My Evil New Flat Iron

My Revlon flat iron that I had for years finally died. Seriously it was at least 4 years old, my mom bought it for me one Christmas. So I went and bought a new one. I decided to get another Revlon since my other one lasted so long. I found this cute pink one that benefited breast cancer research. Even more exciting was the auto shut-off feature, so if you forget to, it will shut itself off after an hour.

This was a huge deal for me because I am always paranoid that I leave my flat iron on. I have major OCD when it comes to appliances. I check like 5 times before I leave the house to make sure the flat iron, the toaster oven, and the coffee maker are all off.

So yesterday, I used it for the first time. It has 20 different settings and I had it on like 10 because I have pretty thick hair and that's what the package said to set it at. Well, the damn thing got so bloody hot it singed my hair! Thank God it was just a small section underneath.

I decided then that maybe I should read the directions. My bad because it said the first time you use it to start off on the lowest setting. Oops. Well, today I am pissed because I turned it on, the light came on, but the panels never got hot. Now I am going to have to return it for another one. What a pain in the ass. Next time I suppose I'll read the directions first.
