    If You Can’t Stand The Heat, Stay Out Of The Microwave

    , | Phoenix, AZ, USA | Employees, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink, Physical

    (I’m at a fast food restaurant having a meal with my family.)

    Me: “This chocolate turnover would taste better if it was warm.”

    Stepfather: “Ask them to heat it up. The worst they can say is no.”

    (I ask the nearest employee if they can heat up the turnover.)

    Employee #1: “Sure!”

    (As promised, Employee #1 puts the turnover in the microwave. However, he soon returns without the turnover.)

    Employee #1: “I…um…your turnover caught on fire.”

    Me: “What?”

    (Overhearing this, another employee speaks up.)

    Employee #2: *to Employee #1* “Did you put it on our wrapping paper?”

    Employee #1: “Yes.”

    Employee #2: “The wrapping paper with ALUMINUM FOIL on it?”

    Employee #1: “Yes…”

    (To this day, my family’s new saying is “The worst that can happen is that your turnover will catch on fire!”)
