Apparently the roommate is a hoarding of dishes now. I asked the roommate to just leave the utensils in the sink and I would clean them because the utensils were not getting clean. I haven’t seen one iota of any utenstils which makes me think the utensils and possibly some dishes are being held hostage in the roommates room except when the roommate needs to use them.
Edited to add: Well, I was sorely mistaken. I finally got home from the gym and filled the water dish again and the sponge was all nasty to which it prompted me to check the utensils and dishes. Nasty, nasty, NASTY! I tossed that shit in the dishwasher.
