To feel shame (looked up, tongue mid-lick..
Shriekingbanshee · 28/10/2018 16:17
...to see opposite neighbour looking out her kitchen window at me, licking plates before loading dishwasher)
I am not sure whether to be horrified at being caught out red-handed as it were, mid-lick, cleaning my dish before loading it in d'washer or just, oh well, I love my food and none will go to waste whilst I'm around.
Its gross though isn't it...oh... am swinging here...I just can't get enough of the taste and I need to portion control, so don't want to leave anything!

Thanks Daphne that makes sense now, and the bread mopping is an oft used strategy in our home! Have been trying to keep the wheat consumption down for us all, so quite relevant actually.
Ha! Wither I think we both actually withered a bit, and afterwards I recalled her family also being there! I have since had chatty over the fence exchanges, happily, and nobody has mentioned, to save faces all round I think. My neighbours are lovely

￼ your post made me proper lol.
Not judging here and if I was your neighbour I would have laughed. It might be a tad inappropriate if it was the entire families plates after lunch as some kind of money saving pre-wash.

Low carb high fat so no bread to mop plate.

That's awesome Torn !
What's LCHF Daphe as I'm not understanding what you're saying here?
DaphneDiligaf · 01/11/2018 08:20
As has been proven on another thread some people just do not understand LCHF. There's a reason some if us don't have bread to mop our plates with.

It's no dream, it's obscene, licking them clean.
From mainly gravy to Heinz baked bean.
You can't deny her cleaning power
When faced with last night's sweet and sour
Her tongue's become a running joke
Lapping up a runny yoke
But it must be said, her bit of posh
Is licking up her Rogan Josh

....and god do I hope you're not my neighbour!!

It's actually a very energy-efficient approach to the dishwasher in my view since one does need to remove the food residue in order to get a good result from the dishwasher and doing that with water wastes resources...and food
so crack on
though I don't really fancy doing it myself

silent honestly, I wouldn't be at all bothered if I saw someone else doing it, and because of your reaction, I now feel like sticking my fingers up
SilentIsla · 30/10/2018 20:27
I never want to witness plate licking. Admit it, OP - you are humiliated.
Shriekingbanshee · 30/10/2018 19:49
There's no emoji
if there was it would have got worn out on this thread

" not envy"
I don't get why people keep bothering to use this smiley when it means something else, so they have to explain that. Just use words like a grown up.
Shriekingbanshee · 30/10/2018 19:39
Omg!!?? I am a pariah
icelollycraving · 30/10/2018 19:37
Licking plates is really grim. I can understand licking your finger if it got a bit of sauce on, I have never seen or known an actual plate licker. not envy.

re: nose picking and eating- WHY?? why do they EAT it afterward???
Shriekingbanshee · 30/10/2018 18:54
Scratch ass, smell fingers Romany !!!
That's something I have seen some men exs doing!
Can you imagine if that's what I was doing when our eyes locked!!?
RomanyRoots · 30/10/2018 18:46
Not in company but not a problem if on your own.
I've seen several women sitting at traffic lights picking their noses and eating it, there are some gross women about.
This seems like nothing compared to some things you see.
That's a challenge for you OP, to put your own habit into perspective, either when you are at work or out and about, people watch, it's amazing what some mingers do.
Scratch ass, smell fingers, there's a few of these, women are no better than men when it comes to mingyness

Been loving this thread. This week there have been some good ones- Crazy "Am I racist?" Guinea Pig Lady and the FannyGallops (what weird daft things did your partner not understand) to name but two.
Please someone put this one in classics? Hope it doesn't get deleted like so many good thread so.

Race to the bottom...what? These are all isolated incident,'s nobody could possibly be racing to the bottom.
Do tell what you actually said to your dh that he wouldn't EVER dare do it again. Sounds like going back to school! Blimey, did you actually tell him off like some school boy!?
Tighnabruaich · 30/10/2018 11:08
We were having dinner and I I looked across the table at husband and saw him licking his knife! I won't repeat what was said/done, but he's never EVER done it again.
SilentIsla · 30/10/2018 10:46
Dear god, some people are making disgusting comparisons. 🤢
