I hate vacuuming and dishes the most. When I was a kid, vacuuming was y household chore, my sister got to dust...way easier...I'm bitter. Washing dishes by hand inevitably ends in me being soaking wet. I don't know how. I'm just inept like that.
My husband is cool. I say it all the time, he rocks. He's the kinda guy who if he thinks I need the help, will just pick up a rag and dust, or run the vacuum. I went grocery shopping last weekend and came home to 2 loads of laundry washed, dried and folded...he's awesome!
EXCEPT when he does the dishes. THE FRICKIN DISHES!
Here's the thing. I don't have to wash things by hand because we have a fantabulous Whirlpool dishwasher. It does a great job, its 2 years old, love it. I would make out with it if it were appropriate and not completely weird. But this dishwasher has this new fangled thing. Its like an unnecessary grate that flips up and down over the utensil section.
See the illustrations....love the illustrations....
Right...So I don't use said grate. It irritates me.
Here's why. (Cuz I just KNOW that understanding my irritation will MAKE YOUR DAY!)
I do a million things every day. I dislike doing dishes-even with a dish washer. If this grate is flipped up, I can grab an entire section of utensils at one time with my big mit. I can also randomly toss utensils down into the sections without having to pay attention to how they are going in. IF the grate is down you have to gingerly pluck each and every utensil out individually....HOLY TIME WASTER! Not to mention watching me try to fit things down into those slots is like watching a 6 mo old try to fit a square block into a round hole. *Hears Carlos Mencia saying Dee-Dee-Dee*
But I FAIL to see why the silverware needs to be separated! Do they fight once the water goes on? Do they hold mashed potato wrestling for the spoons (they're curvy-lets assume they're women). Do the steak knives and the butter knives have turf wars? WHYYYYYYYYY ...do they require imdividual slots?!?
So THIS is my way:
