Dishes

You guys, I witnessed my husfriend's dishwashing method this weekend and it's so weird. See, usually doing the dishes is my job because I'm a woman. On this rare occasion that I did not do the dishes immediately, they piled up in the sink and I asked him to pretty please do them because mama's tired.

And he did. And I love him for that.

But y'all, it was so weird.

See, when I do dishes, I do a pre-rinse pre-game to get all the chunks off, then I tetris them into the dishwasher immediately and efficiently. Badabing, badaboom. Not him. Nope. He pre-games every dish and then stacks it according to type. On the counter. Even the kids silverware was separate from the adult silverware. Only when each dish is rinsed and organized does he gather his game plan for proper loading. I don't. I can't. There's so much strategy and thought....for dishes.

The counter was clear before he started. 
In his defense, it was a lot of dishes.
It was only a days worth.
I have so many roommates.

I mean, I sorta get the strategy. You can see what you have and load the dishwasher as efficiently as possible, but I think you lose points for getting the counter all wet and cluttered and having to touch each dish twice. You don't get all the tetris tiles at once, you get 'em one at a time, amiright?

Am I wrong? How do YOU do the dishes?

  1. I just rinse then straight to the dishwasher. My husband is super picky about rinsing off the dishes before he puts them in the dishwasher.

  3. You wouldn't like how we do dishes because I HATE how we do them.... by hand (insert shocked face). Yep, people still do it the old fashion way. BUT if I had a dishwasher I would totally do them your way. His way is giving me an OCD tick.

  4. I have been doing dishes by hand for the past 17 years. We just moved in to our new house in February and it has a dishwasher (that sealed the deal for me!) I have absolutely no idea what the eff I am doing. I have played tetris. I felt like I was pretty good at that game, but my dishwasher loading skills are horrid. There are times my husband will open the door to unload the dishwasher and he just shakes his head. lol Maybe my skills will get better......
