The millstone factor.......

As you've noticed, Mike and Liz grew up to be hopelessly inept as housekeepers. The older incompetent cowered in his attic office while leaving the mess he and the children he hid from created for his overburdened wife to deal with when she came home from work while the younger probably got all huffy because none of the evil, evil landlords she used to think were so great refused to return her cleaning deposit. So what if they had to call in an exterminator to rid themselves of tiny livestock? She couldn't be expected to spend her free time cleaning. It seems to me that there's a good reason these idiots cannot handle the simplest chore: they had a mother who let them walk all over her. Granted, the Elly of old reacted to Mike's assumption that she had to trail around after him cleaning up his messes instead of working outside the home as a bad thing but she sort of did it anyway. The end result is the creation of a sullen goof who cannot live on his own. Liz is in a similar fix; since Elly insists on doing things for her, she's sort of incapable of doing much for herself.
