I have stood for 2 hours solid and battled the ironing pile and just popped downstairs to find that DH has made himself a cup of tea?? Half of me thinks don't be so petty but also thinking hang on I'm stood slogging my guts out here ironing HIS stuff!! Should also mention I'm 9 weeks pregnant and feel like crap!

YANBU

Make yourself a cup of tea. Then pour it on his freshly ironed clothes.

That's against one of the Ten Commandments isn't it? Thou shalt not make tea without offering all other adults in the house a cup.

YANBU to be pissed off, but why on earth are you doing all of his ironing?

Stare pointedly at his cuppa and make loud "ahem" noises until he brings you your own.

We have a rule in our home that if you are helping yourself to a drink you need to ask everyone in the family if they want a drink too. DC are 6, 4 and almost 18 months. It's been brilliant for training DH.

Why have you got two threads?

Oh no that's not on. If either of us is sticking the kettle on we always ask the other or just make it since we never say no to a coffee

Even our teenagers wouldn't make themselves a cup of tea without offering everyone else.

Cheers for all the replies, don't feel such a mardy ass now that you all agree IANBU! I also realise I posted this thread twice in a ranty typo earlier so apologies for any confusion. Also, for those of you that asked, I have so much ironing as we've just come back off holiday. There are 3 of us, we have a 2.5 yo DD. And I do the ironing simply because I'm faster at it although after tea gate today someone might find the creation of his own 'pile'!! Thanks again x

I sometimes do dh ironing - if he hasworked massive overtime hours or diy. I do all cooking and most of the cleaning.

But I don't do the ironing as much anymore based on threads on here. He respects me more now that I don't.

No-one asked you why there was so much ironing - they asked why you're doing his ironing!

'Because I'm faster at it' is utter nonsense, by the way. He's not going to get any faster at it if you do it for him. Any more housework you do because you're faster at it? Better at it? Better at spotting? Have higher standards regarding?

Did he know you wanted tea?

Unless he's doing equivalent work, you shouldn't be doing all the ironing. He won't get faster if you always do it.

Why are you ironing at all? The only person who irons in my house is my teenage son for himself. It's a waste of life and essence .

I brew alcohol though πŸ˜‚
