How many cans of ravioli had he eaten at that point?
Of course, this is obviously a result of a food portion needing a few seconds extra, but it’s way easier to hit the +1 minute button. 40-55 seconds seems the be the time on most microwaves I come across
One time I went outside and smoked a joint. While I was out, the power flickered. It wasn’t an outage, but it was enough to reset the clock on the microwave. When I came in the clock was blinking 12:00 and for like 2 minutes I was freaking the fuck out. I had no idea what was going on. Luckily my wife came in, laughed at me, and calmed me the fuck down.
This is the first story I've read that started with "my stepdad comes in drunk at the end of the night" and ends well.
