FFS Friday - The rules

Since I've been having so much fun with my strike I thought I'd tell you about my strike rules.

1. Clean up your own mess. I will not pick up other peoples mess. If they leave something on the floor, it stays there.

2. Clothes that aren't in the washing basket won't get washed. I'm not going to walk around the house picking up dirty clothes from the floor, trying to figure out what is and isn't dirty. If it isn't in the washing basket it doesn't get washed.

3. I am not the house maid. If you want something, get it yourself, I will not get it for you.

4. Put your own washing away. All the men in my house are old enough to put their own washing away. I don't do it anymore. I'll soon be teaching the boys how to fold their own washing then then whole lot will be their responsibility.

5. Since everyone else in the house dumps their stuff on the floor, on occasion I will do the same thing. Then they can all experience how annoying it is having to clean up a mess that someone else left.

This shouldn't even have to be a rule but here we are.

7. When Dad is home all questions are to be directed to him.

8. If you use the last toilet roll, get more and put them in the basket. 

These are all simple things that I shouldn't even have to mention yet I do.

I must say going on strike has been fun. It's taken a lot of work off me, I'm not as annoyed as I used to be and anyone who comes to my house feels good because their house is way tidier than mine.
