Not a 3rd world problem BUT on Sunday I spotted some half price plates.

Have been meaning to by some new ones for a while as a lot of our crockery is chipped through kids unloading dishwasher and being fucking heavy handed with it.

Just got some out of the cupboard and 1 of them is already fucking chipped!!! angryangryangrysad. TWO DAYS?! It took?!!!!

ARGH?!! Is it just me? <weeps>

You can have my chipped plate?

I wish someone but me would empty our dishwasher.

Use the chipped plates for the DC's meals. See if they notice. grin

They know already I went mental - they eye rolled me yday when I asked them to please be careful with the new plates ��

Maybe they're too young to empty it? How old are they?

6 aged between 8 and 20 grin

Make them pay for replacements, they'll be careful then grin I'm mean though and mine have to wash, dry and put away every night.

I'm tempted but DS1 has just got a new job and is paying everyone back the money he's borrowed from pretending to go to college not working the last 6 months.

My kids think the fairies fill and empty the dishwasher. Yours is a problem I'd love to have.

I would rather empty it myself than have chipped plates. perhaps they can do loo cleaning and bin emptying instead.

Could they be getting chipped in the dishwasher? A couple of mine have gone that way unlike the fecking mugs which are decimated by DH and the cats before they even get near the dishwasher. I don't have two mugs the same in this house

I have a job to get mine to empty the dishwasher in the first place. All our plates are already chipped so they have no excuse other than idleness.

my kids load the dishwasher like fairies

OH empties it SMASH all our crockery looks like it came from a dig in York or some such

hmm

I smash something about 1 out of every 3 times I unload our dishwasher. I blame the floor, but would reluctantly concede that the crockery shouldn't be bounced off the floor on the way to the cupboard.

So I think you're lucky it isn't worse.

Yanbu OP. I'd be bloody livid.

Weathergames Tue 18-Aug-15 23:05:52

fireflygirl why is your cat using your mugs confused

I do have the problem of chipped crockery coming out of the dishwasher, though it can't be down to the kids (I wish).

I never thought about blaming the cat, or the dogs for that matter.grin There's a great idea. grin
