A spike.
Looking down at it sticking out through the top of my boot/foot was a definite 'oh no' moment.

My cat takes a large piece of tuna, carefully places it in my shoe and then eats it - well most of it........

2 am this morning. Walking into a puppy squishy surprise on the laundry floor that says she hasn't cottoned on to the 'don't poop overnight' section of the housetraining syllabus.

What's worse is having morning sickness at the moment and a hypersensitive nose. Makes cleanup a real joy.

I can think of a few girlfriends of my youth that I wished I'd never trod on, paybacks are . . . . worse than the girlfriends were.

Nails are no fun, I worked for a contractor that would fire any carpenter who threw down a board without pounding the nails back through. I thnk he found a few.

Funny thing about sheetrock walls. They're fine to put a foot through until you hit a stud behind the wall. Split toebones take weeks to walk on again.

Same is true of a half-hearted pound on the top of a cushioned sofa. You'd think a soft, cushy sofa-top is the perfect outlet for teen angst. But nay, hidden only inches beneath the padding lies a solid crossmember that when struck at just the right angle will snap the bone on the outside of your hand like a pencil. Sounds like one too.

Cat Vomit and Broken Glass are both pretty unpleasant.

That'd be those UK three-pronged plugs you could probably use to balance a tank on? I remember the pain.

Anything that strikes between the knee and the ankle. Right now my desk is looking real good as a source of kindling. As soon as I can walk over to get the axe. I caught a rusty nail and a scorpion in the same summer of fun in East Texas as a kid.
