I too, have walked into the sliding glass door, and also walked into the screen door on that sliding door, sending it, and me, crashing to the floor inside... and, yes, there was beer involved :p

Anyways, your glass tops must be cleaner than mine for you not to notice they were there.

I have had similar stuff happen to me while I was trying to do 2 or more tanks at once. I have what people say is "No short term memory". I get up to grab something and forget what I was doing when I enter the kitchen lol.

Now I just do one at a time and devote my attention to that one until it is done. Then and only then do I move onto the next. Even if I can only get that particular one done today, tomorrow I will move onto the next.

I've forgot about the python while I was refilling the tank. Until I heard water hitting the floor. Don't worry those glass tops are new, give them a couple weeks they will have a nice film on them and won't be so transparent. I really should clean mine so the light will shine through. That's pretty funny though.

I've spilt food a few times. I gave a house key to my uncle a while back. I came home to find he dumped a whole can of fish food in my aquarium. I was really POed. I put a sign on the tank DO NOT FEED FISH!
