To have just lost it at DH

DH doesn't do much housework or anything that helps our household run smoothly on a regular basis.

He says his reason for not cleaning the kitchen or the bathroom is that "he doesn't want to/ care" (HIS WORDS)

I do the majority of the housework, childcare and organisation and 100% of the cooking and cleaning PLUS WORKING 5 days a week as he does. He does wash up but won't wipe side boards or sweep kitchen floor.

Anyway in the past month he has made 3 passive aggressive comments about the "random piles of my shit" causing him to not be able to find things.

When I looked the so called "random piles of 'my' shit" were a) a pile of towels and bedding that I had washed and folded b) a pile of his daughter's clean clothes c) a pile of our daughter's clothes that again I have laundered but not put away. Oh yeah his clean clothes too that I washed.

I lost it at him tonight because I find it very galling to hear him complain about my mess even though he doesn't help with it. He says that he can't because he doesn't know what is clean and what is dirty.

I told him that his attitude of "I don't care about the mess is why I don't do housework" is bollocks because he is busy making pass ag comments to me about "my" mess.

I swore at him, told him that he is like a lazy teenager and that his attitude towards household work is threatening our marriage.

He has gone to bed saying "I won't say when I feel annoyed in future then".

GAAAAHH

AIBU to go mad a him?

TIA.

YABU to do everything and be a martyr

PS Get a cleaner and/or a divorce

Pick up all his crap around the place, put dirty an clean clothes etc into one black bag, leave it at his side of the bed.
Come Monday when he wants clean shirt/clothes from you, just say I didn’t want to do them!
Mine used to leave his clothes where he dropped them, I had repeatedly asked for them to go inthe washing basket, he didn’t put them 8n there so I didn’t wash them....Monday comes, where my shirt for work?
Did you put them in the basket? No. Must be on the floor where you left it! .....made him iron and wear his dirty stuff to work.Never had to ask again!
Good luck x

Simonfromharlow Sun 19-May-19 00:02:06

My ex h was like this. I'm glad he's an ex now.

Nopity nope squat

Sparklfairy Sun 19-May-19 00:04:56

Of course he 'doesn't want to'. Nobody wants to! Bellend.

And I definitely wouldn't want to if I knew someone else would do it for me instead!

GreenTulips Sun 19-May-19 00:19:04

Lots of ‘I don’t want too’s can apply to you

Cooking
Cleaning
Dog waking sex

What’s good for the goose

LillithsFamiliar Sun 19-May-19 00:19:54

He sounds like a teenager, willing to spend time complaining/arguing rather than doing something.
YANBU to be annoyed but YABU if this isn't a catalyst for change. You need to stop doing everything. It's only by stopping (and sticking to it) that this will change.

This ^^ I love it! smile

OK so I'd start saying "I don't want to/care" regarding his laundry also. Leave them where he drops them/in the linen basket for him to "want to/care". He's acting like a stroppy teen instead of a, supposedly, mature, support adult. Has he always treated you like an unpaid servant?

GreenTulips.
Hoping you'll enlighten us about the "dog waking sex".😄

AnotherEmma Sun 19-May-19 00:24:18

thegreatcrestednewt Sun 19-May-19 00:29:51

Wtaf? Don’t do another thing for him. No washing, cooking, cleaning. You didn’t want to. Ffs.

3dogs2cats Sun 19-May-19 00:38:48

Just LTB

TheRedBarrows Sun 19-May-19 00:40:20

If he had complained to me that a pile of his clothes, cleaned by me, was ‘my crap’ I would tidied it straight into the dustbin.

Who does he think he is?

Butterymuffin Sun 19-May-19 00:40:38

Yes, no more washing done for him!

TheValeyard Sun 19-May-19 00:40:58

Dog waking sex

DP is great in every respect apart from this, as in will cook, wash up etc and I did this as well, I refuse to pick up at DS (7) or put his clothes away, I am not sure why DP thought this would not apply to him as well.

He’s mother must have been so overbearing Jesus Christ.

Whisky2014 Sun 19-May-19 00:45:39

Hang and id not do anything for him

Topseyt Sun 19-May-19 00:49:37

I think you might have married a teenager.

Marchinupandownagain Sun 19-May-19 00:50:56

Yes, do let's blame a woman for a man's faults on no evidence...

SIGH

I would refuse to have sex with a man like that.
