"I don't want something that makes coffee, picks up drycleaning, and feeds the dog unless it also cuddles"

If my iPhone/computer cuddled, I would marry it.

So, generally I don't find it rude at all. Only in very rare circumstances. It'd have to be pretty egregious.

Wow! My demographic is not represented in the comments yet at all! The demographic of actively enjoying mess, and only ever cleaning to prevent crossing of the "biohazard" line.

My divorced parents never taught me to clean or had me do chores. My mom lived in a relatively neat household and had a cleaning lady or a maid to help out. My dad is incredibly messy and had a very cluttered and messy house. I experienced both, and I prefer the messy house. I don't feel "lost" or "confused" that I never learned anything about house cleaning from my mom -- I mean using a vacuum or a washing machine etc is all pretty straightforward when you do it for the first time. If there's something I don't know, I just use google.

But, knowing how to clean the house and having any desire to clean it is very different. I only feel the need to vacuum when dust-bunnies get large enough to name. I have clothes all over my floor and clutter accumulates on every horizontal surface. And you know what? I love it. I am unashamed, unrepentant, and have no desire to make my domicile safe for children (hopefully the hazards will keep children FAR AWAY from me!). And maintaining the standard of living described above is fairly effortless -- I estimate I spend only 2 hours cleaning per month.

Now you all must be wondering why I'm on AT... but since I throw my clothes on the floor, you can still always see the nice furniture!
