Exactly, this is what most of us do.

Look, there's an easy solution...

As a belayer, when confronted with an obvious error in communication when the climber reaches the anchors (and perhaps, you can see what's going on), just pay out a truckload of slack, maybe even tie them off, then go about your business of making a ham and pickle sandwhich, racking gear or whatever. So if they screw up the 2nd part (slumping onto the rope without even an 'on you' ....they were going to rap, weren't they?), at least they'll take a ride they're not going to forget in a hurry.
