Mike, you and Jane were doing great! Why'd you break up?

Was it worth it?

Occurs when peeing late at night or early in the morning, (usually accompanied by an unfortunate boner) when the pee-er fails to turn on the light due to sleepiness - leading the pee-er to urinate in the darkness and get piss all over the floor.

Common responses include "fuck it" under the pee-ers' breath, but responses NEVER include cleaning the stray urine off the floor. (sometimes leaving the mother to clean it)
MOM - John, did you pee on the floor?

JOHN - Sorry, I took a shot in the dark

MOM - Fuck it
