Roommate’s Boyfriend Discovers Dishwasher
VOUTE HALL — In a turn of events some are calling “a miracle on Commonwealth Ave,” Ty DePod (CSOM ‘22) made his first documented use of the dishwasher in his girlfriend Dawn Potts’ (MCAS ‘22) four-man suite.
“Up to this point, I’d been debating whether he’s just lazy or truly doesn’t understand how to use the dishwasher,” exclaimed Pott’s roommate Sheila Wool (CSON ‘22), shaking her head fondly. “I thought maybe he was one of those guys with the audacity to be unaware of everyday household chores, some kind of pathetic product of a society that lets dudes enter adulthood without caring about cleaning, even when they’re guests in other households. But, I guess not!”
“I remember his exact words because it was so shocking to me,” added fellow roommate Ginny Thompson (LSOE ‘22). “He brought his cereal bowl, still half-full of soggy cheerios sitting in congealed milk, to the sink, and then pulled open the dishwasher. ‘Can I put this in here?’ he asked me, and crammed it into the cup section before I could ask him to rinse it out first. But still, baby steps! We’re so proud of the little guy” she laughed.
At time of press, the women of Voute 511 are busy unloading the dishwasher, which unfortunately included an empty can of Chef Boyardee™ Beefaroni. “He’ll remember next time,” Potts promised her roommates.
