                        No accidents. I have no reason to lie. I honestly don't care when anyone potty trains unless your kid is like 5 and in diapers, then thats weird. But your mocking tone and anger tells me you are really just intimidated. Which is weird. Its potty training. Whatever is easiest for a parent is fine with me.
