Perhaps a little too much pride
Last night I finally had to admit to my husband that I have no clue how to set our microwave to cook something for a certain amount of time. We've had it for almost a year and I've been using the automatic settings and taking things out at their appropriate cook time. He figured out how to do it forever ago and I thought "if he can do it so can I."
Well, I never figured it out and the automatic settings only go to 6 minutes, I needed to set something for 7. When I asked him how to do it he looked at me so incredulously. He shook his head laughing and told me I have too much pride. It finally made sense why I always set the microwave to 6 minutes for edamame instead of 5:15.
Alright, I admit it. I'm pretty darn stubborn.
It was so obvious!! You just press the power button and then it lets you hit the time!! I felt ridiculous having to ask 9 months after we bought the blasted thing. Husband definitely liked being able to help me with something I couldn't figure out, partly because it was so silly of me.
