I remember the first Thanksgiving I was married. We invited my in-laws to dinner, and I was going to make the Thanksgiving meal. I had the turkey in the oven long before my in-laws arrived, and when I went to check the bird, it just didn't seem like it was browning as my mom's always did. the oven felt hot, so I just shrugged it off and went back to visiting with the family. After another hour or so, I decided to check the bird again. Now I knew something was wrong. The bird looked as pink as it did the first time I checked it. We decided to forgo the turkey and just let it "cook". After the rest of the meal was eaten & the mess cleaned up, the bird still wasn't done right. We had someone come in the next day and come to find out the thermostat in the oven was cooked! even with the temp turned up to 425 it wasn't even registering 225 on the guys probe. We all laughed about it afterwords, but I was never so embarrassed in my life I never did invite them back for a holiday meal, we usually went to their place or my folks!
