Mum Rips Into Husbands Who Expect Their Wives To Do All The Housework
A woman has ripped into spouses who assume the housework is their partners responsibility in a savage viral Facebook post.
Blogger, Constance Hall, posted the rant on social media where she explained how her hubby only does housework when she asks him to and not off his own back.
Of course, she received a lot of responses about the post, and a lot of women identified with the mum's problems.
She touches on the concept of 'emotional labour' which is defined as "the process of managing feelings and expressions to fulfill the emotional requirements of a job."
In other words, despite Constance's husband doing some of the household tasks, it is still seen as her job to manage and delegate the tasks and even though she is not doing the chores it is just as exhausting.
Constance wrote: "Recently while b*tching about the fact that I do absolutely everything around my house with a bunch of friends all singing 'preach Queen', someone said to me 'if you want help you need to be specific... ask for it. People need lists, they aren't mind readers.'"
"So I tried that, asking.. specifics..'Can you take the bin out? Can you get up with the kids? I'm just a little tired after doing it on my own for 329 years. Can you go to woolies? I've done 3 loads of washing and made breaky, lunch, picked up all the kids school books, dealt with the floating sh*t in the pond'.
"And yeah, she was right... sh*t got done. But I was exhausted, just keeping the balls in the air."
Constance then continued and said that as soon as she stopped asking for things to be done nothing was done and it was left to her.
She explained how couple should work together to get the household chores done without having to ask each other.
Constance wrote: "Because when the nagging stops, when the asking dies down, when there are no more lists....All your left with is silent resentment.
"And that my friends is relationship cancer..It's not up to anyone else to teach you consideration. That's your job.Just do the f*cking dishes without being asked once in a while mother f*ckers."
Most social media users agreed with the blogger, with one adding: "A friend of mine says there's only one thing harder than being a single parent and having to do it all yourself, and that's having to do everything yourself whilst someone watches from the couch. Just adds anger to your tiredness[sic]."
Another added: "This is the reason for a lot of relationship breakups! I think it would be easier on my own cause I wouldn't have to keep yelling at someone to do it or expect help..I would only have to rely on myself and not be let down by someone constantly cause they can't think beyond their own needs[sic]!"
