28. Even without gas lines blowing up I don't trust gas appliances

One place I rented, the pilot light would not stay lit on the stove. I was told to light a wooden match, put it next to the hole to light the oven, and close the door. Well, when I did that the oven blew up! Not actually, but it filled up with gas, then caught, and blew the door out. In that small kitchen the prep counter was close enough that the door hit me in the hip and I had a huge bruise for a couple of weeks.

I have not lived in a home with gas appliances since. The house we built ten years ago is entirely electric and since we're in the country there are no gas lines within ten miles. I feel much safer now.
