On November 18th, 2018, Brent Crozier had a career-ending accident while working at the Mission Hill Winery in Canada.

It seems he was responsible for spilling the equivalent of 630 cases of wine down the drain…an estimated loss of over $162K for the winery. And he got canned. After filing a grievance with his union, they actually agreed with the winery (especially because it was the second time he’d done something like that in 18 months).
