5647 Doopsy When I was welding 1) screwed up a $65,000 door. 2) may or may not have blown a hole in a $1,000,000 + missile launching platform. Edit: so people want to know. The $65,000 door was an EMP/RF and ballistic door. The damage happened when I was using a dye grinder to clear a bit of solder in a tube that ran through the door for some electrical- the bit grabbed and twisted the tubing and ripped it out. No way to fix it other than scrap the door. 2) the launch module- I was welding and on the job site there's a jungle of welding leads running everywhere- close to 20 machines? Well mine was set good but my buddies wasn't. He just raced his leads to a wrong machine and ended up cranking mine up way to hot while I was mid weld. I was able to fix said hole and patch it up with no defects or such. Hope that clears things up. Oh, and yes, I'm still a certified welder, just decided to do a career change for other reasons.
4200 y_awaworh_t Not wearing my retainer after getting braces removed... Wear your retainers, people
7045 AvonelleRed67 Not taking better care of my teeth. Now I need thousands of dollars worth of work, and can't afford it, so will likely end up losing them all.
7980 Al_Vino_Vino Had a part time job as a teenager at a Yamaha dealership that sold dirt bikes, atv's, motorcycles. I was told one day to deliver a Raptor to some address. Well, I loaded the atv up on the trailer and took off in the truck down the road. I noticed that the truck was low on gas so I pulled over and filled her up.. I made it about 1.5 miles down the road and the truck started running funny and eventually cut off.. I had put gasoline in a diesel truck.. I was fired about 4 days later.
9257 Deako87 Not me, but my best mate made a doozy. He was in a bit of a rush to buy himself a car. He had a nice little nest egg of $20,000 put aside just for this purchase. He did a bunch of private inspections around our area, but he just couldn't find one he wanted. He finally stumbled across the perfect car for him, great mileage (all country driving), full service history and in excellent condition. The only problem? The buyer was on the other side of the country. For what ever reason my mate decided to contact the dude and organise the purchase. After the money transfered, the ad disappeared and so did the car owner. I just have no idea what was going through my mates head, it has been 5 years and they never caught the fraudster and my friend never got his 20k back. **TL;DR Don't ever buy a car without inspecting it and don't treat private car sales like a drunk Amazon purchase.**
20534 fridayfridayjones Freshman year of college I thought my final exam was at 11:30. It was at 9:30. The exam was 40% of my grade, so I failed. I lost my scholarship, and had to pay to retake the class.
16175 PM_Literally_Anythin I bought a business. Turns out I'm not all that great at being a business owner.
3268 XBo0dspill3rX losing my father's wedding ring at the beach about 5 years ago . my mum gave it to me when my father passed away which was 13 years ago
22861 Back2Bach I paid several thousand dollars to have the back yard fenced in. Two months after the job was complete and paid for, a neighbor complained that the fencing was about 2 inches onto his property and that it had to be removed, even though the fencing contractor said it had been done strictly according to a survey he had procured. Turned out the neighbor was correct. By the time it was determined, the fencing contractor had gone out of business.

1448 Kit-Carson Not me, but a friend trained to be a fireman and the first month on the job crashed one of the fire trucks. Crashed as in wrecked. He's no longer a fireman. Seriously, wasn't me.
5858 smalltowngirl64 Buying a $2500 couch as a college student...why why why
7082 resorcinarene Bad time during life and thought buying a new sports car would solve my internal issues. It didn't and I was stuck with a debt. It was sweet to drive and I loved the looks it got, but it did little to resolve my actual problems. I paid it off and sold it 3 years later for a net $30K loss. edit: Lots of people asking about the car. It was a 2007 Porsche Boxster.
3298 bassistmuzikman I was driving down the street and a woman blew a kiss at me from a bus passing by. I leaned over to my friends to say "hey guys! did you just see that? she blew me a.." *CRASH* ... ran into the little VW Fox in front of me and then he rammed the Audi in front of him. That sucked. I totally destroyed the VW.

5774 Novah11 Waiting 5 whole years before I began investing in my 401K. Despite a very generous company match.
2124 glahtiguy Not starting my retirement account 10 years earlier than I did. Bricking every laptop in the company for a day+, in a place where a lot of people are paid on commision. I don't know how much productivity was lost dollar amount wise, but it was a lot.
5464 buttery_shame_cave one time we thought i'd blown up a half million dollar satellite communication system with a power test. my first class and i had a grand old time going back to fundamentals, tearing down the system, checking everything over, and fixing stuff as we went. turns out i only blew up the $100k power amp near the dish, which only happened because the prior ET3 had been really lazy with his weatherproofing. it was a lot of fun.
2159 Bolloux Bought a Mazda RX8. Went from paying £2000 for it to selling it to the scrapman for £35 in 3 months. Also, if I had stayed at my last job 1 more year, my share options would have vested and netted me £20k. Sigh.
173 Loki240SX Engagement ring for the first girl I fell in love with. Sure is a shiny rock kicking around the bottom of my drawer now.
1963 Mail_Escort Not wearing a condom with an ex gf because she said the doctor said she was sterile.
8085 2baldguys Taking the wrong backpack out of the trunk of a car a hitched a ride with. I wound up with a bunch of girl's clothes I couldn't wear and without all the travellers checks in my pack. Made for a difficult summer. Edit: An explanation about the traveler checks for those who think it should have been easy to get my money back. 1. This was late 60s, no credit or debit cards for teenagers, no mobile phones etc. A lot of people scammed with travellers checks and almost certainly the person who got my pack managed to use all or some of my checks. Banks were in no hurry to reimburse. 2. In addition, I was dumb as a rock and had my ID and the paper with the numbers of the checks in my pack as well. Thus no chance I could get the money back while on the road.
