rnch saidbecause you don't want to Dirty a DIsh that you would have to wash...and then flush the crumbs down the drain?
I eat many meals at home standing up. In fact, unless my partner is joining me, I never sit down, whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Nothing to do with dishes & crumbs, cause I still use dishes and silverware. Rather, it's an Army habit, where the bumper of a deuce-and-a-half truck was often my table in the field, or just standing holding my mess kit. I disliked sitting on the ground, closer to insects and dust, and sometimes cold & wetness.
So most meals that I eat alone are standing at the kitchen counter to this day, not related to the sink a bit. I don't consider it a hardship or inconvenience in any way, actually I don't really think about it all, it's just what I automatically do.
