Did anyone else do anything stupid for the holidays?

I just got back in town and went directly to my baby discus tank. To my surprise none of the equipment was on! Some of them didnt seem that bad but I am almost sure the smallest will not make it. There was no water movement, no heater no nothing just water and fish for 3 days. The temp of the water is 65.9 degrees, far from the 82-85 it should be.
So this is the result of a quick water change before I left and hurried out the door.->Lesson learned, dont rush doing your maintenance.

I feel like the stupidest fish keeper alive right now.

Anyone else have this ever happen?
