I don't do perky

So, I'm watching a commercial for some Jet Dry cleaning tabs, lamenting the fact that I don't own a dishwasher, which wouldn't really matter seeing that even when I did have one I never used it. No machine, except for the washing machine, could possibly out-clean me. Back to the dish washing tabs. The woman in the commercial is so totally grating on my nerves. She sounds like one of those mothers you hear about who wait until all the kids are at school and her husband is out the door before she locks herself in the bathroom to steal some of little Johnny's Ritalin. She's talking a hundred miles an hour and I swear her pupils looked dilated. I'm getting sea sick just watching her head bob.

She is who they select to represent their quick dry tabs? The woman obviously has more energy than ten electrasol quick dry tabs and four cycles of dish washing on high. For Phen Phen maybe, but dish washing tabs that save time and energy? Phooey. She strikes me as someone who would double wash her dishes and then scrub them down with a toothbrush and magnifying glass. The woman is obviously on something here!

I, on the other hand, don't do and won't do perky. If they hired someone like me for their commercial it would be a lot more believable.

Electrasol Quick Dry Tabs
Because no one wants to wait for her to
"get to it when I get to it, darnit!"

I know many Chamorros who do not use their dishwashers. This puzzles me because it's been such a lifesaver. For real.

Mona, Who says we don't use dishwashers???? Mine's named Patricia. teehee..All kidding aside, I think its because we are so use to having housekeepers to wash our dishes for us. I bet if we had to wash them ourselves, more people would invest in dishwashers...I know I would...I HATE washing dishes!

I hate washing dishes because they never seem to stay clean (duh). I still wouldn't use a dishwasher and never did because I'm just to anal about cleanliness. I know, I know, it's a totally Chamorro thing.

Our family has three diswashers:
Me, my wife, and my daughter. Sometimes they break down.

Is the warranty still good on any of them?
