FOR BRITS living with family, friends or a partner, new research has revealed the top bugbears that cause them to bicker.
A survey of 1,021 UK adults carried out by leading household appliances retailer, AppliancesDirect.co.uk,revealed that 66% of Brits admit to having disagreements over the household with their cohabitants.
61% of respondents claim that disputes occur in the home between one another at least once a week.
The washing up took the top spot as the thing that causes the most arguments in the home, with more than half of the votes (52%).
Another cause of squabbles for residents was the temperature in the home, with 43% admitting they argue over the central heating.
A further 38% revealed that they have fallen out with somebody at home over what to watch on the television.
More than 1 in 3 (34%) said that leaving the lights on causes disputes in the home.
Losing the remote control (21%) rounded off the list of the top five bugbears in the home which causes families to argue.
Mark Kelly, marketing manager at AppliancesDirect.co.uk comments: “The research shows there are some issues in the home which we just can’t seem to agree on and can be a frequent cause of rows, such as the washing up or leaving the lights on. We are not always going to agree on everything and arguments over the home are always going to be a common factor, so coming to a compromise is a good solution.”
According to the survey, those aged 45 - 54 years old are the worst culprits when it comes to arguing in the home, with 73% regularly having quarrels.
