I only work 2 nights a week, soooo I'm still home all day lol



I put his crap in piles and leave it there, he usually takes the hint when I follow him around while he's carrying his pile, and snap at him when he tries to put it down some where else :roll:

I clean up after him! It makes me angry sometimes when it's something so small. Like, putting the jelly back in the fridge. >.<



But on the weekends he's really great about cleaning. He cleans our room and LO's room like spotless, organizes, does the dishes, helps with laundry, makes the bed.



But weekdays, he leaves stuff everywhere.

Both but he only picks up what he wants to. He practically had a maid growing up though. I'm trying to change his way of thinking when it comes to messes.

I clean up after him. He's never lived on his own so he's never had to clean up after himself. At the end of the day it isn't a big deal to me. He'll do something if I ask him to. He isn't not doing it to be a jerk, he just honestly doesn't think about it. It drove me nuts at first, but it's one of the things I've decided just isn't worth a fight about.

oh grosssss.
a couple weeks ago the kids 'n i went to my parents house, and dude has his buddy (but this dude is like 50 yrs old) over to watch the hockey game..by the time we get home, he's up in bed, and there's like.. paper towels in the sink, garbage all over the living room, food left out and open... i almost lost it.
like, he comes home to a house everyday after i have kiddos playing in it all day and there's no mess to be seen..but two grown men? :x :x

Quoting Amber :]:" yes! He's like this. But every day. He will put trash in the sink. drives me insane! It's just stupid ... [snip!] ... the sink. The sad part is, he's lived on his own before. I would have hated to see what that apartment looked like. :shock:"

im always picking up fter him, dont think he realises how messy he is. if he takes his socks off he puts them NEXT to the washing basket nstead of in it, he just chucks rubbish next to the bin instead of in it, doesnt wipe up the bench after he makes food or put stuff away. oh well, im used to picking up after people.

i would go nuts!
my kids clean up better than my dude does, they use the dishwasher, etc etc.
and i'm always worried his bad habits could rub off on them.
but so far, so good.

My SO doesn't stick it in the sick...he tosses it on the counter :x and half the time it's the counter where all he has to do is turn the eff around and the trash can is right there! He throws his socks on the floor next to the hamper...or the bed if it's his night off. DS is 16-months and makes less of a mess, I swear! With SO if I ask him on his day off to do something he usually will, or he will procrastinate til it pisses me off and I do it.
