    How mortifying.... Guess Rookies make mistakes too?

    Couldn't help finding a little chuckle with this story and glad no one was hurt. I hope the Rookie picked up their dinner tab.

    And I thought I had a bad day at work today.

    Gotta feel sorry for the rookie. At least it will teach him to be more careful. I'm glad no one was hurt.
