Done that, alright.

Even worse was when I had not drained my immersion chiller. I dropped it in the boiling wort and water in it boiled out through the exhaust hose that was hanging near my shin. I would up with a blister about 4 inches long and about an inch wide on my shin. Not smart.

Had to hold a 200 degree copper line while the wife installed a hose clamp on the counterflow chiller that I didn't think I would need.

Told a little white lie to the wife this weekend and got caught. She didn't think it was white. OOPS!

Edit and Crap - I thought this was generic oops not only beer oriented. Whatever I thought I'd share

Measured my gravity while the wort was hot and calculated a poor efficiency. Used the same poor efficiency in my calculations for my next batch and used far more grain than was needed for the recipe. oops!
