The Heinzelmännchen unsaving your changes


This happens to me all the time.

You’ll be editing a document, decide it’s finished, and you save it. You’ll forget to close it, then go into another application and do something else. When you inevitably remember you still have it open, you’ll try to close it.

Do you want to close with unsaved changes?

Which unsaved changes? Where!?

As my German dad would say, the Heinzelmännchen did it! I’m tagging it as such until given sufficient evidence to the contrary.
