Scenario #7:

Never do a weekend of drinking when you're the only one who can respond to those late night (aka 1-3am) on-call issues. Tends to blur your focus and concentration when you're working off a hangover and that's occurring in a datacenter instead of in bed. Also, before doing any updates to any OS, refer to Scenario #6 about 5 times (can never have too many backups!).
