One of these big arguments again. The big inequality of chores in our couple. My hub helps out. He really does. But it still is what it is; helping out. I'm the brain, I think abou what needs to be done, when and how frequently.
The hub didn't buy it. He said that he did at least 75% of all chores. So we started to write them down. Well, HE started. And once he was done, I wrote down all those that he'd forgotten or that he doesn't even think about.
So me, being on commute or at work for 55 hours a week, perform about 22 tasks. He, having no commute and being unemployed, performs 13.
As soon as this list was written down, some things happened:
- we stopped arguing, hell, we fell mute alltogether
- tears started to roll from my eyes
- my backpain was back
- I lost my voice
I'm a feminist joke.
