If you live with housemates, you’re all too familiar with this situation. You come home from a long day at work to find dishes in the sink, a bathroom yet to be cleaned, wet clothes in the dryer, and a stack of bills needing to be paid.

Now - when facing such a home it’s all too easy to think that it’s someone else’s fault. Sure, you left some dishes in the sink - but they were soaking! PLUS you’ve taken the bins out two whole weeks in a row.

When you ask your friends to do their part, they’re more than likely to say something similar. Sure, they forgot to do X but they already did Y.

What we have here is a classic breakdown in communication.

Everyone needs to pull their weight, pitch in, and lend a hand. The trouble is that not all jobs were created equal. If you’ve scrubbed the toilet bowl to perfection, your housemate will have to do more than wipe down a bench. And so, in the interest of Share-Home-Economics and the disinterest of passive aggression, we present to you now...
