Wait a minute, did I just step out of a time machine and into 1982? Seriously? This is still a thing? Men not doing housework. Gosh, I guess I’d better go turn on the Cosby show. I think it’s the episode where Clair really let’s Cliff have it over him being so lazy and not doing enough around the house. I tell you that Cliff Huxtable is one typical, lazy, non housework doing man. It was cliche and stupid then, but at least it had some basis in reality. But today? In 2018? Really? There are still men like this? It sure as fuck isn’t me or any men I know. It isn’t even a topic of conversation or debate. 50/50 split is simply the status quo and the normal way of life. Same could be said for cooking, childcare, yardwork, or any other life related task. And I am an old(ish) man, I can’t imagine the younger generation has gone backwards in this regard. I have an idea for my next article. The Incredible Lengths I Went to Get My Wife to Do Her Share of the Lawn Mowing or how about How I Got My Woman to Finally Start Pulling Her Weight with the Small Engine Repair. Gheesh….Seriously? This is really still a thing? I must be living in an alternate universe or something…Crazy.
