Today, my dad used the stove to boil water. Unfortunately, he turned the wrong burner on, setting the smoke alarm off. What's worse was the smell of burning plastic that came from the coffeemaker being melted down. It's been over an hour, and my eyes still burn like hell when I walk into the kitchen. FML

Some old electric stoves have an outlet built into the front. Depending how his kitchen is laid out, the easiest way to plug in the coffeemaker might be to sit it on the stove.

Not that I've ever had such a stove, or been dumb enough to cook any appliances with it...

sorry... fml only gave me 300 characters to work with. the coffee maker was on the back burner and the pot of water was on the front burner. My dad was going to make spaghetti for dinner.
he ended up turning on the back burner and going outside where my mom and I were. 5 or so minutes later the smoke alarm went off.
