I have a large family. We have 15 birthday parties a year along with the normal occasions like holiday parties, cook outs and end-of-school bashes.
As you can imagine, the disposable dishes are a nightmare. I try to pass on them, but I get complaints about “dirtying dishes” and “convenience.”
And I get suckered in and feel guilty. But I completely said no this time. And I will continue to say no.
If I get complaints, I will offer up my dish-washing services and stand my ground.
No more disposable dishes!!
