I have always worked part time and in less than two weeks will be full-time. How do I get them on board with helping round the house?
They leave stuff out, dirty clothes on the landing and half drunk drinks and sweet packets everywhere. I talk to them tonight and get answered back so I've removed phones. They constant moan about what food we have, I ask for a list of things they like and don't get one. I'm at my wits end and seriously worried about this job and how much rubbish I'm going to come home to every night now I won't be here. Any ideas please help!

Explain you will no longer have the time, and they need to start contributing.
Have a rota for each of you to take turns to cook the meal. Whoever isn't cooking has the clearing up to do.
Obviously only wash things that are in the basket.
Call them back to remove anything left in communal areas every time. Shut the doors on their rooms.

Thank you for your reply.
I've decided to do a chart weekly with all the daily and weekly jobs. Each job will have a monetary value, they add their name when they've done it and I pay up on a Friday morning. They love shopping with their friends so hoping it will work!
