I don’t know about your households, but ours have a lot of rules lately. I am not big on petty rules, but let me tell you there are several I would love to break. I am sure you could think of a few you would love to break in your household as well.
The first one I would break is the toilet flushing one. We have this thing called if it’s yellow let it mellow, if its brown flush it down rule. I know it is to save water an energy, but I have to be honest and say it is disgusting and I would love nothing more than to just flush the toilet after each use. On some cases I simply have and I seem to always get yelled at or questioned about it. There isn’t any major consequence for it except maybe a little bit higher water and electric bill.
The second rule I would love to break is turning off the lights as you leave each room. The reason why is because I am scared of the dark at nighttime and I know that’s funny because I am an adult, but being alone at night for me is just creepy. During the day I can understand the turning off the light rule when you leave a room, but come on at nighttime. Nighttime I would love nothing more than to turn all the lights on in every room until someone comes home and I am not alone in the big old house anymore. However, I know if I were to do that in this old house our electrical bill would be sky high so therefore I actually do shut the lights off in each room.
The other rule I would love nothing more than to break is the doing the dishes after dinner rule. I hate doing dishes after a meal an especially dinner cause I just cooked and ate and usually am really tired. I never seem to have the energy to do those dishes after a meal, but I know if I don’t do them right after dinner I will have twice the pile of dishes to do in the morning after breakfast. So I simply do them no matter how I feel.
Oh, another rule I hate and would love to break is the whole switching the showerhead back over the the bathtub faucet after a shower. I seem to always forget to push the switch back down to faucet after a shower, but I would love to leave the switch set to shower simply because it is much easier to turn the knob and the shower is on. However, some people in my household hate when the switch isn’t back to the bathtub faucet because I guess they have to adjust the showerhead each time the get into the shower so the water isn’t spraying all over them. The other reason I really cant leave the switch switched to the shower is because it will drip water constantly if I don’t turn the switch the bathtub faucet instead and everyone hate wasting water and the annoying dripping sound. I know a silly rule to want to break, but I would love to break it more often than I do.
The last rule I really hate in our house is having to fold the laundry right after the drier is done. If I could I would let the dryer dry my clothing and than leave the cloths in it until I was ready to fold the laundry. However, if I do the cloths get wrinkly and whoever has cloths in the washer can’t put their clothing in the dryer immediately after, and we all know if we leave wet cloths in the washer to long they get mildew smelling. Therefore I can not break the folding the cloths after they are done drying in the dryer.
See I have a few weird household rules I would love to break. Now I bet all of you out there wanting to break some household rooms don’t feel so bad about wanting to break some. Just know that with breaking any kind of rules there are consequences so be prepared to deal with them if you break the rules.
