What is it with kids thinking that their dishes will be automatically cleaned up for them? I guess its because I do clean up after them a lot, but darn, I don't like looking at the mess and everyone seems to disappear or proclaim innocence when it's time to clean up.
Last night before I went to bed, I picked ALL the dishes in the living, straightened everything, and turned off the lights. Half an hour after I went to bed, my step daughter comes in and turns on the tv. Then I hear people in the kitchen (It's 11:00 at night mind you). Well, guess what I found when I came down this morning? An empty jug of milk and a dish with a peach pit on the coffee table in the living room, and various cups and glasses on the kitchen counter next to the dishwasher. What is up with that? I usually don't, but this morning I left a nasty note saying to CLEAN UP YOUR MESS!! Is it too much to ask for people to clean up their dishes and put them in the dishwasher? Apparently it is.
