Paper Plates - Captcha Challenge

I'm breaking out another ... this time out I got 'paper plate'. Read my previous one here about the phrase 'learn the ropes' .

Back in the day, we used paper plates a lot. That was the time when we didn't have any household help. Both my mom and dad were working and my and my younger sister were still at school studying. No one among the family was crazy washing the dishes. Everyone was fine doing a different household chore. I didn't mind cleaning the house and by clean I mean sweeping the floor and dusting the furniture. My dad was fine tending the garden. My younger sister also helped by doing those odd small jobs. My mom took care of washing the laundry and doing the cooking. However, no one and I mean no one volunteered to do the dishes. We tried scheduling the task but everyone was trying to get away from doing it by giving excuses. Eventually, my mom settled the matter by purchasing paper plates. No more dishes to wash!!!

Now that I think of this story, I find it really funny. LOL!!!

Is there one chore that no one ever bothers to do in your household?

Dishes just mount. We use paper plates only occasionally when there is a party. But these days caterers handle everything and they bring their own crockery and stuff.
