If it comes down to it, if your wife or girlfriend wishes to take a break from doing house chores, be the bigger person and let her have her day’s share of rest.
One Ugandan Youtuber known as Rogers Ssebunya, owner of the SB4 YouTube channel came out on social media to state that he can barely stand his wife doing house chores. He went ahead to reminisce how he one day found his wife busy doing laundry, and all he wanted to do was see her rest after a long day at the office.
Many of us looked on after his revelation, daydreaming like’ wow, that’s the man of my dreams right there.’ Whether he did that online display for clout or because he genuinely cares, remains hazy.
However, since we are already on that train of thought, we might as well indulge. Going straight to the point, (Because mambo ni mengi, na masaa ni machache), if your wives and girlfriends do not wish to do chores, let them be. This goes out to more so, the girlfriends, doing wifely duties to those Zakayos who could care less.

Sometimes, women just want to get home, remove that darn wig, put their feet on the plush couch, and relax. Is it too much to ask? Well, it might as well be since there are a ton of piled-up dishes waiting for her, and oh, is that you dirty laundry looking at the lady of the house in disdain for sitting instead of cleaning?
And to top off the fact that it is ‘required’ of them is a whole other discussion. The thing is though, rest is sometimes very much necessary, all chore boycotts notwithstanding. Chores like doing dishes may seem like such a minute thing, yet it takes a whole lot of energy. So, imagine cleaning the house from ceiling to floor. That is military work, and this is not an exaggeration.
It is safe to say, that every once in a while if she (your wife, or girlfriend) is tired or unable to do the house chores, chip in. Help out where you can, maybe throw in a foot massage or some pampering. This may get her cleaning spirit back next time.
As for the dear women, if the cleaning enthusiasm leaves you one day, by all means, sit down and be pretty. The chores will still be handled, only later.
