 Do you have any pet peeves from the kitchen? I really REALLY hate it when someone blasts the water (we have really good water pressure) and it sprays water behind the faucet next to the splash guard. I also hate wet spotted sinks, so I always wipe down my sink when I've finished with dishes.

My dh does the dishes. But it drives me nuts the way he hangs the spatulas and such on the hooks over out stove. I like them in order of necessity. He always hangs the common use stuff behind other things. My other pet peave is that there is barely any counter space. Its a tiny kitchen.

Oh my, where do I start? I can't stand the cabinet dorrs left open (even just a little). I also hate water spots. I am constantly following people with my dish towel wiping the water off the counter tops. I won't let anyone else wash my dishes. I do them the way I want them done and I know they are clean. If anyone but hubby or I wash them, I am afraid they are not as clean as I get them. The cans and boxes have to be facing the front (in cupboards and fridge).

Had enough yet? LMBO

I hate when the kids do the clean up and put stuff away in any old place they please, instead of where I want it and have a designated spot for it. Ex: I couldn't find the cheese slicer for months because the DD#2 put the darn thing in the wrong drawer on the opposite side of the kitchen from where I had put it. She stuck it in an over stuffed drawer meant for rubber scrapers and measuring spoons near the mixer instead of in the drawer with the scissors, wine openers, can openers and the garlic press. That drawer had room in it where as the first one doesn't. I only found it again because I was going that drawer for something else.

I also don't like when they put the spices away and put them on the upper shelves where I can't see them. They think I'm being picky but when they have their own homes they can put things where they want and works for them.

I don't have enough counter space for rolling out dough, not enough storage cabinets for pots and pans and no pantry - I am crowded!!  

But I just met last week with a kitchen designer and a general contractor - I may get the kitchen of my dreams this Spring if the prices they give us are doable!  So, so, so excited!

Hate when others set their dirty dishes on the counter instead of rinsing and putting in sink, I don't like them to load dishwasher because all 3 are lefties so its backwards to me.. Drives me nuts when hubby steals food off the plates before I get them on the table (don't know why...it just does)Can't stand anyone taste testing while I cook.
