List Rules 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. They are the things that separate us from animals. We hate them all,  but which are the worst? You know, the chores that you face with the enthusiasm of a firing squad. These are the most loathsome tasks and chores in our everyday lives. Vote up your least favorites, and, as always, add any you see missing.

When it comes to cleaning up after your pets, you'd be hard pressed to find a single person who 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.

Let's all revel in our hate. Together.
