One of those minor things influencing household chemistry.
I prefer to have “my” drinking glass. Why? I just prefer to. I prefer glass over plastic, a bigger glass, and like the thought of avoiding the waste of using a few glasses over the course of the day. But the bottom line - I just prefer to. Seems easy enough - I rinse it out after use, leave it at my place setting in the kitchen and slip it into the dishwasher when it’s time to wash a load.
I don’t have a specific type of glass - if the one that is Mine breaks, I just get a different one.
My wife basically acts as if this were not the case. 20+ years in, if she is setting the table, she grabs a few matching glasses and sets them out.
I do not get that. It’s never led to an argument, but it tweaks my nose in one of those old-time domestic bliss sort of ways. And I am sure it has that underlying frustration for her, too - she prefers the kitchen table cleared (it never is - kids’ text books, papers to sign - stuff), likes things to match, etc.
Just thinking about it when it happened again. No big deal, but kinda ::sigh::.
How about you - is this a common issue? Either specifically about drinking glasses, or something similar? This doesn’t feel like the “Toilet Seat Issue” - I think there is a correct answer there (i.e., a woman might fall into the toilet if they try to use it in the middle of the night - keeping the lid down is the right thing to do in a mixed-gender household)…this just feels like a little thing that crops up once a week or so…
