Steven Fabian: This is That’s What He Said where Tango gets guys talking about sex, dating, make-ups and break-ups, and I'm Steven Fabian and today, we’re taking our That’s What He Said topics o the street, this episode pitching in. Why don’t men help out all that much around the house? Mike: That’s a good question—we hired a cleaning lady. Steven Fabian: You hired a cleaning lady—good answer. His solution is they should hire a cleaning lady. Female: Yes, all for it. Female: No. You should help out. Female: I think you should pick up the sponge and clean it yourself. Female: They should help out a little bit but they tend to get in the way. Female: To save money, the economy is bad. Female: Do your own work. It’s not hard. It’s good to have that in your lifestyle. David: There was a time when she said, she’s going to try in and do the laundry, but that never really happen. I still do the laundry and the dishes. Paul: There’s probably a lot I don’t do. Just generally speaking, I got a good life but I'm make my wife coffee every morning. Andrew: She likes to cook and she’s not a very good cleaner, so it works out pretty good. Steven Fabian: Oh, some frightening words, she’s right here folks. What’s you’re least favorite chore around the house? Mike: Cleaning the bathroom. Paul: I think I really hate cleaning the bathroom. Steven Fabian: That’s what she’s for right? Paul: No, it’s not. Andrew: You know, maybe I cook dinner. I get my shirts iron, right? Or maybe I do the swiffering. Steven Fabian: To be honest, who doesn’t like to do the swiffering, because I personally love it. Female: He’s going have to do a little bit more than swiffering. Female: As long as he chipped in a little bit more than that, that id fine with me. Female: No, he needs to pitch in about 50/50. Steven Fabian: More than just swiffering? Female: Yeah. Female: It’s not enough. Female: I love swiffering. Steven Fabian: So, you’d fight about the swiffering? Female: It might be a battle. Female: I was going to say that’s my favorite thing to do. So I would probably fight him for it too. If he wants to do the dishes, I'm not for it, but swiffering, no—that’s for me. Mike: If it requires a power cord, I usually do it. If it doesn’t then that’s her job. Steven Fabian: Well, like it or not, that’s what guys think. This has been That’s What He Said.
