Okay, so as my fellow StartupNation team members can attest to, I may have accidentally almost set StartupNation world headquarters on fire today at lunch. Due to an unfortunate, lifelong mental block when it comes to math, I inadvertently doubled the cooking time on my lean cuisine instead of halving it (don`t ask why math came into the picture to begin with) and when I went back to check on it, thick smoke was billowing from the microwave in our kitchen.
Not sure what to do, and convinced that the whole microwave was gonna blow any second, I called upon two other team members to come in and rescue me from the eggroll blaze I was sure I had created. Luckily, no flames, but boy does it stink in here now and you could literally SEE the smoke throughout the office. My eyes are burning. You know it`s bad when the people from the office upstairs come down to ask if everything is okay, and you can barely stand the stench of being in the car with yourself while driving to Panera to get a replacement lunch.
So, while I really wasn`t trying to pull a Milton from Office Space and burn the place to the ground, I`m sure I`m not exactly popular around here this afternoon.
So somebody out there please share - ever done anything similar? Got any funny stories that will keep my teammates entertained this afternoon while their eyes are burning?
