I cannot believe that I almost caught my house on fire with the space heater. I guess that this is what I get for ignoring and laughing about the dumb directions on the packaging of the space heater. I have been using space heaters for years. I do not like having to use a space heater, but since my furnace isn’t the greatest furnace in the world, I have no choice but to use the space heater. Once I am able to replace the furnace, I can finally get rid of the space heater, but for now, I am not worried about it. When I bought this new space heater, my wife told me to be careful with the space heater. She was afraid that I was going to catch something on fire with the space heater. I laughed at my wife because I thought that it was ridiculous that my wife was worried about the space heater. I have been using space heaters for a long time. I wasn’t going to burn anything flammable on the space heater or anything. However, I still almost caught the house on fire with the space heater. That is what I get for not reading the directions. I did not realize that the wife for the space heater was thicker than usual space heaters. I plugged that space heater into an old outlet, and within a few hours, the outlet had melted and was shooting sparks on the carpet. Thankfully, I was walking by the room where the space heater was located! I guess that I should have listened to my wife and looked at the directions on the space heater.
