    Default Biggest Mistake at Work?

    What was your biggest mistake at work? We've all made em, some are more amusing then others, what was yours?

    Mine was when i was working for a client, an accounting frim, and I was tasked with replacing a dead drive in their raid five array. This is a simple enough task now that I look back on it with embarassment. Anyways I took out the old dead drive and put the new drive back into the box. Well instead of letting the new drive just rebuild on it's own I forced the drive online. Well by doing this for those of you who don't know how raid works it basically replicated "blank data" to the other two drives and thus and effectively scrambled both of the good drives. Within 20 seconds the server blue screened and the server was down... this was on March 29th and thats dead center in tax season. Well the drives were unrecoverable so we had to rebuild their entire server from the ground up. This took us about 29 hours of free company time plus the accounting firm being down for that amount of time during the middle of tax season. I could of gotten away with it and just blamed one of many number of things but I pride myself in being an honest professional so i fessed up to my mistake. Thankfully the owner of the accounting firm talked me a day later and said that if anything it was a blessing and it gave him an excuse to go home and sleep and that it probably was for the better and that 6pack of beer should cover it. Needless to say a six pack was promptly delivered to his office and we continued to do work for them. Embarrassing none the less and thank God they did backups religiously for 15 years.

    Does that ignite quickly? How did that happen? I don't think I've ever seen such a thing....

    There was a spark from a saw that hit some of the dust on the side of the bag. Just poof, and there was a rather toasty fire going on the loading pad.

    I have not really worked much. But on occasion I give someone the wrong amount of change. I felt really bad about it but there were like 30 people swarming me for consessions and it's really confusing when they hand me 5-20 dollar bills and want like 4-6 things that each cost 50 cents. >_>

    It makes me think I can't count.. >.>

    My work is teaching little children at my coaching/tutoring place, but what gives. It's still a job.
    The worst mistake I made (so far) was mixing up the lunch orders ;X
    I almost killed someone by giving them food with seafood in it.
    Lucky they had enough brain to check why it smelled different than usual.

    Signature by myself :3

    Hah yeah I did that a few times when i worked for a cafeteria. I wouldn't feel to bad about it everyone does it. Hell i was still doing it after 2 years there. LOL I remember one time I worked at the schools cafeteria that I was going to and we had to manually put in the amount of the charge. Well one of the workers instead of putting 12.94 put 1294.00 and ran the charge and it went through ahahahahaha. The next day the guy came back with this very perplexed look on his face wondering why his box of cheerios cost him 1200 dollars :P

    Mentioning that you don't mind working over or coming in early is a huge mistake, because as soon as the wrong person gets a hold of that information you will be taken advantage of. Constantly. ._.

    I used the wrong type of RNA-collecting columns, and lost the RNA of 4 rat blood samples.
    Boy, did I feel horrible. My boss wasn't relenting either in scolding me. >.>

    Hmm..Let me think.. I guess the only thing I do sometimes at work is take someone into the
    wrong room for a split second, but then I realize it and just turn back around. I don't really
    make any mistakes at my job.. I am pretty good. (:
