Biggest Workplace Mistakes

"Writing snotty comments about an e-mail that came from upper management and mistakenly hitting 'reply' instead of sending it to the intended coworker. Ugh!" -An ADDitude Reader

"Forgetting to take my meds on the day of a job interview and interrupting my interviewers several times. I covered my blunder by apologizing and saying I was so excited to be interviewing with such a wonderful group! Looks like my sweet-talking worked. Two years later, I’m still working for their company." -Lori Lachanis, Newmarket, Ontario, Canada

"Correcting my boss loudly, in front of the whole office, for using an incorrect word." -Ed, Arizona
