Don't feel bad. I was working on a light switch in the storage at work today and wasn't paying attention, and I crossed the test leads and shorted the whole thing, which knocked out power the office and private dining room. Plus, it tripped another breaker on the emergency power circiut and it took ten minutes to find it.
Quite embarrassing. Luckly it was early and we had no customers.
