....went for a run, ate the tea he cooked and then had a long bath. For 10 years they've had tea at our house on a Wednesday. It's not a surprise. They are teenage and older and v lazy. Came in tonight to washing not hung up as requested, remains of their lunch everywhere and 'what's for tea?'.

Aibu to think OH knows it's wednesday, should leave work a bit early and sort out the a la carte offerings they all want. I've had enough of second guessing, clearing up rtf. They are his kidskin can sort. Him and his ex have brought them up not to help so their problem. But I'm getting the cold shoulder.

YANBU. Why have you put up with this for 10 years?

If he's well enough to go to work then he's well enough to look after his kids, even if they are old enough to sort themselves out.

yadnbu- don't budge

scotchmincepie Thu 08-Jan-15 16:56:25 response to those above. WIBU tonight (OH been off work today ill and sounded pathetically grateful when I offered to cook tea) to only cook tea if the kids wash up after. And if they refuse this offer, to send them off to their mum's for tea or tell them to fend for themselves. TBF tonight it's probably only one of them - the eldest.
