Woman sparks fierce debate after sharing partner’s method of loading dishwasher

A woman says she “can’t take this anymore” after sharing a picture of the way her partner loads the dishwasher – and others have said the image makes them “feel physically sick”

Angry Brits have demanded that loading a dishwasher should be introduced onto the national school curriculum after one woman shared her partner’s efforts – which have been compared to a “crime scene”.

Twitter user @Leebeattie posted a photo of the chaos she was faced with when she went to unload the appliance, and it’s gone viral after fiercely dividing opinions among others.

She wrote: “I married her before I ever saw her stack a dishwasher. I can’t take this anymore.”

The image shows two large pots stacked on top of a frying pan, with a bowl wedged into the corner, a water bottle place into an available gap, and two plates burying the cutlery holder.

While many people didn’t see a problem, others were turned to instant anger, with one writing: “That’s not so much stacking as it is throwing the dishes at the dishwasher from across the room!”

A second wrote: “This makes me feel physically sick”, and a third added: “That’s a crime scene!”

Some sympathised with Lee’s frustration, as one replied: “Dishwasher loading – in every marriage there’s one person who can, and one person who can’t, and if you’re not sure which you are, then you can’t.”

And a second commented: “Every home needs a dishwasher monitor. I am ours. God knows that they’d do without me.”

There were some constructive suggestions, including: “Looks to me as though space is limited, which leads to imperfect stacking. I would suggest adopting a ‘pans for the sink – plates for the dishwasher’ policy to mitigate this.”

And some people replied to say they couldn’t see an issue at all, with one arguing: “I see nothing wrong with this loading technique. All surfaces have access to water, the big pots that no-one want to wash are covered, and the colours are evenly distributed.”
