Default worst mess up during a build

I didnt want to post this in the build section, because I feel this would be a better place for it. so I just wanted to know if anybody has completely messed up during a build, and was just like wtf as soon as it happened. Mine was building a box for 2 sa-10 d2's, i made the box too big for my trunk, so i decided to cut it in half, but the guy helping me was drunk, so he kept moving the box while i was cutting, so it came out crooked. the next morning i got a phone call from him saying it was my fault

I just use the air saw on the trunk as long as panels cover it lol. If you're gonna cut the box in half, you shoulda just rebuilt it

well the guy that helped build it lived 40 minutes away, so he could only help on like friday/saturday nights, i didnt have the room for all of the tools. it took an unrealistic amount of time to build that box lol. i just wanted to get it done at that point

I let my two friends try to help by locating and cutting the sub holes in the top panel {which I had already trimmed to completely fit my hatch} and the first hole they cut did not land in the sub box. they ruined half a sheet of plywood.

[I've built well over 500 boxes.. probably over 1000 boxes.. but I didn't keep count]
[suffice it to say, it wouldn't have happened to me]


other than that, I think CACO could use a thread called 'When bandpass designs FLOP'.

well i wasnt really rushing it until we got to that point, then i was just like "ill just sand it down now".. and i wasnt drinking lol. the worst part is, when him and my other friend were both drinking while they built a box, it came out almost perfectly. they said it only works if everybody is drunk O_o
