Ouch.

But I fear that any of us could fall victim to stupidity born out of self
confidence.  I pray that I don't get it as bad as some of your clients,
John.

Speaking of tripods, I just got an 1N back for redo after complaints that
now the release botton was sticking down after exposure.  Camera came in
with a metal quick release block stuck to the bottom, but this one was
different. See pic.

This tripod block has a hex set screw on it.  So, first the customer turns
the main tripod screw as tight as she can, THEN she wrenches the set screw
tight enough to flex the bottom of the body casting AND renew the huge
dimple in the bottom cover that I had already straightened. It was wrenched
so hard that tripod block itself has a slight bend in it now. Oh yeah,
because a space had formed between body and block, she took it off, applied
a huge gob of silicon rubber seal and then put it back on.  Silicon squished
in through crack on front edge of bottom cover and got into the release
mechanism.

Some people...
