I was wondering if anyone else has been having this problem? I just updated my game to the new patch (I haven't bought Dining Out since I am now afraid it might break my game even further) and I noticed when I went into live mode that my Sims flat out refuse to take showers and that was the first bug I noticed. I then tried to make my handy sim instant upgrade the shower and he did his thing and got stuck cleaning the shower until I forced him to do something else! Also, after my sims use the toilet, they will wash their hands on a nearby "invisible" sink! Damn it, EA, is it too much to ask for a game that works?! If it were up to me, A LOT of people would be jobless right now!
