Top Ten Ways That Husbands Help Their Wives With the Housework

Men are lovely aren't they? We women must give the little dears credit where it's due, mustn't we? )
This list is just tongue-in-cheek and not meant to be taken seriously. After all, men are such sensitive creatures...
The Top Ten
1 They go to bed for a few hours so you can clean downstairs

You do know that a husband should also help their wives clean down stairs because it not very fair that a wife has to do all the cleaning, while the husband doesn't do anything at all. A wife deserves a break from cleaning, and children should also help their mothers clean the house.

Sometimes after working a 50 hour week, providing for a house to live in, food to eat, clothes on backs, etc, we need a little recharging nap.
I, for one, would love to trade housework for a full-time job. Though many of us (on both sides of the gender coin) end up doing both.

My mom, as the sole parent of the household, works full-time and takes care of my sisters and I, AND the house. What a superhero!

Unfortunately enough it took me a bit too long the fathom that this was sarcasm (and a mighty good use of it I might add).

2 They tell you the correct way to lift heavy objects so you can carry them safely from one room to another

Now that's just having safety in mind. Which is better, some good advice or a back injury?

Husbands should be the one that's lifting a heavy object!

3 They helpfully point out parts you may have missed

If a husband is going to help his wife by pointing out the parts that his wife have missed, then why can't a husband help their wives clean up the mess. It shows how lazy a husband can be.

Just where would you be without our courteous constructive criticism to guide you every step of the way?

And that would be approximately 99% of it.

My dad does this a lot.

4 They stack the chairs on the table so you have a nice clear space to wash the floor
5 They plug the Hoover in for you
6 They lift their feet for you to clean underneath them

Only sometimes the foot is just too comfortable on the floor...

7 They tell you when they've used the last of the toilet roll so you can replace it

If a man uses the last of the toilet roll and wants his wife to replace it, then her should change the toilet paper himself! How hard is it!? Is a husband trying to treat a woman like his personal servant/maid? Is he trying to be the "extra child" so his wife has to do everything!? Well guess what? It's not hard to change a toilet paper roll! It's easy!

8 They open the door for you to carry heavy shopping through

Who says chivalry is dead?

9 They tell you when it rains so you can bring the washing in from the line
10 They throw their washing next to the basket in a neat little pile

It also helps their wife know they have some washing to go in the machine.

The Contenders
11 They reach for the cups from the cupboard so you can make tea

Unless she married a man shorter than she is...
