Do we learn from our mistakes ???

Do we learn from our mistakes ??? I'll admit that sometimes I don't! Case in point is my electrical connections organizer pictured below. I've spilled my organizers many times yet I still forget to lock the lid every time I get a new item out of it. This photo is the result of not locking the lid when I was done!

In the 45+ minutes it took me to put everything back into their individual organized compartments I kept thinking it was like a bad hangover where I'd say to myself "I'll never do that again" but unfortunately I know I will !!! Some things I learn from immediately and others well....

LOL... I've done that a few times myself... always sucks when you bump the container and realize that it is going to fall...but never have enough time to catch it... and it falls in slow motion...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

When I saw you photo I laughed soooo hard. Your photo says a thousand words. I have done the same and many more. Like forgetting to put a bungie around the Microwave. I have the glass turntable in mine which likes to go flying on a port tack.

The clean up is in really, really slow motion....

I've spilled this one too but it's not quite as easy to clean up. I like the color coded electrical connections for pick up over all stainless!

Yeah, the color-coding on the electrical connectors does make things a bit simpler.

I never like digging for Lego's in my Lego bucket and I don't like searching for nuts, bolts, screws or connectors either.. Besides I'd spill a Ziploc too..

The only problem I've noticed with the baggies is with screws over time. They tend to poke through and make holes and get a few here and there. and what halekai36 said above, must have been posting at the same time and you beat me.
