                      The "foot catching" thing is something I've been doing for *years*. It's saved many fragile items from exploding at my feet but there was one time it backfired on me.
                      I was making tea for me and my Grandfather and the pot was glass. It was full of just boiled water when I knocked it off the counter (somehow) and instinct told me to stick my foot out to keep the *glass* pot from smashing. In the end I saved the pot but had to cut the top out of an old shoe so I could walk around outside for the next 2 weeks because of the extensive burns to the top of my foot. lol 🦶♨️😳😣

But on the other hand the most stupid thing you actually could do. Because as more often you are doing it, it becomes normal and a routine and then you doesnt even look anymore what is falling to the ground you just react. For some paperboxes fine, but dont try this with heavy metal parts, stuff with sharp edges or even Knives or what so ever than can shader and cut your feet open.
