So what’s worse than piles of dishes stacking up besides the sink for weeks on end? You may be thinking that there are many things worse than dirty dishes, like say…finding out the kid you “adopted”, for only 25 cents a week, in the Sudan just died of starvation, or the fact that you lost your job at the ice cream parlor, or maybe the fact that there is an alien spore that has come to America from deep space and is now turning everyone into emotionless auto-bots (see “The Invasion” staring Nichole Kidman). But these things are mere pennies compared to the sink full of dirty dishes. If you don’t believe me…I put a hex on you.
How you deal with this is exactly what separates the men from the boys (sorry post modern feminist that may be reading this, “separate the girls from the women” just doesn’t have the same ring to it) This problem is best dealt with unspokenly (not a word)…when you start to see your roommates things piling up in your sink that you need to use to pour old beer down, simply remove the dishes and create a mountain of steam-ware that will absolutely fall on your inconsiderate roommate the next time he/she tries to leave a dirty dish. This has many effects. First the asshole that left the dishes will suffer deep cuts from the falling plates. If this does not teach them a lesson, piling up the bowls will also create a smell that would make a bum in San Fransisco jealous. This is all done with out you having to say one word…Easy for you and hell for them to try and clean up. In other words, you win… which is exactly what you wanted in the first place when you stacked their plates outside the sink in an attempt to piss them off, instead of being the bigger man and just talking to them about the problem you have with the dishes.
I hope gives you some kind of direction in which use next time you are faced with a problem like this. This technique can also work for other nasty things that should never be stacked in an attempt to piss off someone who will not help you. For example: Dirty diapers, chew spit, and used needles. All nasty and not to be stacked.
Live long and prosper
