Are you afraid of microwaves?

Okay, so this may be a lame fear... but I am SCARED of MICROWAVES!

When I put food in it I walk away and try not to think about it being in there. I'm always scaed it is going to explode or catch on fire (kind of same thing).

When the food pops it scares me.

Are you scared of microwaves?

  • But gas grills scare me for the same reason microwaves scare you!

  • No, not scared of microwaves : P

    I do have my weird fears/phobias. Mine is meat. I can't touch raw meat. I can't think about meat being in my mouth or my tongue gets swirmy and uncomfy. It's odd. See I'll eat really dry meat or ground over cooked hamburger. Even then I avoid it like no other. : ) You you're not alone on the weirdness level. : )

    Here's a list of phobias their names and such. : )

  • Heh. No, not quite. I went through a phase where I was scared to completely close a door with my hand on the knob, though. I knew it was irrational, but I was afraid I'd somehow jam my hand in the door. I'd always swing the door shut instead of closing it normally. I guess we all have crazy fears. ; )

  • LOL, omg I just got a new microwave because the one I had started exploding inside everytime you turned it on, I'm normally not scared of microwaves, but that one scared the crap outta me lol, it made a really loud freaky noise too... But I am really scared of spiders, but I try not to kill them lol, if my bf aint home and there's a spider I catch it with a cup and throw it off the balcony as I'm screaming lol... they are freaky little things!

  • Yes. Angry microwaves are going to be the first line of attack in the Great Robot Wars. Don't trust them! The toasters are looking shifty, too.

    My irrational fears are mostly insect-based. Locust season, I live in absolute fear!
