    Not Because I Don't Want One

    I don't have a dishwasher and I end up with way too many dishes in the sink, with not enough water to wash and rinse them properly. Supposedly we can not afford one or a well, but can spend thousands on classic cars that go into other peoples garages.

    I don't have one, if I get a house with one,
