Would someone P L E A S E tell me why men can be so inept when it comes to the simple task of loading the dishwasher??? This is not rocket science people. It’s a dishwasher. You place the dishes on the racks in an ORDERLY fashion, minimizing the gaps, grouping like items together. For those men out there reading this….KEEP THE SAME SHAPES TOGETHER.
Now, I have learned my lesson, over the years, to not yell or scold my husband because it simply does not work. I must be nice and sweet, and simply suggest that perhaps, were he to try a different approach as to where he places the glasses, the end results would be more appealing. Although, I must admit that I lost my cool the other night. I may have yelled and told him to get away from the dishwasher and go back to clearing the table. It is possible that I exclaimed something about the fact that he knew better than to think he could rinse and load the dishes properly. It is also possible that my reaction caused a similar reaction from him in the dirty look I received and any expletives that may have been mumbled in my direction. It is possible.
So, I should not have been surprised today when I received a text message, having the following cartoon attached to it.
His words to me were….. “I believe I’ve successfully reached step five.” Followed by a smiley face.
Perhaps I should take this as a nod to him being aware of his ineptitude. Maybe I should consider that his plan all along was to screw this up from the beginning. Do I dare to think that he would seriously want ME to have all the responsibility of loading the dishwasher? Hmmm????
Maybe I should heed the words my Mother told me….. “Pick your battles.“
Yes, maybe I should save the big guns for the laundry.
