I'm Living in a Fantasy World

The Case of the Invisible Dishwasher

I know what you're thinking. That some invisible superhero-type person crept into my kitchen overnight and washed all my dishes for me, right?   NOT  Although, I do have to admit to that actually happening on occasion, it is not the dilemma of the day. The problem is that my dishwasher--as in the electrical appliance that washes and dries my dishes--has vanished. At least in the eyes of my family. I can see it. It really is there. But for some reason no one sees it or even acknowledges it.

It is

The reason I know this is because I keep finding dirty dishes in the sink. Even though the dishwasher is empty and there is obviously plenty of room in there, the dishes still stack up.

And there's another phenomenon happening. I think my faucet is broke. It works for me, I know because I've tried it several times just today, but I can only come to the conclusion that it's broken for everyone else because the dishes left in the sink have stuck on gicky guck that has to be chipped off or soaked for hours. 

Anyone else have this problem?


  1. Wife: Super Power-Seer of Invisible things Doer of dishes
    Husband: Bringer home of green stuff
    Son: Creater of dirty dishes

  2. Not only do these fixtures/appliances disappear in my home, but other things do as well. It would appear I am the only one who sees the laundry hamper or the garbage.

  3. Also, the vacuum and fuzz on the carpet. Don't even get me started on the toilet bowl brush!

  4. Oh, I'm glad it isn't just me. I thought I was going crazy. I always wonder how my kids will ever manage to keep their own homes clean. They probably just never leave and I'll have to clean up after them forever!

  5. My dishwasher is totally invisible. So is my laundry basket. =P

  6. So that's the problem. It's invisible. Here I thought they were just sending me an uncomfortable message. You know, something like, "Work, slave!"

    I feel so much better now. Does this mean I need to get a seeing eye dog or something?
