12. weird rules //


We had a lot of weird rules growing up. Such that I was often teased by my friends about them. (all in love, of course.) I thought I would share a few of them with you. 

1. Don't stand in front of the microwave. You might expose yourself to radiation.  

2. Also, wait an additional 3 seconds before opening the microwave door, in case there are residual microwaves still bouncing around in there. 

3. Don't needlessly open or close the garage door, or you'll wear out the motor.  If you need to open the garage door, and you know someone will be home in the next hour or so, leave it open until they get home. Don't know when they'll be home? Call them up. That's why we have cell phones, after all.

4. The only things that could go in the dishwasher were silverware, plates, bowls, and cups.  No cookware, no Tupperware, and no fancy coffee mugs. I never really questioned this rule until I met Alex and saw that his family puts EVERYTHING in the dishwasher.  I was at first a little scandalized, but have come around to the notion of putting everything in the dishwasher. And now that we have a dishwasher of our own (we didn't for the first 4 years of our marriage) I do so with great relish! 

5. Don't waste charge cycles on the cordless phones. Did you know that cordless phones have a limited number of charge cycles? Well they do, (or did 10 years ago) and every time you hang up the cordless phone on it's base, and then pick it up again, you have wasted a charge cycle. The solution to this problem is don't put the cordless phone back on it's base until the end of the day when it can fully charge over night.  The problem with this solution is that often times the cordless phone would get lost, then the battery would die, and we couldn't find it because it wouldn't ring. 

You think this is crazy? Just wait until you see the post where I detail how we sort laundry!
