Dishwasher safe

My Dearly Beloved puts things in the dishwasher the wrong way.

Don't worry. I rearrange them.

Oh yeah. Mr. Dean Cochrane has deemed today, March 14, Ides of March Eve, to be Naked Couch Day. Hence, after I finish up with the dishwasher trauma, I'm going to dig a little bit of this:

Yeah, I know the pic is blurry, but hey, you see how he performs with the dishwasher, what do you expect with the camera?

Beware the squirts of Shlong.

We have a similar dishwasher situation here. Must be a Mars/Venus thing.

And that photo doesn't look blurry at all. 'Course, I've been up since 1:15 with a barfy kid, so it might just be me.

Mone said...

It cant be a Mars/Venus thing, my dishwasher is looking like pic one and it doesnt bother me a bit :)

~d said...

the only time I am not re-arranging the dishwasher is when he fills it and starts it without me seeing it. HAHAHAH! that is OH so often too!
Hmm, nekkid on the couch, huh?!

Chicky Pea said...

Yep, that used to be a big complaint of mine with the ex, he couldn't load the dishwasher. Toby can back me up on this one.

Oh I can so sympathize! We don't have a dishwasher, so we stack the dishes in the sink. My SO has no clue as to how to do this, so consequently we have dish avalanches! I wonder why men don't seem to understand that there is a certain order to the way things should be stacked.

Woo hoo! Naked Couch Day!!!

I'm in.

Lets say the woman of the house did not rearrange the dishes and attempted to run it with them as the dearly beloved tenderly and lovingly placed them. Would they get clean? Try it, experiment with it.....if they do come out clean, screw rearranging them, take more time for nekkid couch days/weeks.....

Carla said...

I can't believe I didn't know about naked couch day! Still a few more hours to celebrate it. I guess I better get moving.

I'm more anal that all-ya-all!

No bowls or dishes in the top rack. Only cups, glasses, and melty-plastic pieces.

Those tend to fall off, land on the heating element at the bottom of the drum, and turn into shrinky-dinks.

Erin O'Brien said...

Shlong: When you're around, I'm aware, baby, I'm very aware.

sxk: Sorry about barfy kid. They shoulda told us about that sort of shit BEFORE we had sex!

Mone: This means, of course, that you are one day destined to live with someone who maniacally rearranges your dishwasher efforts.

~d: I know what you mean. Then all the shit that's wrong fills up with water and you open the mother up and the shitty used dishwasher water goes all over the dry shit and and ... oh hell, I'm getting back on the couch.

Chicky: No need to verify, baby, I believe you.

Dogs: The leaning tower of dishes, huh? Sounds dangerous!

Ajooja: You. Certainly. Are.

Anon: As I stated in my response to ~d, the results can get ugly, but I don't let it get me down too much. I mean, say you're walking down the street, bitching about the dishwasher and you get run over by a truck. Who wants their last act on earth to be bitchin about the dishwasher? But nekkid on the couch, um, yeah, baby.

Carla: Feel free to have an after party. We're very lenient around here.

Helen: I've seen those shrinky-dinks. Mutant plasticware, really. Then there's the ill-advised empty-margarine-container-
in-the-dishwasher move. Not pretty.

Eve said...

Bad Erin!! My husband does that too and it PISSES ME OFF!!! I mean rearrange MY dishwasher placement. If you want to rearrange, then do the dishes youyrself asswipe!! Now I just fill the sink! ;) ~giggle~

whitenoise said...

I'm a pic one type. Here, my wife has given up on me, but she's still trying with the covers-tucked-in-at-the-foot-of-the-bed thing.

I try to convince her that my feet need to be free so that I can spring into action should ninja warriors suddenly attack, but she's not buying it.

Come to think of it, maybe that's why she asks me to sleep on the pull-out....

Erin O'Brien said...

Eve: As I muse over this, I wonder if a person should MAKE SURE they are marrying the Opposite Dishwasher Loader Type--as a balance of sorts.

whitenoise: One time the Goat folded himself up in a pull-out couch. And I didn't take a picture.

Felix said...

"Those them dishwashers are too goldarned newfangled"! Gimme the sink and stoppers anyday!

Somebody tell me why couldn't Naked Couch Day be a national holiday?

Happy Ides of March, Erin!

I visit my best girl, she will cook and I will pick up the dishs rinse them and leave them in the sink. She has questioned me in a serious tone why I dont load the dishwasher. I do not like arguments but if I am put in up against the wall and I know I am right I will win.
I told her because I have loaded it before and you reloaded it, I know I can never learn to load the dishwasher to suit your needs so why waste both our time.The subject has never been mentioned again, I won hands down! When need be I will put my foot down, when I know in my heart of hearts that I am 100% correct.

Erin O'Brien said...

Felix: Tell me you do the dishes in the buff except for a pair of Playtex Living gloves. Just tell me, that, okay baby?

Jen: Which represents your efforts?

Williams: Read this. (it is short)

Renee Somebody said...

Seems a shame I don't have a couch to pose on, I'm all about joining in naked fests :(

it's 2010, and you just tweeted about a 3 year old dishwasher pic. That's hardcore.
