Tasks You Loathe The Most

List Criteria: Vote up your most hated household chores

Chores. Niceties. Tasks. Those nasty and/or tedious things we have to do in life to pretend to be civilized. The things that separate us from animals. We hates them, precious. We hates them so much. But, which are the worst? The chores that you face with the enthusiasm of a firing squad? These are the most loathesome tasks and chores in our everyday lives. Vote, rank, or do both... and, as always, add any you see missing.

When it comes to cleaning up after your pets, you'd be hardpressed to find a single person, outside of your run of the mill crazy person that would enjoy doing this task. Pets are awesome to have, but can be a gargantuan pain to take care of. It is simple tasks like this that make you loathe things that you should love. Other everyday tasks that are awful include cleaning the shower, unclogging the toilet and even going to the DMV, which no one loves doing, even its employees. The common hatred of these every day tasks is what can unite people from all walks of life.
