Default I hate

Crappy quicklights and crappy tongs. I was enjoying the beginning of my spring break by having a session when, low and behold, i picked up a lit quicklight with the standard tongs h-s.com gives you and the coal exploded into several peices. now usually im ok with this since i keep my hookah in a big basket/drawer so the coal is safe to fall off but the force of the explosion and crappy grip of the tongs sent the coal flying towards the carpet. so i ended up with several tiny burns and one massive burn. i was able to cut up the part with the massive burn and replace it with the carpet under my closet but it's not the smoothest job. im so pissed since my parents dont know i smoke and this would be hard to explain without doing any further damage. btw i am 19 but i live with strict parents. well thank you hp for letting me vent. hopefully this never happens to anyone again.

Ugh I hate this feeling. It's like being back in highschool when you know you messed up and it's only a matter of time till my parents find out. If I could just erase 3-4 little black spots I think I could get away with it.

Hell, I've never had this problem... I use Three King QL so I don't have to worry about the carpet burning. Plus, it does not hurt to smoke in places that do not have carpets, such as a porch/patio/backyard area or a garage/basement...

Yea I got super lazy so I used the golden coals I had. To be honest it was more on me and the tongs. Ugh I feel like I should just confess since it's bound to be noticed someday.

I came across a thread about this in a search a while back when looking for something else. Maybe do a search for "burned carpet" or similar. There were 2 links posted for DIY carpet repair. One mentioned exactly as you did by using a piece from the back of a closet for larger spots. It also talked about slightly trimming the top black burn marks with a scissors. If done well you may be able to "erase" those remaining marks.

If all else fails they say the truth will set you free, but I'm not sure who "they" are.

Thnx for the help. I might try trimming it up a bit but my carpet is also not the right type for ghetto repairs. It's kinda woven in so making a cut could be disasterous since it could unravel more. I'm trying to fnd the right excuse to tell my dad. I think I'm gonna say it was a hookah my friend brought and he dropped a coal and out of panic we did a quick fix.

Well I've confessed my crime to my dad. I did have to bend the truth a bit and told him it was my friends hookah an it was a one time deal. It's funny how an expierence like this can put things in perspective. For now I've decided to stop smoking hookah till I get my own place. Is anyone interested in a blue mya bambino?
