Who would have thought such a thing could happen?

  1. There are a few possible explanations:

    1. As above, they get a cleaner. Missus happy, fella happy
    2. He is working shitlong hours and getting home at 8:30
    3. Missus weighs up the trade off between extremely comfortable lifestyle and moaning about a few hours housework and makes a sensible decision.

  2. So what used to be called “career-focused” or “dedicated to his job” is now called “disagreeableness”.

  3. If my missus was constantly moaning about stuff I don’t do around the house, I’d be putting in longer hours at work.

  4. The Pedant-General

    Causation direction?

    If they’re right, I can change my salary by changing the amount of housework I do.
