How Did You Screw Up at Work? – Results Are In!
Mistakes happen. We all know that. But some days it seems you can't win for losin'. Mike McKelly recalled this gem: "About 25 years ago, I wanted to vacuum the RKR studios and the only outlet in the room was right underneath the control board. What I didn't know was the vacuum cleaner was a higher voltage than was acceptable for that outlet. When I turned the vacuum cleaner on, we lost all power in the building including taking three radio stations off the air. That was a pretty big screw up."
