place I worked someone decided to warm up their fish stew (tomato
based) without a covering. This person got a phone call in between
grabbed his food and left. The worst is he actually realized that it had
splattered but decided he did not have "time" to clean it up...all day!
Imagine stuck on fish and tomato hardened and stinking inside a microwave on a late Friday afternoon found on Monday morning.
We did find the culprit but what a stink !

was house sitting and after two weeks I noticed a smell that quickly
turned into a stench. I could not find the source until my friend
tracked it down. In the microwave was a moldy, slimy, bloody piece of
steak (?) or burger (?)!! Rotting flesh is the worst thing I have ever

worst thing I ever found in a microwave at work was when I worked in a
school. I went to warm up my lunch and there was about an inch of
congealed fat all over the inside of the microwave. It looked to me like
someone had cooked a whole pound of bacon in there and then just left
the mess. I actually waited a day or two to see if the culprit would
come back and clean it. They did not. It was the end of the school year
and my office was open through the summer, so it fell to me to clean it
up. Needless to say, it was a disgusting job.
