Today, at my fundraising job, I got my biggest donation ever: $500. I accidentally added a zero and charged the donor $5000. What I got: an angry phone call and a lecture from my boss. What I didn't get: a donation. FML

Lol how do you accidentally add an extra zero especially since if I kbew it was the biggest donation, I would have been very careful not to fuck up. Maybe thats just me

Go big or go home! Or, in your case, both.

I think it's an FML because you got caught...I seriously doubt it was an accident.

Well that was uncalled for.

was just about to ask the same thing. how??

I think both of you need to look up the word “accident” and it’s adverbial form.

You really should be careful when doing stuff like this. YDI.

Then you said to the donor, "nah, I'm only messing with you, I meant $50000."

How?? Do you use credit card swipes or electronic tablets? You should let the donor fill in the information on the device. And receipt confirm the amount (assuming your org gives physical receipts) before you make it out, it'll give the brain an accuracy boost. These are both things that we do at the nonprofit I work for.

You are an idiot!
