Quoting I Stab People:" He won't change. Leave him if you can't deal with it"


lol..I had to laugh at this and agree all at the same time :)



My SO is pretty useless with housework, but he is far from lazy.



He will put his clothes no shit...2 feet beside the hamper. He will leave his empty take out coffee cup on the counter RIGHT beside the garbage.



But, he does all the 'man like' work, cuts the lawn, fixes things, shovels snow, fixes my car etc.
And I NEVER have to complain about how he cares for his son, his son is his life.




But he will leave dishes in the sink all weekend while Im at work. Ive never seen him vaccum or clean a bathroom.



Really, Ive accepted it. Ive been with him for 9 years, he aint going to change. But I do have fun with it. I let all his clothes pile up infront of the dresser so he cant open it. I dont wash any of his soccer gear so I can watch him run around like an idiot the night before a game looking for shit and I dont wash dishes before the weekend (when Im going to work) just so he has more to look at and by sunday he breaks down and does them. :)

This is me and my SO to a T. We even have the same age difference. My dh is lazy as f**k and also blames it on his personality. Drives me nuts. He's goin to become a bad influence and our kids aren't going to pick up after themselves if he keeps it up. Once I went on a cleaning strike and I let it get nasty and then he got the hint and kinda began cleaning up after himself.

I'm literally at this point. Seems like after I've done 10 loads of laundry, have it all folded and put up I turn around and my SO has a pile of his clothes laying in the living room by his computer and my oldest has 10 different shirts thrown everywhere because he feels he has to change his shirt all the time. And don't even get me started on dishes. I'm really tempted to start getting paper plates/bowls and plastic forks/spoons/knives just so I can have some form of relief lol.

I don't think I'd go for plastic plates and cups to make it easier on dishes. Trust me, I've tried it, and then you just end up with trash all of the house, a full trashcan, and a SO that refuses to take out the trash.....
