Why do 5 loads of laundry when you can just water the plants 50 times?

I used to live in a house where 'watering the plants' meant spending two hours watering every ******* plant in my stepmom's godforsaken garden. She 'loved' gardening so much she had my siblings and I do all the 'fun' work. Like weeding, watering the plants, raking up all the leaves around her precious plants, and pretty much anything other task that didn't involve her enjoying the presence of the flowers/shrubs/trees
Laundry is probably the easiest chore. Pick up clothes, place in washer, add detergent, wait, switch to dryer, add new load to washer, wait, fold and switch, wait, etc.
I just hate the **** out of gardening

Exactly! As soon as I read '1 load of laundry=100 points' it's just, why the hell would that not be what you do? Just wash a bunch of things that are easy to put away five times.

When I began reading the list, I expected chores to be worth low numbers like that.

I would say let her take care of her own damn garden and put salt on the soil or something to **** them up.

I really truly wish I could explain how terrible this woman is when she wants to be vindictive. Which is pretty much whenever she disagrees with something you say/do.
Which is pretty much all the time
The amount of times I wish I could have told her to do her own ******* gardening are immense.
If we damaged any part of one of her 20 ish iris plants (which are perennial, mind you) she would give us a stern talking to. Which wasn't fun

Wouldn't sabotage have worked?   
   
Just look like you're completely useless and actually counter-productive to the plants' survival 'n she'll take you off the task. You'll be shouted at for being useless and dangerous 'n sent to your room or whatever - but you won't need to do the work she should frigging do herself.   
   
I did that with my dad who wanted me to help with the work around the house - he always has to fix something up or start a new project which he rarely finished. Don't get me wrong, I didn't mind doing the work, I actually thought it to be halfway interesting at one point, but it's a ******* pain when your dad's a choleric shouting at you for 24/7 for the littlest things, so what do you do to avoid it? Just make him think you're utterly useless, stupid and dangerous to work with, so he'll send you off to your room - he'll complain some, but since he's such a choleric that's always the case.

I've tried that, even with remedial ****. Her response is to show you how to do it properly every time and nag at you for not doing it right.
Never got out of it though. I appreciate your candor though, good effort

Well, I guess even if you did break some valuable plant or be extremely clumsy - break pots 'n whatever - she'd tell you to pay it off from your own money?
You could react violently 'n say it's her garden 'n she shouldn't let you touch it if you're so clumsy or whatever in that case then though... oh well, everyone's got her/his circumstances, but I feel ya as a guy who also was in a somewhat similar situation for years :/

My stepmum/stepdad never actually dared to be harsh on me after my parents divorced - well, I wasn't really a difficult kid either - so they'd never actually force me to do anything , just try to give me a guilty conscience or something when they wanted help or interfere in my habits or way of living.

I would rather not die
Let me tell you a story.
So this lady, had a tendency to voice her opinion about something she didn't like you doing in order to give you a chance to change your ways to her liking. If that didn't happen, she would pretty much slowly force you into it.
For instance, being a male who was 13 at one point (I know, surprising right?) I had a few knives. They were nothing special, except for this one. I had received it for my 13th birthday from my best friend. It was a Smith and Wesson tanto shaped knife. It was forest green, and the most bad ass thing I had (I loved the **** out of it, okay. it was sentimental)
Anyways, my stepmother, being the hormonal and vindictive ****** that she was, would tell me never to leave my knives on low counters or on my bed/floor in case my little siblings found it. Fine, valid point. But being a young teen, I was forgetful as ****.
One day, I had left it on my bed. Went to school, came back. It was gone. Not in my room, not anywhere. She would usually put the things that she took from us in her bedside table to keep it hidden, but it wasn't there either. So I asked her about it, she said she didn't know, but had made some comment like 'it was probably somewhere that it shouldn't have been'.
Essentially telling me, **** you, I threw away your ******* deadly weapon that I will not have in my house.
This **** happened with a lot of stuff. Even things that weren't suggestive or dangerous.
She would throw away clothes I liked because she thought I wore them too much. That **** sucks man. And this is the smallest of the things she would do

I just... I just wish you could understand, man.

This demon woman, I refer to as my stepmother would make the total of all of these items equal the 500 'points' necessary to be ungrounded, and make you complete each task only once.
Just so you know you ****** up

Doing the laundry would take a few days though if you let them dry normally.

I like that parenting system even though it would've taken me at least a few days to get over my pride 'n do those just for the points been helping out in my household with most of those things anyway

I'd do the kitchen related stuffz:
Clean & organize cupboards - assume there's like 3-5 cupboards, takes you half an hour for 150-250 points.
Empty+Load dishwasher is what I did all the time anyway - 65 points per day.
Clean out microwave - 40
Empty kitchen garbage+rebag - 10

On the last day then cook some easy dinner (pasta with some oil+garlick+chilly sauce - takes 4 minutes tops to prepare - , for instance), so you won't need to clean up that mess~
1st day: ~200 + 65 + 40 + 10 = ~315
2nd day: 315 + 65 = 380
3rd day: 380 + 65 + 50 = 495
Then write a letter to grandparents/uncle/aunt and you'll be 5 points over.

On the other hand: nowhere is it written that tasks can't be repeated.
So you could just like clean out the microwave properly once and 5 mins later, you just 'reclean' it quickly - rinse & repeat till you've fulfilled your quota.

For washing we obviously use one god, it'd be tiring if we didn't (o.o) , but you can't just throw all your clothes together into a dryer unless you want some surprises like... "Oh, guess I've gained some weight" 'n since we/I am too lazy to check on every different material what it says about drying, we just hang them on drying stands the word sounds like it exists till they dry, then iron & fold 'em.
(We use the guest bedroom for it during the week or hang them outside when it's summer & weekend)

Where are you from?
In the US we just toss em all in there. There are some things that can't be dried but we leave those out (not too many items) and then fold the clothes once they are done drying. You don't need to iron them if you do it right away

I actually have quite a bunch of clothes I can't throw into a dryer 'n I'm never sure how high to set the temperature which is why I rather not use it well, I'm currently 22 'n CBA checking all clothes for the 'Dryer - Yes' tags

I mainly live in Luxembourg tiny country in Europe 'n all (neighbouring) countries treat its inhabitants as criminals at the time

An island is basically a counter but in the middle of the kitchen, except for along the wall   
   
great to clear off and use for beer pong

Why would you want to do actual work. Their parents are actually quite smart, they think your in on a bargain if you do the high-points laundry instead of the trivial things. From the start they wanted you to do the laundry.
