This should NOT be funny, but it is!

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Ok so DH and I were roofing a flat patio deck today. Which means we use a high temp torch to put roll roofing on.
Well, about 1/4 of the way through it, his pant leg caught on fire... Not a huge flame or anything.. just a small smolder. He panicked like a little girl! He started to take his pants off on the rooftop! !!!!!
I calmy walked over, told him to hold still and grabbed both sides of the cuff and put it out. ( I have fire safety training ). He wasn't hurt or burned at all. But lord you would have thought he was!!!!!!
I just thought it was soooooo funny since I'm usually the one who panics and he's the calm one. If you were to hear him tell the story you would have thought his whole body was engulfed in flames! I mean seriously, it was not that big... It just caught the strings on his pant leg cuff..I know this shouldn't be funny, but it is.. He was SOO mad at me because I laughed the whole time. He's since gotten over it and is laughin too. And they say WE'RE helpless women who panic over everything???????

That has to be the funniest thing I've heard in a long time! But you know, that doesn't surprise me. My dad is like that. He's all talk, but when something happens...lol He wanted ME to kill a roach one time because he was scared.

It's funny because nothing bad ended up happening. As long as no one gets hurt it's hilarious!
