What percentage of housework are you doing these days?


#1

I’m counting cooking in that (but NOT anything like baking, to be clear, unless it’s specifically meant as a main meal).

Even split? Wild imbalance?

SSP probably just in case.

Wife thinks it’s 50/50 but she’s talking out of her arse.


#3

Wild imbalance, the only regular “chore” that I don’t do myself is loading the washing machine and frankly, I’d prefer it if I could do that as well.


#4

:smiley:!


#5

Given that according to the poll your missus loading the washing machine takes 10% of all housework time I think you need to take back control here.


#6

Well when I was only given 10% increments to choose from it was the closest one innit.


#7

yeah tbf it’s my bad i just couldn’t be arsed with 5’s


#8

It’s fine pal, only the biggest pedant would have any issues with it.


#9

So it still takes up > 5% of ALL domestic chore time???

This needs sorting. Stat.


#10

What needs sorting is your attitude in here, you’re already derailing a perfectly good thread with this picky nonsense.


#11

I’m way tidier and have a much lower tolerance of disorder. She’s more likely to take on big job like cleaning the oven though. What a team.


#12

I’m currently clocking in at 40% because work has gotten intense lately. But should be back to parity in a week or so


#13

Nice to know that we’re finally back to the good old days of DiS where no thread could last 3 posts without arguments breaking out :slight_smile:


#14

Oof!


#15

I’ve put 50%. I mean in reality who knows. It feels like 50% but neither of us really put in the time these days.


#16

Oh Theobald, dear, innocent Theobald, how we love you.


#17

Exact opposite of this. She’s a tidier, I’m a cleaner. She does more 10 minutes here and there, I do the big horrible jobs. Works out about even and we’re both fine with it (although we’re both also convinced we’re the ones doing the more worthwhile role, obvs)


#18

Mate, I just meant it was terrific timing that you got him to do it AGAIN just after you posted that.


#19

Ah Theodore, dear, kindly Theodore, how we love you.


#20

We probably both think we’re doing about 70%, which I think is analagous with any job share scenario.
