What percentage of housework do you do?

If you live with another half, how much do you do? I think I do about 80% - seriously, my missis is dead lazy. If I don't do it, the place sinks into a slovenly pit of detritus.

None apart from the odd meal and clothes in the washing machine but I mainly eat out. I have a woman in a couple of times a week who does all the cleaning and takes away my ironing.

And yes there have been one or two of the saucier variety down the years
Thanks for keeping us up Gary

Our two should hook up. 8-) I cook, clean the bog, do the beds, hoover, tidy up, take the bins out, declutter, shop for food, clean the car. I think I'm mad. But like I say, if I don't do anything, the place stinks. She doesn't see the mess.

Most of the washing up. The occasional Sunday roast. Mrs Yam does the rest.

Oh yeah I do bins and shit too. Tbf, she ain't too bad my Mrs she just sees it later than I do. After a few days of a box being there that shouldn't be I usually prefer to launch it outside and flamethrower the cu.nt but she thinks taking a few things out and leaving them on the dining table constitutes 'sorting that box out'.

We've got a magic basket on the landing. I just throw my clothes in there and I think they go down some tubes or something where they're automatically washed, ironed and then fed back into my wardrobe via another tube. Brilliant device.

90% of the cooking a lot of tidying. My wife works long hours whereas I am self employed / an elected Councillor so I can fit my work in and around the family. Quite enjoy doing it to be honest.

100%. The Mrs is all over the country with her job and I love cooking.
She earns double and the rest what I earn per annum.

I'm happy with my lot to be honest. Me Mom dragged me up proper.

Well this is the thing. As I said at the start, I do about 80%, which makes me feel the missis isn't pulling her weight. But when she does do any housework, it's half arsed, which makes things worse. Her solution to "clear the shed out" was "empty the entire fecking contents in the garden and leave for a month then do nothing".

I've never used a hoover EVER
And never will I
I once cleaned a car
But that was on bob a job week
I wouldn't know one end of a mop

I also love the queen

Well as the missus has MS she is unable to do too much house work so you guessed it all the housework falls on one person, the cleaner and very good she is as well.thumbs up

That's bloke mind games - If she does it badly enough, you'll end up doing it instead.

Yeah that's it - as i said ... but she thinks taking a few things out and leaving them on the dining table constitutes 'sorting that box out'.

Most frustrating.

Yeah what's that all about? She's been sorting out my lad's room, which means spreading everything out into the corridor and then giving up. She told me not to touch it as she was gonna finish it off. It's been a week and I'm still waiting....just don't get it. 8-)

Virtually zero.

Occasionally, I'll dry up after dinner. But not often (less than once a week). When I do offer to dry up, wife says "only if you haven't got work to do in your office (upstairs).
