It will only get worse if you don't read him the riot act now. It's entirely up to you how you divide chores in a relationship and if someone wants to be the Housewife while a partner goes out to work then that's up to them, but that doesn't sound like what you have signed up for.


I think I'm going to give this a go. I haven't actually tried sitting down with him and making a list of all the chores and pointing out that I have to do all of it as well as work and look after Reuben when I'm not working (which is more tiring than a full day in the office :giggle: ) I shall try and get him to pick out some that he's willing to do. It's definately worth giving a go and might give him a kick up the bum!

Our bins have to go to the top of the culdesac, so taking the wheelie bins up on a Sunday night is DEFINITELY a man job - they're too damn heavy!!!

Lol that was the last thing he dropped doing. I found 12 bin bags in the shed - yes 12! And 8 recycling! And had to do 5 trips to the end of our lane to put them all out upon finding them :evil:

erm he does nothing really, well I say nothing but he does half of something very badly then leaves it half done so he can sit and have a coffee :x I do everything around here.

today I tidied up our wardrobe (most of the mess his stuff :roll: ) and he actually turned round to me and said 'oh I am glad to see that's been done since it's been driving me nuts for ages' !!??!! if it's been driving him nuts why didn't he do it :x :furious: :furious: :furious: :gaah:

I feel your pain - mine told me he'd muck out our bunnies before we leave to go on holiday tomorrow - just been out and they haven't been done. That was his one job to do. I have done everything else for it inc loading up the bloody car. :x :x :x :x :x Off i go mucking out bunnies at 9pm. Gaaahhh! :gaah: :gaah: :gaah: :gaah:

You see I wouldn't stand for that at all - there would be one almighty unholy row and he would be frogmarched out to do said bunnies!

Is he ok? Inability to keep on top of chores can be a sign of depression - or maybe he's just a lazy f***er
