This was years ago, but I remember reading an article on Quick Home Spruce Ups. One of which was to line the wall behind a woodstove with vinyl peel and stick tiles for a fresh new look! I give that about half an hour before all the vinyl starts to melt.
I worked my way through college, back in the 20th Century.
One of the things I sold was Contact vinyl shelf covering - then packaged in one BIG roll that the clerk cut off as much as the customer wanted.
An older woman came back in with a melted mess and wanted a refund of her money. She'd use the vinyl as wall paper in her kitchen (it could be cleaned more easily than paint or wallpaper made of paper) - and had left over yardage, so she'd covered her stove to match...
Then she'd turned on the stove to make dinner.
The melted mess had been on the stove and I'm not sure how well the splash panel behind the stove had done, she was a bit hard to understand due to what the politically correct now call a "heavy accent" (and using the wrong words that sounded almost like the right ones didn't help) - the assistant manager finally cut extra Contact paper to replace the melted mess but told her that vinyl shelf paper didn't work well on hot surfaces.
Which led her to ask him if "she looked like an idiot"?
There was no polite way to tell her that she was the one who had come in to demand a refund or replacement on four yards of vinyl shelf paper that had melted off the sides of her stove....
There is no way I would rent a handbag for $XXX a month - seriously - I don't spend that much on a new handbag if I were to buy a NEW one every year for the past three years. I might get up to $100 - but not $375!
And they were such small handbags, too! For that kind of money, I want Hermione Granger's bag of holding that is large enough to store a library, a tent, an Invisibility Cloak, and whatever else that got pulled out of it during The Deathly Hallows...
