A silly annoyance

We have microwaves at work. It's nice to be able to heat up my lunch or a cup of water without going downstairs to the cafeteria.

But what's up with people leaving time on the microwave? They'll hit the Stop button early for whatever reason and just leave random amounts of time on the microwave. Drives me crazy! Why not go ahead and hit the Stop button again? Then it's at zero and ready for the next person. It's not like we're saving anything by leaving seconds on the clock, and it's rarely in an amount that's truly useful. Nope, just random seconds, usually between 7 and 19.


This bugs me far more than the over/under debate on toilet paper.

For the record, I don't care which way the toilet paper goes. Mine's all stored in canisters so the cats don't destroy it.

Hah! That bugs me too. My husband also does this. Although it doesn't drive me as insane as the penchant of both my husband and son for opening doors and cupboards and not closing them.

I don't even use ours because it always smells like enchiladas.
