To start cutting stuff off like the playstation plug and DH's dangly bits?

DH works from home. He sent me out on a wild goose chase of errands he couldn't do himself which wasted my entire morning (places he sent me to were shut). He finished work and then said he was going to play on the play station "for a little while". DD goes to my parents after school on a Monday and comes back at about 8pm, which is when my OU tutorial starts (online). Just before I asked him to put the oven on at 8:40 so that dinner could go in when I finish at 9pm.

Come downstairs and he's done fuck all. DD's school stuff is all over the floor and he's lying on the sofa shooting fucking aliens. There are plates and glasses all over the kitchen and a clean load of dishes in the dishwasher. Oven is off and stone cold, so dinner is still cooking, after I've done the dishwasher and cleared the surfaces.

He is STILL lying on the sofa shooting aliens. I also fucking annoyed!!!!!!

I feel your pain. men can be such lazy tosspieces. no advice except maybe have a screaming row sensible discussion about prioritising housekeeping over game playing.

Make your dinner and leave him to fend for himself x

Agree. Tidy your stuff and make your food. He's clearly not hungry or arsed about living in a mess.

Thanks. I'm very messy myself so it's not that that annoys me. It's that that fucking console takes priority over EVERYTHING else!

I threw his dinner at him and refused to go into that room. When he asked why I told him.

(I've realised that he's got hours and hours of TV and films downloaded for him to watch. If I want to watch something while I do the ironing I get "can't you watch it on the iPad?" Ooh,I'm so sick of him!)

'the ironing' do your own then watch what you want and tell him to use I-pad.

YANBU.
My DH is a gamer and oh my god it was an issue early on and on accession still can be. The golden rule I put in place was there was no console time when the kids are up, as he'd stress if they got in the way or ignore them, plus he had to help with jobs beforehand. It doesn't stop him being an ignorant fucker when he gets it on but I want to scream at him less plus the fact I've made it perfectly clear I will fuck him off if pushed to the limit has worked wonders grin
