Today, I made a fatal mistake that may cost my company thousands of dollars. This was right after I got a recognition for my outstanding work last week. FML

I guess it depends what kind of mistake you made. Should you have checked with a coworker to prevent it from occurring? Let's hope your achievements outweigh your mistake....

You probably won't be getting any more awards.

On the bright side, you're still able to type despite being fatally injured!

Nobody can tell if you are joking or clueless

What does that have to do with anything, it's not like his company would hire a mafia to make a hit on him

maybe he's just making a joke about the misuse of 'fatal' since no-one died

I thought he meant that the mistake would be fatal to the company.

#17 gets it.

But 17, there's wasn't a misuse of fatal, I'm addition to death, it can mean leading to failure or disaster, I think the disaster one applies pretty well in most cases like this.

Thousands for a company a disaster? Maybe for a person or a small business, but I don't know any who refers to a small business as a company, typically a shop. Will they be angry sure but they will live.

Well, you won't be getting any recognition for outstanding work this week!

Well, FML, it's true. This is a post that is meant to be posted on FML. Congratulations.

Is there anyway you can fix it?

Yeah, I think this FML needs a follow-up.

At least you have last week going for you

Sounds like we are twins.

Yikes, that's never a fun situation. However on the bright side, if you're such a wonderful employee, it hopefully won't be as big an issue as you think, and your superiors will be at least a bit understanding. Good luck!

Well, what did you do?
