This is extremely unfortunate for my family.








Someone around here is going to have to help. (And I don't mean the dogs.)

Sounds like a pre-strike post. I hear you, woman!

w said...

idk. my dog is pretty good at mopping up the crumbs off the floor...

Joanie M said...

I did that about 4 years ago and my kids learned how to cook.

Still voting daily!!! 7th place is right there!!!

Snappy Di said...

But dogs are good at cleaning up, at least after a meal. They will spit shine all your dishes for you as well as the floor. Anyone got a problem with that?? LOL

Good luck with that.

Sandee said...

I had a girlfriend that went on strike for two weeks. That helped a lot. Well for a while. Kids and husbands can be so lazy. It's like it's your job to work all day and then come home and work all night. Just saying. :)

The Boob Nazi said...

In my world, whoever cooks doesn't clean. That's just how it should go. I thought that's how it was for everyone!

♥ Braja said...

Which is why I have a maid....

mommyinreallife said...

Smartest thing I ever did was teach my kids to cook. This is where having so many comes in really handy. I hardly ever cook anymore, just rotate through the brood. Sure, we have the occasional cereal night. And I totally accept frozen waffles as a decent dinner (brinner!!) It's why God invented the toaster oven!

I'm going to print screen that on an apron. How's that about conformity and flying in the face of conformity all at the SAME time. Althoug, with the height of my "mad skills" in the kitchen being able to successfully separate the already prepared chocolate chip cookie dough balls and place them on a pan and only burn them 40% of the time, this sassy apron may be lost on my family entirely.

Michele said...

Good luck with that.

I'd like to be more encouraging but well....I can't. Sorry.

3 Men and a Lady said...

I'd suggest going on strike, but I know if I did that the shit would pile up and swallow me whole.

Sue said...

I just noticed not only onej, but TWO Badges in the honor of Fail! All I can say is you rock girl! Proud to see you stand tall!
Take care, Sue

Rena said...

I love those old posters and signs.

CaneWife said...

Awesome! Good luck with your strike!

LegalMist said...

Let us know how it all comes out.

I can't seem to get my family motivated either, and right now the dust bunnies are taking over, not even bothering to confine themselves to the space behind Mount Washmore any longer.

Semi-Slacker Mom said...

Then you can sent them over here.

CSY said...

Yeah, I've threatened and screamed...I'm feelin' ya!

R.J. said...

Magnets on my fridge: "Housework rots your mind" and "The Queen doesn't cook"

Not The Rockefellers said...

sucks for them!
heh!

Have a great weekend
If I were there we'd sooo be going out for red-eyes while they forage..

Peace ~ Rene

Steven Anthony said...

let us know how that works out for you.. hehehe;)

Titanium said...

Wait. I'm confused. Was I supposed to be doing domestic chores all these years?

*scratches head*

Brian Miller said...

let em have it

Ladybird World Mother said...

Staff? Its the only answer. xxxx

Just B said...

I think dogs are easier to train... This is certainly true in the case of husbands. And at least you can remember that your kids were cute once. I vote for replacing the husband with a robot (or at least a roomba).

Lori said...

Aww... Does somebody need a vaca? And I agree with someone who commented above - dogs are pretty darn good with crumbs, dirty dishes. Heck my dog will even clean the forks and spoons if I ask her nicely enough.

Just Breathe said...

Love this sign, it has been a staple on my blog for almost a year now. I told my kids (grown) that the only thing I want to make are reservations!

Annie @ astonesthrowfrominsanity said...

Where can I order this in poster size?!?!? Seriously!! :)

Merideth in Wyoming said...

Oh my - been there; done this. A strike only means that things get really really messy until you have to clean it yourself.....

just making my way said...

I NEED that sign!

S.L.N. said...

I just found your site- funny- I just wrote about one of those vintage images today ... and it just happened to be about vodka. Great blog!

SkylersDad said...

Dump a box of cereal all over the table and tell them to go "Free range".

Carrie said...

I used that same image for one of my posts :)

Barrie said...

More and more, my family is having to deal with the same issue!

The Pipster said...

I'm making that in to a bumper sticker and putting in on the back of my car.

Anything Fits a Naked Man said...

I'm afraid I won't be of much help. Cooking? Cleaning? Hmmm, interesting.

Irish Gumbo said...

Damn lazy dogs...

Mellodee said...

I did both for decades!! Now, I don't do either unless forced! :)

Secretia said...

That does put things in the proper perspective, VodkaMom!

Tracey - Just Another Mommy Blog said...

Shoot. Cooking? How about "If you want to eat, cook it yourself!" ?? Sounds good to me.

The Mind of a Mom said...

Ohhh this is so my house, so I hired a maid and made The hubster pay for her :o)
He got the point

the treat girl said...

That's what I'm talkin' about!!!!!!!!!

Elenka said...

Going on strike?
Dogs don't help much anyway.....

peewee said...

hey! I have this on my fridge! HAHAHHA! I also have "Damn right I'm good in the kitchen! I can eat for HOURS!"

heh.

Gaston Studio said...

Definitely think you should strike! Unless you just can't live in a messy house because you KNOW they're going to ignore the mess too!

g said...

Even my lousy housekeeper is a better cleaner than I am.

Vodka Logic said...

Funny.. I pay my kids but at least it gets me out of it.
