What is a Pink Job?
Is it doing the laundry? emptying the dishwasher? cooking the dinner? dusting the bannisters?
What is a Blue Job?
Is it changing the light bulb? cutting the grass? taking the bins out?
My husband and i seem to have colour co-ordinated certain household chores and are still quarrelling over what is a pink or blue job. The trouble is when both partners work, do pink and blue jobs still stand? Do women feel that husbands are equally sharing the domestic chores?
Do men feel that if they cooked the dinner, their female counterpart could take the bins out?
What are household jobs categorised by these days? Is it based on the level of strength needed to complete a chore or how much capacity each person has to do the housework? How do you decide who does what without getting into an argument over it?
Have you noticed how many people are now going self employed and entering new trades such as residential cleaners, dog walkers, gardeners.
If you haven’t considered it before, why not consider hiring a weekly or fortnightly cleaner so you can spend your spare time taking up a new hobby. Why not get a professional gardener to cut the grass whilst you enjoy an afternoon kicking the ball around in the park with your little ones? Time is money so save yours to do what you enjoy doing best.
Forget the Pink jobs and Blue jobs and ‘Find the right person for the right job’.
