Far Less Satisfying…

…but still true.

Once the error has been made, your theme changes radically: it’s definitely not to stress how wise you were to foresee the catastrophe.  It’s rather to use your gifts to lessen the consequences of the mishap and help [him] not to lose face….

Objectively, there’s very little sense in ever saying, “I told you so,” because by the time you say it, the culprit knows it full well himself.
