After being told to pack the dishwasher, and then told he didn’t do it right, husband Craig Competent (32) was curious as to what would happen if he turned on the dishwasher without his wife rearranging his efforts.
“Hayley’s tone and demeanor is always so serious when she tells me I haven’t packed the dishwasher right that you’d think the house would blow up or something”, says Craig.
Deciding that dying in a horrible explosion was worth the risk, Craig thought up a little experiment.
“I packed the dishwasher when my wife wasn’t home, put in the detergent, then turned it on and whooshka – nothing happened”, said a shocked Craig. “No explosion, no nuclear meltdown, no disruption to the cosmic vortex.”
Counting down the minutes until the dishwasher had finished its cycle, Craig was doubly shocked when the plates, cutlery and glasses were just as clean as when his wife has final stacking approval.
“It was a revelation, almost like my wife doesn’t need to backseat dishwasher stack over my shoulder each time.”
Upon hearing the news, Hayley was unimpressed to say the least. “See honey, now you don’t need to restack the dishwasher each time.”
After enduring several minutes of crossed-arms silence, Craig made a second realization that day. For all his scientific efforts, he will still be supervised for each and every household chore.
