Made my day! Thanks, Ed! Now I have to explain to Robyn why I'm laughing. It's awful when you have to explain a really good joke.  :facepalm:

I would rather use a threaded hose connection.

About 2 years ago when I got my new car I bought a soap foam cannon. It uses a quick disconnect so right after soaping you can pop off the tank and spray water. Well the first time I washed my brand new car I pointed the nozzle at my door and shot the whole tank right into it. I now have a nozzle tip shaped ding right in my driver door where I get to see it everyday.

HDMI could have prevented this!

I'm sorry that I found your last line funny.  Perhaps, paintless dent repair?

Yeah I just need to find the time. A shop wanted $300 to fix and paint it, but I told them I'd rather pay $1000 and you didn't paint it. It's silver.

Just like with shop-air hoses and quick disconnects, you have to expect that there will be some residual pressure propelling the item being disconnected.  I use quick disconnects on my garden water hoses and never had a problem.

I bet you've also had your hose for a while too. I have to buy a new one every single year. Even though I roll it out on the lawn to blow all the water out and coil it up nice in my shed. Still every year I get cracks or big bubbles that burst. I didn't buy one this year and there where a few pin holes every time I used it. So this winter screw it I'll leaving it outside.

Yes, my garden hose is few years old.  :D  I used to buy the cheapest one I could find, and those lasted a season or two. I now buy the more expensive one and it does seem to last longer.  It is still made of green plastic (vinyl?). The black rubber hoses are the most expensive, but they are wicked heavy.
Like you, I drain mine before winter and keep it rolled up on the hose cart. I used to take into the basement, but last couple of years I left it outside.
