Odd job:
Baseball umpire

Embarrassing on-the-job moment:
Sent the salary data for the entire company to the wrong fax number – thankfully, that number was not in use, so nobody saw the information.

Best advice:
Be thankful for those who have helped you at Mac and strive to be that person for those that follow.
