It's 22:20.  I've been at work all day, taken a choir practice this evening, sorted the laundry and loaded the washing machine.  Suddenly, doing an online Tesco order has little appeal.  Will the world really end if I don't do it?

Here's my own tie-breaker:-

  • If I had an au-pair, would I ask her (or him! now, there's a thought) to do this particular chore right now?
So on this occasion, the answer has to be no.  No-one in their right minds would send an au-pair to Tesco at this time of night.  And if au-pairs have human rights, dignity at work, or whatever, then why not me?
