Yet she married you. I detect an inconsistency here.

Thanks T-Al. That one sentence probably saved me a bunch of marital disharmony.

If I had to vote on best foible, it would be Sarah in SC's empty ice cream sandwich boxes. I got a laugh out of that one. Luckily that doesn't happen in my house (intentionally).

Glad to oblige! And delighted that Janet has the same problem, somehow it is true that misery loves company.

Doesn't bother me, though! When I am at his house and he offers me a yogurt, I dutifully put the container in the freezer when I'm done. At my house, the freezer just has food in it, not empty boxes and containers.
I think it is something that people do in hot climates. My brother does it too. I put my bacon grease can in the freezer before I take it down to the dumpster to avoid spilling it.

I have only done this with shrimp peels. Those things start stinking bad after a day in the kitchen garbage inside the house. It would be horrible if left in the outside garbage for a week with 90-100 degree temps.

Waste perfectly good baking soda? Sub optimal! The double wrapped bag of shrimp peels in the freezer till trash day is way more optimal.

C'mon, intuition isn't illogic. It's logic + domain knowledge, on steroids. It gets better as you get older, too. I'm extremely logical, and my natural reliance on intuition is no problem for my husband. He likes getting a quick response, that usually turns out to be right! But it hurts me at work. When I can't quite explain how I reached a conclusion or came up with an idea, some of my bosses simply refuse to believe I could be on to something.
Later, when they arrive at the same conclusion, themselves, or another co-worker does, it becomes the greatest solution EVER but I get no credit, dammit . So my only course is to keep quiet about my ideas until I've figured out a tedious, methodical explanation.
