Overwork and putting the dumb in martyrdom.

You wanna know the real problem I have with Elly complaining about how John never helps with the housework? It's not just that we have John tending to hand Elly an easy victory by sort of taking her for granted or her whining about how the only time people notice what she does is when she, for reasons beyond her control, can't do it. It isn't even that whenever they do do the housework, they find it so simple and easy to do, they simply cannot believe that it takes her as long as she says it does that irritates me the most. What bothers me is that John and the kids have gotten into the habit of letting the housework slide when she's away. That's because they've realized that she hates doing it but won't let anyone else do so; God forbid that she should be somehow replaced, right?
