    Default Least favorite household Chore

    Like the name suggests, what do you end up putting off at home as long as possible simply because you hate doing it.

    For me I hate dishes. I love to cook for others, but hate the clean up at the end. Being the youngest sibling dishes was always tossed on me as a kid, and hated it.

    How about you EOFF?

    I don't mind doing dishes but really dirty pots and pans are pretty gross, especially if there's a lot of food left, stuck on. I try to avoid them or get Mr. Carny to do those ones.

    Otherwise? I don't mind other chores. Cleaning the house can be very fun but I do need to be in the mood for it.

    I don't mind the dishes as long as the sink isn't full of food and old cold slimy water. I just listen to the radio and do them. I hate vacuuming though. I just hate the the noise so much.

    All goblin rituals serve a dual purpose as fertility rites, even the destructive ones. Especially the destructive ones.

    I actually like doing the dishes. I find a lot of satisfaction in cleaning up a mess.

    Sweeping would probably be my least favorite. There's a lot of area that needs to be swept at my house, so it always takes a long time.

    I can do everything around the house with relative ease. Though I tend to only do things with a pair of headphones on. If I can listen to a podcast while I load the dishwasher time goes by faster.

    The only thing that's kind of a pain is changing bedsheets because my bed is pushed against a wall. I either have to pull the mattress out or lay awkwardly across my bed in an attempt to wrap the sheet around the farthest corner.

    I don't mind dishes at all! Ironing on the other hand is the smurfing worst thing ever and I hate it.

    Putting stuff away, for some reason. I don't mind doing dishes but I hate putting the dishes away and if the dish dryer is full, it makes me dread washing the dishes because I have to put the other dishes away.

    Same with laundry. No problem doing it, hate folding it and putting it away.

    Doing the dishes. All that food bits going everywhere in the waters is just, ugh, no thank you.

    Also hate washing dishes.

    Love organizing and putting things away.

    Love scrubbing the hell out of things.

    Hate to clean the bathtub because I can't reach all the corners from the outside so I have to stand inside and then I stood in my previously cleaned spot on accident argh.

    Dislike cleaning out the fridge.

    Signature by rubah. I think.

    Yup. This.

    The only thing I will ever iron is a shirt if I'm going somewhere nice. Also, people who iron things like bedsheets and socks are the craziest people on the smurfing planet.

    Also, if you're doing the dishes and you have bits of food in the water then you're doing it wrong. Any leftover food bits on plates/pans/cutlery should be scraped into the bin. Any person who puts their plate into the sink with food still on them should be shot.

    I hate doing the dishes because it feels tedious. But I love doing laundry because mmmmm warm clean clothes that smell fresh and then I get to fold them all.

    Dishes and Laundry. I don't care about taking out trash or vacuuming or whatever but dishes are the worst second only by laundry.
