What stupid mistake have you made with your cameras?

I can name two:

- Camera was in single shot drive mode. Pausing after a while to review, most of the shots were way off exposure-wise, but not all. Since I had taken frames of different subjects and composition, no clear pattern emerged as to what was going wrong. Turns out bracketing was still engaged ...

- Switched from shooting bank 'A' to 'C'. All shots came out grossly overexposed. "WTF, I'm at base ISO ?" Turns out ISO in bank 'C' was still at 1600, from last time I had used bank 'C'.
