I work, do all the housework, sort out the kids and basically I do everything. Oh has started a new business where he only works 2 days a week and in his spare time he goes to the pub or golf. So today me and my dd have been ill and his family have turned unannounced, pestering me to get them brews! My oh sodded off out and after half an hour I fell asleep lol. Gods knows where his family went but they have walked through mud all over my home and they must of helped themselves in my fridge because food has been left out and the kitchen is in a right state. I've just text oh and said his family are a disgrace and I'm on strike! I'm not cleaning again! Aibu?

Yanbu, but Yabu for letting it get that bad. How can he afford to only work 2 days a week, or are you also paying for everything?

YANBU. However, YWBU to let this get to this point.

"Do you hear chickensarmpit sing, it's the song of mad inlaws,
and a murder will be done if the inlaws give her cause,
When the munching of PomBears echoes the swigging of the gin
The door will be locked to keep the family in
(And the inlaws out out out)
The blood of the inlaws will water the geraniums of chickens.

I'm paying for most things. He gave up a good job and with it a good wage. I'm fed up, I'll and I've quit smoking. Today his family have fumed me but he thinks it's ok.

Nothing at the moment.

YANBU, you shouldn't have let it get to this stage, but that's where it so now you need to stand up for yourself.

Tell him you are no longer willing to clean the house, or do his laundry and ironing. If he wants it done then he needs to recruit, pay and supervise ( as in it's eff all to do with you, so don't even ask) a cleaner who is also willing to do laundry and ironing. And stick to it.

And if the in laws visit again and he goes to leave make a big thing of how his parents are here, where the fuck is goingconfused, God, you'd never be that rude etc etc
