Taking the bins out... nope, not doing it.

Millennials would rather employ a handy-man to hang a picture in their house than do it themselves. Maybe they know how to do it, but they don’t want to? We all have things around the house that we hate doing. I refuse to take the bins out - it’s a manky, cold job. I also hate unloading the dishwasher... it’s so tedious.

Here are some other jobs the listeners of Early Breakfast refuse to do:

 

 

  • “Morning Paula, I’d give most jobs a go. The problem I have is finishing them, much to the frustration of my wife!” - Joe in Wicklow

 

  • “My husband and I have a system...I clean the entire house, do all laundry and household chores...just as long as he does the dishes. I HATE dishes!”

 

  • “Hi Paula. It’s not that I refuse to do the hoovering but I’m not allowed to. The last time I hoovered, I didn’t know that there was no bag in it and I covered the whole house in dust.” - Alan

 

  • “Folding and putting away my clothes. I will put that off for days”

 

  • “I loathe cleaning the toilets. I don't clean them anymore; my wife cleans them now. When we married, we each picked a worst chore and never did it again!”

 

  • “Vacuuming the stairs. It makes me dizzy... at least that’s what I tell my husband, Paula!”

 

  • “Unloading the dishwasher… ugh!”

 

  • “Honestly, no household chore is as bad as my day job. I’ll do anything at home!”

 

  • “Paula. We have 4 kids. I will do anything around the house. Hoover. Wash floors. Dishes. Clean windows. But I point blank refuse to tidy the kids’ rooms. Allergic!”  Mark, Kerry

 

  • “Wait, people don’t like doing the dishes?! Washing dishes is soooo satisfying. Especially when you have a really dirty dish!”

 

  • “Dusting. I would wash a thousand dishes and vacuum a hundred carpets before dealing with that”

 

  • “Cleaning the oven. Nope!”

 

  • “Cleaning hair out of any drain. Thinking about it makes me want to puke.”

 

  • “The job I hate most at home is cleaning my teenage son’s bedroom cause you never know what you will find on the floor. Rotten!”

 

  • “Folding fitted sheets” (NOT shitted feets)

 

  • “Emptying the dishwasher. I will literally wash the dishes in the sink by hand rather than having to empty the dishwasher.”

 

  • “We have these weird pottery style cups and I won’t empty the cups from the dishwasher because I hate the feel of them in general but especially after being washed!”

 

  • “Matching socks, thank goodness I have a 6 year old who will do it for 1 euro!”
