What's your biggest SW:TOR fail?

I had my epiphany concerning "slightly blue-glowing objects are not always good" on Taris. Klick the dead Jedi, wham, dead. But I found it slightly amusing to watch the level 40-something on Voss summon the nightmare pilgrim while we waited for our raid to assemble. Ok, that wasn't nice, but....

But my personal, greatest fail was on Balmorra. SWTOR is my first MMO, so I had no idea what I was doing and attempted to do a H4 together with another player, he wrote something about cc this, cc that and then this and that, and I didn't understand a word of it and just jumped in, and yeah, well.... didn't end in glorious victory.
I gave up on that quest and it took me until VOSS to discover what CC is. And I was wondering why I died so frequently! The fact that it took up until level 36 or so until I discovered my protective bubble might have contributed to that.

Gonna rat out my wife. She's just started playin SWTOR with me and hasn't run into many of the game's fine points yet. Helping me run a second account character around she discovered the pleasure having a personal speeder can bring. Feverishly playing until she leveled enough to get her own speeder on her character she will now pull it out to cross the street. Well as happens to us all eventually a mob attacks her and blows her bike. Being the butt that I am I immediately say Oh no! Your bike is permanently destroyed now! Fortunately I immediately let her know I was just kidding or I might still be sleeping on the couch!

Next unaware that her speeder, which does indeed float off the ground, is unable to fly like a taxi she gracefully flew right off the taxi point on Nar Shadda and died far far below.

I don't have the time to go into all of my own epic fail moments but, I too have fallen to the Taris boss after clicking on the dead Jedi. D'oh!

Not clicking on the COD radial button when sending WZ medpacs/some stuff I'd crafted to someone else

Republic fleet, by GTN. While running along on speeder, going through crafting/mission stuff sending companions out, figure I'm safe because railing will stop you from falling over...

Well, apparently there's a light post or something at the corner of the railing, (don't remember exactly what it is at the moment) where if you hit it at just the right angle, it'll boost you up into the air just enough that you can then sail right over the railing...

Hah! Did something like that, intentionally, back at the beginning. I'm always looking to cut corners and get to my destination as fast as I can. This time i figured i would just jump down to the Hangar and my ship instead of taking the extra minute to go through the elevators at the center of the station.

Other than that- and i still do this occasionally, I'll be clicking like crazy at the Smuggler airlock cursing about server lag... then realize I'm playing my Shadow instead. Why won't this door let me in????

Rinse and repeat on the couch detail for that one by any chance?
