Stand And Whisper

Little quirks like knowing how to get the perfect temperature in the shower and the ideal volume setting on the TV are the small things which make a house our home.

It’s also decorating it in our own taste and knowing exactly where everything lives.

One of the things we do every day without a second thought is put away all our kitchen utensils in the same place time and time again after they’ve been cleaned.

We throw cutlery in the drawer in the same order as if it doesn’t matter at all. But it turns out it does. A lot.

A man who posted a simple picture of his cutlery drawer sparked an unexpected, and fairly ferocious, debate after claiming it was the correct and only way to get the job done.

The image looked fairly innocuous, showing the cutlery all put into its place, but it was the order in which he did it which saw tempers flare.

Posting to the Facebook group How To Dad, he bravely stated: “I’m sorry but if your cutlery drawer doesn’t go in the order ‘knives, forks, spoons’ then you need to go.”

It racked up comments as many were horrified by his arrangement, claiming it made no sense, as reported by The Sun.

Others suggested the drawer should follow the same pattern as you set a table, with forks on the left, followed by knives and then spoons.

One snapped back: “Why would you put the knives on the left in the drawer when at the table you hold your knife with your RIGHT hand?”

A second echoed this tactic, replying: “Put the knife and fork in the drawer as you would lay them on the table… then spoons go to the side. Honestly, I despair for mankind. I had no idea so many people were getting this simple concept so wrong!”

One even argued that spoons should be placed in the middle – only to quickly be told they were a ‘psychopath’.
