  • Yes. He needs to take the trash out. I vacuum and cook, he does dishes only occasionally but he takes the trash out and mows the lawn.

  • Have you? Asked I mean. As women we forget men don't think like we do. They can't read our mind and they sure don't want to try. Just say "Honey, could you grab take the trash out please" If he says NO...then you have plenty to complain about. Telling them what you want straight out is what they want in the first place.

  • My children are old enough now, they have that chore. But before, yes, my hub did take the trash out, most of the time. Not because I asked or demanded, but that's the way he was raised.

    At least my MIL did that right ;)

  • my husband I have to ask to take the trash out of the garbage can. I am pregnant so I try not to lift it out of there because it gets heavy, but if I ask he does take it out there are times I have to though cause it will be over flowing and he is at work lol. But the trash that has to go to the curb once a week he does take that out I very rarely have to remind him. He does it as soon as he gets home from work. I use to take it to the curb at 9 months pregnant until I threw a fit about it so now he does it lol. I think a guy should do that and mow the lawn just my opinion

  • We have different roles in the house...and garbage is on his list of responsibilities. I put it in the little dumpster deal, but if he lets it pile up beyond that...that is all his problem.

  • Lol I thought ? said take the garage out. I'm like how do you do that. But anyway, yea just tell him the trash needs to be taken out before he goes to bed becasue you have plenty to do.

  • I have to ask him to do it otherwise it's like he doesnt even see the full garbage can sitting doesnt annoy me though, he's scatterbrained and I've come to terms with it lol
