Hand washing dishes after having them soak in water. The grimy dishwater, despite being theoretically clean, just groses me out too much. I prefer to either clean them immediately after dinner, or prep them for the dishwasher.

yes but it's currently non functional.

some sensor or pump went on it and AHAM and I are in disagreement on the fact that I should be able to order the bloody part instead of paying a tech $170.

so I've been hand washing lately...

luckily I recently upgraded my sink lol.

Yeah, it's weird in that it's not just them, companies want you to throw the old away and buy the new, not fix the one you have forever. It's wasteful, and something that really drives me to learn new skills in an effort to go against this idea. I've also found it's usually cheaper to fix something than either buy another or pay someone to fix it.

For example. A toaster is a really simple device. It works on converting resistance into thermal radiation. So when a wire in the wire mesh breaks, it doesn't toast evenly, or at all in that slot. $5 in wire and some wirework + soldering later and it's working again. Saving a few bucks and keeping it from the landfill. It's not much but it helps the planet, helps save money, and much like computers vs people, is easier than it seems.

but above all countries the place I want to visit most isn't a country, it's a continent.
