You are not saving energy by leaving the fucking salmon out on the counter top so that it "can cool down" before it goes into the refrigerator. It's possibly still in the 90s out right now; the fridge will inevitably have to work a little harder than normal, a slab of warm salmon meat in there or no.
It's sea food. YOU DON'T LEAVE IT OUT. PERIOD.
How can you know so much and yet be so fucking ILLOGICAL? You don't want the fridge to work as hard, yet we have to yell at you to unpack your beer from the cardboard box so that the weaker refrigerator doesn't have to not only work harder, but have a complete meltdown that's already happened twice because of your idiocy? In which universe does that make sense?
P.S. The only reason you're not fired from barbecuing is that Mom doesn't want to do absolutely EVERYTHING, including the shit you're completely capable of but choose not to apply yourself to.
