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!

I've actually found this OP relatively normal compared to some on here .
GreatDuckCookery6211 · 28/10/2018 17:03
Just yours or everyone else's?
You seem weirdly proud of this OP
Shriekingbanshee · 28/10/2018 17:03
Camb should have waved with a flourish and smiled broadly
... perhaps extended polite invite for neighbours to join me
ElspethFlashman · 28/10/2018 17:04
Nope nope nope nope......
Bluntness100 · 28/10/2018 17:05
Honestly I really don't think you should teach your kids to lick their plates op. It isn't funny and they should be taught decent table manners.
Shriekingbanshee · 28/10/2018 17:06
Elspeth no not proud
Very carried along here with all the hilarious comments though
ElspethFlashman · 28/10/2018 17:06
And here's me constantly teaching my kids not to eat like dogs..... I feel a right fool now!
cooblanket · 28/10/2018 17:07
Not her plates, not her business I find it revolting when DH does it with his plate at the table but you charge on, she won't look again I bet!
Iaimtomisbehave1 · 28/10/2018 17:07
Your plate or every plate?
ElspethFlashman · 28/10/2018 17:09
I vividly remember doing it once when I was about 8, when my cousins were visiting and one of them went "UUURRRRRGGHH!"
I honestly hadn't realised it was bad form before then. I still remember the embarrassment when it dawned on me he thought I was a savage. But on reflection I am glad, otherwise I'd have carried on!
SpoonBlender · 28/10/2018 17:10
I'm totally bemused by all these "gross" comments - it's food! On the plate that the food has been eaten off! At worst, by family who you spend all your time with and swap fluids with all the time, for good or bad! Honestly.
I wonder if all these people would refuse to eat from a cake mixing bowl too?
AriadneCrete · 28/10/2018 17:10
That’s absolutely vile OP. Do you do it with just your plate or everyone else’s too?
Shriekingbanshee · 28/10/2018 17:13
I had been on MN, and made myself a smallish portion of smoke back bacon, button mushrooms, slices of juicy ripe tomatoes, and a perfectly cooked crispy edged fried eggs (in the juices of the other ingredients). I added some HP (other brands are frankly not available).
I sat, alone this pm, and thoroughly enjoyed my serving all to myself, all the flavours melded together. As the last bit of bacon and runny egg went down I stood up, momentarily abandoned MN and carries my plate through to the kitchen where I pulled open the d/washer drawer and couldn't resist thoroughly finishing every last drop, when I noticed the neighbour, actually the DM neighbour also had 3 other DC in the kitchen which I think in my trauma I had previously blanked out!
FilledSoda · 28/10/2018 17:14
You do seem quite pleased with yourself though, please don't let the children do this, it would be noticed by school etc
Aprilsinparis · 28/10/2018 17:14
Christ OP, that made me LOL
Shriekingbanshee · 28/10/2018 17:18
I subsequently had to put something out back door and one of her DC was looking still and waved...I nervously waved back and withdrew.
The shame, oh the shame...
Costacoffeeplease · 28/10/2018 17:19
At the very least you could have used a slice of bread to mop up the last bits, but to lick the plate? and yes, you do seem astonishingly proud
Takes all sorts
Eliza9917 · 28/10/2018 17:20
That's not that bad then op, your first post made it sound like you were licking the whole family's plates.
AriadneCrete · 28/10/2018 17:20
You keep mentioning “the shame” but I don’t actually think you are ashamed. You seem very proud of yourself.
It’s one thing to do it in your own home, but I hope you don’t do it in public. If I was in a restaurant and I saw someone doing that it would make me feel a bit urgh.
HemanOrSheRa · 28/10/2018 17:21
You disgust me OP. Where is the bread and butter?! . There is your error.
Shriekingbanshee · 28/10/2018 17:28
I am trying to keep bread (and wheat generally) of my menu as much as poss, but I absolutely love the bread and butter mopping, and we indulge unashamedly in that.
I am finding everyone's comments so hilarious and genuinely laugh-out-loud funny that i am forgetting my shame till I run into neighbour
I am very naught and I must be punished. I don't do this at a table/in front of others.
I was alone, just shocked at what neighbour saw and how that looks, and yes,
Actually worried that neighbour might also be looking through virtual MN window!
Shriekingbanshee · 28/10/2018 17:32
the whole families plates
Don't other DMs clear their DCs plates?...ever?
Lol'd at the pp who found her boss sneaking yoghurt out of the bin!
HemanOrSheRa · 28/10/2018 17:32
Hehe! This thread is so funny. Don't people stand out in the kitchen, dunking leftover roasties in gravy, staring out the window in a moment of peace? Actually, I KNOW they do because I've read it on Christmas Day threads .
TornFromTheInside · 28/10/2018 17:34
She told me she liked lickin' clean
the plates by the washing machine
I assumed they were mucky
and her licking was yucky
'til she said she just liked adding gleam!
She said they were already washed
I near fainted and screamed 'oh my gosh'
She said 'it's a winner...
I do it 'fore dinner'
And my tongue just adds extra splosh!
Her tongue was not that of Fairy
Her bubbles were both spittle and scary
Although squeeky clean
Her dishes obscene
When she washes my undies I'm wary!
TigerDrankAllTheWaterInTheTap · 28/10/2018 17:35
Terrible lot of pearl clutching going on here. OP was alone and it was her own plate. Not hours old congealed plates from a leper colony, FFS! Just get a blind or nets and you can carry on with impunity!
