Some The New Yorker cartoonists, Simon Rich and Farley Katz, must have been spying on my wife and me. This is exactly what happens almost every time I load the dishwasher.
When the man is loading the dishwasher, and the woman must come over, because he is loading it wrong, it is called the "dishwasher position."
Great two-page spread, Simon and Farley.
Humor like this and intelligent articles are why I've been a long time The New Yorker subscriber (and the lack thereof are why I recently cancelled my Newsweek subscription).
