H does this when he is ill - often there are dirty plates in the sink so you only find the deposits later, in the plughole, when you are washing up.
He did it this morning a few times and the last time did not bother turning the tap on afterwards either.

It's beyond disgusting.
It's grounds for divorce.

Ugh yanbu at all. My husband is guilty of this even when he's not ill. Absolutely disgusting when I have to clean a huge sticky dribble of it from down the side of the sink <shudder>

Truly grim.

Fucking vile I would wonder what other habits this creature possesses.

That's disgusting. Isn't there any kitchen roll or tissues he can use and then put in the bin?

Why do some people think this OK? It's far beyond romance being dead angry.

No tissues in the kitchen / living area (will get some) but he would use the sink anyway.

Utterly vile. If dh did this he would definitely only do it once because I would hurt him severely

If I have confronted him in the past he has got annoyed hmm.

Get annoyed back. That is one repulsive habit.

I think it's ok if done discretely and then completely washed away afterwards. Otherwise, no it's disgusting and show's little respect to you, especially if you've admonished him in the past.

I'm just getting over a chest infection and I have done this, this week.
BUT I've removed the plug, been very careful where its gone and then washed the sink afterwards.

Leaving it, is disgusting - does he want the rest of the house to get sick too?

Even your title made me queasy my dad was a miner so his chest is fecked he does it but least he rinses it away leaving it is grim

BillBrysonsBeard Tue 22-Mar-16 09:11:07

If it's done in an empty sink and washed away properly then I can't see the issue- I've done it myself. But obviously you're finding his gloop so he isn't cleaning up after himself... Yuk! YANBU.

Ew. Ew ew ew.

Who doesn't wash their spit away? It's like leaving toilet unflushed. I've got the tail end of a nasty cough and I do spit phlegm into (empty) sink. But no one would ever know because I wash it away!

It's vile but better than those awful louts you see gobbing onto the road, lol he's a man, he's poorly, say no more, all decorum goes outta the window then. Think you ought to start boiling your mooncup in a saucepan that'll teach him!

TheNumberfaker Tue 22-Mar-16 09:17:53

Yuk. FIL does this too. Beyond disgusting!

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Tue 22-Mar-16 09:26:02

Urgh.The dirty beast. I've just nearly vomited, at the thought of that. WTF does that. Has he never heard of spitting it out in a tissue or down the toilet.
