'Sailor Proofing'

So I work with Engineers sometimes in Development of things in the Space Industry and today one of them couldn’t figure out which telemetry file to use on a piece of software! I said…

“Now if an Engineer can screw this up, what do you think the technicians will do?”

… He looked at me funny…

“You should probably fix it so that doesn’t happen! In my Navy Days we called that Sailor Proofing!”

… He looks at the computer screen, then looks at me and says…

“I could strand two sailors on a Deserted Island with an anvil and in two weeks come back… the anvil would be broke in half, the two sailors would be drunk and both have the clap!”

Now how could I argue with that!!!
