yes, please all come and point at this twat in the corner!

My dh has just come in from work and noticed the iron was on.

I didn't unplug it after using it this morning before 8am, and didn't even realise though I have been home for 2 hours!

Can anyone beat that or just come and point and laugh at me please?

hair straighteners left on, laying flat on my carpet - for two days - we went away at the weekend. I felt like a horror bag. Don't tell DP!

differentID Mon 21-Sep-09 20:27:36

oh, that is bad. I wouldn't feel as bad except it was dh who found the fecker on! I've even been in the futility room twice this evening already!

I put our microwave sterilizer on the hob whilst I cleaned the kitchen surfaces the other day. An hour later, put pan of water on to heat. Sterilzer up in flames.
I too, am a twat.

futility room - I love it, just about sums mine up!!

I must surely win.

I put my full palm on the hob ring to see if it was hot. It was.

I did a similar thing with the iron.

I managed to catch the falling hot iron before it hit the floor. I should have let it fall.

sazzerbear Mon 21-Sep-09 20:32:04

I put my hand in the oven to get a pan out once and burnt it (although I was pissed, does this count?!)

This weekend I forgot to turn a gas burner off on the hob. I noticed when the oven glove I dropped on it went up in flames.

I realised I had left the iron on at home about 15 seconds before the curtain went up at a Ricky Gervais gig.

People tell me it was good, but all the worry really took the shine off it for me.

JJ Mon 21-Sep-09 20:34:56

And my husband set the oven on fire yesterday by putting hot chicken fat under the broiler. I'm still unclear what exactly he was doing.

JA10M you are not alone. My wife has caught a falling iron too.

I put the gas hob on one morning to boil some water as the kettle wasn't working. I came home from work and the gas hob was still on shock
Luckily I'd left the pan in the sink.

stripeywoollenpegleg Mon 21-Sep-09 20:38:23

have come home from work to (gas) hob still burning blush

also, a few years ago i came home from work, thought 'something's different, what is it?', couldn't work it out so had some tea, hung out for a while - then realised that the dvd player was gone, along with, on closer inspection, all the small electronics, cheque books, jewellery etc. yep, i sat in my raided living room thinking 'did dp move something from over there...?'

i am the twat

I have left my steamer on the gas hob till all the water boiled away & my lovely new steamer turned charcoal black inside & thus went straight in the bin.

TimothyTigerTuppennyTail Mon 21-Sep-09 20:50:15

I went out for the day and left the front door open. Wide open, not just unlocked. Oh no. When I f*ck up, I f*ck up BIG time!

I decided that I did not need a steriliser for PFB's dummies, would just boil them in a pot of water on the stove.

Went for a lovely walk with DH and PFB.

Came home to find the kitchen filled with arid black smoke.

Result: 2 dummies and 4 teat melted on the bottom of pan. And a kitchen the stank for weeks.

Bought a steriliser then next day.

Martha - I had to re-read you post - when you said "15 seconds before the curtain went up" I thought you meant "went up in flames" shock

Was impressed by your sixth sense!

Monkeygirl69 Mon 21-Sep-09 21:05:50

Left iron on, burnt cookery book, burnt tea towel, burnt chopping board, fell over infront of a long queue of people and cried. I too am a grade A twat.

Someone I used to know went on holiday for a week and left his iron on. He said it was very very hot in his flat when he got home .

Deeeja Mon 21-Sep-09 21:14:10

I left the car boot open all night once, with car parked in the street.

mumhadenough Mon 21-Sep-09 21:17:56

I have put the kettle (Electric!) onto the gas hob and turned it on! blush.

I have NEVER owned a kettle that goes on the gas hob. blush blush]

Came home late from a night out and didn't bother to close the door. woke up the next day and it was wide open. Was living in Hackney.

I was 2 hours into an A&E trip with DS when I suddenly thought "The iron's on"! Cue me franticly calling neighbour, who was at work but asked her disabled husband to haul himself up my stairs into my knicker-strewn bedroom where he found...
The straighteners were off. blush

Bloody GHDs have the worst design! They just roll over.angry
