Not only is this a handy pre-defined message, it's also a [[StockPhrases stock phrase]] commonly used by characters, e.g. young kids in cartoons after their innocent attempt to help out causes a series of DisasterDominoes. Another common use of this is when someone is on the wrong end of a RantInducingSlight or MinorInsultMeltdown as after [[StopHelpingMe trying a little too hard to help]].
