I don't mind if things get a little messy, but I can't stand when things are dirty. For example, I can't stand dirty dishes left undone (even if they are in the sink), but I am okay with dishes not being put away and sitting on the counter for several days after I've already washed them. Chris is okay with them sitting out for awhile, too, since it is his job to dry them and put them away once they're clean :) Most of the time he'll do it right away, or even do it while I'm washing dishes, but sometimes they've stacked up a day or two and when I run out of room in the middle of cleaning more dishes, I've got to encourage him a bit.
Anyway, the other day Chris was getting ready for bed and he called out from the bathroom asking me if I was done in there for the evening or if I was going to go back in again that night. I told him I was done in there, but then I started wondering why he asked in the first place. So I yelled back asking why he wanted to know if I was going in there again tonight. His response? "Oh, I just wanted to know if I had to wipe down the sink or not." He got water everywhere but figured if I wasn't coming back in there he wouldn't have to clean it up because it'd be dry by morning! Ridiculous logic, if you ask me!
We are both a little lazy about cleaning sometimes but I like to think things get done even when I'm not checking up on them :)
