Here is one you definately do not want to do:

You have a document in a work-group with a dozen other files which uses the elipsis in an obtrusive style "dot space dot space dot" and you want to replace it with the three dots together.

Search: ". . ."
All Documents
Replace All: "..."

Then you quit for the day.

Next day after doing enough things to render "Go Back" useless, you are working on the document and you see some strange things

I will not be one-upped!

Take any of the errors above:

Search: wit...elightful
Replace: with a delightful

All Documents

Oops!

I have got to stop getting up at 3:00 in the morning to do this stuff.
