This weekend, I learned that if you put dishwashing liquid instead of dishwasher gel into the dishwashER, that thing that I always thought was a total exaggeration from sitcoms of a huge pile of suds taking over the kitchen actually does happen.

On the bright side, a huge mess of soap suds is, of all the huge messes that could wind up spilling halfway across the kitchen, pretty inoffensive, and totally hilarious. Also, it turns out that dishwashers make AMAZING bubbles -- very dense and fine and long-lasting.

Extra thanks to longueur for the baffled and friendly, "Is there some reason there are suds all over the kitchen floor?" and the cheerful cleanup job. Sadly, he didn't think to snap a photo first.
I'm feeling: chipperchipper

My wife has a tale about this, and why I'm not allowed to say, "What's the worst that could happen?" anymore.

I, too, have first hand experience that dish soap and dish washer detergent is NOT interchangeable. Also, the floor got SO clean. And I was the butt of all the jokes for a while.

Oh what a pain
But funny in retrospect I imagine.

I'm sorry that happened and also delighted with the idea of a world in which "suds all over the floor" is the sort of thing that might have had a plausible explanation!
