It used to be that my LJ flist would move through 40 posts in a day or two, while my DW readlist would struggle.

These days, it's quite the opposite.


I've had a busy week and a pretty busy weekend, and came home to a little sister (B2 - she comes and stays over weekends, as compared to B1 who lives with me) who's really more like having a male partner - you have to ask her to do any housework, and be pretty specific about how it should be done and when, or else she assumes that it doesn't need doing, or that it's not her responsibility.

She had five hours from the time she got home last night until the time she went to bed to wash some dishes, and now she's reluctantly saying that "she'll stay overnight to get the dishes washed if necessary". It wouldn't have been necessary IF SHE HAD DONE IT LAST NIGHT. Thirty minutes. Maybe an hour (she takes forever to wash dishes, honestly). But, no.

I had a little dummy spit. Told her to do one thing that needs doing - and no, hanging out the washing (one of the functional reasons she comes around and stays) doesn't count.

So today - as much of a day off as I have - I get to spend cleaning the house and washing the dishes which have sat there for several days already.

I have actually been the overly literal annoying little sister. They do sometimes eventually learn, but sorry it happened. :more hugs:

Yeah, I went back 40 posts and couldn't go anymore today XD

UGH that drives me NUTS. Half the time people that gripe over chores spend more time griping than the would have DOING IT
