It has been revealed that a local lasagna dish currently soaking in dishwater inna Watsonia resident’s sink will still be there in the morning. While it was initially placed in the hot soapy water with the best intentions, it will stay in there overnight and, in the morning, the owner will have to dip their hand into frigidly cold and dirty water before running a whole new round of hot soapy water to finish cleaning the dish.

The reasons behind this reverse laziness are not always clear, but it can be assumed that after already hand washing a whole batch of dishes and then leaving the lasagna dish until last, the Watsonia resident basically had enough of the manual labour and it’s an easy out to just say the dish needs to soak to loosen up the baked on cheese, pasta, and tomato-based sauce. Then before you know it, it’s the morning and it’s time to face that skanky dish all over again.

Experts estimate that at least 62% of all dirty lasagna dishes are subject to this soak then wash process, essentially wasting up to 800 Olympic-sized swimming pools in Australia per year. However, the experts were unable to clarify how deep the swimming pools were, why they’re always referred to as “Olympic-sized” when we should just say “50-metre swimming pools”, and why Olympic-sized swimming pools are such a popular metric for comparing the usage of liquids.
