How to fix an elongated last stitch

We've all been there, super excited to finally bind off a project and that last stitch ruins it all!  What do you do?  Live with it, sew it down, undo and redo the bind off only to have it happen again?  No worries, we're here to help!  There is a super simple fix to this problem!


Here's the elongated stitch if I was binding off as usual.  Not attractive!  So how do we fix it?

Knit them together.  You know have two stitches on your right hand needle.
