Never have a heated argument around a heated pan
Man seeking roommate who won't burn him -- literally.

Don't be surprised if you come across that kind of ad on Craigslist after what this Tenderloin man has been through. 

Police say that a 47-year-old man is in the hospital today with serious burns on his face and wrists after his roommate tossed hot cooking oil at him during an early-morning fracas.

The attack happened at about 2:45 a.m. on Tuesday when the two housemates began arguing inside their apartment, which is located on the 300 block of Jones street. According to police, the suspect, a 48-year-old man, got a little overheated and flung a pan of hot cooking oil in his roommate's face.

The victim ran to the Tenderloin police station to report the incident. Police arrested the roommate on suspicion of aggravated assault.

Needless to say, the two roommates are like oil and water -- they just don't mix.
