OK, for those who still live with their parents you would call this chores. For those who are in collage or on their own would call this "work around the house".
We'll today as i was doing my chores and i was getting super bored. I started thinking aboout what all of you guys do. Just so i know if i'm not alone. ^_^. Well, i know i'm not the only one who does chores, but i'm still interested in what you all do.
i have to walk my dogs
Clean my own clothes
clean our loft (very messy at the moment)
Do homework (yes my parents call tha a chore )
So what do you do?
(I bet atleast 3 people here will say I dont do anything.)
I used to be the sole cleaner of the house. Made sure verything was nice and neat. Only thing I didn't do were the dishes and my parents bedroom. Got paid handsomly for it, too: a less-than-deserved $20 a week.
Those duties vanished a month ago, though. I became employed and now all I have to worry about it whatever little things may be asked of me and the maintanence of my own room. Not that it's asked my room is clean, I just can't stand it being dirty, so I do it of my own volition.
-Wash dishes once a week.
-Mop the floors three times a week.
-Clean my room and washroom (but I'm lazy).
-Vacuum my room and the room next to mine and also the entire basement once every three weeks.
-Take out the trash once per week.
-Have to wash clothes if my parents are away and I'm alone.
-Have to cook (but that's not chores, that's survival).
... and blah blah blah. Enough chores for you? Heh.
At my mom's place, I've got to do the dishes, which I passionately hate. But sometimes (read: quite often) my mom does it for me for studying hard (it might be in place to note that 'hard' is relative ).
At my dad's place, I have to dry the dishes. Or rather, the cutlery and the glasses.
As you can see, I've got the responsibilities of an eight-year-old ^_^ .
Well, at my own apartment I have to do everything of course, and when I'm home at my parents house, I have to clean my room, mowe the lawn and make dinner once in a while..
I also have to deliver the newspaper to our neighbour after we've finished reading it.
I'm only 12, so not much. I take out the trash, let the dog out, feed him, clean the junk in the house, and empty the dishwasher. 12 bucks a week. I also mow the lawn and do yardwork, but I get paid seperately for that.

i usually wash the dishes or put 'em in the dishwasher...
i'm usually the one that sweeps up all the floors and then Swiffers them with the Orange wet Swiffer towels...
i'm always the one that takes the trash out...
3 roommates share a bathroom; the other 2 of us share the other one (which is actaully in my room)...the other roommate that uses this bathroom isnt very considerate of keeping it clean (spit all over the faucet, doesnt pull a new roll of TP on the roll, pisses on the rim of the toilet and the floor, etc.) so i keep that bathroom clean...
Clean the cat box (I have a cat)
Dust the house
Clean both bathrooms
Clean my room
Vaccume my room
Sweep the driveway
Feed my cat
Scoop out catbox everyday
Put away my clothes when clean
Put away the dishes when clean
Before I got a job, I use to clean the entire house every weekend and go to college. Now, I hardly have time for anything because I have a job. Cleaning my own room is being a pain. I don't keep it messy as I put things away, just the genral cleaning like dusting and such.
Compared to some other people I know, i would say that my chores aren't too bad. On a regular basis I have to:
- Wash the dishes (not many, considering we have a dishwasher)
- Keep my room constantly spotless (I usually wait until my bed is a heap of clothes and old socks, and then I start cleaning)
-Vaccum the house
-Wash the Car
