OK, I usually count the "depth" so I knew it was off.

Just for the record, I thought that was quite funny when I first read it
:-)! I didn't think I could improve on it, so I didn't.

OK, I hadn't thought that as I count depth. I'll reconsider.

Agreed, unnecessarily careless.

For those still confused, it might be worth considering one of the
many variants on the saying (which is not uniquely Finnish):
Money is a good servant, but a lousy master
Science is a good servant, but a lousy master
Fashion is a good servant, but a lousy master
Stress is a good servant, but a lousy master
"Servant" probably makes more sense in English than "labourer"
(I assume that's an artefact of translation from Finnish).
But "style" (instead of "fashion") is certainly better within
the context of ciwas! And, it does make sense that way...
