But his lateness and his desire to interrupt the fsck on that particular
occasion are directly causally linked. To say "Your mistake. You should
have done so and so. You must live with the consequences if you didn't." is
neither very pleasant nor very helpful. As I say, most of us are human and
make mistakes sometimes.
Eduardo probably usually wants fsck to run. Just not on that occasion. So
your "solution" didn't even solve the problem.
