In my house we share most of the regular chores very equitably. There are some that I generally take care of and some that are mainly my husbands forte. I am willing to cut the grass but Mr. lawn nazi couldn't handle my way of doing it. I'm ok with that. One of the jobs that is more in my column is loading the dishwasher.
Actually it's more that I am a nutjob about the proper way to load the dishwasher. My way is logical and efficient and totally sensible. Apparently I am the only person who understands this. To me the loading should be done with an eye toward the unloading portion of the job, i.e.; unloading-plates and bowls straight up, silverware directly in front, coffee cups on the left side, water glasses on the right side, like items grouped together. Simple, fill accordingly. This saves space, costs you less in energy usage, makes the job quicker and easier. My hubby's way of loading is: oh, there's a spot, let me stick it here. All willy nilly, I can't deal. As soon as he loads dishes in there I rearrange.
Maybe my husband will read this post. My fingers are crossed.
He claims I'm anal about it, I say I have a charming quirk. I have had this system for all of our years together. Do I need to draw a diagram for god's sake?
