To make assignments fair such that responsibility assignment is clear and equitable, I have posted schedules such as:
Nov - April: John
May - October: Robert
Some people think this isn't fair since this schedule only applies to our unheated house in Gloucester, so other methods have to be used.
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.
