A womans definition of cleaning...throw it away

Does anyone have a wife that thinks throwing stuff away is the same as cleaning ?

And where organizing is putting similar items in different locations.

The low mode should be lower.

yes, I’ve often felt the urge to kill after coming home to find a “cleaning session” has happened

I must’ve had that problem. I threw her out, and now I don’t have a cleaning problem.

To be fair, it probably does balance you out from being a hoarder, to have someone else come in a throw stuff out once in a while.

My wife doesn't do this ..(She's been trained ...(warned) )

My sister does  ..

 But I've seen other women indiscriminantly tossing stuff ..I just made the assumption it was from them doing so many dishes ....if it doesn't fit in the garbage disposal than it goes in the trash .

 

I'm not a hoarder !!!! 

 someday someone might need tines for a rake .

How does one get “A womans definition of cleaning…throw it away” ?

3 easy steps! smile-lol

1. Some people’s definition of cleaning…throw it away.
2. Guys, on average, seem less concerned about the neatness or appearance of their home. As such, between them and their wife (, girlfriend, mother) the later tends to spend more time cleaning.
3. 1+2= “A womans definition of cleaning…throw it away” :bigsmile:

Seems a bit unfriendly for our female members. We have at least 3, maybe more.

Do I have to turn in my brotherhood card..? :~ ghost-blushock-ghost

Hey, those old parts are for practicing soldering!

I feel like I’m out of step here but I am much more concerned with cleaning/tidying than my wife,who has much better things to do with her time and who throws nothing away but rather puts everything with which she is unfamiliar into various plastic boxes, which are then produced at a later date for the keep?/toss? question.It’s actually not a bad system and forces me (I horde stuff like a squirrel with it’s nuts) to think what I really need to keep. Sorry about this guys!

That sounds like a good system, KenCam! I think where we go wrong is not realising something was useful to the other and just assuming it’s rubbish/junk and can be thrown away.

I think  "My Stuff and Your Crap" is a fairly universal attitude - male or female.

Just the opposite. We have tons of stuff that is either broken/defective/not needed/useless/decayed and somehow it all gets stored away.
Every now and then I’ll organize a spring-cleaning and remove (well.. at least half) of all that useless junk

Yeah… you know how it is… You put something in a cardboard box and months later open it to find it’s gone to rot.
In our hot, humid (65-90%) climate that’s what happens usually.

has already threatened to call in the duo Kim and Aggie from “How Clean Is Your House?” for back-up.

“It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to than I have ever known.” – Sydney Carton in ‘A Tale of Two Cities’ by Charles Dickens (1812-1870).
