Today, my boyfriend wanted to make breakfast. Since I usually do all the cooking, I said that was fine. Four hours later, my boyfriend and I were sitting on the sidewalk across the street as the firemen sprayed down the burnt remains of our kitchen. FML

Was there a spider?

It's the thought that counts :)

wtf was he doing for it to go that bad?

Fires can start quickly, and get out of hand just as quick.

I can see it now. He went into the kitchen and thought what is this contraption. I think you turn this knob. O look a small flame. I don't think that will cook the breakfast fast enough. Throws some gasoline on it and Um sweet heart lets just go to ihop.

#19 I didn't say that fires can't get out of control. I know that. I meant what could have he have attempted to cook for a fire to start.

Anything greasy.. Bacon maybe.. Or if the house is messy.. He didn't clear the stove off.. Any number of things.

"Let me just cook this food with a newspaper on the stove next to the burner." And yes I've seen someone start a fire because they had their news paper on the stove reading it while cooking. They just hit the other knob and lit the burner under the newspaper. People lack common sense and if they normally don't cook or never learned to from someone they can easily burn a house down.

#56 Gas stoves make flames to cook over.

I don't question people's ability to cause havoc in the kitchen after my cousin caught my turkey on fire...

This is frighteningly true. I had a roommate just out of college that couldn't cook except for hamburgers. He never learned to follow a recipe or other basic things of cooking. It was hard to believe and it seems like guys being clueless about basic need to know things is getting worse.

Here in NZ it's the opposite. Females are the useless ones in the kitchen. I had to teach my ex how to start a vacuum cleaner. FML

The ugly women there must be completely worthless.

It's the thought that counts :)

He couldn't stand the heat. So he got outta the kitchen

Actually cooking is one of the most common ways household fires are started...

i accidentally started a fire making ramen because i turned on the wrong burner where a ceramic shallow dish of butter was sitting. my family had put the butter there and i didnt notice. butter melted, butter dripped, fire started

OP should've thought of supervision, but like a dumbass she didn't. YDI case closed.

Make sure you remember "it's the thought that counts" when someone burns down your kitchen.

Was there a spider?

Not anymore there isn't.

That spider must've been the size of a tic tac

He listened to us and set fire to the spider...what he hasn't anticipated was the amount of damage that the fire would cause... Well, it's not our fault he listened to us...

This is just awesome

Next time, go for microwaved pizza.

How the fuck do you microwave pizza.

24- With a microwave and lots of love

You buy a frozen pizza and put it in your microwave..

You need water to microwave food without it creating plasma and exploding, especially with pizza.

No dude, you're stupid. I have microwaved pizza lots of times. If you time it for about 45 second it will be fine. You don't need water.

Have you tried to microwave ramen noodles without water?

That's only ramen

Oh my god. Seriously, this has to be one of the most intelligence-lacking arguments I've ever had the misfortune to witness. Microwaves use well...microwaves...to cook food. The waves convert water, sugars, and fats directly into energy in the form of heat. Frozen food is chock full of water; dehydrated food is not. THAT is why ramen noodles won't cook.

42, please remove the word "hockey" from your profile picture before making assinine comments such as your involvement in this entire thread...

Hahaha "creating plasma". Physicists have been wasting their time for years. They should have just microwaved a pizza.

You actually can create plasma with a microwave just put in a cut open grape or a candle flame and and start cooking

Actually, microwaves just vibrate polar molecules (see water for instance) at ridiculous frequencies to produce friction heat in the food. Ramen noodles aren't particularly polar so they won't heat. Put water (polar) on them and you're off to the races.

Is it just me or has the FML community reached new heights of intelligence lately? If you compare the comments between the ones made in 2008 and now, it's really quite astounding...

#24, very carefully

its the effort that counts guys. mr hockey here is just trying. be patient

#46 I love you for that comment, this thread was giving me a headache and you put an end to it

You know, you can sprinkle water on leftovers before you microwave them. I do this with fried rice to keep it from drying out when I reheat it.

Is nobody going to make a comment on his profile picture being Ron Jeremy?

This needs a follow up.

"Hi, OP here. Everything I own is now a pile of ashes because my boyfriend failed to microwave instant noodles. We're having his IQ tested at the end of the week, because he said, 'I thought putting it in for longer would make more noodles!'"

"Hi I'm #15 an decided to put a comment on here that makes me sound inconsiderate to OPs whole situation"

At least he only burned the kitchen and not the rest of the home? I'm sorry OP! Maybe that's why they say us women belong in the kitchen, because if we aren't it'll be destroyed :P

So you're saying only women are supposed to cook? Wow. The 1900's called, they would like their ideologies back, please.

Thats a fantastic way to piss off the feminists, great job.

I know that was meant as a joke, but you pissed of the mem AND the Feminists

Feminists, only want to be treated equally until it comes to paying the bill or doing hard manual labor.

61- That isn't feminism, it's sexism. Sadly too many people don't realize that they aren't the same thing.

61. Everyone is entitled to their opinions, but making one single group the butt of a problem is a joke. All of the 'ism' groups are silly, everyone needs to shut the fuck up and get over themselves. No singular group should ever be held as better than any other. Seriously, people are people. Fuck. Most of what's wrong in the world is caused by people subjegating others based on stupid principles and ideologies. Again, people need to get over their own silly prejudices and shut the fuck up and live.

Cooking Toast can get out of control

If youre cooking toast.. thats gonna be some burnt toast..

Very true #7, I remember once I popped some sliced bread into the toaster like any other morning, and boom! The damn toaster bursts into flames.

Pretty easy if you don't clean the crumb tray every so often.

I keep my whole kitchen very clean #138. It was just this one time the toaster decided to short out and self destruct.

Damn, that's one way to get fired up in the morning.

For real I bet OP was hot and very bothered after that experience!

That's why women need to be kept in the kitchen!

Hey, as a male, I make a damn fine omelette

Will the guy known as Jbroadbent please refer to #6 and the ensuing argument.

As unfortunate as this is, he had good intentions. Atleast no one got hurt.
