I hate burning toast. Seriously, is there a dumber way to ruin food? Best case, you can scrape the burnt part off and salvage it. Normal case, you’ve just created charcoal. Worst case, the fire department is en route while you’re standing out front calling to check your home owners insurance.
For all cases, it you feel like a dope, and here’s why… it was completely avoidable!
If only you’d set the timer lower.
If only you’d waited patiently for it to finish instead of checking your phone.
If only you’d stayed in the kitchen where you could have smelled smoke.
The same principal applies to many situations (business, relationships, etc) – If you don’t pay attention, you might just find that your let that item burn without even realizing it.
