Street photography
#12
One time when I just had an automatic point-and-shoot Olympus Stylus camera with me, I was on a bus in what was probably not one of the safest parts of the city, and I saw some people outside the window pushing their car. In my rush to sneak a picture, I forgot to push the button to turn off the flash (by default the flash is turned on every time you open up the camera), and indeed the flash went off, not only ruining my shot but getting the attention of everyone on the bus, they were all confused and asking each other what happened, did lightning strike, did someone take a picture, etc. I was able to quickly hide the camera and nobody confronted me about it, but I was really embarrassed and scared for the rest of the bus ride. These days I only use cameras that either don't have a built-in flash or allow the flash to be permanently shut off so that won't happen again.
