Is there anything you do wrong over and over again?
I routinely heat frozen vegetables in the microwave. When cooking broccoli or cauliflower, there will be a little water at the bottom of the bowl. Every time, I decide to simply pour it down the drain without using a sieve, thinking I can will the broccoli to defy gravity. It never works. Just now, I ended up with a sink full of cauliflower.
I asked this question to distract me from my misery.
