Statute of Stupid

Everyone makes stupid mistakes. I feel like I'm particularly accomplished at them sometimes.

Recently, I made a real lame-brain mistake at work. It was a total rookie moment that I cannot (cannot!) believe I did. I fixed the problem, apologized profusely, and said a number of Hail Avids.

When do I get to be forgiven? What is the statute of limitations on Stupid Error? I throw myself on the mercy of the court. (I'm really freakin' tired of hearing the little side comments!) Any workplace lawyers that want to take my case?

(Note: edited to correct spelin' mistake.)

Perhaps the statute of limitations last as long as does the statute of limitations for your saying "statue" of limitations.

Zing!

Yeah, clearly I muffed that one. At least I only bungled it once. If I had done that in the title too, it would be permanent in the URL.

Thanks for the correction.
