That is until I look back over my shoulder and I see my wife almost in tears from the laughter. Apparently my brain had somehow blocked out her howls of hysterical relief.
Lessons learned: ...snip... learn to laugh at yourself and learn from the experience.
I would add "Experience is what you get when you didn't get what you wanted."
Glad that things went well for you, even if it wasn't perfect. I haven't had the experience you had when you removed the cap, but I'm always nervous when dumping and at least double check what I'm doing. In fact, I always rotate the cap and pause a bit just in case
even though I haven't had your 'experience'.
