Making mistakes is a part of life, and there's no way to avoid it, but some people are going to make mistakes so big that they cost them both literally and metaphorically.
Sleeping in past your alarm and showing up late to work is a simple mistake, but microwaving $5,000 worth of bills in order to disinfect it is a colossally bad move on your part.

One of the things any boat owner knows to do when they dock their boat is to check the plugs.
But sometimes you forget, and you end up with a shipwreck.

This is an unique situation.
Say Goodbye To That Phone

No Pilots Were Harmed, Just Planes

But they quickly learned their lesson, and now they realize why no other cars were parked there.

Of all the ways that you could've disinfected your money, putting $5,000 worth of $50 bills made of plastic in the microwave was not the right way to handle that situation.
If They Had Been Flying, This Wouldn't Have Happened
A train derailment in Montana left the state dealing with not just the damages to the train, but also the damages to those Boeing 737 fuselage parts that were supposed to be delivered later that day.
Well, this is where they can find them.

While in the process of (unsuccessfully) trying to save his $300,000 boat from sinking to the bottom of the lake, this man also managed to sink his truck and his Jeep.
Sounds like a country song.
They Just Wanted An Oil Change
Note to self: when fixing an engine, always remove all the oil rags before you give the car back to the customer.
Otherwise, they'll be coming back real soon.
Is It Cheaper To Move The Building Or The Panels?
Which came first, the solar panels or the building?
That building doesn't look it's been moved any time recently, so whoever was in charge of those solar panels apparently forgot that the sun moves.
Talk About Wasting Resources
Imagine having to be the first AAA guy who had to make the call into his own office to tell them that he had managed to lock his keys in his car, while on a call trying to help someone else.
Please, don't tell anyone about this.

You didn't buy that fancy car so that you could one day turn it into a doorstop on the back of a school bus.
But that's your punishment for never learning that you shouldn't tailgate a bus full of children.
That Is Not Music To Her Ears
You would hope that whatever movers you hire are going to be careful when moving your most prized possessions regardless of how much they cost.
But especially if they're moving a $200,000 piano.
The Landslide Certainly Brought Something Down
You can't go under it, you can't go over it, and you can't go through it.

They Would've Needed A Drink After That
If you're ever having a tough day at work, just know that this person shattered a bottle of wine worth more than $15,000.
Whatever mistake you made couldn't have been as costly as that.
Choose Your Seat Wisely
If there's a spot open anywhere that everyone seems to be avoiding or skipping over, know that there's probably a reason.
At least he doesn't have to worry about showering later.

Usually, you should avoid shattering your computer hardware, but this guy missed that memo.

Considering that there doesn't seem to be a lot of other traffic, it's hard to understand how this possibly could've happened.
It must've been some sort of glitch in the system.

Imagine having to tell your boss that you accidentally tipped over the multi-million dollar satellite you were working on.

Hey, at least now it's ready for an in-ground pool!
