Seven hours you can’t get back
How much time do I waste a week cleaning up after my adorable but messy husband? Reuters says seven:
I’m pretty sure the story isn’t that far off. Several times this weekend I came into the living room and found a plate or bag and would ask my husband: Is this going to walk itself into the garbage? He would then tell me: I was about to throw it out.
About â in guy speak â can mean anywhere from one minute to seven hours.
Granted, I have my messy moments, too—but they are far less frequent (probably because of that whole female nesting thing).
So, how much of your week is spent cleaning up after each other?
