Over teaspoon usage?

I'm happy to be told that I'm being overly precious, but my husband had just taken a teaspoon out of the drawer, inserted the handle into his ear for a scratch and then used the spoon to remove the teabag from my tea.

That's disgusting isn't it?

Couldve been worse.
He could have stirred it with the ear wax end grin

Well, at least he used different ends for different tasks!

But, yes, it is a bit yuck.

I have the opposite issue - if I microwave a pot of soup, I will use 5 spoons blush it drives DP mad. I can see why but - 🤷‍♀️

My OH is the teaspoon culprit in our home. He will use a new one every single time he makes a new cup of tea which can amount to almost 10 a day. He refuses to use the already washed spoons. It drives me crazy coming home to a sink full of spoons or every teaspoon in the drainer. I could scream!!!

My dad used to scratch his back with the fish slice, then put it back. He was old and crusty at the time 😳 yanbu

How big are your husband’s ear canals that he can fit a teaspoon handle in there to fish for earwax?

My dad used to poke the car key in his ear for a scratch. Had forgotten about that til now!

Looking at the positives, at least he is multitasking. And you got a cup of tea. But yes. Not ideal, it must be said. They probably don't do that in the Ritz.

I once used a fork to poke out an ingrown toenail.
Sorry not sorry. Was a long time ago in self catering in spain and it worked.
I think i just washed it and put it back in the drawer.
I'm disgusting I know blush

Thats actually disgusting. I thought this thread was going to be about using a teaspoon over and over throughout the day for cuppas actually for some reason hmm As I had a friend tell me how gross I was not changing the spoon for each cup, a few days back.
