So we're getting ready for company, and my wife asked me to dust the two top shelves in the family room that she could not reach. The same two shelves I need to stand on a chair to reach. My question is why bother dusting something no one can see? (I would ask her, but no sense kicking off the holidays fighting!) This job ranks up there with dusting under an item on a shelf. No one is going to look under said item, nor can dust get there. What other stupid chores have some of you ever been asked to do?
