Yahoo just had an article about things men shouldn't ask women to do. It's been so long I don't remember if my husband ever actually asked me to do these things or if I just took over...but I am guilty of the top 4:
#1. His laundry
#2. Buy gifts and cards for other people on his behalf
#3. Plan an entire vacation without his help
#4. Make him a sandwich
And #6 is for the kids:
#6. Be his wake-up call
In return, he takes care of the cars and major home repairs. I think it's a fair deal.
