This is a question DIY disasters

I just can't do power tools. They always fly out of control and end up embedded somewhere they shouldn't. I've no idea how I've still got all the appendages I was born with.

Add to that the fact that nothing ends up square, able to support weight or free of sticking-out sharp bits and you can see why I try to avoid DIY.

Tell us of your own DIY disasters.

Disaster for my parents
When I was young, I, like most people, learned to associate certain senses with certain actions. Touching a hot object = recoil hand very quickly. "Just wait until your father gets home" = hide under bed, and so on. Around this time we had our boiler replaced.

My parents discovered the ramifications of the aforementioned process when, in a Chinese restaurant, some bloke in the kitchen started hammering away at something. Every time a certain 3 year old heard *BANG* it was quickly followed by "FUCK! FUCK!"

I had
a similar thing at about the same age. Any car starting with me in it was accompanied with 'Fucking thing'.
