Saboteur:  Someone who purposefully commits obstruction of property or obstruction of normal operations.

Normal Operations:  Chores.  ie: loading the dishwasher and starting the cleaning process.

Dishwasher: (1) a modern household appliance that rinses, cleans, and dries dishes using heat, steam, water, and specific dishwasher soap.  (2) A person who cleans dishes.

The problem herein lies in the person who has the chore of the kitchen this week.  Said person tries everything they can to eliminate chores, responsibility, and positive attitudes.  Instead, this person becomes the saboteur by adding liquid soap to the equation.   A perfect recipe for mom to have to clean up, versus the kid whose chore it is to do so.

Oh dear! One of mine did it once because we'd run out of the stuff for the dishwasher - thought the washing-up liquid would be OK if he didn't use too much... I feel your pain having to clear that up.
Did your saboteur "fess up"? You're sure it wasn't your youngest man put something in the bottom before it was even loaded?
I know it's wrong, but I just want to hug your saboteur.. he (or she!) really does feel "hard done by"...... :-( Don't be too hard on them.
