Women - put YOUR man to the test
Does your guy do his share of the housework? Take our quiz and find out
That’s the word from a leading cleaning expert who points out that survey after survey shows guys almost always claim to do more work around the house than women are willing to give them credit for.
"Even when the man thinks he's doing his share, you can bet your bottom dollar he isn't," housecleaning-king Don Aslett, author of the fascinating book, Who Says It’s a Woman’s Job to Clean?, tells the Herald-Guide.
"The fact is, most men haven't the faintest idea how much work in involved in housecleaning."
Aslett, of Pocatello, Idaho, developed the quiz that follows to help men and women determine once and for all who's really doing the work around the house.
Take it to find out where you stand. Men go first. Then it's the women's turn.
Have fun, and DO be sure to show the quiz to friends and co-workers so they can enjoy it, too.
Men: Answer each of the 20 questions below using this Point System: 5-Always. 3-Sometimes. 1-Rarely. 0-Never.
Women, when your guy finishes the quiz, it's your turn to rate HIM using the same Point System. When finished, total the score he gave himself and the score you gave him.
If the numbers don't match, talk it over. Who knows? You might wind up with a happier home because of it.
