A lively discussion has been sparked between a Greensborough husband and wife after the husband left a dirty knife sitting on the edge of the kitchen sink yesterday. The discussion was led by the wife, who accused her husband of being lazy and told him that she was running out of patience for cleaning up after him.

However, the husband claimed that a dirty knife on the edge of a kitchen sink is the universal signal that the knife may be called upon in the near future to apply an undisclosed spread to a piece of bread – cooked or otherwise. The wife initially disputed the claim, but was then forced to concede when the husband looked up a number of amusing memes on social media suggesting that he was right.

Speaking exclusively to The Watsonia Bugle about the incident, the husband said, “She just went off her tree mate, I couldn’t understand what she was going on about. I thought everyone knew what the dirty knife on the edge of the sink meant, but she must’ve been hiding under a rock for the last 20 years!”
