OMG! Picking the weeds out of the rocks in our front/back and side yard!!!! That is the worst! lol. First of all, I hate doing chores that the neighbors can watch! *I know, I'm paranoid :P* lol. But it's just no fun! And my mom is REALLY PICKY about it! lol.

lol yeah!! If I'm going to be forced to do some boring work around the house, I would really prefer to do something that I wouldn't have to worry about someone watching me. Keep me in doors! lol

hi sue! i also don't like washing and ironing clothes. its just so hard to do and i feel like i'm so tired after doing it. i used to wash my own clothes when i was still in college because i lived in a boarding house and it saves me a lot of cash when i do it on my own. i do it every week so it doesn't pile because when it piles up, i'd be so tired i would need the whole day to rest. ^__^;; now that i'm earning i just pay someone to do it for me.

I think it's ironing, I only usual have to iron my jeans and a few of my tops.The problem is I'm selling a lot of vintage clothes that usualy need ironing.So I've just gennerated more.Apart from that it's what seems to be the never ending chore or raking and getting rid of the leaves which are inches been in my back yard.

Hi sue, it’s nothing difficult and boring for me to bake cakes and biscuits but I dread most is to clean all the used dishes and to tidy the stove as well as to clean the kitchen floor. I would like to thank my husband and his elder sister for they are always willing to help me in doing this dreadful work almost every time I have finished the recipes or cooking. May be they really love the desserts or food I have prepared posting and take care.

Saviour-V teleports in... Right now, it's polishing wooden furniture. Mum gave the order about a few hours ago this morning. Just finished the last one (HOPEFULLY!). Yesterday, Mum wanted me to burn several branches she had chopped down a few days ago....but I wasn't really too fond of fire. My hands shook while I was holding the lighter. Fact is, ironically, I go to work every other day, JUST to avoid household chores. So, when Sundays and holidays roll in, I go "Oh, no, here comes trouble!" Hopefully, apart from cleaning toilets (another hated chore) today, I think today shouldn't be too bad. Saviour-V teleports out...

The things we hate the most are taking out the trash and scrubbing the bath tub. The trash is not so bad, but scrubbing that bath tub is a lot of work!!

yes i agree with you about the bath tub.scrubbing all that scum around the bath tub is such a chore and as soon as you clean it ,it has to be done again the next day.i don't mind having to put the trash out,i prefer that than many of the other household chores we have to do.cheers sue

Washing pots and pans and cleaning the bathrooms...I despise BOTH those chores..BUT since they must be done I do them ya know....Oh and cleaning the litter box..With 4 cats it needs to be done often and for some reason as soon as I'm about to clean it one of them without fail has a p00p...which of course drives me nuts and grosses me out LOL

Anything that begins with "H" I think Sue. Housework will do as a starter! (Ironing. I loathe ironing.) I'm off to Goodie's now that you've taken in her hubby. I'd hate for her to think that there's no one there to mess up for her!!

In our house, it has to be cleaning the bathroom. I hate cleaning the bathroom. It's probably the most used room so it gets dirty the fastest. I just try to get it over with quickly so I can move on. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

The dreaded chore for Wolfie is that horrible I word, and ends in ING and I wish RON was there to do it for me LOL! I can't iron for toffee! I seem to end up ironing creases IN to the clothes rather than ironing them OUT! I hate it and I will actually buy clothes you don't need to iron. When I wash clothes I hang them up straight away so they don't need ironing. The ironing board is kept hidden and I won't let him loose in fact I lock him away so he can't get out and haunt me! The other thing I hate is cleaning windows or glass, I seem to make them smeary and leave lines in them, nightmare!

I dread the washing of clothes... since i am not very good at it... i can never take any stains off... even if i hand wash the them... so my daughter's clothes have a lot of spots on them... even if they are only a few weeks old... i have long given up on ironing... so i just buy clothes that doesn't need to be ironed... just to save time...

I hate to iron. I am so picky about how my laundry is done just so I won't have to iron. And the worst part is that I hate wrinkled clothes, go figure. I wait until the garment has to be worn before I will iron it. I taught both of my boys to iron and wouldn't allow them to wear wrinkled clothes, so they had to do their own stuff. Sometimes I would even ask them to iron one of my things and they would with no problem.... I really hate it, can you tell LOL
