Here's Your Sign

Whenever I look at packaging on store bought items, I always read the 'directions for use' out of curiosity. I mean, it's sad when the shampoo bottle has to tell you to later and rinse, right?

But then, there's always some idiot.....


I just ate a microwaved egg roll.

The directions read:
1). Place frozen egg roll on a paper towel lined microwave safe dish.
2). Microwave on HIGH power for 1 minute to 1 minute and 30 seconds.
3). Allow egg roll to sit 2 minutes before serving.

When they tell you to wait two minutes after microwaving, it's because stupid people like me have burned their mouths on it fresh out of the microwave.


  1. What exactly is it with people who can't wait a minute to eat something? I think all that steam coming off the body of it would be a little indicator to me, that I should give it a minute, but I've watched people blow on something smokin' hot, pop it in their mouth & then do the teeth & tongue dance of death. I don't get it. If you are that hungry have a saltine first. ~Mary

  2. In my case patience is NOT a virtue. It has nothing to do with hunger...I just simple can't sit and wait. 2-3 minutes is a long freaking time...(Hugs)Indigo

  3. Awww. That sucks.

    Have an ice cube and... wait the freakin' two minutes next time, 'K?

  4. I do that. Why wait? It's food and must be eaten.
    I cant wait two minutes to eat something. If I want food, I want it now!
    I'm the same with hot drinks. The hotter the better.

    People who wait the two minutes are the kind of people that follow rules man. They do what the government tells Its all a conspiracy man. They will end up as drones man. I say in my best Dennis Hopper voice.


  5. I do that quite often meself ROFL. Hugs and Blessings, Teresa

  6. I wish they would put directions on beverages that explain how to drink without spilling on yourself.

  7. The only time I actually wait is if I forgot I put the thing in the microwave in the first place.

  8. OUCH! I am afraid that I suffer from the same problem . . . I have no patience either!

  9. I wait until it's cooled off a bit, because I hate that wrinkly feeling on the top of my mouth when I eat something too hot.

  10. Hi I have been silently reading your blog for sometime now and decided it is time to stop being a stalker and say hi lol! I love your outlook on life, your so real. This entry made me pull out an old email I had of stupid warnings on different things and I posted it on my blog. Come check it out ;) My name is Robyn and it is a pleasure to meet you! Have a great weekend!

  11. LOL...who wants to wait 2 whole minutes?


  12. hunger over rules patience every time ;) maybe the should just include burn cream.

  13. I know why we do these things... you and I wait too long to eat and then we finally eat something when we are so hungry we are just famished. It's all the housework and kids and bills to do. We get side tracked and then we finally are going to eat and we have to wait two minutes? LOL ! I'm so there. I do this every time! I've even taken to poking holes in my burritos because they are so hot. But this only helps a little bit.

  14. It would help of course if I knew what an egg roll was? What ever it is it sounds like it's gonna retain the heat.
    as this comment is so late, I hope yer mouths healed ;-)
