When you are taken by surprise, you don't take the time to weigh up your words.
When my honorary grandson recently hit my sensitive parts with a baseball bat, I suppose I should have said, "Please do not hit my private parts with your baseball bat". What I actually said was unprintable. You'll have to take my word for it that I did not observe the rules of grammar, even though I am a native speaker, a teacher, a writer and a teacher trainer.
