At the end of my first day, I back out of my parking space and accidentally hit a Lexus parked behind me. Oh great, my first day at work, and I dent somebody's fancy car. I leave a note of apology on the windshield, with my name, email address, phone number, and a promise to pay for whatever repairs are necessary.
The next day, I come to work, and I have a new email message.
From Bill Gates.
Oh my God, I dented Bill Gates' car.
Fortunately, he said not to worry about it.
