my other half has been out of work for 2 weeks. i am at work all day every day and have to come home and clean, cook, do the washing and everything else around the house. i know he's upset at not having work but it doesn't stop him helping out. am i just being awkward??
He's being a twat and he needs a kick up the backside. He's been out of work, not had a limb cut off - yes it's crap, yes it's worrying etc etc - but you can feel crap about it AND prepare dinner, shove a load of washing it etc.
You don't have him thinking he can't do it as well as you so he might as well not bother though do you???? (ie do you tell him he's not done it 'properly' when he does do something??) It's very easy to just not bother when you know that what you have done wont be considered 'good enough'.
