I went on a call to fix a non functioning disposer. It was far from functioning it was filled to the brim with rotten garbage soup that would not go down the drain. The smell was overecoming and I was carefully looking at the situation for it is early in the morning and the thought of going all day smelling like that mess was disturbing.
I had a plan of action get the water level below the top lip and remove the entire unit filled. I obviousy had already disconnected the drain line and the water and mess stayed in the unit minus a couple of drips. It was a Maytag disposer and had top clamp that would cut loose fast if you loosened. The maytag units were very heavy and filled they could not be manged to stay level with arms outstreched so I plugged  drip with a rag and layed down below disposer and disconnected. The weight was excessive but I was able to keep it level and not spilling as I moved it across my chest. I began to get to what a safe zone and decided to speed up the unit knowing the less time under the unit the better.  This is were everything went wrong, In my obsessive detail to get the thing out I forgot to disconnect the power line. Well you can imagine what happened when I ran out slack! I ran out just above my pants belt line and the entire contents landed on me. I could not have done that better if I had tried. I almost had a stroke in that cabinet I was so mad. It took along time to laugh at that.
