We all have those chores or odd jobs around the house that we completely hate! The jobs that make us groan out loud at the very thought of.
I am no different and I have a list as long as my arm of job I can put up with but I also have a list of jobs I would avoid like the plague and I am more then happy to past off to my hubby or I will leave them until they really need to be done or even better I just won’t do them at all!
(I know that makes me sound really bad but not all of these job at that important)
So here my list
- The Washing Up
I completely hate the washing up with a passion but with 7 of us living in 1 house. It not exactly something that can be left. Luckily for me though it was a job my hubby happily agreed too and I very nearly had it write in to our wedding vow.
“I promise to love, honour and always wash up” has a catching ring to it wouldn’t you say?
- Pairing socks
In this house it’s a fend for yourself kind of approach to pairing socks. I just can’t stand sitting there pairing and matching socks because you are never fully finished because there is always those few left over singles that you can never find the match to. It infuriate me, so instead of putting myself through the undo stress of marrying socks. I just put them all in a basket and you fend for yourself and if you find a pair, BONUS!
Some people say they love ironing but I just do not see the appeal. Specially when I know my kids will just end up rolling around creasing them again or shoving them in a draw very untidily. I save my time and sanity and only iron if I have too or I’ll ask the hubby to do it.
- Scrubbing the toilet
I think this is a universal one for most people. I know it needs doing and I will do it if and when I have too, but it a very unpleasant experience. Specially when I have 2 boys at home that seriously need to work on their target practise.
- Sorting through the clutter
This is one of those tedious jobs that I hate. Mainly because of the constant onslaught of paper work I get given for the kids school or hospital appointments. Then there is the fact that they never stop growing out of clothes or mixing up and breaking their toys. Which means that at least once a month I have to go on a declutter mission that ends up taking hours or sometimes days out of my life. Just for the clutter to re-accumulate within a matter of days.
So there you go my lists of job that I despise having to do but will do if I have too. (Well apart from the socks, I’m just not going there)
Do you have any jobs that you hate?
Is there any job you won’t do?
And who does them for you, if you don’t?
