Worst cooking experience ever?

So, today was one of those days - I wanted to make the Chicken Paprikash that was posted on Serious Eats earlier in the week. Everything was going well up until I tried to add the caraway seeds. I've never cooked with caraway seeds before, so bought a new jar for the occasion - only I couldn't break the seal. When I finally broke the seal, I also lost my grip on the jar, and seeds went flying all over my kitchen, most of it landing in the skillet. I tried to scrape out as much as I could, but the paprikash is completely inedible. At least I was dining alone - no witnesses! Note to self: open up everything before cooking! What is your worst/most embarrassing cooking disaster?
