The University of Housework COVID Christmas Gift Guide
Updated: Oct 8, 2020
So here we are. None of us wanted to be here, but still. Here we are.
Christmas is approaching of the worst year in history. Forest fires, the demise of Kobe Bryant, Trump not being impeached and the rather obvious elephant in the room, the COVID-19 pandemic.
COVID-19 has wreaked havoc on all of our lives. Whether you've been fortunate enough to escape until this point with your families and friends still safe and well, sadly we still have no end to this epic horror show in sight.
Now with Christmas approaching, you are presented with the prospect of a harsh winter locked indoors as our Boris moves slowly but surely towards a full scale shut down of our beloved sanctuaries, the pubs. Remember how you just about got through the last lock-down without killing someone in your house? Because we remember it all too clearly.
When you spend so much time with someone, no matter how much you love and adore that person (cough), you will uncover little inadequacies that drive you insane. It doesn't matter if it starts as a pet peeve, at the end of 8 weeks of lock-down it will be all you can think about.
But no matter, it wont be that bad this time. Will it???
With that in mind, we at the University of Housework have pulled together a rather nifty (and unashamedly self-promoting) Christmas gift guide for you. We've thought about the last lock-down and presented you with Christmas present options that not only mean you don't need to leave the comfort of your living room to buy them, they may also just provide you with a solution better than murder or marriage counselling.
In release one of the guide, we deal with gifts for men (and boys).
How many times have you gone into the bathroom and been presented with a scene that looks like someone has had an accident with a hose? Even worse, how many times have you gone into the bathroom and just sat down without checking? The realization that you've sat in pee hitting you at the same time as you are overcome with rage.
The University of Housework has dedicated a course of it's current mini-series collection to solving that issue. The Toilet Training Refresher is obviously aimed at men who struggle with aim. We talk the culprit through some handy tips and tricks for not driving the females in their home to a life on the run following a grizzly murder.
The course will take around 10-15 minutes and will provide the student with a lovely electronic certificate to mark the achievement. Excellent.
How many times have you gone into the bathroom and witnessed a dirty set of boxer shorts in the middle of the floor? Even if they are right next to the washing basket? It's almost like the washing basket has a force field around it stopping male clothes being put in it.
The University of Housework has again dedicated a course of it's current mini-series collection to solving that issue. We talk the student through guidance on how to circumvent this mythical washing basket force field and start putting their washing in the correct storage location on a regular basis. Not around it, not on top of it, in it!
Same deal as the Toilet Training Refresher, 10-15 minutes and an electronic University of Housework diploma on graduation.
We could have also suggested some of our full courses, such as Dishwasher Operation. But as these courses take around 25-30 minutes and we didn't think this was perfectly matched to the average male attention span...
All our courses are COVID secure, meaning you don't have to social distance or risk the dreaded track and trace phone call in order to purchase them. Ideal.
Come back next week for our next installment of the COVID Christmas Gift Guide. We may even approach gifts for women.
