  • suck it up lol you'll make it.:) does suck tho. i liked the response about assigning one fork, spoon and knife to each person"handle this its all ya get" lol.
    I have a theory that the dishes-like rabbits_ reproduce while I sleep. I can go to bed with one bowl, 2 forks and a cup in the sink and the morning comes and I have 12 forks, 20 spoons, 2 bowls, `2 plates and pots and pans...creepy lil sexed up dishes. lol

  • I would never live with out one again. I physically can not stand at a sink to hand wash anyway. Do you have a galley kitchen in your apartment? If you have a regular kitchen you can get a portable one that you just hook up to the sink. That is what I have and I love it! Plus the top of it gives us more counter space.

  • I could if I had no choice but I really love my dishwasher so I would try really really hard to find a place that had one if I had to rent. I have done my fair share of dishes and hanging clothes on the line so I pretty much refuse to do either.

  • Yuck sorry to hear that! I when we moved into this house we had to live in the in-law apartment downstairs while we fixed up the main house. No dishwasher! I remember hating the silverware the most. I felt like assigning everyone one fork and one spoon and saying that's all you get!!! Haha!

  • I do. I have hand washed dishes for two years now and I have hated every minute of it, but the kitchen where we are is simply too small to have one in there.
