In my household, walking over to the sink and washing your plate was just part of getting up to leave the table. This carried over into adulthood and I still usually wash things as soon as I’m done using them.
My wife absolutely refuses to do the dishes and she merely dislikes vacuuming. So if I vacuum I’ll have to do the dishes too. If I do the dishes, there’s a 50/50 shot she’ll vacuum if she’s in the mood for it.
@kjady@Kyeh well… I was getting a little too ashamed and cleaned Sunday then after multiple attempts got it charged via spray bottle deterrent. Than ran it successfully. So. Good plan to sort of help despite it’s issues.
They proceeded to wake it up multiple times while I was trying to sleep before this occured to me. I’m sure it can be duplicated.
He might stay on while steering it since it’s in a low power mode/hard to say. Not sure I can film while doing it.
And I’ve only uploaded the one video with the kittens forgot what account I even used to do that. Lol.
Well, not too long ago it would have been a toss-up, but since getting a cordless Shark vacuum here several months ago, I have to say, vacuuming is by far less of a pain than the dishes!
You’re welcome for the plug, Meh.
Forget about me vacuuming, gimping around on one crunch for the last 30 years makes that someone else’s chore!
BUT… With all this talk about people HATING to do the dishes I’m more interested to know WHY people aren’t using an automatic dishwasher?
@Lynnerizer I’ve never lived anywhere with a dishwasher, or known anyone with one. Well, as a kid I had a couple of friends with dishwashers in their house, but in both cases it was broken and just used as a dish storage cabinet.
Yeah, I guess it was pretty presumptuous for me to think most people have a dishwasher. I know when my dad’s wife moved into our house she refused to use the dishwasher, but that was just her preference and she was weird back then anyways!
@Lynnerizer Hmm… well if you want to pay the rent for me somewhere that has a dishwasher I’d LOVE to move!!! The few times I have had one has been wonderful! Actually I saw they sell counter top small ones you hook up to the sink but I have so little counterspace in this pit I am not sure where I could even put it (not to mention the assholes who own this place would likely write up a lease violation for owning it).
@Lynnerizer Late to the conversation here (last month was killer for a lot of reasons).
Early in our marriage, we went to my in-laws for Thanksgiving. My mom came with us (my dad had passed away). My mom was one of those people that you try really hard not to correct. She didn’t take it well, you know?
So, after the meal, we started cleanup. Mom takes charge in the kitchen. I see her rinsing the dishes off. Then she declares “They’re ready!”
And I said, “For what?”
Mom: To put in the dishwasher.
Me: Mom, they don’t have a dishwasher.
His family was fairly well off, they’d had the house built back in the fifties. Never had a dishwasher. Six kids, two adults. And no dishwasher.
Vacuum as I don’t have a dishwasher - machine or human. Dishes take longer, both sides of the sink get full so you can’t easily use the sink, and then the drying rack becomes a balancing act. Sure I could do them sooner but I don’t as I hate doing them.
@macromeh One year, my then-husband asked what I wanted for my birthday. I said “A maid.” He laughed, but I was serious. I worked 6 days a week and didn’t want to spend my one day off cleaning. We used that cleaning service for years, probably until I moved out. Best gift ever, even better than the KitchenAid stand mixer and Cuisinart food processor I’d asked for in the past.
@Butwhole Nope, no party tricks for me. You see, around our house “poopy head, poopy pants” and just about anything else “poopy” are terms endearment. So I wasn’t poking fun at you, I was truly excited about your username. My apologies if you were offended.
@lisaviolet That doesn’t sound very fair. We’d always done it the opposite way, if I cooked then you clean or vise versa. Guess it all works out because these days he does everything!
Cheers to good guys!
