Questions with no answers

5 May 2011

I know it is a busy season for the other members of my family, what with AP exams to take, end of semester tests to write, and grading, but:

  • Why can’t individualized (by me) piles of stuff on the stairs be brought up to the owners’ rooms?
  • Why can’t dishwashers be emptied before leaving the house?
  • Why can’t rabbit litter boxes be refreshed on Wednesdays, *as is the mutually agreed upon schedule*?
  • Why are piles of clean laundry left to decorate the living room and dining room for days on end? (Didn’t you-all say your were “all out of clothes” just two days ago?)
  • Why would a person who insists that she wears jeans 3 or 4 times before putting them in the wash always give me 5 pairs of jeans *per week* to launder?
  • Why can’t anyone else think to refill the hand soap dispensers or extra toilet roll holders?
  • Why can’t people wash the blenders, saucepans, and skillets used in breakfast and snack production?
  • Why must there be the running of elephants up and down the stairs and across the living room?

    Could you come ask similar questions at my house?

    …. with questions 1 and 4, if you threatened to start throwing items away one by one and followed through on that, i’m pretty sure things would start to change pretty fast……

    I agree with Beth. And my teenagers did their own washing, or it didn’t get done. On loo rolls, the rule was, never let it run out, if you use the last piece then replace it. Of course, that meant that they managed never to use the very last piece, whereas I’d always replace it once there were three or four squares left. They are all more houseproud than I am now, funnily enough!

    When my brothers and I were teenagers, we did our own laundry. I actually didn’t mind doing it…and still don’t!
