In one of the largest tech companies in the world, a recently-joined intern messed up. The intern sent out a blank test email to thousands of the company’s customers.
A major faux-pas, if there was one.
The company immediately tried to fix the situation, apologizing on social media that it was a fat finger type error by an intern.
“Yes by an intern, so don’t blame the company.”
What I loved was seeing how the internet reacted to that. Truckloads of messages poured in of examples of people’s own mistakes, and more importantly, how they have still managed to survive and thrive till today!
Mistakes are a part and parcel of life, as long as learning from them is how we use them.
