Respond to this post with a cover letter about a real mistake you made and you learned from it.
For example; Troy, our Founder shipped a typo in a class name a bit ago and those are annoying because they might be easily missed in the Development environment but then production blows up. This led to a more robust CI+Staging step than we had prior.
