This month there was a short article about how to properly jump-start a car. While looking at the diagram, I noticed that the connection order was wrong. After completing the task at hand, I washed my hands and returned to my desk. I checked several sources and sure enough, there was a mistake. I contacted the editor of the PP and asked him to check it. About an hour later, he emailed me back to confirm that there was an error.
After I returned from lunch that day, my safety manager walked in my office and handed me a safety award. I thought that was a little much, but I carefully accepted the award being sure to not incur a paper cut.
I responded to the PP editor’s email by saying “Coffee is actually the one to thank here. Because of her I spent plenty of time reading the Porcelain Press and was alert enough to spot the mistake.”
