Have any embarrassing horticultural moments?

Another thread made me think of this. So far I have a number of pictures of family members looking annoyed at me when I asked them to stand next to a tree for scale in a picture.
No doubt my terrible foreign language skills and my habit of reading instead of watching videos has resulted in me seriously mispronouncing some latin but no one has called me out.
Back in the 00's I ordered a grafting kit and 25 Cornus florida seedlings from the Conservation department. My attempts to graft from a pink flowering tree in my yard resulted in 25 deaths. My girlfriend at the time still went on to marry me though so I guess it wasn't that bad.
