I may be way out of line here, but ever since Himself decided he would do the Atkins diet his own way and started making bacon, ham and eggs every morning, the cusses and clatters and cries of "Why can't the pans I use be on top? Why do we have so many pots and pans?" that start my day have made me look 10 years older. A man who has finally understood the concept of nesting storage doesn't sound all that bad.
SH is so right. Wellfedfred is right that a man who understands the concept of nesting storage should be appreciated.
You guys are right: it could be much worse. I really should appreciate a man who likes order!
Reverse the gender roles and this is a conversation in my house.
Order is good. But does SH know what a spoon rest is for?
Hah! This reminds me of when I (a female engineering type) realized at the ripe age of 25 that I could sort my laundry into hot/cold on a daily basis! Which meant that I could do a load of whites (which accumulated faster) when that basket was full instead of waiting for there to be enough colds too. I told my (male, humanities type) roommate about this, and he was as dismissive of the life changing properties. But, really, clean sheets, underwear, towels, twice as often, plus making laundry day less overwhelming (I think our building had two laundry machines but you might still have to wait to use them), seemed worth celebrating to me.
Anon, back when I lived by myself, I had one basket for whites and anoter for colors. (Which sounds vaguely Jim Crow-ish.) It was nice not having to do everything all on the same day but as needed.
