How often does he take rubbish out?

Hello All,
How often does does your partner take the rubbish out? 80% of the time I do this chore only because if I don't then the boyfriend will just leave it and pack it down and eventually will leave rubbish just lying around. It's totally yuck and I tell him so but then he says that I'm nagging angry it's really unfair. He lives like a student and that bother as it feels like he's not respecting our place or me! Tell me your stories and lets compare numbers!

99% of the time, it's me who just shoves another thing in the bin blush

Mum2Fergus Mon 09-Dec-13 22:38:09

100% of bins and recycling...mans work in my opinion lol...

Never
Drives me insane
He ties up the bag and then leaves it there
So he's spotted it needs changing, but can't be arsed to do it

My ex DW always just shoved the rubbish in more and more. I found it such a wind up. One if the things I like the most about her decision to end the marriage is the thought that the lazy moo now has to empty the bins herself. It also means she needs to remember what night is bin night. Idiot.

98% of the time.

99%. Blue job.

My ex P used to take the bins out all the time. It's about the only thing I miss!

DH isn't here on bin day or night before so I do it.

stayanotherday Mon 09-Dec-13 23:19:43

Every day.

100% of the time
If he doesn't do it, it doesn't get done

99% of the time. I only do it in emergencies. We don't have women's and men's jobs so much as my list and his list. Rubbish is on his list.

Every time. I wouldn't know what to do!

I can't remember the last time I took the bins out. DH takes internal out to external bins and sorts external bins for collection. In fact I have just realised I have no idea when bins are collected blush

Rarely

sonlypuppyfat Tue 10-Dec-13 04:33:37

All my family will walk past the dustbin to carry their rubbish to the kitchen bin! I'm like the bin god I'm the only one who understands how they work! Apparently.

SummerPlum Tue 10-Dec-13 05:26:05

100% of the time. And he sorts all the recycling. I do it all wrong, apparently.

Rubbish is his job. Rubbish, recycling and emptying the dishwasher/draining board in the morning.

70/30 split with me taking more out as I leave home earlier.

Yeah I rarely do it! Every now and then I remind myself not to be an arse and make an effort to take it out. But then again he has never washed the dyson filter, he even got an email last week (from dyson) reminding him to do it. Has he? No!

LifeIsBetterInFlipFlops Tue 10-Dec-13 05:56:38

Never

scaevola Tue 10-Dec-13 06:43:31

Never.

Thisisaghostlyeuphemism Tue 10-Dec-13 06:49:24

I do it. He'll "get his suit dirty".
I don't mind it at all. He does other stuff.

GlitteredPinecones Tue 10-Dec-13 06:50:05

100% of the time

headinhands Tue 10-Dec-13 06:56:39

Dh's XW wouldn't touch bins so I he was super impressed with my ability to empty bins for some years. (From what he's said I think XW probably had/has OCD about germs)
