to hide cereal bowl from DH?

We recently moved house and due to "someone's" oversight, managed to only transport two cereal bowls with us. DH eats his cereal before work and puts bowl in dishwasher. Due to the fact that we don't need to put dishwasher on everyday, I eat my cereal and then wash up my bowl and put back in the cupboard. Inevitably he then takes the fresh one from the cupboard the next day and puts this bowl into dishwasher, leaving me bowl-less! Have now got to the point where I am seriously thinking of hiding the clean bowl and saving it for myself tomorrow. This pettiness maybe a result of the heat and pregnancy, or maybe just tired of his belief in the existence of a bowl fairy.

Why don't you buy a new bowl from poundland/Tesco/charity shop?

or you could just buy more bowls - a lot less hassle in the long run...

FGS why have you not just bought new ones?!?

YABU, buy some more bowls, no need to be childish

put your used and cleaned bowl in the dishwasher so he will need to get out his old bowl and wash it

what MatNanPlus said grin - it's what I do with all the glasses in this house when the kids take a big glass, have one mouthful of water, then put the glass in the dishwasher. Ten times a day. Each child angry

Or, you could just divorce the bastard grin that way you'd have one bowl for you and one spare, assuming he doesn't demand half the bowls in the divorce settlement.

Stop buying cereal and make him eat toast instead.

nametaken doesn't that just get so annoying, my MIL is the opposite, you finish your drink and leave the glass in the fridge for later and she takes it out of the fridge, washes it and puts it away.

Yeah new bowls would be the obvious answer. Although I think making him eat toast would also be a good idea, especially as he insists that he only likes Warburton's granary ( no other kind at all hmm and has stocked up the whole house with this!

Ask your husband to wash his cereal bowl after use.

MamaL - his answer: "but we have a dishwasher."

MamaLazarou Tue 30-Jun-09 13:42:55

Have you explained about how the dishwasher doesn't go on every day, though? I'm sure if he understood the situation more clearly he would be considerate enough to take a few minutes to wash one bowl.

Eat together and wash up together. Marital harmony all round grin

break both bowls and make him eat his cereal out of a mug.
