  • I mean, ok, look, there's 3 levels of Things That Piss Yr Boyfriend Off.

    1) Things that piss him off for totally justifiable reasons.

    2) Things that piss him off for reasons that are petty, but that are understandable as individual quirks / idiosyncrasies / pet peeves.
    (hey, c'mon, we all have *something* that bugs us waaayyyy more than it rationally should)

    and...
    3) Things that piss him off for ABSOLUTELY NO CONCEIVABLE SENSIBLE REASON AT ALL.

    This one is DEFINITELY in category 3.

    You eat in the kitchen.
    The kitchen sink accepts other food waste.
    Obviously, it is a legitimate place to wash food waste off yr hands -- just as you'd wash THE SAME food waste off plates, silverware, etc. Lmao.

    I mean... ok. The shit in category 2 is what starts stupid fights. But this is in category 3, not category 2. This is SO stupid, and SO impossible to understand, that it wouldn't even annoy me -- it would just make me SOOOO AMAZINGLY CURIOUS!

    I mean... I'm not even you, and I don't even know this guy, and I SERIOUSLY WANNA KNOW WHY he has this problem. I want to know. This is a puzzle, and I can't solve it, and it's bugging the shit out of me that I can't come up with even a single halfway reasonable explanation.

    If I were you, I'd just ask him, out of genuine wonderment!
    "Dude!
    What the heck!
    I'm so curious! Did yr grampa lose a hand in the kitchen garbage disposal when you were little, or something?"
    LOL

    Srsly -- don't even get pissed, just try to get to the bottom of this. This is SO WEIRD that there *has* to be some reason behind it. You might even get a quirky story about the boy's childhood out of it, ya never know.

    • Oh, and --
      The kitchen vs. bathroom sink is petty, yes, yr right.

      Which is exactly why HIS making it into an *issue* is NOT petty.

      You see what I mean? It's such an unimportant crap thing. The LESS important something is, the MORE of a warning sign it is -- for yr relationship -- if he tries to control or restrict it.

      If he's trying to control tiny little details that totally don't matter, that's something that you HAVE to bring out into the open RIGHT NOW.
      If you don't, then either (1) yr relationship will disintegrate, OR (2) you'll find yrself in an abusive relationship where he tries to micromanage literally every iota of yr life.

      Srsly, this is pretty important. You should be laughing/smiling when you FIRST bring it up, but, it's important.

  • It seems a little unusual. People are creatures of habit, and are taught to wash their hands in the bathroom so much, that just sorta becomes their go to place to wash their hands. I don't see why it would be an issue though if you washed them in the kitchen.

  • I think he feels it's unsanitary due to washing fruits and veggies and other edible things in the kitchen sink. Who knows for sure, yet you should ask him to be sure. I was mine in the kitchen and the bath there's no preference for me, except when I've been doing automotive work, I'll use the garden hose as I don't want grease in my sinks.

  • I have done it but more so in the bathroom sink. I think it is just the mental image that the kitchen sink is for dishes and it is more normal in the bathroom sink. That said, you may have done many more nights of dishes and are used to washing up after that while you are right there at the kitchen sink, so you are used to it and he may not be.

  • I don't think it weird at all. When i'm done with my food, I go to the kitchen to put the dirty dish in, and then wash my hand (if needed).

    Why the fuck he mad at you over it tho? What the big deal I don't see it.

    • Exactly

    • Well you know what the say... You never really know a person until you live with them. Most people act differently when they are in the comfort of their home vs outside in public.

      I don't think this is a deal-breaker per say, but this is definitely something to be wary of.

  • That's stupid for him to be mad about that. I wash my hands in the kitchen sink probably 50% of the time in a day.

    • Just because it's his place doesn't mean he can tell you where to wash your hands. He doesn't own you. Just dump him, he already sounds like a headache.

    • He made me feel bad said it with such a may tone too.

  • wtf.

  • I Made it a Habit Hard to Break when I was out in Egypt and after every Meal Deal... I washed my hands in the bathroom sink.
    Now after eating, When I am home, I go to the sink and wash the dishes right away so this is in essence "Washing my hands" so I don't have to use the bathroom to wash Them... Unless of course, I need to Do something else.
    No Matter what Sink you use, Both should be Disinfected anyways.
    Good luck and Great question. xx
