When you say "almost 2" instead of 1.7 because you're not sure your customers understand the decimal system.

    I generally assume everyone is a complete idiot until they prove otherwise. They rarely do :<

    @Root I do the same thing, except with the intention of trying to be helpful. This has on occasion made me decide condescending.

    Haha... ha.
    That hurts.
    I failed a threshold question at an exam (multiple choice), because the result that I got was 1.3, and the choices were 0.1, 1, 10, and "Other".
    Choosing "Other" and writing 1.3, and explaining how I got it below did not count. I contested the result, in vain. The verdict was that I should have rounded.
    That resulted in a lower grade, and a lost scholarship.

    @RiderExMachina that was my graduation exam. I was already out. But the results stifled my future prospects.
