Men can also be relied upon to buy the wrong sized clothes for their partner



That would be a lot easier to do correctly if women's sizes made any gosh darn sense, and if the same size between different brands and different stores was always the same actual size.

and if women would readily admit their size when asked.  Honey, those sizes are cryptic, so whether you tell me you're a size 13 or 15, I'm not going to suddenly think you're any fatter than I thought before.

I learned the reason women take so long to shop is because the MUST try on everything to make sure it fits.  A size 4 is not always a size 4.  While I can go in, grab a stack of medium polo shirts and a couple of 30x32 Wrangers and I'm done.

I'm only 5'11 so there's all sorts of weird-ass yoga and the summoning of every fiber in my body to get that that damned smoothie mixer she uses once a year (invariably in the back of the cabinet for some reason).

I got married when I was 28 and was almost never without a girlfriend or a hook-up between the ages of 19 and 26 (I started late but made up for it in volume and frequency). What more do I need to know?

I hear you on the Jekyll and Hyde - I used to think that about my wife. But when I look back now I realize it was always all there: the nagging, the mercernary outlook, the eating too much cake. I just chose to ignore it because BY GOD PENIS WAS GETTING WHAT IT NEEDED.

I have a deal with the spiders in my house that they can hang out in the wall corners and under the heat vents as long as they do their fair share of catching the gnats, beetles, and pillbugs that regularly invade the premises.  But if I find them on my hairdryer or TV remote, they're getting a tissue-escorted trip to the toilet.

Shiat, I'm a guy and I've had problems with that even with one and the same store and brand depending on what corner of the store the items come from.
Lately the best thing were store-brand belts:
the sizes for belts should be pretty straight forward as you can just state what the distances are between the buckle and the two holes that are the furthest apart.
I found belts of the "same" length according to the labels to have a length difference of a foot or even more. Holding two "same lenghts" belts next to each other, they didn't have a single hole that would overlap.

While I don't like it, I can sort of understand that XXL shirts from the dedicated "plus-size" section of the store are waaay larger than the occasional XXXL shirt in the rest of the store.
But whose bright idea was it to label a 50 inch belt as "45 inches"?

Anyway, my wife and I were trying to find a hobby or household project she could do on her own and enjoy without me getting involved.  We couldn't think of one.  Gardening?  Nope, can't use the tools.  Finishing old furniture? Nope, same deal. Sewing? Nope, I'm the one that can sew.  Filling in holes in the backyard? Nope, can't move the wheel barrow.

Go ahead and rent an apartment to a woman in her twenties. Single, divorced, whatever.

Place would be filthy 80% of the time within a month. There would also be a cat.

I don't know what happened, but there's a whole generation of women lacking basic domestic skills or pride. I noticed this after burning through 5 girlfriends in my early thirties. Most of them in their mid twenties.

I'm beginning to think that the reason those homes were spotless in the '50's is because it was still acceptable to go all Sean Connery on them if they sat at home and did nothing.

Maybe it's because of the workplace I was in that would encourage merciless hazing or taunting if you didn't clean up after yourself.

"Oh, look! Somebody left his plates on the table, guess he misses his Mommy so much he wants her to come by and pick them up for him!" -Then the offending objects would be carefully tucked into your bunk.

That's okay, women are only good for complaining about things men have achieved (most of society forever) not being good enough, or how hard it is to lose weight/how society is fat phobic and doesn't appreciate the true beauty of their curves(one sphere is not actually multiple curves but lets just go with itl).  Oh or biatching about how wrong people are to think someone hotter than they are is attractive.

Its a lot of fun when people are assholes about the opposite sex just because they're different and think about things differently isn't it?

/Seriously if you want to have like everything I said in the first paragraph essentially proven, go get a Tumblr.

Men can also be relied upon to buy the wrong sized clothes for their partner


That would be a lot easier to do correctly if women's sizes made any gosh darn sense, and if the same size between different brands and different stores was always the same actual size.


Any real man knows if your going to buy a woman clothing then you just get a damn gift certificate.

even if she really likes what you bought and it fits she will return it because thats how women roll.

Last time she tried to use it, she wedged it into the corner of the yard between the wood pile and fence, filled it to the brim with dirt, then couldn't move it due to the weight and the proximity to those objects. So she left it there overnight (in the rain), where it sank into the dirt, tipped over, and dumped a full load of mud for me to fix.  Mind you, this was "HER" gardening project that I had to promise not to get involved in... We often have long discussions about concepts such as "thinking ahead" and "paying attention to what the F your doing"

Regardless, she is an old fashioned wife; can cook, clean, organize, and manage our families way better than I can.  So we're happy with our roles and would never think of saying the other is useless.

It's not that I'm bad at it, I just don't care.

Picking home furnishings: does it suit the task? Is it reasonably priced? will it not look terrible in situ?  You've got yourself a sofa.

Picking her clothing: It's very nice that you are capable of buying me a pair of 36x31 trousers, perhaps you can give me you sizes and I can get something for you (note it will have to fit into the sofa criteria above)

Cooking: What you do is not called cooking, what you do is put chips and fish fingers into an oven (how many famous female chefs are there again?)

Buying a pram / carseat: You have my undivided attention, harness, able to fold up one handed (pram) takes the correct weight, no hunny don't worry too much about the price, no I don't care about whether it's orange or green.

My other half occasionally complains that I don't make the tea or coffee that often, which baffles me when I was single I very rarely drank hot drinks, she came into my life and started making them every hour and now I'm supposed to split this task?

Call me crazy, but I tend to want a partner who can fill in the gaps in life that I can't take care of.  I am, from what I'm told, a very good cook, I know how to iron, sew, go grocery shopping.  I have a decent fashion sense when it comes to clothing, i'm also quite good with tools and power tools.  What I can't do though, is coordinate a house, I tend to spend my money on cool toys for me (3D printer!), and I say really insensitive things at the WORST possible moment ('oh, your fiance broke up with you and said he never loved you?  Well, at least he's honest right?').  So I would need someone who would buy furniture for out house and make it all come together, teach me how to harness my impulse buys (or at least put up with it), and have a great smack upside the head whenever I get that look of 'he's going to say something stupid'.

Alas, I doubt I will find anybody who will fit that bill, and I honestly don't really mind all that much.  All the money I make at work gets to go to my alcohol/toy fund, I don't have someone to greet me at home telling me how many chores I have to do, and playing on my computer will have to wait yet another day.

2. Remembering anniversary 41 per cent

Meh.  Guilty as charged.  OTOH, women can't seem to remember to perform simple tasks like putting gasoline and the occasional quart of oil in their car, so it's a wash.

3. Dancing 33 per cent

Oh yah - useful life skill there, if I someday need Nancy Grace to show me a boob.

4. Ironing 31 per cent

See item 1.  We buy clothing that doesn't need to be ironed.

5. Cooking 30 per cent

Lies.  LIES, I say.

6. Domestic chores 30 per cent

Does sex count as a "domestic chore"?

7. Buying gifts 28 per cent

See item #1 again.

8. Multi-tasking 22 per cent

Laughable, considering women would be more like 88 percent.

9. Keeping up with fashion 22 per cent

Back to item #1 again.

10. Picking furniture 21 per cent

Men don't "pick" furniture - we build it, dammit.

Welcome to my world, minus the cat.  My GF either can't see or chooses to ignore her hair on the bathroom floor every single morning.  Given the choice between rinsing a dish and putting it into the dishwasher, or leaving it covered in cream cheese and jelly in the sink, she'll choose the latter 9 times out of 10.  Makeup dust on the counter in the bathroom?  She must think I like cleaning that up.

We've been home from vacation for 3 days, and she's still got an unpacked suitcase on the bedroom floor and another bag sitting exactly where she dropped it in the living room when we got home on Saturday night.

I don't know why I'm surprised, before she moved in with me, she shared an apartment with one of her GFs which was absolutely disgusting.  What a slob she is, the love of my life.

I'm quick on the dryer removal, but also have a fella that likes his creases. ::shrug::  Between that and a regular parade of suits, I let the local French cleaner take care of it.::shrug:: As for line drying, I live in Condo Land where you can buy your space but still not own it. We're not allowed anything as gauche as a clothes line.

And get the artistic/tech relationship. Works a lot like that here too, but with weird crossovers.

I live with my GF. Before we started dating, I only needed to clean my bathroom every couple of weeks, maybe three or more if I traveled for work. After we starting dating it was a weekly occurrence, if not tackled every few days. Now that we live together, it's every few days without fail. I acknowledge being messier than her in most things (ie I'll let folded clothes sit in the hamper for a few days until I put them away) but she will not acknowledge that the bathroom ever gets messy. She says it doesn't count and we both use it. Well I don't use makeup and my hair isn't longer than my forearm, so there are noticeably few suspects in that department.

It's really not a big deal at all, just amusing to see the mental gymnastics turn into an outright denial.

According to the research, men are also pretty useless at choosing home fixtures and furnishings and cooking anything complicated.


Men can also be relied upon to buy the wrong sized clothes for their partner and to get drunk at family functions, the survey found.


Men are also pretty useless at buying gifts in general, however, they can still do DIY, though not always successfully as almost half (46 per cent) admit they have hurt themselves while doing so.

I am learning to hunt, fish, and play poker (Texas hold 'em). I told him that for his bachelor party at the strip club my only rule was do not go to jail. .other than that, have fun. Hell, I do not care if he looks at women. I do not care where he gets hungry, as long as he eats at home.
All we ask of each other is to be faithful and honest.

I will say though, if you have worked a 10 hour day and come home to someone else's dirty dishes in the sink and see them on the couch, it's irritating, no matter which gender.

moefuggenbrew: Remembering to leave the seat up


Oh God was this ever an issue.
She'd get pissed if I left the seat up. Especially if she fell in, since she never bothered to look.

"Why are you so upset? It's not my fault you plopped your ass into the toilet. You should have looked. I do every time I sit down. And if I have to lift the seat, I don't get upset. I just lift the seat. Furthermore, you have gravity on your side. Whereas I actualy have to lift the seat, all you have to do is give a little push *pushes seat, seat thumps down* and BAM! your seat is down. Most of the work is done for you."

Turns out another skill women lack is being impressed by logical facts presented in an arguement.

Farkers, I am the silverback gorilla you should one day aspire to be. Farkettes, my apologies, I'm taken. Here are my stats:

- 41 years old
- 6'4", 245lbs, 38-inch waist
- Still have all my original teeth and most of my head hair, the latter running to salt and pepper much like George Clooney's
- Got my money right
- Average five loads of dishes and three loads of laundry per week
- Have lots of awesome tools and know how to use them around the house (if you know what I mean, and I think you do)
- Can drive non-stop for 12 hours and don't mind asking for directions
- Coach my son's soccer team
- Clean all the bathrooms in our house because nobody else knows how to do it right
- Teach a free self-defense class for bullied teens in our community (a majority of them being LGTBQ)
- My family is all in Hawai'i, so visiting the in-laws is never a chore

Obviously, two can play at this game:

Top 10 skills women lack

1. Understanding that the world doesn't revolve around them.
2. Having interesting personalities.
3. Having interesting hobbies.
4. Making sense.
5. Controlling their emotions.
6. Having in-depth knowledge of anything important in the world: Politics, Economics, History, Global Affairs. etc.
7. Understanding there are more important things in the world than clothes and fashion.
8. Either way, the DVD player does not take a PhD to operate, and you should be able to figure it out yourself.
9. Needing help with a friggin' spider, let alone staying calm in any sort of actual crisis.
10. Understanding that they are half of the relationship too, and men do not exist just to do things for them.

1.Buying clothes for partner 52 per cent


If you weren't so neurotic about keeping your size a secret... from someone who has expressed that he loves you while you were that size... we'd be better at it.


2. Remembering anniversary 41 per cent


Sorry ladies, commemorating anniversaries means buying you shiat like jewelry that has no value beyond what you pay for it. Tough to get excited about that.


3. Dancing 33 per cent


Stop dating meat heads who are too cool to learn to dance.


4. Ironing 31 per cent


Stop dating mama's boys.


5. Cooking 30 per cent


Ditto


6. Domestic chores 30 per cent


Don't believe the hype.We do those badly so you will tell us to stop doing them.


7. Buying gifts 28 per cent


We buy practical gifts for others and things we can both enjoy for you.


8. Multi-tasking 22 per cent


Bullshiat corporate doublespeak word that literally means nothing.


9. Keeping up with fashion 22 per cent


Because WHO THE HELL CARES.Just know that we consider it a defect in you if you spend too much time on this.


10. Picking furniture 21 per cent


Try to remember that we think your taste in furniture is as bad as you think ours is.

"According to the research, men are also pretty useless at cooking anything complicated."

If that's true then why are pretty much all good chefs men?

"Men can also be relied upon to buy the wrong sized clothes for their partner."

Because they have 500 different sizes for clothing. You have Misses sizes, junior sizes, women's sizes, plus sizes, full figure sizes, petite sizes, half sizes and a dozen more. Every single one of those come numbered from 00 to 40 as well as XXXS to XXXL. Hell women can't even figure it out because they have to try on every single thing before they buy it. Men have three sizes, S, M & L and we don't give a shiat if something makes our ass look fat as long as it's comfortable.

"Men are also pretty useless at buying gifts in general"

Because a woman has her mind made up what she want's for xmas/b-day/anniversary 6 months before hand and if you don't get her that exact item she gets mad because you're not a farking mind reader. Something for you ladies to keep in mind, you suck at buying us gifts too. We treat gifts from you like we do the ones from our kids, no mater how dumb, ugly or ridiculous it is, we smile and act like it's just what we wanted because we don't want to hurt your feelings.

Must have been talking to the wrong women. I discovered over the weekend I am a master bra shopper. Had to help the roomate find a couple of 38DD bras, you women make everything so damn hard! If men had bras the sizing would be way easier. Well I found her two and she says they are the best bras ever. Score one for me!

Researchers have found the happiest couples have territories that do not intermingle. A couple where one is responsible for an area (the car/the lawn/the kitchen/the laundry room) that is completely different than the other generally have longer marriages and consider themselves happier overall. Equally sharing the same job brings disharmony usually because at some point it appears that it is not done at the same level as the other person could do it. When areas of responsibility are split, people can generate enough mental distance from that area not to find it too annoying.

Seriously. Every relationship I've been in, chores were mostly shared. It was never an issue. This "research" sounds dubious at best, especially considering every relationship is different, and what works for one person doesn't always work for the next.

Your use of lmgtfy is telling. Normally the one making the assertion is expected to you know..present evidence supporting that assertion. Anyway, I figured I'd highlight some quotes from one of the articles about it.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/9572187/Couples-who -s hare-the-housework-are-more-likely-to-divorce-study-finds.html

Dr Frank Furedi, Sociology professor at the University of Canterbury, said the study made sense as chore sharing took place more among couples from middle class professional backgrounds, where divorce rates are known to be high.
"These people are extremely sensitive to making sure everything is formal, laid out and contractual. That does make for a fairly fraught relationship," he told the Daily Telegraph.
"The more you organise your relationship, the more you work out diaries and schedules, the more it becomes a business relationship than an intimate, loving spontaneous one.


As in maybe it has to do with the structure of the entire relationship, not just sharing chores.

"That tends to encourage a conflict of interest rather than finding harmonious resolutions." He said while the survey applied to Norway, he was confident the results would be the same in the UK.
"In a good relationship people simply don't know who does what and don't particularly care. "Unless marriage is a relationship above anything else, then whenever there are tensions or contradictions things come to a head. You have less capacity to forgive and absorb the bad stuff."


Note the bolded part.

The survey appeared to contradict another recent one across seven countries including Britain that found that men who shouldered a bigger share of domestic responsibilities had a better sense of wellbeing and enjoyed a better work-life balance.

Hmm..almost as if..there's no clear consensus, because its a case-by-case basis and broad generalizations generally don't work?


Anyway, here's a more telling article.

http://www.theatlanticwire.com/global/2012/10/researcher-there-no-ca us al-relationship-between-sharing-housework-and-divorce/57458/


A very telling quotation?

Also in that piece, I mentioned that I'd gotten in touch with the lead author on the study, Thomas Hansen, to find out more. He responded over the weekend to some questions, and sent along the study itself, most of which is in Norwegian (the English summary begins on page 223). Hansen told us, as for the media-presumed causality between household chore sharing and divorce rates, "I primarily think that there is no causal relationship," and instead says that people have adopted more modern perspectives "in terms of household division as well as in their views on marriage and divorce (among other things)."

So even the researcher of the study you're talking about disagrees with your conclusion. Care to try again?

Well, I clicked your link, and after looking through junk-science 'we do not know what causation, correlation, or data drawn from  frickin' Norway means, so OH NOES PANIC!!111!' articles, I found this. It's not a cause of divorce. It's a sign that the relationship is in a younger generation and the women are more financially stable, so they're more likely to break up when needed as opposed to older\less financially stable couples, where they 'stick it out'.

So, uh...no.

This is still slightly location dependent.  My 103 lb wife is not going to cut and split 6 - 8 cords of firewood a year, or even half that, with a 14 lb chainsaw and an 8 lb splitting maul.  Things I'm better at I do exclusively.  The rest we split.

I do recognize that most people don't live out in the boonies though.

I can repair, replace or install anything in a house. I can also do all plumbing, wiring and well as painting, Drywall and carpet, tile and hardwood flooring. I also can cook anything aside from seafood since I do not eat it nor can stand the smell of it and I even create my own recipes. I am also great at landscaping and have a very green thumb when it comes to plants and gardening. I also know how to do laundry and iron. I can repair/replace most items on vehicles, prepare taxes and balance checkbooks. I am able to have an informed conversation on almost any subject though my knowledge is limited in sports, comedies and reality TV. I can also make a woman orgasm in less than two minutes through oral sex and I am able to have intercourse daily multiple times with little or no pause after ejaculation.

Hope you change the oil in your car every second time, mow the lawn every second week, shovel half the driveway, rake half the leaves, fix every second plumbing problem, etc

I get where you're comming from but I've found a lot of time women think we're just playing when we're out bashing our knuckles fixing/maintaining something so we don't have to spend another $1000 we don't have on something. IE in response to the back breaking work of processing firewood ("There's this wonderful invention called a 'heater'...:p" - yeah I have, and we can afford to run a bunch for a month and still be cold, while for the same money I can heat our house the whole winter and be warm)

I hate cars. My girlfriend's father works for Mercedes, and therefore has been around cars her whole life. She knows waaay more about them than I do. She never bashes her knuckles, so I'm guessing she's better at fixing cars than you. So...your argument is what, exactly?

PsiChick: So because you fix one or two things a year you get a free pass on all other housework? Is that what you're trying to say?


I like that you even totally disregarded the part where he said they split things equally unless one party is the obvious choice because they do it better.

Also he's talking about splitting enough wood to heat a house for months.  I can tell you have at best a passing acquaintance with using your body to do anything even remotely difficult (I peg you as someone who gets out of breath climbing the stairs, but hey uhhhh elevators have you heard of them teee heee) as you think the effort required to do that is apparently equivalent to the regular household tasks that he does.

And sorry to disappoint you, but if that much wood needed to be split, I would split the damn wood. I don't  like doing heavy physical labor, but that doesn't mean I'm some lardass who can't handle it. Especially since I've been helping my parents under duress with various yard renovations since I was a kid.

Alright well that's a pretty extrordinary conclusion based on what he wrote but I'll let you have it if you show your work.

Mose: PsiChick:
Here in the land of reality, neither men nor women need to go out and hunt the sabertooth tiger, so most of us value, in either gender, a partner who can share basic chores, since the chores for men and women are going to be  exactly the same unless you want to go the housewife\breadwinner route.

Seriously. I don't care if you have a penis, if I'm out working and you're out working, we're dividing dishes in half.

This is still slightly location dependent.  My 103 lb wife is not going to cut and split 6 - 8 cords of firewood a year, or even half that, with a 14 lb chainsaw and an 8 lb splitting maul.  Things I'm better at I do exclusively.  The rest we split.

I do recognize that most people don't live out in the boonies though.

I find men in general to be as useful as women. I guess it depends on what we're talking about.

Helping me think of something to get someone for a baby gift, most men probably would not be helpful.
Helping me change a tire, most women, not helpful.

Hope you change the oil in your car every second time, mow the lawn every second week, shovel half the driveway, rake half the leaves, fix every second plumbing problem, etc

I get where you're comming from but I've found a lot of time women think we're just playing when we're out bashing our knuckles fixing/maintaining something so we don't have to spend another $1000 we don't have on something. IE in response to the back breaking work of processing firewood ("There's this wonderful invention called a 'heater'...:p" - yeah I have, and we can afford to run a bunch for a month and still be cold, while for the same money I can heat our house the whole winter and be warm)

May partner gets it, I just hope you do.

I hate cars. My girlfriend's father works for Mercedes, and therefore has been around cars her whole life. She knows waaay more about them than I do. She never bashes her knuckles, so I'm guessing she's better at fixing cars than you. So...your argument is what, exactly?


that you'd better be doing the house work while she's working on the car, and better not be demanding she help with the housework

I was just thing about reading stories about how men are not able to do the items women are considered to do and how simple minded that belief is. Many men remain single far into their adult lives and need to perform tasks women are thought to take care of.

not at all

mowing the lawn is a lot more brutal that sweeping the floors, and it's a weekly task, so is shovelling the walk. Maintaining a house, to retain it's value is a constant chore. Women like to spout off about how the men should be sharing in the chores they do while ignoring the labour the men do because they think it's considered play time.

cut, split and stack 4 cords of wood, and then tell me it's only a one time task that should not get due consideration.

50-50 is never equal.

It didn't matter how we split the chores, I always had to do more because the ex dawdled with hers. Of course because I was done with mine it wasn't "equal." I could take 30 minutes to clean the bathroom top to bottom but she spent an easy 4 hours in there. Because she wasted more time on it, she was doing "more work," and in her mind I needed to do more to be "fair."

The goal posts will continue to move and we will never reach even a draw. If you point out the clear error in their ways, you're in the wrong.

I've noticed women are pretty good at diminishing your accomplishments and claim they could do the very same yet fail time and again to prove such an assertion.

ReverendJynxed: I could take 30 minutes to clean the bathroom top to bottom but she spent an easy 4 hours in there.


My ex took forever to grocery shop.  I could be in and out in 30 minutes.  She took a minimum of 90 minutes.  Every single farking time she would stand in the aisle comparing the ingredients in two brands.  Then she would buy the same one she bought last week, and every farking week before.  And next week she'll compare them again.  Multiply that by a few dozen grocery items and you have a huge time sink.

I go in, I get the brand I got the last time unless there's a reason to do otherwise (not happy with the quality, other brand is on sale).

TuteTibiImperes: FTFA:
Men can also be relied upon to buy the wrong sized clothes for their partner


That would be a lot easier to do correctly if women's sizes made any gosh darn sense, and if the same size between different brands and different stores was always the same actual size.


Let me help with this (from a man with three older sisters who were all either cheerleaders or pagent winners who has successfully bought clothes for his wife -and when I was single for girlfriends I was dating).

1. Get her measurements (not what size she says she is -this is meaningless for various reasons.. different manufacturers, etc.).
2. Find her favorite store online.
3. You won't find a dress that *exactly* fits her measurements unless you are really lucky. Get that out of your head early, and you'll be fine. What you will find is a dress that fits her measurements *proportionally*...
4. Say you start with 36-24-36, and find a dress that is 38-26-38... that *will* fit and will look good on her.
5. Say you start with 36-24-36, and find a dress that is 36-30-38... that *will not* fit right and will look awful on her.
6. Tend at least one inch up and you can account for water weight, and sucking in (which women do when you take their measurements), but typically don't go more than 2 inches in *any* direction.

It's that simple. Seriously.

I bought my wife several dresses early on as we had a few formal occasions to go to, and bought them online (sight unseen). Every single one of them fit her beautifully.

In fact, she asked me how I did it so well, because she's never been able to find clothes that fit her right.

That's what a tailor would do to sew her a dress, all you have to do is look for something online that she would like that fits her proportionally.

Do you clean the kitchen once a week? Scrub every single counter, clean all the little corners, and scrub out the stove? I do that. I don't biatch that I shouldn't have to do dishes because I do--in fact, I consider those weekly chores  part of life, and go on with other chores without worrying about it.

Thing is, there are weekly chores that are  traditionally women's work, and they're just as hard (yes, cleaning for four hours is certainly good exercise, especially if you're working on the ceiling or some hidden crack). And women don't claim they should be excused from other chores because they're doing it. So either one partner does both weekly chores  and daily ones, or both do. No two ways around it.

Oh bullshiat no they aren't.  You put the dishes in the dishwasher, turn it on, and wipe the counter off and run the vacuum.  If you do everything right its low impact, low effort, and only takes an hour and a half.  There are no aching backs or dusting related injuries.  I did all that last night when I got home because I was feeling pretty jazzed up at the end of my workday, and it'll keep our apartment nice for the next 5 days (or forever if we could just stop making messes and then convincing ourselves we were too tired to fix them.

Oh bullshiat no they aren't.  You put the dishes in the dishwasher, turn it on, and wipe the counter off and run the vacuum.  If you do everything right its low impact, low effort, and only takes an hour and a half.  There are no aching backs or dusting related injuries.  I did all that last night when I got home because I was feeling pretty jazzed up at the end of my workday, and it'll keep our apartment nice for the next 5 days (or forever if we could just stop making messes and then convincing ourselves we were too tired to fix them.


So you have a tiny apartment and no kids, right? Yeah, I guess that'd be the case there...

/I keep forgetting not everyone has six people in the house.

Farkers, I am the silverback gorilla you should one day aspire to be. Farkettes, my apologies, I'm taken. Here are my stats:

- 41 years old
- 6'4", 245lbs, 38-inch waist
- Still have all my original teeth and most of my head hair, the latter running to salt and pepper much like George Clooney's
- Got my money right
- Average five loads of dishes and three loads of laundry per week
- Have lots of awesome tools and know how to use them around the house (if you know what I mean, and I think you do)
- Can drive non-stop for 12 hours and don't mind asking for directions
- Coach my son's soccer team
- Clean all the bathrooms in our house because nobody else knows how to do it right
- Teach a free self-defense class for bullied teens in our community (a majority of them being LGTBQ)
- My family is all in Hawai'i, so visiting the in-laws is never a chore

Cool story bro.

PsiChick: So you have a tiny apartment and no kids, right? Yeah, I guess that'd be the case there...


1500 square feet, no kids.  My wife leaves her embroidery stuff everywhere though.  The fact remains that it just DOESN'T take the much effort to pick up a room.  Pick up, put away, wipe surfaces, vacuum if necessary (though this can be a once a week if not once every two week part of the process).  Do the dishes every night.  Do the laundry every time you have a load ready.  Take out the garbage when its full.

Its not like you hand-wash the dishes or the clothes, the actual work involved in doing those tasks is miniscule, so you're left with pick up, put away, wipe, and vacuum, which usually translates to only pickup, put away, and wipe.  And MOST of that can be done while you watch TV and talk with your spouse/gf/bf/whatever.

You just don't have to do a lot of work to keep a house nice if you settle in and actually buckle down and work when you're supposed to be working.  Period.

Well, I live in a house with six people, and hand-washing dishes is actually part of the work when that's the case, along with moving quite a lot of stuff around to clean little corners. So just you wait until you reproduce...:p

When it's down to one fork and you've both done an equal amount of dishes, sharing that last one is hard because the pronged end has more surface area than the handle end so you cant just draw the line across the middle of the length of the fork.

We used a water displacement test to determine the actual half-way point on our forks so neither of us has to know we aren't equal. We didn't re-test and measure so it's probably off by a couple mm but when you're in a loving relationship those kind of details don't really seem to matter  :)

PsiChick:
Do you clean the kitchen once a week? Scrub every single counter, clean all the little corners, and scrub out the stove? I do that. I don't biatch that I shouldn't have to do dishes because I do--in fact, I consider those weekly chores  part of life, and go on with other chores without worrying about it.

...


HAHAHAHA

you obviously have no concept of what physical requirements are to fufill traditional men's chores vs womens.

You're speaking to a man who's active duty, trust me, I know how to clean. Probably better than you. I've spent hundreds of hours with a tooth brush making a condemned building that was vacated for years look new. I was single for a decade and kept a spotless apartment and house. I'll still prefer cleaning my house to busting rusted bolts, splitting wood, moving sheets of drywall, curled up under a kitchen sink with the toe kick eating my spine.

you have no clue and the gigantic chip on your shoulder makes you blind to my point. If your partner is doing the traditional male jobs that keep your house from falling in around your ears, you shouldn't be complaining that they aren't helping at that time with the inside chores.

At my house, I do the dishes the majority of the time, we share the weekend chores, I help as needed. but you won't hear my partner biatch and moan about how I'm not helping with the laundry while I'm laying on the couch after wrecking myself performing some other chore.

I think you're blathering on like this because I did catch you forgetting about all the traditional man chores and you don't want to admit it.

Again, my point stands, share the chores - All of them, inside the house or not,traditional men's chores are not playtime and that labour counts towards housework.

I bring home the paycheck. My wife keeps the house clean and food cooked.

I'm not saying her work isn't tough, but she isn't going to make what I make cleaning houses and cooking food.
