Hmmm, well there was that one girl I met at a party. We got pretty hammered and then we went out and.........

OH, you mean fish related mistakes...

I don't know, I've always had very good luck overall.
I guess one that sticks out is when servicing a tank in doctors office once that had three of these guys in it;

turns out their spines are poisonous and generally dirty/nasty and when trying to get one to move out of my way, he tagged me in the hand.

Hurt a little, but within an hour I was sick as a dog, a very sick dog, my hand swelled and I was ill for 3 days. It was actually worse then the two times I got tagged by lionfish.
My mistake was not being familiar with the fish.

Girlfriend got me a betta and a 0.8L tank or something like that which was my first first/"tank". Had it for about 2 days and thought I should change the water, so I put Gandalf in a cup with some of his water, dumped the water out of his tank and filled it back up with cold tap water and no conditioner, sadly Gandalf almost immediately started turning pale and slowly passed away. I was so sad, however because of that I am now into the hobby and do anything I can to help the fish.
