To make assignments fair such that responsibility assignment is clear and equitable, I have posted schedules such as:
Nov - April: John
May - October: Robert

The breakfast convention is that he who gets up first makes breakfast and the other one does the dishes. This morning I was second and at the end of breakfast while shuffling newspaper sections, I merely said: Let's see... while trying to think of a reason to change the rule for the day. rsc immediately replied: No!

This is what happens after 31 years.
