My classic move is to have the switch on from puffing the previous shot, adding beans, and closing the cover with the basket and funnel nowhere near the chute.

Started pulling a shot without a cup in place this A.M.

Ages ago I went to fill the reservoir of Silvia and nearly poured water into Rocky.

Oh yass. I prep the basket outside the portafilter, and periodically forget to insert it. Shot tends to be kinda weak. :roll:

Then there's the time I poured orange juice into my "cappuccino". Latte art definitely suffers.
