    Living and visiting here are very different

    What's a real chore here is signing up for any basic service, like getting a mobile phone, or joining a health club. The amount of paperwork involved for such basic things is astounding. That's a chore I could live without.

    Seriously: for me the worst thing is calculating prices, perparing quotes or pitch reports, taking care of billing, accountancy and all other finance/administration related paperwork.

    Dishes, yup, but my husband and I have a nice little arrangement. I do all of the cooking and he does the dishes. He does it so well too. ; )

    It's between dishes and vacuuming. My issue is that I'm tall and have to bend down a slight bit to properly do dishes, and by the time I'm done my back aches some. It's not cool to have an aching back at age 25, even if for a couple of minutes, so yeah.

    Vacuuming is just annoying.

    Sleeping !

    It takes up so much of the time you could be using for something useful !

    Only kidding. I love lying in bed and dozing, especially in the mornings when the bed is at the perfect temperature and all comfy.

    Chores is sorting out a "coding issue" when it actually turns out to be a user issue ! p.e.b.k.a.c !

    no, i adopted it when someone used it in a thread we had a year ago about whether one should reveal one's true identity on teh interwebs

    i'm one of those people who believes in letting you know exactly who i am and where i live and how to get in touch with me

    not giving out any pseudonyms or fake data... giving out my real stuffs

    Non-automated marketing like network marketing and social marketing. I just can't bring myself to do it every day.

    It's a toss up between content writing (creativity is not one of my strong points) and doing the dishes.

    Blogging and link building. I've had more fun doing other things. Using the weed wacker isn't the best thing I've ever done either.

    +1. I've hated going thru SERPs for clients to see how they rank and found a great automated solution. They don't pay me enough to actually write it's name ;-)

    I am pretty good at DOCUMENTATION. my biggest bane would be designing. I hate designing. Although the designs I have managed to do were complimented. I cant' quite be happy with any design I do and keep on redoing it and redoing it. Never happy. But usually my friends say I over do it. So i have managed to only do few designs. So I programming and Documentation and troubleshooting is my thing
