"I reworked the interface for you. Now it's idiot-proof."

    @liammartens One of the clients replied "thank you for the compliment" in a sarcastic way. Then i realized what i did and apologized.

    I'd say that counts as honest, but not so honest you'd get in any serious trouble. Most execs and leadership (at my company at least) know deep down that they are not computer experts and are sometimes prone to stupid user mistakes. (That's why they hired us 😁) Hope that was secretly what happened with your audience!
