Hahaha :D

Thats just a bad day (funny) in the offiice, can happen to anyone with anything. Do it yourself, you know you want to!

Once drop a full can of "boil it youself" motorcycle chain grease in the kitchen.It promptly washed all over the floor and half way up the kitchen units before it solidified in a black grease line. The only clean patch was under my feet.
I had to jam the door to stop the wife entering the room and lie for 3 hours about why she could not come in whilst I removed most traces.
To this day she has no idea of just how bad it was :D 
No longer used solid grease chain lube!!

Ah, we have all been there, black sludge came out of one of our radiators and all over the wall and hall carpet when I was taking it off to decorate. It took ages to come out of the new hall carpet and never came off the walls until we decorated, fortunately she was out and didn't see it on the carpet.

Mike, I used to boil up Linklife on the kitchen hob for my motorbike chain, that was before me and the missus started living together, I then used an old camping gas stove, but the Linklife tin is too unstable, it fell off once, but was still semi hard, so enter my little portable gas range, it works great and is super stable and is useful to heat up anything in a tin..

My only incident with our cat (some time ago now, cat is long dead and buried in the back garden), I put some concrete down in the garage to cover the hole left by the gas board when they changed the meter. The cat stood in it while it was still wet (you can still see her foot prints) and then jumped up on to my sports car which was kept in the garage back then. The concrete marks came off the paint fairly easily, slightly harder from the soft top and the cats feet didn't seem to suffer at all. She was an outdoor cat, so didn't come in the house, just the garage and kitchen.

I was working on the car in the garage. I was using a 13mm combi. spanner. When I had finished the job I lobbed the spanner onto the bench. It hit a large can of pressurised Waxoyl which promptly exploded. Some of it hit me in the face and required a petrol soaked rag to get it off. I basically undersealed the garage wall and roof and worktop.

I have mine trained. Anything like this is classified as "man glitter" and is NOT a problem.
