Have you ever had an "uh oh" moment at work??

I heard this podcast on NPR about a man in New Jersey named Louis who made an honest, yet HUGE mistake at work.

You see, Louis cleans people's homes for extra $$. A friend hired him for his services and left their key under the mat for him to enter the home. Angelino found the key alright, but it was the wrong address. 😂

The proper owner came home to discover that someone had broken into the house but at least they left it spotless! 🧼

Have you ever had an "oh no" moment on the job?? Share below!

That's a true meaning of " No harm,no foul". Hope the house owner remembers him if he can use a cleaner in the future. Ford As for my uh-oh moment a female keeper at the zoo took me to within 2 feet of a sedated silverback gorilla! I got out as soon as I could.You women can be mean,Ford

Yes several times I won't bite you going into it all but usually when I was new and still learning my job and I did something wrong or wasn't good at it yet. I remember one time in particular being new as an order filler at a Walmart d.c. and I had a large order on a pallet with eggs, yogurt and lots of other dairy products on it and I had not stacked things well and I went to fast around a corner and dumped the entire order everywhere all over one of the aisles. I was so embarrassed and felt so stupid because I had nobody to blame but myself. Anyway I cleaned it up and it never happened again but I felt pretty dumb that day. I think my exact words might have been "oh s*;?! " as I watched everything fly off the pallet and smash all over the floor. I can laugh about it now and my boss did not give me a hard time about it all which made me feel a lot better but I definitely slowed down a bit and payed more attention to my work after that day.
