Every Day Error Proofing Examples



I love this website. There are 30+ examples of every day errorproofing. I wish my bank's ATM had the error proofing function built in to the example shown. I drove off without my ATM card the other day… as opposed to my other bank where the ATM forces you to take the card back before you get your cash. I've never driven off without my money before, I'm not that absent minded.
