We’ve never had a dishwasher since we’ve always lived in old buildings (currently a 16th c. structure in Italy), so thankfully nothing to argue about there!

My fiance is TERRIBLE at loading the dishwasher! It doesn’t help that I’m a Tetris-like champion at fitting things in there. I won’t even let him do it anymore 🙂

Weirdly, he can only fit 6 things in the dishwasher but will pack the washer and dryer like he’s stuffing an overfilled suitcase…

I have to be soo careful about rearranging the dishwasher–he gets super offended if he catches me doing it!  He takes it personally like I’m correctly him.  But it’s not like I do it because he loaded it wrong.  I’m just trying to make things fit, and I do it to myself all the time, since realistically, I am the one who loads the dishwasher 90% of the time!

Yup my husband has this problem.  He’s gotten better though. It’s all a working progress.


Oh, and I have a few hard anodized (sp?) pots and when we first moved in. I took him aside and brought the pots to him and pointed out that these can not be place in the dishwasher because it ruins the pots. Just wanted to give him the heads up.

I would remind him a few times during the first 6 months.

Well, a few months later, I see them in the dishwasher.  He said he forgot.  *sigh* 


I saw this book in the card store about things guys should know.  I thought it was a funny book but didn’t think my husband would need it.  Hmmm,  maybe he does need it.  LOL

@ Nexus… LOL  He under loads the dishwasher but for the washing machine he stuffs it full.  LOL

Here’s a funny joke for you ladies. I can’t remember who the comedian was but this is so true of my husband:

Lets say someone says to dh…be sure to load the dishwasher, he thinks “oh geez, i gotta ply my wife (the dishwasher) with alcohol?”


my dh doesn’t know how to load a dishwasher OR laundry machine. when  we’re out of dishes  in the cupboards, he doesn’t think to even look in the dishwasher. he just grabs some paper plates.
