*someone* in your household has a habit of skating closer to the edge than is advisable…

Says whom? I wrote that she "miscalculated her balance." Math errors are not limited to small sums.

Also, I take issue with your use of the word habit. A habit is "a settled or regular tendency or practice, esp. one that is hard to give up." *

I wrote that it "has happened once or twice before," meaning it's happened a total of perhaps three times over the last 17 years.

So either you have a very strange definition of habit, or have committed libel.
