No word of a lie here is our exchange tonight-
"OP, this dishwasher is dirty"
"Yes, MIL, because there are dirty dishes in it"
"Well aren't you meant to clean them first before putting them in?"
"No, that would defeat the purpose of a dishwasher wouldn't it?"
"Well that doesn't sound right to me. how do you keep the dishwasher clean then?"
"When the dishes get cleaned the inside also becomes clean".
"So it sits there dirty the rest of the time? What's the point of having a clean kitchen when you have dirty things inside a dishwasher?"
"MIL, it's a DISHWASHER. Nobody is looking inside."
"No but it will smell and attract cockroaches"
"MIL I don't think you understand. It's not the same scraps sitting there. It's kind of like a bin. It gets emptied out..."
"No OP. This is no good at all. I'd rather just wash up."
"Well I'm using the dishwasher."
I'm banging my head in frustration and MIL has gone to bed to sulk.
(They NEVER used the dishwasher in the four years they lived here)

I guess I'm one of those people, my oven is very far down the list of things I care about!

I have many lovely things my MIL has said over the years, but a couple recent ones come to mind. She insisted on coming to stay when I was in the thick of evening sickness, literally throwing up every night around dinner time. One evening I came up from talking down the toilet to lay on the couch, she comes over and asks, ' Are you cooking dinner tonight?' Wtf. Just recently she told me I couldn't have a nice kitchen, because then I would have to cook. I quickly retorted with , 'I do cook'. DH followed with ' She does cook'. Absolute silence followed for once. The other thing I can't stand is her need to share everything about us and what we are doing with people, I am a very private person and cannot stand it. I have only recently got DH to stop sharing so much info with her.
