"FORCING your wife to kneel down and scrub the house floor clean is a crime because it amounts to mistreatment, Italy's highest appeals court has ruled."
I wonder when the day would come when it would be illegal for any one member of a household to do more than half of the domestic chores.
I've realised that the "other half" in my relationship has a huge issue when it comes to cleaning. I'm talking about the Real Cleaning - Bathroom.. Toilets... Bunny's poo poo and his other bodily wastes. He just refuses to touch it. Therefore, cleaning it would be out of the question.
To be fair, he does have the garbage duty and does the vacuum for the apartment as well.
However, during the past month he has been on holidays (i.e. Free and bumming around at home). So I experimented in trying to get him to do some of the cleaning. As I'm not exactly a Tidy person myself, my level of threshold when it comes to the tolerence of being 'clean and tidy' is actually quite high.
So began the battle to see who has a higher tolerence threshold.
With me not doing anything with the hope that someone else will pick up the chores. While dropping Not-So-Subtle Hints along the way.
The result ?!
The carpet not being vacuumed for the whole month.
It appears that he has decided.. 'If I don't do my bit - he doesn't need to do his bit either'.
However, I'm not calling this a failed experiment yet. I think I can still hold out for a couple more weeks. Or atleast until a watermark rim starts appearing above the water level of the toilet bowl.
