Two phrases my fiance says often: “You left th burner on again.”, and “Looks like you’re making toast, but the toaster isn’t plugged in.”

Yeah. Been there with the stove on for an extended period of time. I’ve also been there when I fell like I can’t do anything right. Sucks. Feel your pain.

I‘m don’t have any rings on my phone, so here’s a   gif to cheer you up. (I hope it works!)

When I moved into my first apartment with my fiance, I spent the evening unpacking with my mom and one of us had bumped the stove knob (I did not know this at the time and did NOT think merely bumping the knob would actually result in the burner turning on—this is an electric stove so no flame). I walked her to her car so she could go home and when I came back into my apartment building, I heard a fire alarm ringing down the hallway and thought to myself, “Glad it’s not me!” (I’m a big klutz…)

WELL. As I walked closer to my unit, the alarm got louder and my confidence was slowly diminishing. I opened my apartment door and saw a kitchen towel in FLAMES on the stove. I immediately ran to the burners, grabbed the towel by the inch that wasn’t coated in fire, threw it in the sink, and turned on the water. I had to open all the windows to let the smoke and haze out, and eventually got my smoke alarm to turn off. This was all at like, 9pm on a weeknight while Fiance (then SO) was still at work.

I was suuuuuper paranoid because I could not figure out HOW this had happened. WHY was there a towel on the stove, HOW did the burner turn on, WHO was sabotaging me? I finally calmed down and figured out that when we were putting items in the cabinet space above the stove, one of us must have hit a knob and was able to recreate that action later. And I guess one of us (probably me) left the towel on the stove while I was unpacking that box and got distracted, leaving it there by accident. Was super embarassed when Fiance came home and had to tell him why the new apartment smelled like smoke.

I’m so glad that you and your home is safe, and completely understand that situation. I’m paranoid about the stove now, even two apartments later. Hope you get a bit of a break from stressful situations and ohhhhhhh how I want charcuterie for dinner…

I looked for my sunglasses for half an hour this morning. They were on my head. I’d say that’s a pretty “winning at life” moment.

Moonrise :  You’re not alone. I’ve set napkins on fire, too! I also melted the ceiling of a microwave once. Apparently metal paint on coffeee mugs is a no-no. 🤣

I always leave the oven on & my SO is constantly reminding me to double check it, 

one weekend when I first moved in I was so happy because the house was holding heat so well in winter, excited thinking YES this place has excellent heating, no no no, I just left the oven on and it heated the house from the middle inwards. HAH

My old room mate used to leave my stove on all the time… that one was the gas stove. Thankfully that apartment was huge because I’m pretty sure my cats would have died from monoxide poisoining. I was always paranoid of that.

Monday my bf locked us out of his apartment. Literally walked out the door and left his keys in the bowl. I was so annoyed hahha. He asked his poor friend to go get his extra set and I was bored and just decided to do some work while I was sitting there.
