Call me crazy, but should a grown adult be told to clean up a mess they made while cooking?

    • In a pefect world, no.  But let’s face it, some people are slobs who don’t even see the mess and you have to tell them.

    • It does make for less work if you clean as you go happy.

    • Sad to say that so many people are oblivious to the messes they make.  If a family member or friend made the mess I would tell them and help as well. If a coworker did it, NO.  

      I agree with Virgogoldp - clean as you go makes less work. Some grown adults just don’t get it.

    • IMO, it’s about respect.  If a person respects you and your home, he/she will not leave a mess.  It is inconsiderate and lazy to leave a mess of any kind for another person to clean up!

    • I agree with both Daphne and Linda7, but it’s also my personal belief that everyone should pitch in after a meal when it comes to clean up time. Friends, family, guests, or permanent residents, it causes us all to work in unison. As a guest, one can always remember to offer some assistance. The host always has the option to say to our guests, thank you for offering and then say yes or no.

      Atomic you have made a very valid point as well. I’m guessing you‘re speaking of fast food services. Just in case you are, it irks me to no end when people don’t clear their tables, especially if they are capable. Have a great weekend all.

    • In the perfect world (that doesn’t exist) the answer is no you shouldn’t have to but everyone is different.  Not everyone is neat and tidy and not everyone “gets it” that they should clean up the mess they leave behind.  And I agree it does go along with “respect“.

    • Speaking from my point of view, the men in my family (hub, son, dad) are all considerate and do clean up the best they can..it probably comes from hearing the women in the family complaining about not being a slave to their mess.estatic

      What I do have a problem with though is the lack of respect of neighbors, strangers and people in general who don’t clean up their properties, homes, themselves..it is a disgrace and just reinforces the opinion of how Americans don’t give a hoot about anything..where is the integrity anymore?

    • Well I have never had to tell and adult to clean up.  Now the kids, yes.  IMO, and adult knows better.  It’s just plain old common sense and courtesy.

      I always clean as I cook, like mentioned earlier.  Mothers Day we had both sides of the family over and I prepared shishkabobs, potatoes, grilled tomatoes.  When the food was ready to be cooked the kitchen was clean.  Even my husband was impressed with that one!  LOL
