One of my old colleagues had the bright idea to log onto one of our production systems to "re-index some of the database tables" after coming home one Easter eve.

And yes, he wasn't directly sober at the time.

I was moderately amused when I got woken up about 3 AM and got to spend a few hours trying to revert the "re-indexing" ...

I think integration with ssh-key management to prevent people logging onto production systems when drunk would be a good idea for this project, don't be surprised if there is a pull request from me in the future ...
