Don't you just hate it when...

(Fill in the blank.) What got me started on this line of thinking was breakfast... Don't you just hate it when the toast pops up at the same time the kettle boils? Do I butter the toast before it cools off or do I unplug the kettle and make my tea before the kettle boils dry? Decisions, decisions...

Like when the phone rings while you're using the bathroom...I can never decide whether to ignore it or to answer it and say "I'm poopin' can you call back?"

That's why I had a long extension cord on my phone that reached the bathroom in my last place. One friend in particular would invariably call just as I sat down. The cord doesn't quite reach it in this place, though.

@sumofalltears Good thinking!

Toast would come first because it needs my attention first. A kettle won't boil dry right away.

It will if it's a small one and only half full.

Having to make decisions like the one you mentioned really could drive a person a bit batty!

That's easy, butter first and tea later.

That's right, butter doesn't get all melty on cold toast.

Too bad there isn't a way to suspend the toast over the steaming kettle to keep the toast warm.

Toast would get soggy, wouldn't it?

Actually, the bigger problem that day was the flush arm on the toilet broke off...
