#WTHWednesday – The Accidentals’ Salesforce Fails (Take 1)

Recently I have had the pleasure of getting out the of the org I had been comfortable in for about two and a half years and into a Lightning org. This led to several WTH moments as I swear my brain forgot everything it had ever learned about Salesforce.

The other Accidentals and I got to chatting about some of our WTH Moments and thought it might be fun to share them  – see if you can figure out which one of us had which moment and tweet us if you want the back story.

With that, enjoy this “Take 1” of #WTHWednesday, tweet your’s with the hashtag, or just treat yourself to a well-deserved laugh. You’re welcome. (If you like this, we’ll come up with more and highlight our favorites from your tweets!)
