Biggest mistake I ever made was at a good-sized technology company where I was a senior writer. Being a helpful individual, and someone who could figure out technology pretty quickly, I once stepped in to operate the company's busy switchboard (back in the days when there was such a thing) during the HOUR it took for a temp to show up. Really bad idea. They never really saw me as anything other than a switchboard operator after that. That short stint completely destroyed my credibility as a technical professional. Lesson learned.
