a valiant effort.

step one: make tons of dirty dishes.
this is an easy one, since the roommates downstairs (or RDs) use enough dishes to feed a rather large army.
step two: put dirty dishes in the dishwasher.
the RDs haven't really figured this one out yet. usually after about a week of sitting in the sink, i put the dishes in the dishwasher, at which point they thank me and tell me that they had been meaning to put everything away and just never got around to it. suuure....
step three: put detergent in the dishwasher.
this is quite possibly the easiest step. me and emily wisely bought those little packets so there's no measuring or whatever. you just pop it in and close the lid. sometimes RDs put one in just for fun. thanks guys.

i don't know why, but the RDs don't get this one. they'll put the packet in its home (maybe because that's the fun part) and then they just close up the dishwasher.
HINT #1: you have to turn ON the dishwasher. THEN it cleans the dishes.

HINT #2: it doesn't magically turn on when you put the detergent in. that is ME doing that.

HINT #3: the dishes don't magically end up inside them either, in case you were wondering. yep...that's me too.

okay thanks.

**note** when i started this post, i referred to them as the "downstairs roommates," but i think calling them DRs would be giving them just a LITTLE too much credit...
