Men’s Housework Timer – chauvinist maybe, funny probably…

Menshouseworktimer

The Men’s Housework Timer is designed to encourage the male of the species to slouch into the kitchen and do their fair share of the work. Flip the timer upside down as they start donning the yellow glovies and they keep going till it runs out of sand. Smart idea. £6.99.

[Psst…small thing. The thing has been calibrated to last precisely 3 seconds! Don’t tell]

 We can all picture the scene; (Man) is comfortably sitting on the sofa, mug of tea in one hand, packet of biscuits in another, and a classic Sunday wartime movie on the TV. (Woman) enters the field of vision, expresses some doubt as to how much of a contribution (man) is making to cleaning the house. The result? Most likely (man) will choose to ignore (woman) and continue as normal. This is wrong. And the Men’s Housework timer is here to fix this.
