The bank example's a tad off when trying to draw a correlation to this particular case. I do agree with your sentiment though. I would reword it and say: if someone pointed out to a stubborn bank manager who refused to listen that the vault and my h of the bank's money was easily accessible, by taking out afew dollars from the bank & handing it to him. The a very embarrassed manager would be right to reward the person for showing the institutions flaw and not robbing them blind.

They might even throw a little fanfare his/her way to send a message that the bank appreciates being told and not robbed blind. (Especially given that they're a "community bank" built by pioneers and not a monolithic marble statue institution :-P)
