However, my then lead @Vishnukumar_Vasudevan was kind enough and was cool, though he knew it from the support team via logs. Luckily it was a development instance and it was brought up again. :P
There was another incident where I was writing some groovy scripts. I was referring to the JIRA java APIs navigating from google page (without noticing the version of Java doc :P).
