Per your logic world should be perfect and every pilot should always respond in a most efficient way. But we live in a different world, we live in a world in which a professional pilot with paying passengers is capable of taking off from wrong runway or even a taxiway, or landing on a wrong runway, in other words big errors are possible in a perfectly well functioning aircraft so it should be of no surprise to you that when things no longer go 'perfect' - even bigger errors can ensue.
