7+ People Who Shouldn't Be Allowed Near An Appliance Again

Do you have a love and hate relationship with certain household appliances? I think I do. I mean, they help us do stuff and all, but on the other hand, I feel like sometimes they hate us. But at least I know how to use them.

These people, however, completely misjudged what their appliances were designed for and used them in the most inappropriate way with tragic results.

Overstuffing a washing machine doesn't seem like that bad of an idea, but trust me when I say it is. This poor woman could barely keep the door closed.

Doesn't this look more like a horror movie scene rather than tomato soup that someone tried to warm up in the microwave? Wow.

Load Comments

I feel lucky that I've never had these types of problems using my appliances.

So my advice is that when it sounds too good to be true, don't do it.
