Good Friday morning to all active mylotters, how are you this last day of the working week? It is a man's work. I have just finished applying black paint on this wood and let it stand for 3 hours to dry it. Later I will paint in white the words ," DON'T THROW YOUR GARBAGE IN FRONT OF OUR GATE". There are many neighbours who throw their garbage in front of our gate. This is already a permanent problem here. Some are even from other places and they throw their trash riding on their tricycle. One was even caught by our neighbour VA, a hopeful to be reelected this local election on Sunday. My son is bathing our dogs. Besides I like to paint the wood. Do you work a household chore that is meant for the opposite sex,like hammering a nail if you are a woman, or sewing if you are a male?

Reminds me of our dilemma before we had our front yard renovated to be commercial space. Even today sometimes I see people throwing garbage. But not much compare before, not to mention they even PEE over here. People seems to have no respect. Don't trucks pick your trash there. You should have cctv over there.

our garbage is always collected every day at dawn, but there are some 'sutil at pasaway' neighbors who are so proud to throw their trash in the common place or area for collection.

@ridingbet I think you're right. We had best know how to do everything or it wouldn't get done. Thanks for the welcome back.

@RubyHawk i have learned to do a man's work since the father of my son was scrammed out of our lives. hahaha! that is why my son also greets me on father's day.

indeed, and if we hammer something, we find it fulfilling, right?

I can hammer a nail if needed, or drill a hole in the wall to hang something. I also like to pain the walls and the outdoors fence.

@ridingbet We are not allowed to touch anything electric, for this we are required to call a professional.

@LadyDuck the plugs that i fix are not anyway connected to the wall socket so i think i am free from having the electric shock.

we women should not feel so ladylike when we can do some things at home that normally men should do.

theres no such thing as gender defined work anymore. women wanted to be treated equally, so equality you got.

i agree with you. even women jobs are also done by men, like nursing profession which was often thought of to be a woman's job.

These are stereotypes that just need to be destroyed finally. My mom does more housework than my father ever did, she put up our walls, did the electricity. Nothing is a man or woman's job. Just get the job done.
