I once flooded the kitchen and part of the way into the dining room. Usually
the sink could handle it. But I made one critical error, I'd forgotten to
run the garbage disposal.
Imagine my shock when I went into the kitchen to switch from drain to fill

I used the very tool that caused it to suck up most of the water. The
carpet in the dining room had to be peeled back so it could dry. What a
mess. Fortunately the husband had the "accidents happen" viewpoint.
