Let the time run out when you heat something. Or clear it before vacating the area. Don’t leave 8 seconds on there.
Now I have to punch an extra button (after trying to punch in a time first) so I can heat something up.

Whenever I go to my mothers house, I take note of the microwave timer as it's always carrying the balance of the last thing she nuked. ALWAYS.
Drives me nuts, and I dont use microwaves.

Had a cat years ago that would jump on top of the countertop unit I had, then sort of "walk" down the front of it with her front paws. She turned it on more than once.

She's the reason I always keep a cup of water in the microwave even when I'm not using it.

I don't know, but maybe it smells something like burnt popcorn.



Any cocktail can be a shrimp cocktail if you put your mind to it, and if you carry lots of loose shrimp in your pocket.

I've seen some things, man. And some stuff.

Don't recommend it.

Had some Philippino workers that used to nuke their lunch at a place I worked at.

It was a very pungent odor, not something people liked smelling though...

My assistant is Vietnamese.

He is being passive aggressive and has been doing annoying shit like microwaving foul smelling foods. It was so bad one day that HR actually cleared the building.

My wife has the aggravating habit of heating something in the microwave and wandering off. Microwave beeps every 10 seconds after done until it drives me nuts.

^^^^^ Thanks for the Dilbert. My best friend, who passed away last year from Cancer, and I worked together for many years.

At our first job together, one of the guys he supervised passed away.

HR (the moron office) kept sending him memos that he must conduct an exit interview with the dead guy.

My friend kept ignoring those requests, and the dingbat office of HR kept requesting an exit interview with the dead guy.

Our supervisor walked up one day and stated that now HR the stupid office was on his ass about this exit interview and why was it not done?

My friend replied "Well, you know he's dead, and thus I can't provide an exit interview".

Long story made short, for awhile our supervisor and HR the imbecile department kept going back and forth with the exit interview request.

Finally, one day, the big big boss came up and asked WHY in the hell didn't the exit interview get done?

Well, Sir, the employee is dead, and we kept telling them that, and as our supervisor as well kept telling them that.

The Big Big Boss, actually the GM of the company, muttered something, turned red in the face, started to talk off, then turned back around and said, "I don't care if you have to fake it and make one up, just give those fools what they ask for".

So we did. He and I giggled at what we perceived the GM's reluctance to tell HR the ignoramus department to forget about it, and that you can NOT get an exit interview from a dead person, and to just make one up. So we did, we made one up and sent it to HR.

Never again was a word heard about the incident. HR became king of the company. (FWIW we were a local family owned national company with around 3,000 employees, not exactly small potatoes).

To end this story with a happy ending, my friend decided to write this up in a letter and send it to Scott Adams, the creator of Dilbert.

A month or so went by and one day my friend came into work and showed everybody the autographed Dilbert book that Mr Adams had sent him. The inside front cover featured a hand written note from Mr Adams stating that was one of the funniest things he'd ever heard and thanks for sharing it with him, and please enjoy the book.
.

We kept laughing about this (with all due respect for the no longer with us employee).

Thanks God ours doesn't do that. We get 3 beeps, and then nothing after that.

Re OKCGene's post about the exit interview with the dead guy -- I am enough of an asshole that I would have sent HR a photo of the gravesite.

You're both lucky. Our current MW, from Samsung, I believe, beeps out a freaking SONG when it's done and then repeats that every 30 seconds or so until you open the door. An honest-to-God electronic melody.

It's a happy little tune, but it's still annoying as hell. As is the inability to program times in anything other than 10 second increments.

They'd probably have sent it back saying it was in the wrong size or file format to be accepted by their system.

And I’ve stopped re-entering date, time, year, am-pm, night light, and all the other preferences…. 5 power outages in the last 3 weeks.

Makes me want to replace it with an old- timey one with a single manual timer dial, and a bell that dinged once when done.

Samsung is Korean . I used to work with a guy that lived in Korea for a year . He said every damn appliance played a tune . Washer , dryer , oven , hell even the toilet . Said it was annoying at times .
