When dishwashers speak

July 2nd, 2008 · 147 comments

I didn’t think i’d ever see a kitchen appliance more inappropriately anthropomorphized than this fridge, but I think this dishwasher note (from an anonymous submitter in England) dials the WTF-factor up to 11.

PLEASE FEED ME  I EAT DIRTY PLATES AND SHIT OUT CLEAN ONES   THEY ARE YUMMY  LOAD ME UP WITH DISHES, OR I CRY :(

    Wow, that makes me sad. The fact that the underline after “Shit out” goes under the space… That’s kinda annoying.
    I really don’t like when people are always anthropomorphizing things… especially appliances.

    But I am Glad that the dishwasher thinks dishes are yummy.

      I just wonder why the word SHIT is red, not BROWN…. that’s how I would’ve done it if I had written the note…

      Thinking back on some of my roommates; they believed everything the TV told them, so why not the dishwasher?

      It’s just not right to obey the commands of one appliance and not listen to the requests of the others.

      Sexcuse me- but I believe that GWAR would be able to solve the case of the crying dishwasher; just as they suggest putting money under the soap as a way of hiding money from hippies, perhaps the writer of the note should hide the dirty dishes under the dishwasher soap as well? Maybe it would end the need for the dishwasher to be so anal explosive.
      If GWAR is not available for comment, THX SANDRA might be able to refer him/her to CASEY IN HUMAN RESOURCES, for the low price of $5, for parameters about what to do in case the dishwasher has a BIG JOB.

    wtf. seriously! this is the worst passive aggressive “do the dishes” note ever, because a) it’s gross (mmm I love eating what another thing has shit out!) and b) it’s not like the dishwasher is the only way to do dishes. I would like to slap the author of this note.

      I agree. Just gross. Plus, it eats and shits out of the same door?

      If I thought my dishwasher was shitting out my dishes, I’d let the dog wash them.

      If I were insane enough to write such a p/a note, I’d say “I eat the left-over food and then rinse your dishes clean.”

      I suppose you can use “”shat” according to urbandictionary.com:

      shat 127 up, 26 down
      Past tense of shit
      Shitted is not a word
      Shit can also be used as a past tense word

      But, “shit” is also correct in past tense use, so don’t correct me, okay? ;-)

      Every family has an odd tradition or twelve…this is one of ours.
      See “Fucking Delicious” in the Greatest Hits section above/right. There was a fucking delicious crazy obsession for awhile (being first to use it was quite the coup), so we had a brief moratorium on the use of the phrase; breaking the moratorium got you the Unitard (see Greatest Hits). We’re now using the phrase again, but less obsessively.

    Well, don’t think I’m trying not to wash,
    Since this is the perfect spot to wash,
    Feed me tonight.

    Let’s start with the breakfast plates of it,
    Add in the dinner plates of it,
    Help me free up your mate from it,
    Feed me tonight.

    The sink’s a basin,
    High above me,
    On the counter top so high.
    Go use that sink,
    Pre-rinse the dishes,
    So I can get off burned on pie!

    These glass dishes don’t look clean to me.
    There is no Jet-Dri inside of me.
    The rinse cycle’s taking over me.
    Feed me tonight.

      I do all the laundry, about half the dishes, all the vacuuming/dusting, clean my own bathroom, take out trash/recycle (she usually just chucks empty boxes on the floor and I have to decide whether it’s a cat toy or recycling), water plants, mow the lawn. Probably other stuff I’m not thinking of, too.
