I hate dishes. You no sooner than get them done and someone comes along and piles them up again. Especially if you have a family.

I hate doing laudry! I really hate to fold the clothes after they come out of the dryer. I keep praying the buzzer on the dryer won't ding but it always does then there are clothes to fold and put away.

I agree with you here. It seems between my boyfriend and I we have a never-ending pile of laundry and our washer is in the basement, so we have to lug the clothes from our bedroom down all the stairs, then wash about 3-4 or more loads at a time, put them in the dryer, fold them and hang them or place them in the dresser. It's very time consuming and such a drag!!

I love laundry. I don't have several flights of stairs to go down either. I used to though and really wasn't much into it then.

I can do anything except the dishes and the laundry. Not that I am lazy. It's just that I am allergic to detergents. I get rashes when I use detergents. That is why I avoid these chores.

My grandma was like that. Broke out over everything, but she still had to do them. Of course, obviously her reaction was mild. I have a slight allergy to Dawn dish detergent.

Cleaning the bathroom is probable the worst chore for every one in out house. No one likes doing it. Clean the dishes comes in a close second. I have tried to train the kids that if they do it every day it will not be a nasty chore. But No! They let it set there untill the sink is full and starting to smell and then make hurking noices as they do it. Thats what they get for letting it back up.

Yeah, the bathroom is nasty too. Especially when you have a 5 year old that doesn't like to pay attention or likes to fidget. You made me laugh with the image of the hurking kids. lol.

Becky is the worse. She is such a drama queen. She also always has an inch attack when ever she is doing the dishes. It is funny. You would think that she is allergic to the dirty dishes. It is some kind of psychotic episode. Leave it to Becky to go crazy over a sink of dirty dishes. Mark

I don't like all the chores.I clean up my clothes when I am not happy.Just at unhappy time. The most I don't like is cleaning.It's so hard which would cause lumbago.

I have a boy and a girl, young, so I understand all that. I have a million clothes because Nana is 1 and you know they can't eat or drink without spilling on their clothes. My boy is one that will get his clothes wet washing his hands... And in the laundry they go.

I do not buy clothes I have to iron. That and as a stay at home mom, if I am wrinkled, that is far better than the food stains from little hands.

I am in charge of taking care of the dogs around the house. My least favorite chore would be cleaning up their messes. My second least favorite would be doing the dishes. I hate touching utensils that people have eaten from, or cups that people have drank from.

i hate hanging the clothes to dry after washing them. here in our place, we're not used to using a dryer machine, instead we hang all the clothes to dry. i hate doing it! after i washed all the clothes, i'll hang them one by one. it's very routinary and boring for me.

I have been known to do that. Line drying is such a pain, but it is also worth it. If you can overlook the buggies and the bird spots that is.

It would be... washing the dishes. I had done that for years and it spoiled my hands. Spoiled because I don't know the proper term for it. It made my hands raw of sort and they feel uncomfortable and close to an itch but not really an itch after I wash.

What did you use? Sounds like a reaction to it. Definately not right.

I don't enjoy housework but I am trying to make myself like it! I would say that I don't enjoy the general maintaining of picking up everything and making sure everything is in its place. I have four children and their places for things do not match mine! Then close after follows dishes, laundry and cleaning the windows!

I have that problem too. Especially when they insist the proper place is the middle of the floor.

I hate unloading the dishwasher. I don't mind loading it, running it, or doing things that don't fit by hand, but unloading it is torture for me. I also hate hanging shirts up. I don't mind putting them on the hangers, but there's something that just really bothers me about actually hanging them up. I'm a bit odd. :)

• United States

Uggh! I am with you there. I have a 5 year old boy that has wandering eyes and with that hand. Then there is the foundry grime from the hubby on the shower floor... shaving cream and hairs in the sink... Do they just not know this stuff is disgusting?

I do too. lol. I hate it mostly because I always end up with a pile of single socks. I think Al Bundy was right, the aliens take them out of the dryer for fuel. lol
