Re: Lack of imagination when thinking up things that can go wrong.
"I'm glad I don't have to make those decisions."
You think. People's lives are routinely in the hands of the low-wage heroes who maintain armco barriers. Or the unfortunate oiks making sandwiches. Or the unthanked people doing airport security. Or the people assembling third party phone chargers. Or design theme park rides. Or engine (or lift) software Etc, etc.
My guess is that around one third of the population work in roles where the worst case scenario is somebody dies. I've worked in roles (many, many years ago) where if I got it wrong then an East German village might have been hit with a tactical nuke.
Be pleased if the worst result of your unintended error is a few zeroes in an SAP register.
