Or for straws. Or tea bags for that matter. According to my wonderful husband, the sink is not a depository for dirty items; that is what the dishwasher is for.
And still now, I deposit the dirty dishes in the sink and at some point, usually before Kyle gets home, I try to put them in the dishwasher. Sometimes I forget or don't get to it, and Kyle's non-passive way of getting back at me is that he tosses the wet nasty tea bag or straw down my shirt. Gross, I know. But he comes from a way different background of cleanliness habits, hence why he brainwashed the children into replying to the question: "Who makes the messes?" Mommy. "Who cleans it up?" We do. Hey, if they wanna clean up my messes, I'll let them. I have cleaned enough of theirs.
