Laziness

How lazy are you/have you been? I work my bollocks off in work and am pretty sure I put as much as possible in to my job, but sometimes on the home front I can be pathetically lazy.

 

The other night, I was in bed with my laptop doing a bit of work and decided to watch a film before getting my head down. I fancied watching Predator, for some reason, and the DVD was in the spare room. I downloaded it because I couldn't be bothered moving to walk about 8 yards.

 

Earlier today, I got an email off Tesco saying I had unused Clubcard points. It said I could print them off if I'd lost the voucher, by clicking on a link. I did, but it asked me to verify my Clubcard number. My wallet was behind me on the worktop and I probably could have reached it if I'd stretched but I just closed the window, again due to not having the motivation to move.

 

I had a friend stay over last night and as I hadn't tidied the flat in a while, I decided to make the effort. Pretty much everything that was littering the bedroom and front room just ended up getting lashed in the spare room instead of being put away/hung up. I then told her the spare room was out of commission for one reason or another so she ended up sleeping in my bed and I went on the sofa, just because I couldn't bother myself to hang up a few jumpers 12 hours earlier.

 

They're hardly going to grind the world to a halt, but I'm not happy that I seem to have become a lazy fucker lately on the home front. How about you lot? Do you leave a shit programme on because the remote hasn't got a remote?

 

I was going to start this thread this afternoon, but couldn't be arsed.

I'm the same. I work my arse off at work, I do loads of unpaid overtime because I have a busy workload.

At home I'm lazy and do as little as I can get away with, my wife is a bit of a nag so she ends up incentivising me with beer and stuff to do the housework.

That's some amazing laziness. The bit about downloading the film cracked me up. I thought I was lazy, but compared to you, no way.

 

I'm too lazy to learn how to cook properly, but when I can't even be bothered to put a pizza in the oven I worry a bit. I am lazy to the point where I unload the dishwasher a bit at a time over a couple of days until it's done, rather than all in one go. I never put my socks away in the drawer either, cos it's too much effort. Once they are washed and dried I just put them all in a pile on the sofa in my bedroom and take them from the pile as I need them.

 

Sometimes the laziness does spread to tidying and cleaning, which I don't like. I try and stay on top of all that, but if there's something good on TV, that's bound to take priority.

Looks like the new man phase is a thing of the past. We appear to have gone back to times where the man works then sits on a couch for the rest of the evening (or at a table with knife and fork in hand) and expect the house to be cleaned by the woman. Despite the woman working all day too. Dear dear.

Due to my PS3 being fitted with a new blu-ray kit the last 9 hours has consisted of Arkham City and two trips to the loo.

 

I've never accused myself of being a hard worker.

I once used Google street view to order me some Chinese. The thought of having to go downstairs and take the phone number off the menu was a bit much, so I just took it off the shop window with the magic of street view. In fairess, I did steal this idea from someone else. It's still pretty lazy though.
