Some of you know I'm bach'ing it weekend. Karen went to a bowling tourney and some much needed r&r. Everything has been chugging along pretty well until about 15 minutes ago.

I'm waiting on my girls to wake up, so I'm surfing & puttering around the house. As I was getting ready to make another pot of coffee, I noticed that there was some "mung" (city water chlorine) on the nozzle. Cleaned that & decided to let the pot soak for a minute to clean it too. Moved the maker and wiped under it, then moved it back and went to check New Content.

When I moved it back, I must've bumped the lid, closing it. This triggers the water to flow...

These things brew 12 cups in about 45 seconds whether it's into the pot or all over the counter, floor, in the cupboards, down between the counter and stove, and under the dishwasher...

Sigh. Oh, well.
:laughingteeth: don't tell Karen, she'll be afraid to leave me alone again. :laughingteeth:

Well, at least the counter & floor got an exceptional cleaning. First a steam/heat sanitizing treatment, then a good soapy scrubbing!
I've done similar, by forgetting to put the pot under when 1/10th awake, but luckily my pot is small & slow! LOL

Doh! That's one I've done before too, but like Dan said, mine's slow. I solved that problem with the new pot though. It has a stopper that stops the flow through the basket when the pot is removed :laughingteeth:! I still don't think the basket will hold all 12 cups though!

It sure comes out fast doesn't it. Not that I would...... well yes I do know from experience.

I've percolated mine on the stove for about the last four or five years. By the time it's done, I'm completely awake.

Sounds like you have a Bunn also, and yes they will put 12 cups of coffee on the counter very quickly. I've done it a few times in the 20 years we've had a Bunn. I bet if you check with Karen, she has done it a few times too, and forgot to tel you. :confuse: :laughingteeth:

That is so something I do. Except for some reason I tend to forget to dump out the old coffee that was in the pot when I am in a hurry and then starting it, then finding that the pot overfilled and is all over the counter.

I am sure there are many of us who have or will do the same LOL

Ya know, at this point in the discussion I'm thinking I'm glad I never aquired a coffe addiction.....Then I think about how I'm addicted to Dr. Pepper, and how you can't just unscrew the cap without the fizz spewing out of the bottle...onto the counter....the floor.....my hands.....and I realize I'm doing the same thing, only different LOL.

This thread is funny! I think all of us have done something similar through the years and when it does I feel like what else could go wrong then I think "don't ask that question Bill you might find out!"

We've all done that stuff. One of my worst messes was the time I decided to make lemonade just before some guests came over on a hot summer day. I made up a pitcher and put it in the freezer to get it cold. Later I took it out and found it was frozen. Looked at my wife and said "This stuff is frozen solid" tipped the pitcher upside down to demonstrate that fact and out all 2 quarts of it came all over the kitchen. Not frozen that solid after all! Big mess, Big embarrassment !

I will tell you now that the basket will not hold all of the water put into the tank. I've been there and tried that. Our coffee maker also has a cutoff if the coffee pot is not in place, but it will continue to brew. The coffee can't get into the pot, but will continue to brew. Lots of paper towels seem to help.

Sorry that you had such a mess to clean up Alan. I know that I have done my fair share.
