CALGARY, Alberta – After seeing his visiting mother-in-law load the dishwasher following a rather large Sunday afternoon family dinner, Anton McKnight, a Petrophysical Engineer with a Calgary-based consulting firm, took it upon himself to rearrange the contents of the dishwasher right beneath his MIL’s nose.

baffledSo get this, she had loaded the dishwasher with 3 large pots, a big bowl, and a few medium to large utensils, and very little else. What’s that all about? I think she did it to deliberately piss me off.

I removed the pots and bowl (which I washed in roughly 45 seconds), and added a number of plates, saucers, cups, and glasses in such a way that the dirty dish density was not maximized, but optimized.

She doesn’t pay the bills around here, I do; this gives me the¬†right to make these, and any other,¬†adjustments that are in the best interest of my monthly budget and the environment.

After seeing what she believed was a blatant display of disrespect to her, Anton’s MIL slapped him across the face in a moment of quiet rage. Embarrassed by the on goings, wife and daughter-in-law, Susan McKnight, stormed out of the room asking under her breath why she married an engineer.
