@freakboy3742 True story: Back in the days (1980s) when I worked in the COBOL mines I noticed some code I was maintaining had a possible unhandled invalid state it could get into, but should never happen. So I added an abend with a message reading, "This shouldn't have happened and you shouldn't seeing this message. Thank you for flying OZ Airways."

Six months later I got called into my boss's office after it somehow happened during nightly processing.
