'pilots are rigorously trained to trust supposedly failsafe automatics'
No computer programmer can cover all the real world "if then" situations.

Ask yourself how many times have you uttered "Why is it doing that".
If you are in cruise you probably have time to sort it out. In a go-around from a bounce, time is not on your side.
