The Dishwasher

To the people at my office:

How hard is it really to put your dishes in the dishwasher? I mean it's RIGHT THERE. It is less than 5 feet away from the sink. I mean they are even in the same part of the counter. Is that really too much further to walk?

I mean, I know I'm guilty of leaving my dishes in the sink too. Usually this is at home when the dishwasher is full and I'm either:

1. Unsure whether the dishes in the dishwasher are clean or dirty.
or
2. Know they're clean and too lazy to empty them.

However, here at the office, every morning the receptionist empties the clean dishes for you. There is no effort on your part except walk to the dishwasher, open the dishwasher, pull a rack and put your dish in. How hard is that? It's not hard at all.

Also: The cleaning lady, who is very sweet and I feel bad for all you early shift people who have never met her, is not your mother. It is not her job to put OUR dirty dishes in OUR dishwasher at the end of the day, but she does it anyway.
