I get to come home to this?!

I was gone for 48 hours w/ my oldest son for his B-day trip. My husb. couldnt be bothered to hold down the fort for a mear 48 hrs! I came home to a trashed house- & everything "waiting for me" I swear- it must be nice to be lazy & not feel bad about it. Give me a break!

  • I'm sorry. This is so annoying! Men see things differently then women. What is clean to them isn't clean to us. Or I'd hear this isn't so bad! Women see things are they are! Sorry. I hope he'll make this up to you!

  • I wouldn't clean it either- I would hand him the broom and show him where the dishwasher or sink is and the soap- as well as the washer and dryer and say "now this is what a big boy does, he doesn't need someone to do it for him, I'm not your mom".

  • OMG! I don't think I'd be able to keep it together if my DH did this to me. I'm be yelling and b*tching the whole time i did what "was left for me"

  • I'd be upset too if I came home to a mess! I feel that since we BOTH live in the house we BOTH should be responsible for cleaning and keeping up the house.

  • i would bitch too. men are helpless without women. i would make him clean it up. you aren't his maid.

  • If you weren't there, it's not your job to clean it up!!!

    I'm sorry, I would go ballistic if I were you. Mine is usually the opposite way around - I come home and the house is cleaner than when I left cuz DH is bored! lol

  • I would be mad as hell

  • Can you just ask him to help you clean up? Maybe he just wasn't raised up that way.. it's too bad of course, but.. he might not have done it intentionally.. sometimes guys esp just weren't raised that way...
