Social media bomb
Worked as a marketing monkey at an off-West End theatre, writing blabber for social media. The latest musical production was based on hacks set in 50s America so I had the idea to make themed posts based on events in the US at that time. One of the biggies was the invention of the hydrogen bomb. So trying to be clever I wrote something along the lines of: 'It's been over 50 years since the invention h-bomb. Thanks for half a century of world peace.' Cue dozens of angry responses and complaints from people who missed the sarcastic tone and proceeded to give lectures on history ('there have been 4 wars since then!')

It was one of the last things that was posted in the evening before the office closed so it was out there for nearly a day before anyone in the theatre noticed. My manager responded vehemently: 'Very sorry an INTERN was left on our Twitter account and is still going through his teenage humour phase. It wont happen again.'

Wasn't treated well there before or after. They had it coming a few years later in a friend's tribunal for unfair dismissal, I cheerfully described to the hearing how the manager used interns for head massages and had regular meltdowns involving plenty of her own F-bombs.
