I do a bit of part time work for a lady at her house. Twice now I have been working and her 20 year old son has risen from bed and swanned by me in his boxers to go down stairs for his brekky.

AIBU to find this a bit bizarre. I am often about the house and we I haven't worked there years or anything- hence i don't know them well.

I get very uncomfortable at a bloke in his tight tiny boxers and a tshirt strutting about. Am I a prude? I mentioned it to dh and he was raging! Said he would never do this.

My son is the same. Always wandering round in his boxers no matter who's there. It's is home. Why do you think it's strange? It's only the same as wearing shorts

Your H was raging, you say ?

Why ?

This is the 20yo's house. You have no say in how he dresses (or not) as long as he isn't physically touching you

If you don't like it, let somebody else have the job. Haven't you seen a pair of male legs before ?

Yabu ( and prudish) how do you cope with swimming pool or the beach if a man in boxers and a t-shit makes you react like this?

Dp always strips down to his boxers when he is at home, that's how he feels comfortable.

Why was your husband raging? My husband will walk around the house in his boxers if someone's around, and his friend was walking around ours when he was going to the toilet etc when he stayed recently. I don't see a problem.

Sorry but you're over reacting completely and so is your dh.

Are they boxers with a "flap"? If not, whats the difference between them and a pair of normal shorts, or indeed, swimming trunks at the beach? Is he a good looking lad?

You're lucky he had a t-shirt on! At that age, my younger brother (still living with my parents at the time) was almost always just in boxers at home no matter who was there - he even came to the dinner table that way!

I don't think YABU for feeling uncomfortable, but if it really bothers you, give up the job.

Unless he starts 'accidentally' flashing you his teeny knob it's not an issue that he's wearing shorts

Why would your husband be raging about this - that's weird

ThinkIveBeenHacked Fri 09-May-14 18:28:33

It is his house and most lads of that age wear the bare minimum out of sheer laziness

YABU and your DH is being an arse.

KeepOnKeepingOnAndOnAndOnAndOn Fri 09-May-14 18:36:49

But they're pants more than boxers - teeny tiny things

KeepOnKeepingOnAndOnAndOnAndOn Fri 09-May-14 18:37:51

Ha! laurie

His house, and he's barely out of his teens, it's just what they do.

ThatBloodyWoman Fri 09-May-14 18:40:33

You ma5 be unused to it, but I presume he is used to 'help' in the house and has grown up with it.

Boxers give good coverage -not much worse than shorts and no top.

You'll get used to it - you can't expect him to change!

Onesleeptillwembley Fri 09-May-14 18:40:54

I'd be more concerned about your weird repressed husband. What's he overcompensating for?

DrainPhobic Fri 09-May-14 18:42:00

I wouldn't like it and it would make me feel uncomfortable. Maybe I'm old fashioned and/or prudish. It's his house though.

ThatBloodyWoman Fri 09-May-14 18:42:00

Sorry, just seen the 'pants more than boxers'.

Even so - 'his house, his rules' I'm afraid, so long as he's not crossing any lines.

SteadyEddie Fri 09-May-14 18:43:41

Just count yourself lucky its not a nudist house.

Then your DH might explode.

Forgettable Fri 09-May-14 18:43:41

It's no biggie <fnaaaar>

What I want to know is why is your husband cross, is it because you might come over all COOOOOOGAR* and want to ravish the bloke? Ergo you cannot be trusted?

*yes yes I know it's cougar, 'k, but fer comedy perps the spelling above is just peachy

KeepOnKeepingOnAndOnAndOnAndOn Fri 09-May-14 18:44:18

one sleep > please explain that comment? Dh Overcompensating ... Uh What, what?

parakeet Fri 09-May-14 18:45:56

It's no more than you'd see on the beach or at the swimming pool - think speedos.

I think you're enjoying making your husband rage to be honest.

KeepOnKeepingOnAndOnAndOnAndOn Fri 09-May-14 18:46:51

Forgettable > I am too young to be a cooooogar! As I can be trusted smile

magpiegin Fri 09-May-14 18:48:15

I still don't understand why your husband is raging? Why does he even care?

KeepOnKeepingOnAndOnAndOnAndOn Fri 09-May-14 18:48:49

Parakeet> thats am integrate onv observation you make of our relationship, given you have only got minute details of our relationship from this post! There is plenty i do not tell me hubby as I know it would make him jelous. This is not one of them, the guy is young and I was laughing at mysel being horrified by it when telling dh. I expected dh to laugh too. He didnt.

KeepOnKeepingOnAndOnAndOnAndOn Fri 09-May-14 18:50:22

Dh trusts me. He just doesn't trust other men. We are both jealous at times. Admittedly I was stupid telling him this
