There is a dishwasher war going on in my house

There is something I do that gives my partner the shits big time. Over the years he’s had many interventions with me about my dishwasher stacking ways. After every chat I walk away with full intentions to improve but for some reason I just can’t.

The way I stack our dishwasher may be the end of us.

I popped this pic on Instagram the other day and it received a bucket load of comments with people saying they either stacked exactly like me, or that the pic gives them serious anxiety.


“I see nothing at all wrong with this packing of the dishwasher. My partner @Samcav22 is almost ready to leave me over it. Meeting pods are essentially a little room within a room. They are primarily used for meetings, hence the name, but can be used for all kinds of purposes. These meeting pods come in all shapes and sizes to meet different needs. Pods can be open like the office itself or closed off for privacy and confidentiality. Closed pods are more beneficial because of their natural soundproofing. Open pods still have some basic level of soundproofing, so people can still hold private conversations. meeting room pods. M x #onlyprettypicturesforinsta”

Some of my fave comments were:

@mattbaseley- This is a hate crime

@Nic_or_nati- This gives me anxiety… please fix it.

@dijoanross- Mmmmm Yes, can see a few issues.

@Chezzidenyer (Grant Denyers wife) Bahahahaha @grantdenyer, remind you of someone else’s dishwasher packing skills?

@tashkingy75- Reminds me of the dishwasher at work

@strawhanette- Nothing wrong here.

I had NO idea so many couples around Australia have the same dishwasher war as us. Most of the comments where saying how this is an issue in their relationship too. Maybe this is something we should check before hooking up, both stack a dishwasher and if you stack the same, you are destined for a long happy life together.

My theory is, just get the shit in there. If it fits then that’s good enough. This is far from the approach my partner Sam takes. He is VERY set in his dishwasher stacking ways. It’s all about the system apparently.

In my eyes, the dishes come out with the same result- CLEAN.

Argument over!
