You leave home but there's a niggle at the back of your head..........I left the iron on.......the aircon..........the oven.........

A bakery in Adelaide's east has been destroyed by fire while the owner was having lunch in a house next door.

 

The Saint George Bakery on Portrush Road at Trinity Gardens was closed at the time, and the South Australia Metropolitan Fire Service says nobody was injured.

 

Fire crews are yet to find out what caused the blaze.

 

Damage has been estimated at seven-hundred thousand dollars.

 

 

 

 

 

Anyone here got any stories about shit getting left on..................or not?

That niggle is the best way to describe being dyslexic to non dyslexic people. It's always there with everything you do.

 

I cooked a pie just after midnight a few months ago and flew to Dubbo the next morning as I was flying out I just new I had left the oven on.

Got home to a very very warm house thank christ it wasn't on fire.

 

Edit. Lag dupe

Back in the bad old days, I awoke one morn' and staggered into the kitchen for much required hydration only to see the large burner on the gas stove flat out!

 

I was damn lucky I didn't fry in my sleep, or if the flame went out I would not have awoke either :P

I've done it a couple of times, mostly just left it on while we ate dinner. Being McHammered doesn't help, but I was lucky to have the chicka notice. And then yell at me. Lots.

 

I'm guessing this guy didn't so much "forget" to turn it off, as he did want to bake something.

i've done it from time to time on an oven where the dial can go around full circle and back to an off position. Sometimes it would sit just between full tilt and off, and of course it'd run until i realised and turned it off.

I work as a Chef and at work we leave the stovetops running, unfortunately that has turned into a bad habit at home....

I don't remember doing it but that's mainly because the oven is viewable from the living room.

 

My sister, however, left a hair curling iron on all day when she went to school and it was sitting on the carpet in her room. No damage done but the family was not happy with her for a while....

Sitting on the carpet could have been dangerous.

I find them on here from time to time and crack a shit...............and that's only in the bathroom!

See what happens when you leave out words?

Should have been

"I was more thinking he was getting a root from the next door neighbour."

I used to have an oven that would only stay on while the timer was non-zero. Good for keeping those nigglies away, bad if you need to bake for more than an hour at a time.

With the size of his resulting power bill I'd suspect Energex would have contacted Interpol to drag him back to pay it...
