    Solution: hopefully it'll work. I got yelled at about the dishes because I cook. It's like why am I the one getting the flack for this? fuck it, i'll just start breaking dishes over her head next time she pulls that shit. I pointed out that i cleaned up last time i cooked. Attachment 9648

    The way we run our house--breakfast and lunch are on our own, so we make it, and stick the dirty dishes in the washing machine.. after lunch we run it whether there's a few or a ton. Whoever is cooking has to put them away while they're cooking, and load the dishes they cooked. The people eating put their dishes in the washer when they're done. Last person to go to bed starts the washer. And whoever eats breakfast first that morning has to put dishes away. (Or sometimes we're lazy and pull them right back out for lunch.) This normally only works when there's designated cookers for the week though.

    At least you have a dishwasher so you're not stuck at the sink forever with mushy-fingertip syndrome. If I were you and I refused to clean anyone else's stuff, I'd buy myself a color-coded set of plates and cookware and stuff and just use those colors and wash them immediately. Then everyone would know I didn't use it, so it couldn't be me doing the mess.

    Dishes are what I hate most about cooking. Maybe get some kind of arrangement hashed out before you cook for everyone again. If that won't work, cook for yourself, wash and hide your own dishes. That would probably be what you'd have to do if you lived with somebody like me because I can let them pile up pretty badly before I get motivated enough to wash them. If someone else does them before I get to them, I'm delighted and appreciative, but it's like the dishwashing fairy made a surprise appearance or something. It won't make me think, "Oh, I should wash them sooner next time."

One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I wash/clean as I cook as far as possible. I hate having a huge pile of dishes to do at the end.

    Final solution: both you & Roommate 2 drag Roommate 3 to the sink.

    One of you rubs her nose in the dishpile, while the other swats her with a rolled up newspaper, scolding, "WHAT DIDN'T U DOOOOO?"

    I feel uncomfortable if I haven't used a utensil for more than one thing before putting it in the sink. If you don't, you have never lived without a dishwasher.
