Where I currently live there is only one close neighbor a Thai family the guy speaks understandable English having once worked abroad for a few years the Thai guy came to see me to ask to borrow my petrol hedge cutter machine .We sat having a cold beer in my lounge and I happened to mention to him that I always helped my Thai wife with the house work like sweeping and some times mopping and washing up the dinner plates. The Thai guy smiled and said that its not the husband’s  place to be doing house work and that I should leave all the house work to my wife. I am now wondering if the Thai guy is right . Does any one else help with the house work or do you like the Thai guy think its a wife's job .

Hi. Does your Wife have a job ? Most couples I know share garden duties and the Guy helps around the house as the need arises. As long as you are not being lumbered with all the housework, why worry about it ? Teamwork is good.

That's my take, just MO. If your OK as it is, no problem . . . .

I'd be more worried about lending the Neighbour the hedgecutter LOL. I hear of tools being returned broken, knackered or not being returned at all. Good luck with that  ???

My wife bless her does not work which is the way I like it although she does look after the house and garden and of course yours truly . I think you have hit the nail on the head with the word ... Teamwork . The Thai guy ( Tum ) has always returned any tools he has borrowed in the past I think as he has worked abroad he knows the drill ( excuse the pun ;D ) about returning things in a working condition .

I take out the garbage and wash my own dishes the rest my wife does. I am lucky as my wife is a clean nut and our house is spotless. She mops and vacuums everyday and even washes down the carport everyday. She does washing everyday and I sometimes take in the wash if she is not home and it looks like rain.

My wife is very busy running 3 stores, Convenience store, Pet Mart and Hardware store. (She makes more money than me with 2 pensions and Social Security) So we have a maid come in once a week to wash clothes, change sheets on the bed, mop the floors etc. We also have a gardener cut the grass (big yard) when it's needed. I wash the dishes once in a while but my wife keeps telling me not to, that she will do it.
I'm not lazy, I'm motivationally challenged.
