Division of labor. Curiosity post.

Scenario. It's Saturday night. You and DH are both home. Two chores need done. Dinner needs cooked, and the washer needs fixed. Between you and DH, who does which chore?

Edit: I asked because when a friend dropped by this evening I was fixing my washer and DH was cooking dinner. She was shocked at the division of labor in our house.

I couldn't fix the washer if my life depended on it, so I'd do dinner.

I always cook dinner. I'm a former Chef so Dh only grills/smokes. I do everything else.

DH would make dinner then call a repair person. Neither of us is handy.

He would fix the washer. If a girl does it better, she could.

I'm teaching DH to cook, so he's making dinner. I fixed the washer.

well, I would end up doing both.  My wife cannot cook and is not mechanically inclined.  SO... that is that...

I'll cook, he'll fix. 

I'm not handy... I wouldn't know how to fix anything
