I’m always amazed at how difficult my husband can make simple household tasks. I just went to put one more thing in the dishwasher and saw that it’s “full” but I can fit at least 1/3 ore dishes in there!
Sometimes I think he makes things difficult or pretends he can’t do them so I stop asking. 🙂

OMG. I feel your pain. Mine does the same thing. SO ANNOYING!

Yes! My husband does this all the time. He stacks things in there so that it fits maybe 1/2 the dishes it is capable of fitting. I’m always taking stuff out and rearranging it so I can fit more in there.

OMG! Yes. But not as bad as my Dad!

UGH – Yes!
I hate when he puts things in orientated in a way so that they would collect water and get dirtier – ewww!
But at least he puts it in the dishwater – my BIGGEST pet peeve is dishes in the sink!

@ Future Mrs. Martin: my hubby has ahorrible habit of putting dishes on the counter. We have atiny kitchen and veen though most of the time the dishes are rinsed….they’re all over the place! I have to ask to get them in the dishwasher and it’s not usually worth it 🙂

My FI has it down pat… my dear FMIL does not! 🙂
She was over for dinner & she insisted on doing the dishes! Awesome right? Well I walked into the kitchen & she had put all the plates in the TOP rack of the dishwasher lol. She was like, “I couldn’t get it to work so I just finished washing by hand.” She’s in her 60’s and has never had a dishwasher… she’s been the dishwasher for the last 40 years of her life.

I have the opposite problem…hubs is an engineer so he spends waaaay too much time trying to fit more in there “because he knows it will fit”, and then I end up having to rerun a few things since they were stacked so tightly they didn’t get cleaned!

@ggsb. OMG, my husband is the exact same way! He is very particular about certain things and insists that I’m “doing it wrong” haha. He freaks out every time I put ANYTHING into the garbage disposal.

@mouse – Oh My…and yes I know that feeling as well. I actually sneak and use the garbage disposal when he’s not around so I can avoid the “watchful eye”. Wait…The dude is an UT engineering grad as well right? Perhaps it’s something they learned in class??

doesn’t it count if he doesn’t even ATTEMPT to load it? i guess that makes it terrible as well, right? lol seriously the 8s (our eight year olds) and the 6 (son) load the dishwasher

My hubby is actually REALLY great about household chores, better than me actually. The only thing that drives me crazy with him and the dishwasher is he puts plastic things in there like tupperware lids, and it drives me crazy because I like to wash those by hand. As far as loading the dishwasher, he does well, he just has his way of doing it and I have mine 🙂

My FI is actually better at it than I am. When I do the dishes after dinner, he often stands right next to me and makes me hand him the dirty rinsed dishes so he can load them himself. I guess I really don’t do it right.

Actually I’M the one that’s terrible! He always manages to squeeze in a few more things.
