15 People Who Are Failing Miserably at Loading Dishwashers


What is wrong with people? I mean, seriously?

Is it really that difficult to load a damn dishwasher properly? Apparently, the answer to that question is a resounding “YES” because these photos prove it is a very widespread phenomenon.

You know what? These are all major FAILS.

1. No knives in the dishwasher!

When loading the dishwasher do you put knife blades down or up?? I went to unload the dishwasher and found these! ? . . . #thisdoesntseemsafe #dishwasherproblems #iappreciatethehelp #gratefulheart❤️

How to load a dishdrawer, singapore style…!! But I shan't bitch as I'm happy to have the lovely folk from my fave city state back following the sharp drop off in bookings once I put shower restrictions in place – 15 mins maximum per person instead of the 1 – 2 hours that some of them were taking to "wash their hair" usually in the middle of the night… #dishdrawer #fisherandpaykel #integratedappliances #airbnbsuperhost #dishwasherproblems #firstworldproblems

Ha! I so clearly remember an argument I had with my college roommate over how to load the dishwasher… It was my first glimpse into the fact that not everyone loaded the dishwasher the same way (seriously? Not everyone loads back to front and in an organized fashion?! this *rocked* my world) I think it was also my first step toward becoming slightly less Type A. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still fairly Type A, maybe like a Type A-, but significantly less so. I’ve learned to let go of some the things that just don’t matter, like loading the dishwasher from back to front… the world won’t end if it’s not totally full and 100% maximized in space…!! ????? #thanksmom #idiosyncrasies #typeA #dishwasherproblems #valentines #valentinesday #february14 #rpsvalentines
