So did the quick connect fail or did the hose?

Or was it operator error?

Totally idiot operator. I shut off the hose so that I could move it. When I popped the quick connect (to remove that section of hose), water just exploded. Surprised the crap out of me that these shrinky-dink hoses hold so much pressure.
