RIP

The other day Tristan killed my microwave. He decided to "time himself" as he washed the dishes. He set the "Time Cook" to 10 minutes. So, the microwave was cooking nothing for 10 min. and I guess blew up inside. :( I am so bugged. This is the 2nd time he's killed a microwave. The last time he wanted to warm something up and I said "About 30..." meaning seconds. He set it for 30 minutes and killed it then too. It wouldn't be a big deal if I didn't rely on it so much!! I cook chicken nuggets, soup, burritos, popcorn, leftovers... EVERYTHING in my microwave. **sniff sniff** I'm so sad.

At least he's young and there's hope for him yet! I once saw an adult man try and warm up soup in a microwave using a metal pot. There was a lightning storm inside the microwave (very cool stuff) and then it died.

I once had a bag of microwaveable popcorn catch fire in a microwave. Stinky!

We had an employee once who overcooked popcorn (like jc). I was so mad! Brand new unit and now it smelled like crap.

Sorry about your microwave. maybe you should have a FHE about the proper use of a microwave.

PS: Double good points for Tristan washing the dishes!

The obvious solution here is to get rid of the kid.

Ha, I joke. Don't get rid of him, just threaten jail time.

I feel sorry for him. It brings back vivid memories of when someone in our house (and her first name starts with a "Y") cooked a burrito for Kyle and nearly burned the house down. That should have taught her to not watch March Madness BB and try to read the directions at the same time--I know how hard is it to put a burrito in the microwave and press start ; (

so sad. on monday max blew up the receiver for my stereo. i was just listening to a cd and he leaned over and turned the volume up all the way. it scared him to death and killed my stereo. it sucks big time cuz now i don't have surround sound when watching a movie. i can survive without it though. a microwave, i would have a hard time without one.

That just stinks! May it rest in peace. :(

I did that once. I was going to bake a couple of potatoes but I forgot to actually put the potatoes inside the microwave.

You must teach him the time function upon getting a new microwave.

I know what you mean about relaying on it and all. We wouldn't be able to eat with out ours. I usually don't get home until after 6 PM.

I hope you guys don't starve to death before Sei comes back! (JK- I know you won't- there's always cold cereal)

I am sorry for your loss.

That is the craziest thing I have ever heard. I am glad I read this because sometimes I cook nothing as well...just for the timer, ya know?....ooops.
