So my inlaws have this coffee machine.

Coffee machine, with a carafe sitting in an enclosure below a brew head

It brews into a small-ish hole in the top of a carafe.

Now, if the carafe isn't pushed all the way into the machine, the hole doesn't line up correctly...so instead of pouring into the carafe, the coffee streams all over the counter.

Someone at the company who made the coffee machine noticed this, and thoughtfully printed a warning on the machine.

Warning text on foot of coffee machine: PUSH THE CARAFE ALL THE WAY IN TO AVOID OVERFLOWING

When do you most need to see this warning?
When the carafe isn't pushed all the way in, right?

So what happens when the carafe isn't pushed all the way in?

Kitchen-gadget UI is IDEK sometimes.

Our stove/oven is a pretty standard modern Maytag. To turn the oven on, you hit Bake or Broil, select the desired temperature with More/Less buttons, and then.... ? It took me some time to figure out that you had to hit Bake or Broil again after setting the temperature.

Even better, the said machine is black. The Cancel button, which is what turns off the oven? Is RED. On BLACK. In other words, basically invisible under most circumstances. Not to mention, WTFingF is wrong with the simple, understandable word "OFF"?
