Staying too long at jobs. It's actually happened multiple times. It's important to remember you're the only one who's really going to look out for you. If you're in a bad situation and can't change it, it's time to move on.

Second place is not getting things in writing. I had a boss at my first tech job who promised us he'd take care of us if he ever sold the company, but we had no contract. When he did sell, he rolled up the next day in his new Lexus and I got basically nothing.
