In an Ask Me Anything interview on Reddit earlier this week, Microsoft founder and philanthropist Bill Gates said that he generally washed the dishes at Gates Mansion, largely because he didn’t like the way other people did it. Can you relate to that?

“Other people volunteer but I like the way I do it,” Gates explained. I feel the same way. I want the dishes at my place washed in a specific order and placed in a precise location on the rack to dry. But I’m sure there are many other people who take the view that as long as someone else is doing the dishes (or loading the dishwasher), they don’t care how they get done. Where do you sit?
