequences. I've been there. ;)
