Default Pray For Me?

Finally had my first carpet burn from coal drop! My bad for using cheap tongs, so I gotta get better ones. I'm gonna try the tips I got from the threads here, but the burn is in the middle of the floor and the wife has been away for a day...

Pray for my use of the tips here, and that my wife don't kill me for the divot? Hey, she has been on my case for a new carpet anyway! The kicker is she does not allow me to smoke in the house... Another rule I broke (I'm a dead man)!

Get yourself a good sharp pair of scissors and cut off the blackened part. Then use a wire brush to fluff up what's left of the carpet. There will still be a divot there, but it will be much less noticeable.

Did this at my parent's house when I was 19. They never knew!

Looks like you should be preemptive and say "Honey, I have been thinking about it and you are right! We need a new carpet."

Whatever happens, don't forget to blame it on the dog and/or kids.

Re-arange the living room before she gets home, and when she hates it, tell her you know honey you are so right, let me reward how right you are with a new carpet since we have to move everything back anyway

you should go and buy a new carpet and give her the surprise....

That way you will end up as "the fantastic husband" and she will never ever know the awful truth

Carpet burns suck, I just try and smoke outside when I can to avoid that from happening.

UDATE: Thanks to the tips and tricks from HP members, the wife has yet to notice the rug burn! T-H-A-N-K-S all! I only wish she did not notice my hookah/shisha supply orders on the CC statements...

Damn dude, she's got you on lockdown, doesn't she?

I say find some leverage, like secret shopping trips she's made or something, and keep it so you can bring it up in your time of need!
