I hate it I effin hate it so much...

I live with my mom. I know move then but till then I can't. I'm venting anonymously

I am the only one that cooks, cleans and washes dishes. ( their are 6 of us)
I hate it everytime I cook no one helps me with anything. The only ones that actually eat together are so and I and ds. The other three run to their rooms and eat. Then They usually eat last since they are always hiding in their rooms. So with them eating last I still have to put food away and wash dishes. The best part of all they keep the dishes stacked upstairs because they are to lazy to bring then down. So right now we only have 3 forks and 2 spoons the rest are upstairs because I refuse to bring them down Why would I more dishes for me to wash. Also with leftovers they sit and sit in the fridge. they won't throw them out because if they do they would have to wash the dishes. Or the good leftovers they devour the whole thing. Adding more....

  • I lived with my dad and bro and it was much the same as far as cook and clean up goes. I just said, "Fine, I am not cooking for you unless you clean up your dishes." Did that for awhile, they got better, then started slipping up again, so I just cooked for me and hubby (son was too young). After that, I would put their dirty dishes in their shower so that they had to take care of them if they wanted to bathe. Place them out of their room somewhere where it AFFECTS THEM and what they want to do. Whether it is on the couch so they can't watch tv or on their bed so they can't sleep. yea they might move them, but then they can't eat with no dishes.
    So buy paper plates and such for your family and keep them in YOUR room so they can't get to them.

  • We just had leftover meatloaf enough for 3 and one person ate the whole damn thing. and of course I have to wash the dishes. Or if my lil family leaves for awhile they eat everything in the fridge. if it's leftover tacos they are gone asap. Other things like sides just sit in there until I throw them away. Everytime I ask someone to do dishes or put food away they b*tch and complain. For awhile to I was the only one buying all the food for 6. Even now if my mom buys food it goes straight in her room. She will not put pop in the fridge. One time she came home with like 5 bags of food and only put milk in the fridge and that's it. I just hate it here. I think I' done.

  • Buy yourself one of those small fridges (I had one in my dorm room) place it in your room and put your food there.

  • If I only cook for US they complain. My mom says she doesn't cook because she works. My 13 yo sister doesn't do anything. I sometimes get her to do the dishes but she crys and complains and my mom doesn't make her do anything. I'm lucky if she is even in the house at 10 pm.  She doesn't come home because I make her clean her room and do dishes.

  • I feel so bad for you I once had to move in with my aunt and I was the red-headed step child. My food disappeared and I was treated like crap. Used and abused! I hope you guys can move out soon. Do you qualify for section 8?

  • Could you maybe rent a house or apartment with another family so as to be able to share the costs?

    The dorm fridge in your own room is a good idea, along with a lockable cabinet for snacks & non-perishables. If you can't get out of cooking for everyone, you certainly can get away from doing all of the dishes by getting a set of dishes for your family & using them for yourselves, washing & locking them up in your room when finished eating. As for leftovers, again, use a dorm fridge for those things you want & leave them to clean out the kitchen fridge as they see fit.

    Also, if you are paying rent to stay with your parents & they're expecting you to be their slaves, too, that needs to change by writing up a contract of who is responsible for what. Once in b&w, there isn't much they can do about it if you don't comply with their demands, except evict you and that would be tough with a contract in hand.
