The 5 Stages of Dishwasher Grief

1) Denial: Sure, I'll be able to fit all the dishes in there.
2) Anger: Frikk!! There's no way I'm going to be able to fit all the dishes in there.
3) Bargaining: Okay, maybe if I move this bowl to the bottom rack and tilt this lid that way...
4) Depression: Oh,man.....this totally sucks. There is no physical way to fit everything in there. Now I'm going to have these leftover dishes here in the morning. Boooo.
5) Acceptance: Oh well, okay. Looks like I'm going to have to leave this pot and these cups out tonight and just put them in tomorrow after I put away the clean dishes.

no sympathy from me. you have a sink, don't you? and two hands? and a counter?

handwashing is so much faster. and the soap bubbles are fun.
