Thank you, I needed the laugh.

Sometimes, getting the idea that checking one's work is necessary proves
to be a hard lesson to teach to some of those young whippersnappers.  I
live and work in Reno NV, so I put the lesson in terms they can understand:

  "A triple check beats a double-cross."

This is sufficiently annoying to people that they do indeed check their
work...so they don't have to listen to me spout this cliche when things
get screwed up.
