To leave the toilet for DH to clean up?

Had a crappy day today, had to have my cat put to sleep this morning then go to work.

Just got in, DH is in bed with flu, went to the loo & it is spattered with shit, I mean totally. AIBU to let him clean it up tomorrow? It's not the only loo we have, I can avoid it for now.

If he actually has flu, then I would clean it. Actual flu is appaling.

If he has a bad cold then he can clean it. Especially if he is in the habit of leaving things dirty.

If it is just a bad cold with 'flu like symptoms' then I have zero sympathy for either of you, and I wish a huge dose of actual flu on anyone who uses the word in vein.

He's ill for gods sake. I'd clean it up. If he wasn't ill I'd force him to use his toothbrush to clean it wink

I think normally I would just clean up, but I've had it with everything today. We've both had this latest cold bug but suddenly he's at death's door while I'm recovering. He's left the toilet covered in shit before and after this morning I'm just tired, upset & grumpy.

I'll clean it in a bit, but will be having words once he's recovered.

He left it because he knows you will clean it up, flu does not excuse leaving shit for the wife to deal with.

Manky pig.

I had bone fide flu last autumn, and I was very ill indeed. In bed for two weeks and could hardly do anything but sweat and cough.
The antibiotics and steroids I was on gave me horrendous diarrhoea.

I did clean up after I used the loo though, (probably because my mum didn't do it for me,) and I'm a "the buck stops with me" kind of person. I would also be mortified if anyone had to do that for me. Even if I puke my guts up, I clean up and use Milton wipes on things like taps and door knobs- no point everyone getting sick. That's a basic level of hygiene.
My 9year old knows not to puke anywhere except the loo, and to clean up afterwards.

I'd let him clean up his own mess, tomorrow and use the other loo.

Bring him a cuppa and read him the riot act - you know how to put it best so he gets the message that you aren't there to clean up his shit, and he's well able to do it, even if he's poorly.

Oh and I'm so very sorry about your little puddy. flowers

Close the door on it. He can clean up when he gets up tomorrow. Doesn't sound like he has actual flu.

I'm so sorry about your darling cat thanks

What Phal said is what happens here.

Gob-smacked at the posters regularly cleaning up after their husbands because they refuse.

Thank you all for the kind words about my cat. We knew it was coming but I didn't think it was imminent.
