Chore Time, War Time

Sean’s after dinner chore was to wash up the dishes and tidy the kitchen.  The first thing he did after we finished dinner was to run to the bathroom and hide until I started banging and calling him, about half an hour.  That’s normal around here, both he and Ceilidh pull that one, each and every time they’re told to do the dishes.
I can’t believe that it take the kids 2 to 3 hours to wash that few dishes.  They dawdle and goof around, and what they could have had done in half an hour takes all night long.  So instead of getting their work done and having the rest of the night to the themselves, they spend the night having me yell and rant at them and we end up fighting like cats and dogs and by the end of the night none of us want to talk to each other.
Are all teens this dumb or is it just mine?
