今日美语MP3:家务 Chores

家务
Chores

【intro 今日导读】

No one likes to do them, but we have to. Chores are just one of those daily tasks that everyone must do to live comfortably. When we were little, we had easy chores like putting away our own toys. As we grew older, we began to have more and more chores.

Even though chores might not be difficult to do, they must be done often and are not fun. Wouldn't you rather be going out with friends than cleaning your bathroom or folding laundry? People might even fight over chores when they live together because it is such an annoying task.

Gary and Julie talk about having to share the responsibility of doing chores. Find out more in today's English lesson about keeping a clean house.

【Dialogue 情景对话】

Gary:  While you were growing up, did you have the responsibility of cleaning up your room? Or maybe when you lived with other people, there was an expectation on you that you would do a certain thing in the house to keep a space clean?

Julie:  When I was a kid, I'm sure I pitched in. I wasn't really a slacker kid. But I've lived in a lot of houses with roommates where we've had a chore wheel. Have you ever seen a chore wheel?

Gary:  I've heard of that. How does that work?

Julie:  Like one week my job would be to clean the bathroom. And then the wheel would be turned on Sundays. And then the next week, my job would be to mow the lawn.

Gary:  Oh, interesting. And now, whenever I help out I feel like it's the least I can do to help clean up after party. Or to help clean up after dinner.

Julie:  You would be an ideal housemate, because I have lived with people who have this sense of entitlement. Like they don't have to do anything… they can just sit back and expect everything to be done for them.

Gary:  Well, I hope that you'll live with some other people who are treating you better in the near future.

Julie:  Me, too.
