Dishwasher? Yes Please!

We’ve all heard of the terrible trouble husbands have gotten into by giving their wives an appliance as a gift.  Ok, so maybe Valentine’s Day isn’t the ideal day to gift such items, but in general why is this gesture so bad??

I am currently living in Italy, a land where dishwashers, vacuum cleaners, and clothes dryers are elusive luxuries, and have hand washed my dishes for the better part of a year.  I would be thrilled to tears to receive a dishwasher for Valentine’s Day, my birthday, or any other similar occasion.

While I am sure it’s true that I have an extra new found appreciation for helpful appliances, I think we could and should cut our hubbies some slack when they surprise us with gifts of this nature.  Hint Hint…
