Don't you hate it...

... when you are doing the dishes* and you are leaning against the counter with your hips, because you need a little extra leverage to scrub a pan, and the force of the water and the force of the scrubbing splashes all over you and pools up in that area on the counter between the stainless steel sink and your hips and you don't notice it soaking into the front of your jeans when the door bell rings, so you answer the door and looks like you wet your pants.








*4 out of 5 women recommend husbands that do dishes.

This does not happen to me, cause I do the dishes naked.

I was going to comment and now I am just laughing at the Lawnwhisperer, becuase I have a feeling he does not do the dishes like when he goes to your moms and leaves the pork roll pan dirty for her!

Toady Joe said...

Yes, I do. Same thing happened to me last night, only instead of doing the dishes (my kids are old enough to make THEM do the dishes, and I have a dishwasher to make sure they're really clean) it happened while I was carrying bags of (semi-melted) ice to the freezer in the basement. It was coooooold water!

LOL lawnwhisperer!!

As a woman who just loves a man who does dishes - I would defend my hubbies honor and say it was MY wet hands and it was all my fault to whoever was at the door.

Sandy said...

Are you sure that only 4 out of 5 women recommend men washing the dishes?!?

Cause I really thought that the men would totally own that vote!

Teri said...

this happens to me quite frequently as well, luckily no one's knocking on the door.

I agree with tbg regarding LW, I do not believe he does the dishes either. and naked, year right.

Thanks for the tip, LW!

I think it really depends on who is at the door. If it's just a person selling something you can make it like you are so smitten by their products that you peed yourself. (Jumping up and down smiling like an idiot helps make it look authentic.)
If it's the Jehovah's Witnesses at the door, you just grab hold of that wet spot for a sec, and then reach in to shake their hand. It's like an anti solicitation alarm for your door. It works, trust me. You should do dishes every day.

Dishes? In the sink?? Isn't that what the square appliance under the counter is for?

Hmmmmm...

Effie said...

that happens all too often...but it looks more like "wet pants" with a guy than a girl--it's all in placement...teehee!

TMI, Lawnwhisperer! T.M.I.

I hate anything that starts with "when you are doing the dishes..."

Everything except this blog entry

Andrea said...

This is exactly why I risk dorkiness by usually wearing an apron when I wash dishes, because that always happens to me (not the answering the door part, necessarily, but the splashing, yeah.)

*drags Hubby to the computer screen* "See Honey! GUYS CAN do dishes without being permanently and horribly disfigured from the experience! I TOLD YOU SO!"

Mich said...

Sorry, what was the question? I got stuck on the part where you said you were washing dishes. I thought men were genetically unable to complete that task.

"No man was ever shot by a woman while he was doing dishes."

mary said...

YES! I usually walk away from washing dishes splattered with water and with a drenched hip region.

Lynn said...

Lawnwhisperer is not the only one who does the dishes naked. Our living room and bedroom look right into our rear neighbor's kitchen. She does not have curtains in there. We call her Naked Dishwashing Lady (not to her face, of course).

Kami said...

Doing dishes naked is not a safe choice. What if a knife went flying? Just sayin'.

mike said...

Happens to me every time I do the dishes by hand! Once in 1982, I think August. Again 1993, September I think, and 2004 some time around Thanksgiving. I prefer to let the garbage disposal clean the dishes(a.k.a. the dishwasher...)
