Today, I washed the dishes for my mom while she was out, as they seemed to be piling up. I accidentally sliced my hand with a knife in the process. After a trip to the hospital, it was revealed she'd been leaving those dishes there "to teach dad a lesson." FML

The point is so his dad does the dishes, not to give him more reason not to.

Edit: I think I misread your comment if I did, sorry but if not the other comment stands lol.

Now, I'm napkin'na be too long here. OP's dad should have manned the fork up and done his own chores so OP wouldn't have to. If this continues, spoon OP will be covered in stitches. He or she is probably eating with a spork right now.

(the spork one was lame, I know, but I tried my best. :D)

Well obviously you sat around while they piled up as well? Unless of course you were just visiting there or something but if not well don't let it pile up so much next time!

Perhaps OP has other regular household chores that she does, and in that case it wouldn't be her 'job' to do them in the first place. Note that the FML says mom was trying to teach dad a lesson, not OP and dad.

Understood, but growing up I always had many chores(I grew up on a farm). So I had chores everyday but if we saw something that needed to be done well we did it. That's like if you work somewhere and you see a piece of trash somewhere you don't just walk by it cause you're not the janitor. You pick it up.

If I found some trash on the floor I would obviously pick it up, but if I saw that floor needs vacuuming I would just remind my dad to do it since it's his chore. Yes, I'm lazy.

Same haha. I point out to my partner when his chores need doing. I might occasionally do his stuff but I've got my own housework to be getting on with lol.
