Discussion on: Tell me about a time you messed up

We recently made a switch from environment foo to environment bar. After the migration to bar was completed, I assumed we could take foo down. For reasons, foo should have stayed up and I had to spin up foo within 15 minutes. I managed to do it, but that was not a fun time.

Takeaway was the situation could have been avoided if I had just asked "Hey, do we still need foo?".
