This is a question I'm glad nobody saw me

Have you ever done something, realised how stupid or embarrassing it was and then looked about to see if anyone watching? Did you get away with it?

i deleted the whole of a 3 week animation project, the day before it was to be delivered, thinking i was just cleaning up the file structure,
It was on a server, so no recycle bin options were available.

Fortunately i had made a partial backup for my own records (i was freelancing)on DVD the previous day and was able to resonstruct 90%, then worked late to re-do the rest. I shudder to think of explaining to big business advertising company that their ad campaign wouldn't be going on TV due to my fimble fingered deleting tactics.

I once got caught out in a computer-based assignment in school where I claimed to have lost a lot of work due to somebody else deleting my files. The teacher did this and retrieved only a word file containing little more than the assignments title...
