Always keep several "Get Well Soon" cards on your mantelpiece - when uninvited guests arrive they'll think you've been too ill to clean!!

People who complain about my housekeeping skills are not ALLOWED back. Happened once. I am tolerant of observations of cat hair, dust balls, etc. But if "My house made you sick", stay the fuck away.
Someone learned a harsh lesson once.

I just don't like housework - if I do it the mess just comes back a couple of days later, anyway.

I work on the basis that the people who matter in my life will not be bothered because Martha Stewart has never lived here and those who bother about that kind of thing aren't really my type of people.

Another trick, if your house obviously needs painting, is to put a ladder up on the most visible side, and leave it there. This proves that you're working on it.

Unless, of course, you have neighbor kids who'd climb up and fall off, or you live in an area with a lot of unlawful entry types...

Sayyyy... that might be fun with the unlawful types. Wait until they get on the roof and then remove the ladder.

Call the cops? Noooo. Let em jump.

Around the end of WWII there were lots of "retired military" persons writing memoirs and a couple of the momentarily popular writers were former "batmen" who served as personal attendants to high ranking officers.

A couple of them passed on the tip that when pressed for time they carefully polished their officer's "pocket change" and laid it out neatly. When the officer saw that "fastidious attention to detail" they could get by with almost anything, with one guy saying his officer once commented on the coins and didn't notice there was still mud on his boots when he put them on.

Misdirection and diversion of attention are the keys (?).

I have a 1 bedroom apartment & don't have enough storage for the interests I have. Plus I HATE CLEANING.

Lots of useful things have to live on the floor - they starts in neat piles (aka mountain ranges) then becomes lava flows.

I just step around it!

Sometimes I have to clean up so I have a place for the visitor chair (aka. storage surface) so almost everything on the floor, & everything on the table & chair ends up on my bed - until the guest leaves.

Unless you have visitors with unusual experience who might be able to tell the difference, a dust bunny looks enough like a hairball that you can just "blame the cat" for almost any little untidiness.

To reinforce the explanation, grabbing a fly-swatter and attacking a piece of fluff, followed by "I thought I saw it move" should get the idea across.

A once friend had a piece of original artwork on the wall, all paisley and whorls and dots.
You had to study it quite closely to read the message.
'Fuck Housework.'

I've considered making this sign:

I'll be happy to provide you with cleaning products for you to use to make the needed improvements.

Sort of drifts in the corner, eh, Dave? I believe that I saw him propound the theory on TV, many years ago.

Ragdall, no, it was more like one of those artworks that you have to stare at until your eyes reach the right focal length/depth, and then suddenly you can see it.

As she tells it, shortly after my mother married (1960), her mother-in-law came to call and freely referred to "inspecting" her housekeeping skills. A bit of a battleaxe, my grandma.

After she had gone, my mother found a penny had been left on one of the pelmets in the living room. A pelmet is like a box which covers the top of the curtains.

My mother replaced it with two ha'pennies.
