Accidents happen in life, but they're not all created equally. And hey, if you're going to do something, do it big, right? I know that's the way I usually do it — I can't just spill a mug of coffee, it has to be the whole pot. If I'm going to fumble anything coming up the stairs from the basement, it will be the basket of clean laundry, for sure, and it will land in the cat litter.
Mind you, as bad as those scenarios are, they're nothing compared to the messes the folks below have gotten themselves into. Aren't you glad you don't have to clean these things up? Where would you even begin?
