    I'd like to share with you what was the worst time of my life.

    Due to incaution of my side, a company's property has been stolen from me, which caused me troubles at work.

    I felt so bad when it happened, and just wanted to bury myself deep in the ground.

    Fortunately, due to me being a valued employee (at least until that point), I was not fired after that incident.

    It was tough accepting the fact that I failed big time after building such a good reputation at work.

    Now, I'm trying to put over 100% effort to earn back my good name at work.

    Just wanted to share it with you.

    I had an oscilloscope stolen when doing maintenance.

    I also crashed a company car.

    It wasn't an issue in both cases.

    This was long time ago. Now I am more careful.:D

    Stuff happens, the main thing is to learn from it.

    I once left tools, a big box of spare boards at the airport pickup area, I really did not have a choice (back when you could leave stuff untended). Went to get my car carrying the scope. Pulling in front of my home I thought to myself "I'll leave the boards and the tools in the car and just take the scope inside, wait boards? tools? Oh no they are still at the airport".

    I had to drive a half hour back to the airport. Guess what, everything was still there! :)

    LOL!

    Happened to me too. I left a laptop at the airport... Came back 15min later and it was still there! Lucky me. This would have been devastating, I used to carry around ALL software and schematics/PCB layouts with me. :rolleyes:
