I cleaned...

run the fuck away
...I cleaned the kitchen. Actually, "cleaned" isn't exactly the right word, mostly because it still has a long way to go. I did one side of the sink's worth of dishes, plus the dishes deliriumcrow and I dirtied in the process of getting breakfast. I swept and mopped the floor three times, and it's still dirty. Wiped down some of the exposed area of the table (there's a big pile of stuff of unknown origin on it), and scrubbed the stove.

Now, if any of these tasks had been done in the recent past, none of this would have been an issue. But the fact is, the last time the kitchen floor was cleaned was when Ben did it when we moved in. For some reason, no one felt the need to do dishes this weekend. The stove has never been cleaned.

I am hot, and sweaty, and annoyed. All it takes is for people to sweep the floor about once a day, mop it about once a week, clean the stove when it's dirty, and do dishes when they use them. The remainder of the cleaning of the kitchen is someone elses problem. But it'd also be a good idea for someone to vacuum the living room.

    Why don't you guys setup a schedule. There are five people in the house and seven days of the week. Set up a rotation. Assign tasks. That way everyone is doing work. Clean the house Trimount Style!!

      Ok, a couple of things. First off. I have a problem with a schedule that uses everyone, seeing as I'm almost never around to make the messes. I make some, but *most* (not all) of the kitchen mess is not mine, otherwise I'd have done it.

      I was planning to vaccume the LR, but havn't gotten around to bringing the vaccume downstairs. If I have time, I'll do it tonight when I get home. But no promises. I've been drafted into retail *again* tonight, so I'll be home around 10:30, and the boss is bitchy about being to work on time now, so might not have the time. Prolly won't have time again until the weekend, but if you wanna wait that long, I'll do it. Mayhaps you should employ Heather and Mike. Lord knows they use *US* enough. O_o

      But I agree we need to all get ourselves on task. Let me know what I can do and I'll try to help.

    Oh! Two more things!

    First of all, thank you for working on the kitchen! It's much appreciated!

    Secondly, we need to get a large bin for recycables! That'd help keep the kitchen alot cleaner!

    Thirdly! Is Mike pissing you off as much as he's pissing me off? He's an asshole, and I'm fucking tired of him!

      I seem to recall taking a one hour drive to the Ren fair in just under three hours ... with a pit stop in New Jersey ... I'm a bit annoyed with him
      • Re: The House

        To be fair, I know how to get there, and it's SO~ easy. Man, shame you guys went without me. I reiterate. Mike is an ass, and we should wipe his entrails from this plane of existance. Gather your armies, people of Earth.

          We missed exit 16. I didn't remember whether it was 16 or 15and I realized it after we passed it. It was the fact that he had the directions in the car the whole time and didn't say anything!!!!
          • Re: The House

            It's easy to remember because it's the last exit before the Toll Barrier. Ofcourse, I have been there 3 or 4 years in a row now, so maybe it's easier for me. Either way, Mike is an ass. He shoulda said something, the fuck.
  • Re: The House

    I understand that you aren't there alot. James and Tim barely affect the house too. However there are certain things, like mopping the floor, vacuuming, cleanng the bathroom, etc that everybody contributes to regardless of how much they're home. You walk on the floor. You make it dirty. You take showers. Theres no reason why a rotation can't be setup so that everyone has a turn at cleaning. I know you weren't in Boy Scouts that long, but you guys are a patrol. You are working towards a common goal (which is living peacefully in one house). Everyone has to put in a fair amount of work.

    As for other stuff, like dishes, there are two very good points being made. first, the common rule: If you dirty it, you clean it. That includes everybody, even Heather, Mike and Myself.

    The other point is that if someone cooks for the entire house, they shouldn't have to clean up as well. Also a good point. I think both can co-exist.
