As I was helping to clear the table and do some of the dishes, I came across something quite odd. I was about to toss some of the silverware into the dishwasher silverware caddy thing (pardon my technical lingo) and I was taken aback.
Peggy categorizes her silverware in the caddy thing. (Do I hear a collective gasp or a slightly smug MMM-hmmm?)
Knives in one section, forks in another, followed by spoons then larger serving pieces.
It was some sort of caste system.
Is this just another area in which I am deficient? Should I be doing this? Is it too late?
This is our dishwasher, partially filled with to-be-washed dishes (the politically correct term for dirty).
It's every knife, fork, spoon or tong for himself. A hodge podge actually. Sometimes there is even a heavier contingent of silverware closest to the door because we are too lazy to open the door completely and pull out the rack. Categorize the silverware caddy thing? Nope, it's never crossed my mind.
Until now. Now my curiosity is peaked and I am turning to you, my dear bloggy friends. How do you load your dishwasher silverware caddy thing? If you do follow the caste system, why? Do you have any other dishwasher quirks?
