I get way, way too annoyed when people fold the towels in half instead of into thirds, the way I want them. They look so much nicer with the edges folded in.

I would rather re-arrange stuff in my dishwasher than handle nasty wet dishes layered in the sink. Or as egghead mentioned, I do the cleaning up. If the guests are still in the kitchen, they can see how I am loading the dishwasher (which is probably not completely empty when it's time to clean up).

Also kitchen related... I love my in-laws, but they take FOREVER to clean up after a meal. I can usually have things cleared out and in reusable containers, pots and pans washed, and surfaces wiped down in about 15 minutes. The last time we hosted dinner, I just left the kitchen, and when I returned an HOUR later, my spouse and in-laws were still not done clearing up and packaging stuff (in-laws were also taking home leftovers). I don't think it's coincidence that none of them have ever worked in food service.

so. much. this.
It's always some a-hole in a luxury car that obviously thinks their time is more important than mine. We all hate sitting in traffic, don't be a jerk about it.

On a side note, I recently saw someone get pulled over for this and it made my whole week. File that under the "Things that excite you more than they should" thread.

order of operations is important in the kitchen

before beginning any meal prep, dishes that have been left to dry on the drain board must be put away first

any soiled dishes sitting around must be loaded into dishwasher

run hot water with a squirt of soap in one side of a dual sink setup, the sink that is closest to food prep/work area.

clean/wipe down all food prep surfaces

clean as you go while prepping and cooking

after dining, put away leftovers first before anything else

rinse tableware (plates, glasses, utensils, etc.) and put in dishwasher

clean/wipe down cooking surfaces (stove top and surrounding area)

wash any remaining pots and pans

wipe down all counters

there are only a few right ways to do this, and yet so many do it a moran way

Seeing moron spelled "moran." I know it's on purpose but it still bothers me.

And people will just put soiled items in there and ruin the water prematurely, like partially consumed cups of chocolate milk and plates that still have trace amounts of food on them. It drives me bonkers and they look at me like I'm nuts.
How do you keep the water hot?

Yeah, I'm sure your guests will just stop what they are doing to watch you load your dishwasher, and take note of your particular arrangements...

You make actuary coin. Have the cleaning lady do it.

Are we in 1920? Most actuaries don't have live-in help to do that sort of thing.

And put me in the "don't let the dishes dry with food on them" camp. I'm happy if guests put stuff in the sink. If I'm hand-washing, I will run a pot of warm water after getting the big items out of the way.

We have a butter dish on the counter. And every time my wife or son uses the last of a stick of butter, they donít replace it. So the next time I want to make toast, I get out a new stick. But itís refrigerated, so it is impossible to spread without tearing the bread.

And every time it happens, I lose my shit.
