This is a question "You're doing it wrong"

Chthonic confesses: "Only last year did I discover why the lids of things in tubes have a recessed pointy bit built into them." Tell us about the facepalm moment when you realised you were doing something wrong.

Sham Pain.
A group of friends and myself were celebrating the end of exams (being the tax dodging wankery student twunts we are) and it fell upon me to open the bottle of bubbly I'd bought as a token of celebration. It was a bottle of cheap tescos own brand and all of that kind of lark, but it was more the fact that we were drinking champagne like real people must do to celebrate stuff. So anyway, I'd never actually opened a bottle of champagne before. I'd never paid much attention to it being opened at family do's and whathaveyou, more concerned with getting at the booze itself. I was rather trolleyed and simply saw a corked bottle. A cork. Obvious thing to do, Cork screw. Sorted. I pierced the cork and the bottle started to fizz. Rapidly.

What ensued was chaos reminiscent of basra. I'd drenched myself in champagne as the cork (and corkscrew) pinged out of the bottle and clobbered me in the face. I don't think my friends minded the loss of champagne just to see me come in with a bloody nose and covered in champers. Good times.

I finished the bottle by myself.
