According to a survey conducted by Dove Men Care, of the 1,000 male British folk surveyed, the responders said they do an average of 13 hours a week of housework – mostly taking out the garbage, do-it-yourself tasks, and childcare.
As a part-time worker and full-time dad, I can completely relate to the survey’s finding that men are doing more around the house than our fathers ever did.
What I found more intriguing in the story was the fact that 60 percent of the survey takers said they felt all their housework went unnoticed by their female partner.
What shocked me about the above sentence was that Dove Men Care could find 400 (there’s your number for the day; 40% of 1000) women who would actually complement a man for doing housework.
I think the men on the isle are being far too generous, but maybe it’s different in Britain.
