One can be an idiot.
One can also be a victim of an idiot.

When my house was rebuilt after Sandy, I had demand hot water put in. It was a 'condenser' type, which removes heat from the burned gas by condensing water from the combustion. This collects and drips into a container, and if it fills enough, out a small pipe (and into a small bucket).

The plumbers who installed it didn't bother removing the plug closing the overflow exit (it was hidden by a big bright yellow tag telling them to remove it). So - after using it for some days it suddenly stopped working. The overflow detection tripped the interlock.

A quick call to the manufacturer and they asked me to check. Problem solved in a few minutes. Thanking the support person, unscrewing the plug, and mostly, cursing out the plumbers.
