So I'm like, sure, I respect your values. So no one shares the cup he's using, ever (no one takes a sip of his water, for example).
BUT,
for some insane reason, it's ok with him to 'just rinse out' the cup he just used when he's done using it and put it in the dishrack that way. Anyone else could then end up using that cup and catch his germs, right?! I've told him I'd rather he just leave them for me to actually wash, but he can't seem to do that . (I wash everyone's used dishes -- don't ever just rinse anything out.)

So he thinks it's ok, though, since everyone else in the house (me and dc) are into the 'immune system theory' that he doesn't wash the cups he uses.

I say, if HE believes that germs cause sickness alone, then how could he put them in the dishrack with a clear conscience??

I think it's just his way of copping out -- changing his beliefs to suit whatever point he's making at any given moment.

But, , it's sure hard to take someone seriously that doesn't walk their talk!
Well, *my* dh refrigerates his dirty glasses. His theory is that if it is in the refrigerator then it is still "good" and he can use it the next time he gets a drink. These aren't water glasses, mind you, he doesn't reuse water glasses He reuses milk and soda glasses. Your refrigerator is full of food, mine is full of dirty dishes.
