R U JOKING, GRANDAD BLOG 18th October 2017
They’re common household arguments that most of us have had, or will have at some point – and now a new poll claims to finally have the answers.
A poll, conducted by a home interiors firm Hillary’s, asked more than 2,000 people who live with their long-term partner about a range of hotly-debated topics.
They were also asked ‘Do you like to do/have things a certain way at home, but find that your partner thinks differently?’ with more than two thirds of people answering yes.
Of the things people admitted to disagreeing with their partner about, the most common was where things should be stored, how to store certain things and how quickly things should be done.
The people taking part in the survey were given a list of products and asked how or where they should be stored or used.
- Toilet roll, hanging to the front – 78% (agreed that this was correct)
- Ketchup, in the fridge – 77%
- Blinds, tilted upwards internally – 69%
- Pillows, partly under the duvet – 65%
- Potatoes, in the kitchen cupboard – 61%
- Mayonnaise, in the fridge – 60%
- Eggs, in the kitchen cupboard – 54%
- Door mat, outside the front door – 54%
- Bread, in a bread bin – 53%
- Toothbrush, on the sink – 51%

The survey also revealed that the most common argument for couples was making the bed, with 21% of people saying they had bickered over this. The second most frequent cause of arguments was over doing the washing up.
