    O.K., so I go into work this AM, and kinda had a falling out with the boss, upshot is it was brewing, and we are both MUCH happpier with me not continuing on at that particular little job. (Yes, I quit, wasn't fired).

    That's all fine and good, and is of no real importance.

    HOWEVER...instead of taking the day to ski on the pass, I had a nagging feeling that I needed to come home and deal with a few things...(My wife asked why I wasn't skiing/riding, given that I was now free, and it is a HUGE pow day, and I replied that 'I needed to get my ducks in a row').

    ANYHOO, I came home ten minutes ago, walk in, and smell the worst smell...gas. The stove had been accidentally turned on, with no flame, by the cat sometime this AM. Turned on high.
    I have no doubt that if I had stayed at work, or gone to play, the house would have exploded sometime during the day.

    MORAL:
    If you are unhappy, change your situation. Maybe, just maybe, you can avoid a massive tragedy whilst doing so.
    Peace.

    If I got rid of the cat, I wouldn't get any more pussy.
    If you will.

    Wow! Glad you caught that!

    And that's a good way to look at life. I constantly am thankful for the decisions I make figuring the other would've lead to castration.

    Good thing your cat does smoke. Maybe it was trying to kill itself once it realized it was a cat.

    That's super lucky for you, we had a smiliar situation with a cleaning ladies kid, damn near lost my eyebrows

    Well, kids, it turns out my WIFE left the gas on.
    BUT, she didn't know I would be home, so maybe she just wants a new house.
    Women, yeesh.

    Good catch on the gas (regardless of who left it on). Our stove doesn't have the actual knobs on it anymore because Syd (my almost-2 year old) likes to try and cook.

    I did the gas thing once. I had the bike in the kitchen getting ready for a ride. I guess when I grabbed it to go out the door the handlebars hit the gas knob and turned the burner on(pilotless). The wife said she smelled the gas when she pulled up in the driveway.:shocked:


    We also had the dog jump up and turn the gas on, but turned the knob far enough that he got to the electric start position. Unfortuntely, a non stick pot was on the stove. That is a nasty smell.
