Teenager Demands ‘Danger Money’ From Parents For Handling Dad’s Underpants When Doing The Laundry For Pocket Money

A father from Harrogate has today been left totally bamboozled by his family’s latest news.

The father has been encouraging his teenage daughter to do some chores around the house in order for her to gain some ‘life experience’ and actually earn her pocket money before she goes off to university.

However, in a cruel twist of fate, his notion has spectacularly backfired.

While loading the dishwasher and hoovering her room seems quite acceptable, she is now demanding danger money for tackling the laundry, especially her dad’s underpants.

The hapless Harrogatonian has been told, quite firmly, by his wife that he must now wash and dry his own pants before putting them in the washing basket.

The wife went on to say “I’m not having our daughter touching your shreddies with her bare hands” Realising that he was in a ‘no-win’ situation, he has reluctantly agreed to the request, but has insisted that his daughter sort out the laundry when she has taken it out of the tumble dryer.

The daughter has agreed to this on the condition that she puts a pair of socks on her hands before touching her dad’s underpants.

In an attempt to placate the family, the husband has been praised beyond all compare by his wife after colour coding the washing pegs while he was hanging out the laundry.

She has told him that he is simply brilliant at doing all aspects of the laundry, and now he is keen to take on this task on a weekly basis.

“Basically, I thought I’d give it a go while the missus was in the bath, and hey presto! She’s just so impressed that she suggested that I do it on a more permanent basis.

“It’s almost as if she doesn’t want to do it again” blustered the hapless Harrogatonian, thinking that he’s the ‘bees knees’.

She went on to tell him that she kept on “Muddling up all the silly colours and wasn’t as good as he was.

The washing line looks so very attractive now, the neighbours will be really impressed” The hopeful Harrogatonian is currently down the pub where he is telling his mates that he may well do some hoovering later on today.
