Too many cooks spoil the pot.

This morning I woke up early and put on a big pot of chili in my slow cooker. It should be ready for chili dogs around 3pm. Anyway my point is my mother comes over around 10 am and starts opening up the crockpot stirring sniffing etc. just really getting on my last nerve to be honest. Then proceeds to tell me it will be ready by noon. This woman has never made chili unless you call opening a can of Dennison a major feat. I swear if she opens up that crockpot one more time and stirs I am going to wack her with a wooden spoon. J/K I am really trying to keep a smile on my face about this and just bitching about to you guys helps. Anyone else have anything like this happen to them? I would love to hear your stories.
