tragedy tragedy :(

What do we call a cook who while trying out various spice jars and putting the basic salt-turmeric-chilli-coriander etc into the recipe, manages to make the entire spice dabba (box) fall upside down on the kitchen floor?

Good cook or bad cook, I dunno but this cook definitely needs to be patient enough coz it must have meant cleaning the whole mess, especially the mustard-cumin seeds jumping to reach every possible corner there.

:D or :( such things dont happen everyday.. after a!!


I googled this pic but most traditional Indian kitchens have this mandatorily & the one being discussed above was a pinkish translucent plastic one.
