I was the last one who left the house one day and I'm sure I've locked the doors but just not sure if I turned the burner off. I sometimes turn the flame low after preparing something and often I forget that it was not completely out. It's really not that big a problem if I'm in the house but when out, it's dangerous. I was already at work when I asked myself this question and I did't hesitate to go back only to find out that it was off. LOL I am sure if this happens to other people too or just me. Any similar incident?

add me in ur list, please. . i went out of the house to buy grocery and pay our telephone and electric bills. when i arrived at the department store, i found out that the wallet where i placed my money was not inside my bag. i only had the small wallet where i keep small change or bills. i could have withdrawn from the atm machine but my cards were also inside my wallet. i could not do anything but go home and retrieve my wallet. forgetfulness is an expensive thing and time consuming, indeed.

We can be good friends. hahaha That happened to me too, leaving my wallet. I drove around the city for almost a day without my license. Expensive, it is, indeed. It could have been more expensive had I been apprehended. enjoy!

my oldest son who had undergone a general anesthesia because of the dog bite also drove without a license. it was unlucky for him because the younger son quickly opened the right door at a stop signal (for those turning left), without looking at the next lane. a man in a motorcycle was hit and that caught the enforcer's attention as traffic jam ensued. my oldest son was very unlucky because he did not have his license with him, cannot go down and take a jeepney to get the license as he was wearing a worn-out short pants and torn shirt, hahahaha. i had to hurriedly finish dressing up and bring his license. good enough, the enforcer was an acquaintance of a relative. the man in the motorcycle had forgotten his license, too, hahahaha. that was a hard lesson for my son. we brought the man who was hurt to the hospital and my son could not disembark from the car because of the shabby clothes he was wearing (we only woke him up to drive for his younger siblings). what an experience really!

I say, he was fortunate. He could have been fined and fortunately the man was not hurt badly, it could have been worse. Lucky for him too to be connected somehow to the apprehending officer. I'm sure that incident taught him a lesson. hahahaha!

It happened to me twice already. One was during my college life where I was boiling water in a kettle. I forgot to put off the burner and left for school. When I arrived at noon, the kettle was about to be consumed. It's good that it didn't cause fire in the whole house. The second one was three days ago when I left the burner at low level because I am cooking rice. When I went back home at noontime, the rice turned dark. I am really forgetful.
