I left 2 Makitas at a job in Southampton. They weren't mine so had a few apologies to make

Plugged a router into itself by accident, caused a network loop and nearly brought down the whole Sheff Uni network.

Got a right bollocking for that one.

Losing a work laptop

Parked my car somewhere I thought was free to park when it snowed, went back a week later and it had been towed. I'd parked a little bit on a zig-zag. Cost £350 to get back

You're actually quite lucky, you can get points for parking on white zig zags as they indicate pedestrian crossings.

Crashed a forklift in a warehouse and almost killed my colleague.I just jumped out just in time but watching him run away whilst dozens of pallets of mdf wood crashing around him was epic. The forklift was pulled up by a crane and needless to say I was removed from forklift duties indefinitely haha

Years ago, working in a phone shop I left a phone with a customer, they didn't keep an eye on it and it got nicked. It didn't turn out to be a big thing though, luckily. Other than that I've managed to make no major fuck ups at work since. I'm counting the days til it happens though...

When working for Ocado many yrs ago when I first finished uni I pulled up somewhere in north London on the side of the road and was trying to sort the sat nav out. A few people were staring as they walked by so I looked straight at this bloke who pointed to the top corner of the £40,000 Merc van which I had driven/smashed into a large road sign without noticing.

I reversed back to see the sign had been bent in half where the van hit it, decided to drive off....quickly. Finished delivering all the shopping and got the van back to the dept, feeling very worried, but they never noticed it and somehow I never had any come back..phew!!

Lucky!

as a kid, was playing in the street with my mate and 'pretended' to aim a rock at him and lobbed it at the floor hard just beside him, missing on purpose. but it took this almighty ricochet and bounced up high and came crashing down on some car bonnet. done a runner indoors and my mate grassed.

not major but i shit myself at the time

You're sleeping on the sofa tonight

I always tell people to have their wedding date engraved on the inside of their ring,purely for the fact the man will never forget his wedding anniversary

I didn't bother sending my mate and his Mrs an anniversary card for the wedding I was best man for a year ago. Probably should've.

When I was 19 and a second year apprentice I had just been put on the company vehicle insurance so couldnt wait to tear the arse off the vans and pretend I was a real adult. The first day I was allowed to drive them, I reversed through a wall with a 3ft drop on the other side, so the back 5ft are sort of dangling over the edge, Italian job esque.
Shifting myself that I was going to get sacked, I asked the forklift driver on site to help me out, so along he came with his fucking huge truck. He put the forks underneath to lift the van back onto the road but it jolted forward, ripping out pipes and chunks of metal from underneath it into the road. So I just gave up and rang the office and was duly punished for my idiocy

I am shit at this stuff
You just reminded me to ask my brother what he wants for his wedding. He got married 2 years ago
Also forgot to get my mate something for his about 3 years ago, then heard from another mate his wife was slagging me off about it as I was the only one who didn't buy anything. I actually didn't mean to be a prick and just forgot and got them something in the end. No idea why they put on the invite bollocks like "the best give you can get us is your prsence at our special day" when they do want gifts. His wife hates me though, so....
