Screw ups, flubs, accidents … everyone’s done them. Everyone will do them. They are inevitable. We’re just human.
So what’s your favorite flub?
Mine is the time that I was trying to look-up a command by typing “SLTCMD CMD(A*)” but, instead of hitting “S”, I accidentally hit the letter letter immediately to the right of it instead.
Luckily I was operating with a *PGMR user profile, so the damage I was able to do was limited. Still, it got me some attention.
Use the comments below to tell the world what your biggest screw-up was.
