In a previous life, I was tasked with trying to scrape an automated migration task together on the DB. It was a fairly organic operation that required me to work in production. There was a lot of back and forth between my target and production and I had to drop the target DB frequently.

The hours got long, coffee ran out and just as I had wrapped up the task, I decided to clean up for one last test run. I started by deleting the target db. But it wasn't the target. It was production.
