Top Ten Worst Chores


The Top Ten

1 Cleaning your room

Yup. This one certainly tops the list. I like my room exactly the way it is and don't really see how a lack of organization is a big deal but my parents freak out about it. Every time my dad enters my room he nitpicks the heck out of it. Seriously. Whenever we are in my room talking, the conversation somehow turns to "Well your room would look so much better if you would pick this stuff up off the floor and put the these clothes away and straighten up your table so you can actually draw."
Even though it is true, my room could look better, I'd rather just do some 3D modeling on my computer... Or clean someone else's room.

My room is always a complete mess so I dread the days that I have to actually CLEAN it. - Thousandeyesrestrict

And the worst part when they ask to do it right sit down to dinner - gormgirl

This ain't no problem my room is amazing

2 Washing the dishes

You have to stick your hands in gross water with food in it and you have to touch other people's dirty dishes with leftover food on it

I hate washing the dishes. You have to stick your hands in dirty gross water that's disgusting. One time I put my hand in the water and I got cut on a dirty knife. I HATE IT!

This is hands down the worst chore. Sticking your hand in steaming hot, gross water with nasty food in it and there are so many dishes...I spent an hour washing dishes earlier today...Time to buy paper plates and bowls lol

So true I hate this chore so much I will soon have to do it it sucks

3 Cleaning the bathrooms

I hate it. I once missed "the simpsons" because of it. Really? I asked my dad if I could do it after the simpsons and he just said "No. Go clean." - Trivium

Especially after your sister! Hey. Everyone should love walking their pets and feeding them... It's a labour of love! Now scrubbing poo, THAT should be blammed. - Oreanta

I live with four siblings. The males always miss, and the females never flush. Absolutely disgusting. The youngest one is nine years old!

It's just nasty...

4 Making your bed

What's the whole point of it if you're going to mess it up the next night? SO STUPID, WHERE'S THE LOGIC?

I mean what is the point of making your bed if you are just going to mess it right back up again.

I actully don't mind, unless someone makes me do it like my mom, she always says"when you make your bed you have to finish the rest to make it fully clean" and sometimes I don't make the bed properly I just take the sheets off and hide'em but for some reason my mom notices that they are gone

5 Sorting the laundry

It takes FOREVER before you even make a dent in that pile! -

My Step-Dad made me put away his and my moms laundry. I have no idea where any of it goes.


6 Vacuuming

If you live in a big house and you really like to be organised, vacuuming is one of the worst chores because it will take ages to vacuum, moving furniture to vacuum at certain places and also vacuuming tiny places that the head can't fit is really annoying. It ruins my concentration and if you have to do it frequently (like me), it ticks you off so much. And also, the big part of the vacuum following the vacuum head is so hard to lug around and makes doing this chore very uncomfortable.

I try to watch tv but the vacuum is too loud to listen to it its like living in a a dungen!

Sometimes when my mum vacuums a few rooms the vacuum makes noise and it interrupts me from watching telly

Vacuuming SUCKS!

7 Cleaning out closet

It's absolutely terrible if your closet has a lot of stuff in it. I like my closet just the way it is

8 Watering the plants

My dad made me do this today after I rode my bike.

9 Sweeping

My dad and I have a deal that if I sweep, he does the dishes. It's not worth it. And those dishes have seemingly eternal stains. -

It sucks, dishes are worse than this

10 Feeding the dog

The Contenders

11 Mowing the lawn

While it's true that it really all depends on what mower you have, but if you have one as bad as mine this would be your #1. - arbeZameniC

I hate mowing the lawn, especially when your dad wakes you up in the morning so you can do it early.

Oh my gosh why do you want us to mow a lawn when were like 7 years old

It sucks

12 Cleaning up after your dogs

I have cats, kitty litter is the grossest thing ever... even the automatic ones! - sladecs

I hate doing it just too gross

13 Walking the dog

What's wrong with walking the dog it's nice to walk the dog

I love walking my dog... Who put this on here?

14 Cleaning fish bowl

It isn't gross at all if you have a filter

Go to the mall

It woiuld be cool because it would help stop the waste of time out of your day that you could be spending with your family meanwhile

My fishbowl is really gross and I have to scrub it!

15 Set the table

I hate it it wastes time

16 Changing grandpa's diapers

Sucks if you have to do this haha

EWWw all that baby food runs down -

This is fin stupid like really there is no problem with cleaning your grandpas diampers its sad okay show some love to your grandpa

It swells

17 Changing baby's diapers

I can imagine it, yuck!

It kinda stinks

Yuck worst than dishes

Yuck it is so grose to see poopy dipers

18 Washing the truck

I think it is just like a break from work

19 Hanging out / taking in the laundry

Hanging out the laundry is the most tedious chore as there is no way of speeding it up.

20 Cleaning the shed
21 Playing piano

If your parent didn't force you to play and if you had something to look forward to, then wouldn't your parents telling you to practice ruin your will to actually go play in the first place? I never had this as a chore, but I do play the piano and do it on my own. I don't ever think it should be a chord and that it should be completely optional. - LowMiner50

Music is never supposed to be a chore. I find it very stupid how some people force their kids to play instruments.

I hate how my mom is like you have to practice piano!

THIS IS SO BORING because I have to practice a lot...

22 Taking out the trash

It is awful. Especially in the rain when the trash is really stinky. Or if there's a hole in the bag and it spills on you.

23 Raking/blowing leaves

It takes me hours. Wasting my life.

24 Picking up dog poop

Yeah it can be so gross sometimes

25 Opening a clogged toilet

One of the most disgusting things ever it should be number one next to cleaning the bathrooms? I guess the world may never know. Haha

26 Dusting the sideboards

"Its terrible. I wake up with terrible back pain! "

27 Pulling weeds

This is the worst ever I just hate it so much

It hurts your back and it sucks!

I happen to enjoy doing this. - sketchysteve

28 Cleaning out the fridge

There's the left-over mac and cheese from last month!

29 Cleaning the toilet
30 Weeding

They will just grow back people

31 Cleaning after kids
32 Cleaning the oven

With a nod to the affirmative of the tasks above, I present here the mother of all household chores... Oven cleaning. What I consider 2nd only to scrubbing the bog (loo), chiseling charred goo off the bottom of me hob has never been a pleasant chore, all 30 years of it. Thanks be to services like Custom Kitchen Detail, who actually LOVE what they do, my roasting cave sparkles like new. Beat that!

33 Cleaning out litter box
34 Turning off the light at night
35 Cleaning nappies
36 Organizing drawers

Organizing drawers is the worst. It can be a pain just to try to find that perfect organizer otherwise the drawer becomes unorganized next time it is opened. On top of that you need to ruin the drawer by removing all items from it before you clean. This is why I believe organizing drawers is the worst chore of all.

37 Tidying your shoes and slippers up
38 Painting the house
39 Shoveling Snow

I always takes so long to do this and it is kinda hard

This always takes too long

40 Preparing food

Dad hates cooking. Leave it all up to mom of course!

41 Giving your dog a bath

Makes a huge mess
