who is at fault?

You are. I look at charts and documents all day that don't add up or don't match. I just sent an email about two sets of numbers that don't match. You know what I didn't do? I didn't accuse that person of not doing their job or jump to the conclusion that they can't do arithmetic. I instead asked "These numbers don't match, is that an error or am I missing something?"

It's called being cordial (and it saves me the embarrassment of having to walk back a false accusation. Of course, I guess the alternative is just to reclassify my false accusation as a contribution, right?)
