Well, let's just say that I understand the expression "stink eye" very well.
No, you can't, because you wishpishabonnyfish.

My roommate in college learned the hard way that if the steak you're broiling catches fire, you should not grab a paper plate and try to 'blow' the flames out.  I'm very happy that I walked in when I did.

I learned that leaving nail polish within 200 yards of a curious toddler will result in nail polish on your bedding, floor and toddler.  I also learned that that stuff will actually come out if you are willing to spend some time with remover.  I considered the sheets a loss anyhow and was pleasantly surprised to save them. 

Never try to change the toner on the fax machine because you don't want to bother the person who's supposed to do it.  Just let them do it.  (toner.  all.  over. EVERYTHING.  I think I cried.)

If you're going to catch your kitchen on fire, make sure your neighbor has five of his most attractive military firemen friends visiting at the time.

Worked for us :)

That sounds like a good plan :)

I thought of this thread a little while ago.

Now that I am the High Goddess of the Pressure Washer at my house, I decided to do the swing that's hangin under our deck. Worked great except of course the water pressure made the swing move around, so I thought maybe I should take it down. Except I couldn't reach the hooks. Hey! I'll just stand ON THE SWING to reach them!

Oh, right, that's probably a bad idea.

It was.

The second time roomie managed to catch the kitchen on fire, we weren't so lucky. But, at least then the building maintanence people believed us when we told them the oven was on the fritz!

When my 2yo son spilled nail polish on the carpet, he got some on his feet. When my MIL asked him what happened when she saw his feet later, he sighed and said, "Mess. Big mess."

3 years later when DD did the same thing, I called the carpet cleaning guy and paid the emergency fee. $75 later, the polish was gone without a trace.

My little sister used to be an escape artist (and for some reason mom wouldn't heed my sister and I when we suggested turning the crib upside down!). She got into the baby powder 1st. No matter how many times we vacuumed, whenever you walked into her room you'd see little clouds of white puffing up where you walked.

Then she got into the vaseline - and smeared it everywhere. Poor Pooh Bear had to be tossed.

How about this:  dishwashER liquid is not the same as dishwashING liquid.  One goes in the sink, and one goes in the dishwasher.  And there's a reson for that, too.

Bubbles everywhere!  Pity I had to miss them...

Well, at least you end up with a clean floor!

That sounds like something I would do! Thanks for the warning!

My roommate did that once. It was a heck of a sight. I couldn't get too upset, though, as it was only a few months after my encounter with the toaster (upthread).
