What’s the most BORING chore?

There are very few chores I hate doing.

Cleaning the windows and dusting. That’s pretty much the list.

I like doing the dishes now that we have a dishwasher. I don’t mind doing my laundry. Mowing the lawn is a labor of love.

But dusting is THE absolute WORST! I’d pay someone just to do that part of the weekly/monthly chores.

A new survey(in the UK) asked people to name the most mundane chore they could think of and ironing was number one.

I guess, If I actually had to iron my shirts, it would be rather tedious, but as a dude who only wears t-shirts, I don’t really have that problem.

The 10 most boring chores are:

  1. Ironing
  2. Cleaning the toilet
  3. Dusting
  4. Changing your sheets
  5. Washing the windows
  6. Cleaning out the fridge
  7. Cleaning the kitchen
  8. Doing the dishes
  9. Vacuuming
  10. Folding laundry

I actually enjoy most chores because there’s a distinct beginning & end. If I know the bathroom is a mess, I know exactly what needs to be done, I have the tools & skills to get the job done, and then it gets done.

Same as the laundry. I suppose it feeds nicely into my Type-A personality/OCD.

What’s the most boring chore you have to do?
