  • I think that the 3 of them need to sit down and talk. "company/guests" stay for a few days, NOT live there permanantly! think the sil should pull her own weight around the house- offer to cook, clean do something to 'earn her room and board'- and not just sit back on her butt and do nothing while wife busts her butt doing all the housework and cook/clean for the sil. Maybe wife should go on strike, and let hubs do all the housework, cook, clean and pick up after his sis! Then maybe he would see things need to change.......

  • It all depends on how long she's been there. Maybe he just wants to help her get back on her feet.

  • Tell your sister next time she's doing housework... just ask "Hey... think you could help me wash the dishes?" or mop/sweep... whatever needs done, and tell her "I'm really tired and need help." Pretty simple... and if that woman is gonna stay with your sis and she's getting money, she should pull her own weight, at least help with the upkeep of where shes living

  • I always feel unconfortable when I lived with or stayed with someone else in their house. I really did not want to touch anything. Maybe that is what she is afraid of too. I am a cleanaphobic and a germaphobic everything must be bleached that can be bleached, this makes most people highly unconfortable. I have only cleaned only 2 people's house one was my ex mother in laws and the other was a close friend of mine that I knew since I was 15.

  • If I was your sister I would tell the bitch to get on the ball or get the fuck out. "GUESTS" dont live with you forever, so she needs to stop being lazy. Tell you siser to grow a set and tell her husband she wont have this shit.
