most hated chore---and the award goes to...

In the never-ending quest to conquer clutter, I was going through yet another accumulated pile of crap. Found an old Parents magazine. Flipped through it. The results of a survey caught my eye. The question--What's your Most Hated Household Chore?
The results:
----#1. Cleaning the bathroom.
----#2. Changing diapers.
----#3. Doing the dishes.
----#4. Doing the laundry.

My take on the results...
----O.K., it's pretty hard to argue with cleaning the bathroom (can't be a soul alive who enjoys this, right?).
----Changing diapers-you certainly can't call this fun, but Most Hated Household Chore?!!...geez, it's not that bad! (Though I am still clinging to the hope that my 3-year-old will actually give them up someday!).
----Doing the dishes-obviously there are many who will think me crazy, but I almost enjoy this one (and I don't even have a dishwasher!).
----Doing the laundry-would certainly rejoice if there were not quite so much of it!

However, none of the above have my vote. My personal choice for Most Hated Household Chore is DUSTING.
I hate dusting. I despise dusting. I detest dusting. I loathe dusting. I abhor dusting. If could think of any more appropriate synonyms I would continue.

Anyway, what's your Most Hated Household Chore?

Hmmm, my most hated chore. The bathroom is up there. With DH and a 7 year old DS it's not the most pleasant experience. I've been spoiled my DH doing the dishes most nights. (No, we don't have a dishwasher either.) My least favorite would have to be washing the kitchen floor. I HATE that job!!

take care,

And besides that, you don't like it, do you?? lol

Mine would be the oven... using all the verbs you did. I'd rather clean 10 toilets than one oven... well, maybe 5.
