Facepalm

The last time I allowed my niece to use my toaster she put whatever she was trying to toast on a paper plate, in it, and set the whole thing on fire! Undecided

Oh wow. That shit is a bitch to clean up too.

I'm particular about toasters. It should accommodate four regular slices of bread or two loaf sized pieces. It should also be wide enough to handle bagels.

It's a tall order.

But above all else, it should fucking toast the bread.

I just made "toast" and had it put it down a second time, because the first time just warmed it.

The second time set off the smoke alarm.

Kids, dog all come running into the kitchen.

Seriously what the hell was I thinking?

RE: Ranting corner
Ordered some things at work that were delivered a couple weeks ago. I didn't receive an invoice and called to follow up since I was told that they now charge late fees. I asked for a copy of the invoice and for it to be noted that I didn't receive the invoice until nearly three weeks after the fact. I was sent the invoice and I responded with a thank you.

This is the response I received - please tell me how you can stay employed when your communication skills are as follows:

You welcome. I made not that I sent the invoice late so. I you recieve anything about charges shot me an email.

Facepalm

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

I had just spoken with her on the phone minutes before. Didn't sound drunk and I didn't detect an accent. It seemed to me that English is her first language, it just didn't translate well into the written word. Thankfully, I knew what she was trying to say.

But still - Facepalm

Husband likes toast that looks (and tastes) like charcoal. I inevitably forget that and end up with charred bread on the first attempt at making toast for myself.

I don't know exactly what she did, but there was a semi-incinerated piece of food, and the tiny remains of a paper plate, when the cloud of white dissipated! All that got burned outside the toaster itself was just a little blackened area on the counter, and the wall behind it, but I don't fuck around with fire.
