@b3ta recently asked Twitter to share their work related fuck-ups. Replies OF COURSE came in thick and fast from all corners of the world wide web.
The reason being? Well it's obvious... we all fuck up at work!
I've made many a mistake at work. My most embarrassing was when I tried to radio my co-worked on our two-way radio, and instead switched it to the P.A. system and broadcast my entire radio call to ENTIRE STATE ZOO!
My most expensive mistake was when I worked at a furniture removal company and sent an entire removal truck (plus 5 burly removal men) to the wrong address. Oh, and it wasn't just the wrong house number on the right street.
It was the wrong house, on the wrong street, in the wrong suburb, almost an hour from the right house. That one was bad.
If this is something you can relate to, check out the tweets below.

Jokingly typed "It's OK, I had him killed" in a work group Skype chat. Accidentally clicked wrong send button, sent it as an SMS with no context to 500+ individual employees, including the CEO of each office around the globe https://t.co/dL0ZyRjQti— Chris Applegate (@chrisapplegate) May 3, 2018
Served a customer an undercooked bacon roll. He angrily returned it. I made him another, but in my panic and shame cut my finger. Bled into the roll, all over bacon. It was the last bacon we had. Served him it anyway to look lowkey. Watched him eat my blood.— Andy Hill (@AndyHillWrites) May 3, 2018
Not me, but my favourite is a friend who worked at a gardening magazine. They ran a double spread of poisonous & safe-to-eat wild British mushrooms, but got the labels the wrong way around. All the poisonous ones marked as safe & vice versa☠️🤦♀️— Alice Ralph (@alicaurusrex) May 3, 2018
First ever office job. In the post room with a golden retriever curled up in the corner. Assumed it was an office pet or something so took it for a walk at lunch. Came back to find the distressed blind typist being comforted by several colleagues. https://t.co/iD1WPPUqhx— stabilo (@stabiloFFC) May 3, 2018

Accidentally sent a mass email to my old company’s thousands of clients that, instead of ending with ‘Kind Regards’, ended with ‘Kind Retards’. https://t.co/8LJF1fLaQk— Reb Day (@reb_day) May 3, 2018
I told a boss I was sick of being treated like a fucking idiot, caught my foot in the wire of his phone as I stormed out, fell over, smashed the phone and really hurt my knee. Then I just limped out. And never mentioned it EVER again. https://t.co/UJjVg3NrBo— hannah dunleavy (@thatdunleavy) May 4, 2018

Accidentally broke a $1500 MacBook on my first day. Didn't tell anyone and it ended up being sold. Guy came back complaining. Boss accused him of trying to scam for a new one and called the cops because he wouldnt leave. https://t.co/Eu2ZZDf9y4— s. zant (@maniadrone) May 3, 2018
First social in my smart Paris job. I was told to open more champagne. I had never opened champagne so I squeezed, pulled, twisted until the cork shot out. I drenched the French Minister of Culture, Jack Lang, Véronique Sanson, (French popstar) & 2 restored Steinway pianos.— 𝗦𝗶𝗺𝗼𝗻 𝗪𝗿𝗼𝗲 (@cumbriapiano) May 3, 2018
