No, not at all.


#42

I put my uniglo jacket in the washing machine even though it explicitly told me not to.

Fucked it tho didn’t i? All the feathers are stuck at the bottom.


#43

You should have been alright, ducks don’t die when they swim on a pond.


#44

not even that many years ago


#45

i fucking LOVE voting the same way as @aboynamedgoo. it immediately reinforces your position to have him onside


#46

What is stopping people getting a cleaner tho?


#47

Money? Lack of cleaners?

Not wanting to pick up your dirty underwear off the bathroom floor the days they come round?

answers are touch, move your fucking shits!


#51

agreed re: cleaning not meaning tidy up. if you can’t tidy up what the hell is wrong with you?


#52

How big is said property your making me think it is massive. Surely a cleaner should be good at finding stuff?


#53

actually, I think I’d rather hire a tidier than a cleaner. Cleaning’s fine: tidying is unbearable.


#54

ooo! all the books are on the bookshelf wrong! papers on the sofa! Cups in the corner!

not interested


#55

"wanted: tidier.

must remember where i left my keys.
put batteries back in the drawer
don’t throw out that plastic bit because i still don’t know what it’s for


#56

this is almost exactly right. Also: please rearrange the medicine drawer and work out a better place to store the pizza peel.

And: DON’T OPEN THAT CUPBOARD.

Don’t need one at the moment. Live in a 2 bed flat and it’s easy to keep clean. I’d personally feel a bit ashamed of myself if I couldn’t keep my own flat clean to be honest. This isn’t an injunction or an expectation for others to feel the same.

If circumstances changed and a) I got a massive house (haha) or b) me and my wife got more demanding jobs that required much longer hours then I’d consider it for sure.

One thing I am absolutely not doing is my own ironing. Dry cleaners round the corner can take care of all that.


#58

Just don’t iron. There’s literally no need


#59

i mean, there’s no “need” but you don’t half look silly in a super creased shirt


#60

Not at the moment. I wear a shirt under a jumper every day like the bog bloody standard middle management spod that I am. But if I got a job where wearing a suit or something smarter every day was necessary I am neither a) wearing an unironed shirt or b) ironing my shirts/trousers myself. I HATE it.
