    Default What jobs do you hate doing?

    There are certain jobs in my house that I flatly refuse to do because I hate them so much!

    * Cleaning the shower
    * Cleaning the oven
    * Gardening
    * Cleaning the windows

    Lucky enough for me, these are all jobs my DH excels at so we make a good team!

    What jobs are on your "Most Hated" list?

    Mostly what you have listed. And general dusting. Call me crazy, but I LOVE doing dishes.

    Ironing. I hate it.

    I'd rather clean toilets for a living.

    cleaning bathrooms/wet areas (I'll do the toilet if I have to though)

    vacuuming/sweeping - I suck at it

    dusting - just cbf really

    ironing - never learned to do it properly. luckily dh wears tshirts and not business shirts to work 😂

    -Bathrooms, especially the shower. They don't get done as often as they should. Sometimes I do it, sometimes the kids.
    -Mopping the kitchen floor. The kids do that now.
    -Folding clothes. The kids do their own now.
    -Ironing. Nothing gets ironed.
    -Making the top bunk bed. Oh how I hate it. I'm trying to teach DS to do it but it's too hard for me, let alone him, so I just do most of it.

    Folding and putting away clothes. I hate (hate, hate!) it and leave the basket pile up until DS calls it a mountain and I eventually fold and put it away.
    All of DH work clothes get dry cleaned

    I hate mopping the floor so much. Doesn't help that we have a massive open plan lounge area with high gloss wooden floors. It has big sliding doors that let lots of light in that shines up anything thats not done right. I seriously want to hire a cleaned but all they need to do is mop my floor once a week

    Cleaning the oven - therefore rarely happens

    Windows - they are currently appalling

    Not in the house but I also despise grocery shopping!!!!
