I'm turning into my mother!!

Does anyone else ever feel like this?

There's just me and my brother in our house this week, and I've been thinking to myself how nice it is to be able to do things my way. Eat when I want, get up when I want etc etc. When I was loading the dishwasher yesterday I was thinking how nice it was to be able to put things where I want them to go. Whenever my mum's at home she tells me off for putting the big plates in the wrong rack!!

Then tonight I go down to put my plate in the dishwasher and find that my brother has put a small plate where the big plates should go

I suddenly understand where my mum has been coming from all this time :lol:

    Lol you think thats harsh, the second my parents set foot out the door my brother turns into some kind of cleanliness crusader!!! the usual routine is abandoned and everything must be replaced exactly where it was found spotless, like normally i get up and have breakfast place my stuff on the top, then after tea i load the days pots into the dishwasher, when parents leave each individual item must go in the dishwasher as and when you've finished with it, noo sitting round to watch the end of your program... you must do it.....NOW! i usually just pray he stays at a mates lol

    aaargh!! that is sooo wrong!!! leaving dishes on the worktop and claiming you'll put them in the dishwasher later, yeah right. My brother used to do this too until I told him off, now he puts them in the dishwasher as soon as he's finished, but puts them in the wrong place - he can't win poor thing!

    But really, it's hardly any extra effort for you to put them in the dishwasher straight after you finish with them.

    be glad you don't live with me :yes:
