    Beer glass etiquette

    The wife is using my Surly beer glass for her fruit smoothies.
    Is this appropriate?
    If not, what should I do about it?

    You may answer like it's the OC.

    At my house, the beer glasses go into a different cupboard so they get used for ONLY beer. it's a pretty fair arrangement.

    Leave toilet seat up, use curling iron for melting plastic stuff, poop with door open, etc until she stops.

    This is unacceptable behavior and it must be stopped.

    Mine are only hand washed by me with no soap. My wife knows that the beer glasses are for beer and beer only. Our regular glasses look similar but they are more like 12 ounces and it is very easy to tell the difference. Plus the beer glasses are in the right side while regular glasses go in the left.

    I have 3, 2 of them are probably not replaceable, beer glasses that I use and are in the cupboard in their own row away from the the other glasses. I also hand wash them. She likes them because of their size, they are imperial pints (20oz). She does have other options and I have expressed concern that she uses them. She doesn't seem to heed my warnings or uneasiness that she could drop it or that my 1yr old will grab it off the table. I do not imbibe while the boy is awake because I do not want to take the chance that he will grab it as I interact with him. I also don't want to be in a position where I need to respond quickly because he falls or is getting into something he shouldn't and don't pay attention to how close the glass is to the edge of the table when I set it down to grab him. I hesitate to purchase one for her because I don't see them as general use glassware. I also don't want to be a D1&k about it. She is too laissez faire about them for my liking though. Perhaps I just need to find something amongst her crafting or scrapbooking tools to use as an example. Oh, the going to the bathroom with the door open won't work, I won't explain further.

    Leaving freshy shaven whiskers in the bathroom sink seems to be a pretty hot-button issue for a lot of women. maybe try that instead if pooping with the bathroom door open doesn't work.

    Put them in a locking cabinet and wear the key on a string around your neck. make your point clear.

    Smoothie: a smooth, thick drink made with puréed fresh fruit and yogurt, ice cream, or milk or a thick beverage of fruit pureed in a blender with some combination of milk or yogurt, juice, and ice.Apparently, it's been a word since the '90's.

    I trick my wife and kids by leaving pint glasses in the freezer while my real beer glasses are stored with the wine glasses.

    This is not a bad idea. Misdirection is a good method, and she would like the chilled glass for the smoothie. This could work.

    OK, I'm just gonna flat out say no to the violence. I prefer Nelson's or Gandhi's non-violence methodology. However, I will admit I did say that an OC response was allowed, but that advice shall not be followed.

    Buy her some plastic tumblers in her favorite color and give them to her with a polite note that they are just for her to use with her smoothies and that you promise to not put beer in her smoothie glasses and kindly request she not put fruit in your beer glasses.

    Kill her with Kindness as they say.

    Smoothies sound horrid. It would need whiskey just to make it palatable.
    You could sack-up and ask her not to use your pint glasses if it's a problem for you.
    Or, wash a glass once in a while.

    If you do buy the solo cups, do not forget the ping pong balls.

    Buy her another one. They're cheap. Then hide yours out of reach or somewhere she won't go, like in the garage!

    I have far too many beer-specific glasses (at least 30) but I only use about 5 of them regularly. My wife knows to stay away from those.

    it's a glass get over it. so it has a "special" logo printed on it. i think you might need to change your tampon before you get an infvcktion. big deal, worry about something that matters, like what you're going to put into said glass. keep on drinking your "king of beers", killer. keep stepping one foot into tomorrow, leaving one in yesterday, and piss on today. g'day with a g'knight, from oskar blues.

    ps. never drink from a can, or a bottle.
