Over the years, when someone crashes something at work I (semi-jokingly) say:
If you don't crash something every so often, you aren't working hard enough.
And while that might not be 💯 percent correct, I feel it helps put the person at ease, especially if the person is new to the company. The truth is, it has and will happen to everyone.
So, have you 💥 crashed 💥 something important? Or brought the network to its knees? I'd ❤️ to hear about it.
