Flying Saucers

First trip of the season, we arrived at our destination after a few hours driving to find the microwave turntable glass plate shattered on the floor, and the microwave door shut. Yes, it was checked before we left. This is our eighth season with our 19, never had a problem like this. The roads were good, no major bumpiness or twistiness. I'm blaming it on aliens. Any other ideas?

Bruce

Aliens maybe, but I think it was likely ghosts, Bruce.

Call me a paranormal skeptic, but I'm going with "the microwave door wasn't latched all the way, the turntable fell out in a turn, and the door was forced shut when you turned the other way."

I know, me of little faith.

Sounds more like Gremlins, but at least now you know to check goodwill for a replacement.

Any chance someone washed it and left it on the counter?

Boo! Phooey! Poor sport!
What's with bringing logic to the table?

But if you are at all sceptical, I am even more so.

we travel with the Microwave Plate in the sock drawer because the aliens won't think of looking for it there. I heard they like to drive it around and observe "the earthquake going down the road".

Debbie saved the styrofoam mold from the original packaging and the plate rides well in the micro. Of course, we must remember to check for gremlins prior to departure.......
