The average American can expect to shell out $138,866 on chores in their lifetime, and spend 30 gruelling days doing chores every year. The study of 2,000 Americans, commissioned by US household help providers, Task Rabbit, showed that people generally spend twice as long on chores than they do going out with friends, spending time with family, and even relaxing in front of the television. One in 25 even claimed it has affected their relationship with their significant other.
The study found scrubbing the toilet on all fours was the most hated chore of all time. Other loathsome jobs included washing dishes, doing laundry and cleaning the tub.
