The 18-year-old nursery teacher is laughed at after asking where the wax was in her candle when she burned it
A nursery school teacher turned red when her sister publicly shamed her because she was upset because her newly bought candle had ‘disappeared’ – not realizing that the burning would evaporate the wax.
Charlotte Heckermann from Manchester bought her sister Ami Heckermann a scented wax melting pot and gave her a tealight to burn to allow the scent to escape into her room last weekend.
But 18-year-old Ami was shocked to discover that the wax in the tea light had ‘disappeared’ after four hours of burning and immediately texted Charlotte that she was ‘confused’ and upset.
In a hilarious text exchange, Ami asked her 21-year-old sibling “where has the wax gone in my candle?” and claimed it was “gone.”

When Charlotte explained ‘that’s what happens’ when you lit a candle, Ami was annoyed that it meant she had to buy a new one and complained her sister didn’t tell [her] this one’.
Charlotte said, “[It] evaporated. That is the “fuel” for burning the candle. ‘
Ami said, “So then [I’ve] I need to get a new candle. I did not tell you this. Cheers son crying. ‘
When Charlotte asked her why she thought she always put in a new candle, Ami admitted she thought she had “OCD” and then accused her of being a “candle expert”.

Ami claims she had never burned a candle before – and always assumed they would last after seeing relatives pull out the same ones at Christmas every year.
Charlotte shared her sister’s antics online where she received over 1,400 likes, shares and comments from amused friends.
Ami, who works as a nurse, said, “Charlotte does things like that all the time.
“The smell in my room changed. I think it was the wax that melted. It no longer smelled so strongly.

“I went there and all the laundry was gone. I immediately sent a message to my sister, “Where has my candle gone?” I was so confused.
“I thought it was funny because most of the comments are something like ‘everyone has those days’ or ‘I think this is something I would do’. That’s the funniest.
“It is the first time that I have a candle for myself. My family has had them, but I think they just blow them out. They just blow them out and pull them out again next year.
“We’ve had the same candles for about five years. The wax just stayed put. We didn’t take them out until Christmas, but even then it would only take a few hours or we’d be fake.
“I’m definitely going to get some candles. My room smelled wonderful. ‘

Charlotte, who works as a salon manager, said, “I thought it was common sense, but clearly not. It made me laugh. Anything to get the p *** out of my sister – just kidding.
“I bought her a melting pot, one of these things where you put a candle in the bottom and a melting wax in the top. I also bought some melts for her which are my favorite fragrance.
“She had no candles, so I gave her a candle. Then she texted me at 4:00 that night and said, “Are you awake? “I thought she was joking. I asked her if she was serious. She said, “Yes, I mean it, where did it go?”.
“She likes the melts I always buy, so she wanted them, but she didn’t know you should buy more candles.
“I was a little confused myself because I didn’t understand how she didn’t know. I thought it made sense for her to know, so I laughed at myself in bed.
“She’s pretty smart, so I don’t know why she didn’t realize it. She is usually very funny and comical. I tease her about it for years to come. She gets a candle for her birthday. ‘
