Kate: I accidentally pressed reply all to a work email – now the whole company knows why I missed an important meeting – I locked myself into my garage!
Peter: Accidently cloned a blank hard drive to a full hard drive. It was suppose to be the other way around. Managed to get all the data back (praise God for google!!) but it was close call with the boss for a sec.
