Phone rings while you're travelling for work.... "Honey? There's a problem with the tank"

You walk in the door at 2am after being out for the night and you hear "drip....drip....drip...." - or nothing at all.

Reminds me of when I was a little kid (6ish?) and I unplugged the sump pump in the basement so I could plug in my cassette tape player. (for those of you without basements, your sump pump keeps your basement from becoming a fishtank)

Over $100,000 damage due to a faulty GFI powerstrip made in China. The good thing is that no-one was injured and the insurance covered the tank but not the livestock.
