Results of our National Cleaning Survey – How Dirty is Your Partner?
Here is what some of our respondents had to say…
He is a lazy pig who expects me to do everything cos that’s what Mummy did. If he were to lift a finger to help, I’d be checking his temperature to make sure he was feeling alright. I teach our son how to do chores as I refuse to raise a lazy, chauvinistic piglet!
As with most men he leaves it all to me. He pretends he ‘can’t’ clean. Boo bloody hoo! I’ve even taught him step by step how to clean the loo, but he seems to have permanent amnesia afterwards!
Cleaning has never been a contentious issue in our house because on the rare occasion he does something, he does such a poor job that I have to do it again, so what’s the point? It is quicker to do it myself.
Our relationship will be ending with the issues caused by his lack of effort being one of the main reasons.
In general marriage would be a lot happier if men helped women more around the house. It should be a team effort with the mutual goal of enjoying spending time in a clean and tidy house and not be worried about unexpected guests turning up.
When did ‘because I hate cleaning’ become an excuse for not doing it and leaving it for your wife?
He’s happy to live like a pig in the proverbial!
It annoys me that the majority of cleaning still seems to be done by females. Males generally just don’t seem to see it. Gggrrrrr!
I like the bathroom clean. Who wants to bath in someone else’s’ DNA?
Not too worried which room is the cleanest, the Missus does it all, so its never dirty!
