Hi I was just wondering what household chore you dislike the most.

Mine is cleaning the bathroom/toilet.

Many years ago at my first church, the pastor said there would be toilets to clean in heaven.
When I asked him why, he referred to Jesus eating fish while in his resurrected body and someone having to clean up after all that eating and the subsequent waste disposal.

I never quite worked out whether he was serious or not, but as there will be no more crying, tears or sorrow in heaven, then I assume if there are toilets in heaven then that little job won't be given to me ;-)

Humm just a thought but I hope there are no Andrex puppies to clean up after either! Only kidding.

So what chore do you dislike the most.

I don't mind any of it - but when you get it looking half-way how you  want; clean, tidy, not too cluttered -  and then it all gets sabotaged... that is very wearing on the house-wifely heart. It's like birds building nests innit - that twig goes THERE, and that one tucks under THERE, and then she settles down to  look after her brood all snug and contented... well MY twigs never  get to go where I want them... very frustrating!

I enjoy household chores and so does my domestic servant , it keeps her in a job and busy.   :whistling:

 

After all, "A women's work is never done" ( Rightfully so)

PS. I refuse to use the term ,"Charlady", it is not pc.   :26:

i have no favorite chores. but when my older grandsons (ages 8, 6 and 6) are here, they have chores... daily chores, including the toilet and the bathroom sink. right now my 3 year old grandson is staying for a month... he's mostly but not completely potty trained... and i'm teaching him that when he pees, he has to get toilet paper and wipe down the rim of the toilet (and anywhere else he might have sprayed) and put the seat back down. 

 

never too young to train a little man how to keep a woman happy, right? :)

 

i just had my first granddaughter. i don't think i'll bother teaching her to clean toilets. men make the messes, they should be the ones to clean it!

I can confirm that LadyC. For a fairly brief time I was one of those 'wot does' offices,  and  I had charge of three floors and the loos for both genders ( they had usually gone home by the time I got around to that bit mind, but we did have a couple of 'oops' moments), I always found the ladies loos to be very clean and tidy, but the little boys rooms - ugh!!

ncn, slander? HAHAHAHAHAHA sue me! 

 

seriously, it is true, and i think every little boy should be required to clean the toilet every time they use it... from age 3 to 93!

 

but in truth, i really do hate chores. ALL chores. i would probably not mind cooking if it didn't mean having to clean the kitchen afterwards. but then again, i don't really enjoy cooking even if someone else does the cleaning... the cleaning is the worst part. i hate sweeping. i hate mopping. i hate washing dishes. i hate washing laundry. i REALLY hate putting laundry away. i hate scooping the cat boxes. i hate mowing the lawn... and that's the biggest chore of all because our mower is not self propelled, and our yard is 70 x 200 feet... i used to think my yard was flat until i had to mow it. suddenly i discovered it is actually sloped.

 

another detestable chore is changing the sheets. ugh. what a pain in the patootie. 

 

the sad part is, i'm a stay at home wife/daughter/grandma. (my 88 year old grandmother lives here so i can look after her, and i frequently have one or more grandkids stay.) so living in squalor is not an option. somebody has to do the housework... mark works, mom's too old, and gabriel's too young. that leaves just me. and for every chore that might have a shortcut, i've probably discovered it. and if i haven't, i hope someone will teach me!

 

that's what we need... a domestic shortcuts thread!

There is a simple answer .

 

It is strategically placed.  :26:

If said toilet paper is not removed,  how would men know that the cleaning lady had done her job?

No way, tell you what, surprise her. Wait until there's a whole heap of dishes and get stuck in.

Although maybe not, she might faint!

Sweeping is tiresome. Cleaning the toilet is terrible.

I don't mind dishes.

On the rare occasion I've ironed, I've quite enjoyed it.

I hate vacuum-cleaning and I hate the sound of anybody else doing it. In fact vacuum-cleaners disturb sleep, disturb TV and disturb anybody else in the house.

you can come iron over here if you want oak. i hated that chore so much that i threw away my iron. i do have one of those multipurpose shark steam thingies though, and one of the attachments is for steaming clothes. that's still not my favorite thing (and the sound of the steam is pretty noisy) but i'd much rather use it on a hanging piece of clothing than to iron. and once in a while, i do.
