Are you talking about my DH wink

Oh crikey, YANBU. My DW is a South African and she does this all the time. So do her family. I believe they do this because in South Africa one can hire a cleaning fairy for less then 10 pounds a day.

The problem for us (as I tell her) is we don't live in South Africa.

My teenagers do this. I call them back to rectify it, you should do likewise.

yes it's a pain but the answer is to say 'I need you to clean the crumbs. I feel frustrated as I'd only just wiped the surface' instead of 'you are lazy and you are disrespectful and so clean the crumbs'

I think it was great Monty wish I had thought of that

Pfffft green

I am a bit blush at my behavior with the butter (OK it was utterly butterly or something).

We're still friends grin

My DS also has a habit of peeing on the toilet seat because he is too lazy to lift the fecking lid. I only find out when I sit on the seat and get a wet arse bum blush

My ex exdh left crumbs in the butter all the time (this was miner compare to other sins). I stuffed my engagement ring in the butter, walked in the pub (yes, the pub, after cooking and all that for him again) and shoved tub in front of him and walked off.

It was a long time ago smile

or rubbish left on top of the bin. Is it really that difficult to put your foot on the pedal?

Greenkit Fri 25-Jan-13 02:48:33

OMG this drives me mad....

Crumbs left, butter left out and no-one, NO-ONE can put plates etc IN the dishwasher, no it gets put NEXT to the dishwasher angry

YANBU. Sends me apoplectic. Irrationally OTT, I know, but there you go.

It is disrespectful. It says, my time and energy is more important than yours. I still tell people about the ex-H of someone I knew who used to do this while I was providing FREE childcare for his DC. Walk in, destroy kitchen, walk out. Fucking lazy, horrible, nasty behaviour.

Not unless I do it!

Has my daughter come to your house? She is incapable of using a bin.

If I had a pound for every time I wail "Noooooo! Not on the granite!" I'd be rich.

NannyPlumIsMyMum Thu 24-Jan-13 23:12:59

No YANBU.

I too get vv annoyed.

Joiningthegang Thu 24-Jan-13 23:12:56

Annoying yep, thoughtless, yep , disrespectful?????

Did he eat cakes which were less than perfect and destined for the bin too?

HoHoHoNoYouDont Thu 24-Jan-13 23:12:37

Agree SP. That's manky.

Leaving toast crumbs in butter should be punishable by death

HoHoHoNoYouDont Thu 24-Jan-13 23:09:52

Does the mess get cleared once the sandwich has been eaten?

AnonAndOnAndOn Thu 24-Jan-13 23:09:22

NO. YANBU. This sort of thing drives me crazy. Very disrespectful. Who do they expect will clean it up? The cleaning fairy?

city1984 Thu 24-Jan-13 23:07:00

Disrespectful.
Making a sandwich and leaving crumbs and knives on worktop I had wiped minutes or leaving empty can and canopener on side or empty wrappers. Don't want to keep nagging but it should not be up to me to do it.I am a sahm so bulk of housework fair enough but not this. Aibu.
