My dad died earlier this year. Because of restrictions we couldn't immediately hold any kind of funeral. So we are making due with a memorial with his ashes in a wooden urn and his Angels - a set of three beautiful porcelain angels, each playing an instrument. These angels were bought in Paraguay when dad was on a mission in Brazil, and they were VERY VERY dear to him. He wouldn't let us move them from their shelf, not even to dust them. So for twenty years, they were in their places, playing their angelic music for him. Until he died, and then we decided to take them down from their perches and let them serenade him to the afterlife. Fast forward until last week, and my cat was playing around. He was on the table where the ashes were and he got a little too playful ... and I heard one of the angels clink violently. And I just about cried. One of the Angel's pair of wings had broken off. After all of those years, with my dad admiring and loving them and telling us not to mess with them, one of them had broken. Well. Nothing a little gorilla glue could fix, right? I waited until I was alone and glued the wings back on. Thankfully, no one will notice that for a few minutes, an Angel had lost her wings, but Dad must have gained his own.

We broke our dad's whole Beatle vinyl collection when we were about 10. He didn't give us the talk about how it's important to him, and what vinyls are used for, so there you have it. We threw them around like discs and smashed them against a wall.

How in the hell? When I was ten, I wouldn't dare to touch anything I didn't know the function of. In the moment the first one broke, I would've stopped and started to think. Vinyls are also big and look valuable for the first glance. How many big things were you allowed to break per month unpunished? This is so surreal.

I once broke my violin right before a concert.
I was at the concert and it was at the beginning so it hadn't started yet and I ran up some stairs to say hi to my parents and I dropped my violin. The bridge fell off and all my strings snapped. The pegs fell out. It was 5 minutes until the concert started.
I started crying (naturally) and brought all the pieces to my teacher, who miraculously put it all back together and got me new strings before the concert started. I was a little out of tune, but I ended up still being able to play for the concert.

so, picture this; a small robotic chick toy that chirps when you tap it or touch it. I adored the toy; had it for who knows how long. then one day, when I was ~8, I was playing with the toy in my living room, sitting on a wide, but small, soft stool. I drop the toy, it shatters on the floor. I sob.

I of course have broken something important. One time when i was 7 my sister wanted to workout for 10 minutes but we did not have an alarm clock. Then my sis said to set the microwave for 10 minutes. I said i was not sure if it was a good idea so i set it for 10 minutes. 1 minute in and the microwave caught on fire and blew up. My sister got punished cause i said to my mom that she forced me to do it.

My sister had a paper she needed to turn in for school. Mind you, this paper was 50% of her entire grade.

Well, one night, I'm sitting there, and the Roomba is going. I accidentally drop the paper off her desk. Not a big deal, is it? She can pick it up later.

Que the horrible crunching sound.

In horror, I find our Roomba has RIPPED THE PAPER IN HALF. I just hid it in terror and cried in my room. Then, I finally told her what I did.

"Oh, that's fine, I had copies."

YOU MADE ME HAVE A STROKE OVER NOTHING?
I'm still mad at her for that.

Not broken something. But a roommate of mine, who has traveled the world and had a lot of t-shirts he got from various places as a memorial, had packed these shirts in a garbage bag. Well, wouldn't you know it! I threw his t-shirts from around the world away with the trash. He went to the dump to dig around in trash trying to find them, but never did. Honest mistake! Maybe don't pack your valuables in a trash bag when moving? We're still friends and laugh about it now.

When I was like 9 I was playing Baseball in the house. (Can you guess how this ended) I hit the ball and it smashed through our window in our 2 week old house. Parents weren't that mad because they told me to practice so they said go outside the FIRST time I hit the ball, Through the front seat window out the passangers window and on top of it all the ball hit my 5yo brother and got cut by the glass. Oh not to mention we had the car for 5 days.

Uh, broke the dash of a car with my face in a car accident when I was 8. Safety belt should have helped, except the seat didn’t stay anchored in the track properly, so helped throw me forward. Thankfully I didn’t break my face, but I do still have scars inside my cheek and bottom lip from cuts caused by my teeth.

Did break my face (cheekbone) walking through the house, once. Slipped, hit chair rail.

We had a minivan which was one of two of our cars. We use it for road trips and it's very important. One day we went fishing and crabbing (basically just catching crabs in those large cages). We always put the crabs in a cooler filled with sea water, and then empty it at home, but this time I put the crabs, fish (the crabs & fish died but ok that wasn't my fault) in two large gallon buckets without the lids for air (since I thought they were still alive). We were going past a turn, and well... the buckets fell over, and two gallons of sea water and fish just poured over the trunk. Luckily it didn't stink too bad, but there was a fish that we missed while unloading that ended up going all moldy and had maggots in it but dang I had a heart attack when they spilled.

A leather seat. Walking from one part of the building site to another and my mate pulls up in his*brand new* pickup truck, it's a top end model, less than 50 miles on the clock. We chat about the truck for a bit then he says he'll give me a lift back to the office, so I jump in... and hear a sickening "rriiipppp" noise - and that's when I remember about the screwdriver that's pointy end up in my back pocket😲😨, which has cut a gouge in the leather seat. Had the whole seat replaced by the dealership which came with a four figure price tag (had to argue with him for weeks to take the money and not let him pay for it himself), but I still feel bad about it to this day.
