When I was working for an engineering company they had just gotten a new support tech. He recieved a call from a user who needed another network jack in their office for a laptop. He went into the closet (which he wasn't supposed to do) and tryed to hook up the connection. About an hour later the rest of the tech support found the network was being flooded with bad packets and a group of people had no connections. Turns out he had taken the uplink from one hub and hooked it into another hub giving that hub two uplinks to the main switches. Needless to say he was fired the same day and sent back to the staffing company we got him from. The funny thing was this guy is supposed to have a MCSE certification. Don't know how he got it though.
