Anyone else's family cram all their dirty dishes in the front 1/3 of the dishwasher to avoid the hassle of opening the door all the way and rolling the racks out to reach the back?

I suppose I should just be happy when they make it into the dishwasher at all. Pthb
Our dishwasher is broken. I just handwashed 3 days worth of dishes.

Inspiration Station

One of my employees applied for another job.

When she filled out the application, she accidentally typo'd her work email address. Since I have an automatic forward on all nonexistent email addresses at my business domain, her shiny new job offer ended up in my inbox instead of hers.

Luckily, this particular employee and I have a good relationship. I knew she was job hunting for a supplemental part-time job. But we both got a good laugh out of the goof and agreed that, in other circumstances, it could have been a Very Bad Thing.

I used to (many years ago) groom cats and dogs for a living. I pretty much did all the cats that came in. Rule number one when grooming a kitty, slip a "face mask" on the kitty to keep them calm and still. A face mask is basically a muzzle, but it covers kitty's eyes as well as keeps kitty's teeth under control. The kitty will basically just stay in one place and not move with the face mask on.

I had an old collie who was great about getting groomed, until she had her stroke. She wanted to be left alone after that, but there was no way. She had this huge coat, it had to be brushed. I had to slip a muzzle on her to groom her because the old gal would bite, and bite hard. This was a dog I had raised in my kitchen from the birth, and had spent many hours grooming over her life time. I think when animals don't feel well, their tolerance is lower for this kind of thing. *Sad**Cry*

Thanks, Just Call Me Paris . That's definitely the problem. He's never bit me before in his whole life, never more than a warning nip. He just wants me to leave him alone because he doesn't feel good, but he's such a gross mess that I'm sure he can't be comfortable. He's lost so much weight. He used to be 13 pounds (bigger than both Yorkies at 8 and 9 lbs), but at the last two vet visits, he was 9 lbs, and then 6 lbs this last time. Frown The thyroid med is helping with his appetite but his coat is so far gone, I don't think he'll ever groom himself again. I'm going to try the wipes Mumsy suggested, and if he still tries to bite, I'll definitely try your mask idea. Thanks for the suggestion.

Just watched Rogue One. Trying to explain the story to hubby.

Me: Remember in Star Wars, the original movie, how the whole premise was about Princess Leia and the rebels and how they'd gotten their hands on these plans for the Death Star that exploited its weakness?

Him: Not really. I pretty much just watched it for the special effects, not the story.
