Why do you assume stuff is missing? Could it be that your kitchen elf is bringing you those unmatched items? All the stuff that goes missing elsewhere has to go SOMEWHERE, right?

I always just blame my mother!!! I reckon when I eventually move house, I will find out that she has been putting things in places that she would have put them in her house when I was a kid. Probably her way of saying she doesn't agree with my storage layout!! LOL

Hey I have a resident named not me here too... even though Billy is the only child.
Try and figure THAT one out lmao.
We have a number of unmatched lids and bowls here also.
Oh and the socks ! We're out buying socks every couple of months.

Not Me and Ida Know are twin residents in hiding here... someday I will catch them and make them pay for all the stuff they have lost or broken!
Maybe we should have a warrant issued for their arrest? LOL "Wanted in connection to multiple sock, bowl, and lid thefts as well as untold amounts of mischief unaccounted for".

A woman I work with has Somebody in her house, as in, her DH says, "Somebody needs to clean up around here," or "Somebody needs to get dinner started."

I've heard this so many times. Of course, I have a few very likely suspects. But a while back I decided I was tired of trying to sort it all out so what I do now is call everybody in and say "I don't know and I'm not asking who did this or how it happened. But I expect this to be cleaned up/found/sorted out/etc. by the end of the day" and then I sweep majestically out of the room. (Sometimes it even works!)

We have a young woman who comes in once a week to do cleaning, laundry, etc. She is a dear person, but when she empties the dishwasher or puts away laundry, we never know where things are going to be.
Kim gets especially ticked about his meat forks. He can never find them when he needs one.

This happens to me every day because my kids unload the dishwasher and put away the laundry.

As long as they don't get it backwards, glasses do not do well on the spin cycle...
