Turning off the TV when Dear Leader comes on the tube.

Make up a checklist on your computer and hand it to her and tell her to check them off when she is done.

Hope she isn't high priced then. Of course if she can't figure out a written list, she wouldn't know if you paid her the right amount. :)

I certainly agree with you. I have spent more time trying to stop it than I have reading it. Just a recycle bucket filler.

You know, except for having to wear that little French maid's uniform . . . I don't really have one. Well, except for mopping the floors, cleaning the bathrooms and scooping the litterbox. Okay, I lied. I hate it all. I do like cleaning out the liquor cabinet though.

Good morning fluxie! Looking back over your comment history I see 674 comments, mostly harassing other people! According to the "Terms of Service", nowhere does it state stupid comments will not be tolerated. Harassment on the other hand . . . Well let's put it this way. I have a history too. We'll see who gets TOSsed first. Tah, tah for now, must be on my way!

And probably the ammo box too.

About the only thing worse than washing the cat would be 'expressing' the dog's anal glands. I mean seriously folks, who makes this shtuff up? Anybody ever tells me I HAVE to do that, I'll just say "Yup, all taken care of." RoeDy don't go there . . . Kinda reminds me of the old joke about the fisherman who got snakebit in the nether region. When the doctor told his fishing partner over the phone how to get the poison out he turned to his friend and said "You're gonna die!"

What DIST said. No one reads those; they're a waste of advertisers money and paper. My suggestion is throw them in the parking lot of the advertisors and let them deal with them.

They end up in the sewers in my neighborhood since some people think proper disposal is throwing them in the street.

Hate cleaning that stupid jetted tub, which I never use, and the shower. I'll take a good ol' fashioned claw foot soaking tub over a jetted tub anyday.

Cleaning out the lemurs' compound after they've had a three-day tequila binge.

Clubs' membership requirements are constitutionally protected, under freedom of association. There are many clubs that don't allow men to join, such as all the sororities at universities.

Cleaning out the pee and poo bucket. Got tired of $48.53 monthly water bills from the city. Now I go down to BWW and grab up all of their wetnaps to clean myself with and use the bucket for everything else. STill getting bills that are around $30

Yes, they charge you for having the meter on your property even if the house has been empty for years.

"dogs enjoy cleaning out the litter box"

Tell me boutit! If we didn't keep a chair in front of it the dog would have it cleaned out . . . Hey! That may be one less chore I have to do from now on!.

Cleaning the dead mice from behind the stove. I dont understand why there are so many. I think they like to go back there to die because its warm.

Is old Bob (Dole) Dylan not playing Farmaid in MO this summer?

Generally I like cleaning. Even terlets are easy with the proper tools.

I detest washing Tupperware. Even worst is the free Tupperware like containers. Never seem spotless, always a little residue.

Greasy little buggers! Outlaw them!

Housework, if done properly, can kill you.

Just for the record, gas is $3.31 in Topeka today . . .

Cleaning the rain gage on my weather station. It's 30' up. Got it done this morning before it hit. 0.51" so far.

Speaking of rain, I see fearless leader has been in Atchison and Leavenworth. He's unhappy that the river is so high and he wants to control it.

I thought Regina made vacuum cleaners?

It would have to be cleaning the oven. Nobody seems to care how much stuff drips on to the bottom of the oven...until pre-heating sets off the smoke alarms.I've even tried lining the bottom with foil, so it can be removed easily. They can't stand dirty foil, but won't wipe up the floor of the oven. SMDH

Cleaning under the fridge. Don't have to do it very often, thankfully. Never can figure out how that gross mix of goo and crumbs gets ALL the way under the fridge.

I hate replacing the Kitchen vinyl floor every 20 years.
