you crack an egg into a pan and a small piece of shell drops in.
The egg white seems very reluctant to let it be retrieved.

Oh, just eat it!
My father always used to tell me that "in the war" when making scrambled eggs (from powdered substances) the navy cooks would always chuck in (chuck! ha ha) a whole smashed egg or two so that everyone would see a bit of shell and think it was all fresh!  Lips are sealed

Hate it when you knock out the signal for an AV sender!
Hate it when cleaning a surface especially a TV, dust goes back onto the surface.
Hate it when you are on a plane and there is violent turbulence
the list could go on!
