fork in the road

Forks and spoons should be loaded into the dishwasher handle-down. They get cleaned much more effectively with the dirty part up and sticking out of the little basket thingy.

Surely, I'm not the only person out there who feels this way.

i agree, but i did have a roommate with an irrational fear of getting injured by them when they were pointing upwards.

Jennifer likes to put the steak knives pointy side up so I almost kill myself taking them out. You know what helps getting utensils clean when you wash them: Not having a hunk of shit dishwasher like ours.

Silverware goes functional side down. id rather have someone pick it up by the handle than the part i eat with.

Um, that's why you wash your hands before you empty the clean dishes out of the dishwasher.

Look, just because you refuse things to do things the proper/easy way, doesn't mean everyone else is wrong. She also refuses to empty her pockets before I do laundry as if I'm supposed to just go through all of her pants instead of her doing it when she takes them off.

I could sit there and watch someone scrub their hands with ethyl alcohol and steel wool for 2 hours, and I still wouldn't want them touching the business end of my silverware.

Actually, I wouldn't want someone who's been scrubbing their hands with steel wool for 2 hours touching anything of mine for that matter.

And I'm confused? Who's doing the dishes the wrong way here? :)
