Ouch, that hurts!   When our son was in high school, one of his friends got a job at a golf course doing groundwork.  The 2nd day he was there, he was told to take the cart out with liquid fertilizer and spray the greens.  Unfortunately, he put Roundup in the tank instead of fertilizer. That was his last day on the job...
