Well, i am MADangry had the day off today and planned to do loads round here. Unfortunately dh had to have the day off too, i got up this morning and he was still heresad Then he decided to wash the dogs in the bath..........what a mess and a smell........ridiculous i thought! So then i go up the shop to get cillit bang and loads of stuff to take the smell away, meantime thinking about all the jobs I wanted to get done. When i get back he says i waste all my time and he could give me some hints on how to keep the house clean as i am obviously abit 'slack' in that area!!!! WELL!!! Bloody Cheek!!!! To say i was cross was an understatement!!!! He is picking out all the jobs i need to do but never get the chance, you know, the jobs you always mean to get round to......
Thought i would just vent some anger on here.........i have now persuaded him to prepare a casserole for dinner (wonders will never cease, he usually avoids cooking like the plague!) Whilst i am cleaning up the crap he leaves behind him like some slavehmm
He's just coming i'm off.

I would tell him that the best way to teach is to give you a practical demonstration. Hand him the cleaning stuff and sit back.

I would take coppertops approach, except that I would invent a reason for going out and leave him to it! Tell him you will just view the results when you get back.

take him up on the offer very enthusiastically: 'WHAT a good diea? Why don't you start doing X/Y/Z so I have time to do the routine stuff? What do you need?'

then wander off

I would like to think that I would take Coppertop's reasoned calm approach.

In reality I would take all the cleaning stuff you have; cillit bang, bleach, bog cleaner and your hoover and tell him to shove them up his arse.

Let him show you... then as you didn't get it the first time, let him show you again... and as you are just a silly girl, he'll need to show you again... Then you tell him that he is obviously far better at this than you so it's now HIS job!!

It's a boy thing - they always think they know cleaning better than you (even if they have only ever observed it being done).

I'm with Huw!!

Tell him to stuff it all up his bum and storm off for a coffee somewhere, with a book.

Or maybe tell him that he is right, and that it is about time you got a cleaner! wink

lol! just what i expected from fellow mners!
Well, he has had a call from a friend and gone off to play squash.....thank god for that......He has left me in charge of his half cooked beef casserole.............can't believe i am to be trusted with thatshock Hope he gets in the way of a slow (but fast) flying squash ball......

And you let him go - 'where do you think you're going with that sink full of dirty dishes and the tea only half cooked???'

Burn his tea or cook a squash ball into it to see how he likes that!

Or put some of the dog's bath mess in his tea!

Know just how you feel ! My husband moans at kids telling them they are lazy and I shouldn't have to pick up after them and then I am picking up his grotty socks and sweaty cycling gear off the floor - lucky for those with time for a hobby ! He his always moaning about the mess (3kids,dog,cat and rabbit in small 3 bed house)and says other people manage it so why can't I ! Chin up - you are not alone!
