I hate peeling the potatoes,I will cook pasta ,rice,jacket potatoes rather than peel potatoes so I get my husband to do it for me.It is strange I will prepare any other vegetables with out a thought and even up to six months ago I would happily do it without a second thought.Have you changed your ways for any reason or no reason at all.Now I like doing the ironing now thats the thing most people cannot stand doing,I used to hate hoovering the stairs even though my hoovers have always had the right tools to do it,now I love hoovering the stairs strange is it not,what about you.

I have never enjoyed peeling potatoes and will buy the baby new potatoes so I can pretty much leave most of the skin on it and cook it that way. I hate to put laundry away the washing part doesn't bother me its when I have to start hanging and folding and trying to get it all put away. When it was just me it didn't bother me but with four people there is a lot to put away and I have to go to each room and put it up instead of just one so by the time I am done I am more than tired of doing laundry.

I am with you on putting the laundry away,especially when you go to so much trouble to lay it in the draws so nicely and my kids just drag something out and shove the rest back,and the wardrobe is the same they drag something out and the rest falls on the wardrobe floor,I wonder what would happen if I gave them the clothes in that state.!

I only have one daughter, but when she was 10 I made her put her own laundry away. I'd separate it out from ours, but she had to hang it or put it in drawers. It was such a burden off my shoulders!

What a good girl she is ,my daughter was like that,my youngest son would never put it away and it would live on the floor or he would force it all in the same drawer he cannot understand what the fuss is.Thank you once again,x.

I dislike vacuuming and I dislike mowing the lawn and getting rid of weeds. Last year I got a tiller to help prepare garden soil, but the rains made the job a lot more work with the tiller. As far as my vacuum is concerned, it's a heavy old beast, but it does the job better than most newer models, so I keep it. I'm lucky to do vacuuming once every two weeks. I'd sooner sweep the carpet with a broom.

It is not so much a task that I dislike but an action. I hate disrespect in any form. Whether it is an employee to an employer or an employer to an employee, a child to a parent or a parent to a child, a citizen to a police officer or a police officer to a citizen. If people would all learn and practice respect for themselves and others most of the worlds problems could easily be handled.

I agree with you completely.Manners and a little thought for others costs nothing and gets you through life a lot better than all this fighting that goes on.Thanks for putting a different lean on the discussion.x

Any thing to do with laundry I don't mind.It gets up my nose when you lay everything in the drawers with great pride then you go back and find they have dragged what they want out and shoved the other stuff back in.Thanks for responding.x

I really dislike cleaning the bathroom. I can handle doing just about anything else regularly, but the bathroom I do not like doing. We have two, and we're a family of seven... so I have to do this disliked deed all the time. Blah.

since I am very lazy guy so for me every that disturb me and in my sleeping I dislike that LOL yeah there are lots of thing which I dislike but we have to adjust with them since we are an social animal , some thing which we dislike may be other like that for example I don't like serials specially family TV serials when I watch tv but my other family member like that so what would you do at that time you will have to adjest , similar in food case and I think in every case , so I think every human like some thing and dislike other but for other what you dislike can be like by other so even you dislike something that thing exist in fron of you with you and some times every time you so finally we have to face all that all time and its become habit finally to chase them thanks for sharing

I hate vacuuming and dusting. With 3 dogs, vacuuming is a daily chore. Dusting would be an hourly chore if I was that neat minded. Living in the country, dust is as constant as breathing. Since I don't want to spend all day dusting, we live with a certain amount!

well, in my case I hate frying food. Anything that involves frying. I'd rather wash tons of dishes, wash loads of clothes and bathing our dog. Hehehe, but I love to eat fried foods!!

every day life seems to be about the mundane and peeling potatoes and apples is right up there (i make my own apple sauce) as is ironing. i also hate wrestling with those metal hangers on wash day.

I Have OCD so I hate a lot of things I do. And Yes peeling potatoes is something I hate also. There's no easy way around it! Ihate mating socks, but I love laundry. I hate the fact that I can't touch metal doorknobs, cleaning habitually, and talking to much. Yes, a woman that hates talking. I am such a people person, but I can go on and on and on. I hate sweeping and mopping the floor. But, I do these things to keep what sanity I have left.
