When their are dishes in the sink...and your hubby's home...

Do you ask him to do the dishes...or do you find it's just much easier to get them done yourself without having to nag him to clean the dishes over and over?

  • When there are dishes in the sink, and husband is home............we usually do them together. That is the way it has been for 31 years.

  • I'm a SAHM,I see all inside work as mine. He does mowing and garbage. Maybe if I got hurt and couldn't stand I'd ask him......

  • I wouldn't ask him to do the dishes, that's my job. Of course they also wouldn't be sitting in the sink because it takes about 5 seconds more just to put them in the dishwasher but before we had the dishwasher I'd just do them as I used them.

  • My hubby will just get up and wash all the dishes in the sink!! He always does all the dishes on the weekend and it's his choice! I am pretty lucky!

  • Now that he's home on comp, I get annoyed when I empty the sink and then get home and it's full again. I will make a comment about how I left the sink empty and he tells me he will take care of it. Sometimes he does, other times I get annoyed and start doing it myself. On occasion he will stop me and do it. All around he pisses me off when it comes to housework.

  • I try to stop my dh from doing the dishes whenever I catch him attempting to help. He's just not good at it. lol

  • I don't usually nag. I just ask him, "hey, you wanna do dishes tonight?" and when he says yes, I just let it go. They'll be done before I wake up the next morning. :-)

  • I ALWAYS ask him to do the dishes, I ALWAYS end up doing them. Drives me nuts. He does a wonderful job of cleaning if we are expecting company. But if it's just us, it's always on me

  • I end up finishing everything because he takes so damned long to clean the kitchen. God, how many breaks do you have to take anyway? You're just putting the damned dishes in the dishwasher. Sorry, the man just takes forever to clean anything.
