A man who did the washing up for a change is waiting for some sort of ceremony in his honour, it has emerged. 

40 year old Electrician Pete Bowen decided to get stuck into a pile of dishes after his favourite UKIP mug still had last night’s Cup-a-Soup in it.

Bowen said: “My wife’s been ill which in itself is selfish, she’s literally left me to fend for myself.

“See, we’re a lot like Theresa May and her husband as we have designated jobs. I go to work, come home, scratch myself and nap on the sofa. She goes to work, sorts the kids out and does all the other girl jobs.

“I did my normal daily routine of chucking everything in the sink, but then it was still there in the morning and when I got back from work. It doesn’t usually happen like that.

Bowen added: “So while Her Majesty lives the high life in bed with flu, I’m on day two of chicken soup and Kingsmill.

“I cleaned it all with a cloth I found in the bathroom, it was quite fun actually, especially when I poured the milk in the water and it made it go white at the beginning.

“I told her ‘done the washing up’ and she had the gall ask me for a glass of water and a biscuit. I repeated, ‘done the washing up’ a bit louder. Nothing.

“If she can be bothered to get her lazy arse out of bed I’m sure I’ll receive some sort reward. Keeping the baby quiet all night perhaps? Sometimes it wakes me up so if she could get on top of that it’d be helpful.”
