True story:

Went to my favorite local mechanic, and as part of the service he checked the tires with his brand new tire gauge/inflater. He asked me why I had the pressures so high and if he should reduce them. I agreed, even though I didn't understand how they could be significantly off. Thought my cheap digital gauge must have gone bad.

Went and bought a new (cheap) digital gauge, and check the tires. Guess what? They were all now way too low.

Went back to the mechanic, and checked the tires with another gauge they had there. It agreed with (both of) my digital gauges.

His brand new gauge was defective and because of it, he lowered the pressure in my tires. No malice or incompetence. Just a mistake based on defective equipment.

Don't jump too quickly to conclusions. Try not to assume the worst about people.
