Today, I almost got our office burned down by plugging the wrong charger into a laptop cooling fan. Tried to hide the incident and kept it casual but the smoke detector led it to my area and everyone knew I was the culprit. I'm a new hire too. FML

So true! When I was at my old job, I hated when new hires tried to hide their mistakes and even try to blame it on someone or something else. People will respect you more if you take responsibility for your actions! Most of the time, people can tell when you're bullshitting or hiding something anyway. You won't actually get away with it, people will just call you an idiot behind your back.

I agree with you #9.

#12 I understand where you're coming from. This would be YLS if it was the simple fact that mistakes happen. However, the YDI comes in when you try to hide your mistakes, especially one that could put yourself and others in danger.
