News Flash: Husbands are More Work

I’m hoping Lisa doesn’t hear about the University of Michigan’s latest findings. As part of a housewife.jpgdetailed study on “housework trends”, researchers have concluded that husbands create an extra seven hours a week of housework for women. Duh-uh. Lisa’s been telling me that for years.

Is this just because men are slobs or, as I suspect, we just want someone to replace our Mommy? (After all, only someone special can wash our dirty underoos.) Then again, it’s possible we’re just seven times more busy than our wives and unable to clean up the messes we make. Okay, strike that.

I can just hear the feminists out there with their hairy armpits and camo pantsuits saying married women deserve it. Stay single, sister, and you won’t have that problem! But then you’ll miss out on all our other qualities. . . like peeing on the floor and farting in public (oops! at least I thought that was a fart!).

Okay, so Lisa’s right. I do create more work for her. But putting up with these kinds of studies creates seven times more stress for me. . .

    First off, I shaved last week.

    Second, camo goes with my eyes 🙂

    I suppose you guys do rack up the extra hours, but we drive you absolutely nuts sometimes so it balances out, I think. 🙂

    Do you have any idea how long it’s going to take me to get through my “honey-do” list?! I’d like to see a study on that.

    They did RESEARCH to discover this??? There was FUNDING??? Definately true around here. And when the husband has two dirt-tracking, fur-shedding labradors, I think it adds up to more than 7 hours. And with all that cleaning…who has time to shave?!

    i’m pretty sure that they said 7 hours because there isn’t anyone at the U of M that can count any higher! (O-H…)

    on a serious note: a great husband, like you, Mike, may ‘create’ seven more hours of ‘work,’ but what you give to your wife, your marriage, and your family is worth infinitely more than a measely seven more hours of ‘work.’

    Why thank you, Ame. I’ll remember this next time I leave my dirty socks laying around.
