You'll Be Mine

Why the shot of clean dishes? Why this lame and dull shot you may ask? Although, I do have to ask, have we met??

These clean dishes are load #2 from my FABULOUS and AWESOME brand-spankin' new Bosch dishwasher that Pup and I decided to bite the bullet on last week.


I've moaned in the past about the kitchen appliances we purchased for our kitchen remodel about 2.5 years ago.

LG you suck. You really do.

The appliance that perhaps sucked the most was the dishwasher.

Dishes would go in cleaner than when they came out. Glasses were foggy, junk was caked on, silverware was filmy. Yuck and ish.

A few months back I gave up on the thing and started washing dishes by hand, which is kinda gratifying in a weird way. Drying with a towel and making every thing sparkly.

I started storing disparate things in the dishwasher.

"Where are George's pig ears?" Pup asks. In the dishwasher!
"Where is the sink drainer?" Pup asks. In the dishwasher!
"Where is my stack of Playboys?" Pup asks. In the dishwasher!

Hey, storage is storage I say.

I leave last Friday morning for work right when the appliance guy is showing up to install my new gorgeous Borsh. I'm excited!

Pup calls me halfway to work.

"Babe, you're never going to believe why our old dishwasher didn't work."

"Why?" I ask.

"It was hooked up to cold water only."

"Pardon me?"

"Yep, cold water only. The guy was totally scratching his head."

Sigh

For over two years I've been bitching and moaning about this piece of crapski and this is the reason?

I stand by my opinion. LG you suck!

Nice appliance!

Even if we didn't have a dishwasher, you wouldn't catch my cold, dead, hands in dirty dishwater. So it's a good thing I can't reach into the sink.

There is nothing better than a dishwasher!

OMG that is so funny that it only had cold water hooked up
A dishwasher can be a beautiful thing.
Went through dishwasher hell about a year and half ago...
I have a nice new one and all is right with the world.
Now if I can only convince the other people living in this house that the dishwasher doesn't actually put the dishes inside of it by itself!

Could not live without my dishwasher, although there are a few items I preferbto hand wash. No hot eh? Duh to the hookup man.

Oh now that would have sucked!! Now wonder your dishes weren't cleaned properly. Mind you I LOVE your new dishwasher, so if that's what it took to get it, then it all turned out well :0)

Well, now that you know that the dishwasher probably works, you can sell it on Craig's List and recoup some of the $$. :-)

Don't have a dishwasher, no room for one, and many of my dishes are vintage and shouldn't go in the dishwasher anyway. The hubby and I take turns. No problem.

That's a snazzy dishwasher you got there.

And yeah, LG can suck it!

See, now I'm torn. Should I be happy about your new dishwasher. Or upset that all you had to do for the other one was turn on the hot water...I'm conflicted. I'll ponder my feelings, and return to share them.
