SAHM's does your husband go to work and then come home and accuse you of not working?

Or am i the only one. He acts like raising his kids and keeping his house isnt work. I spent several hours today rearranging my dd's room, catching up on laundry, and other housework. He comes home and tells me i aint done nothing since i didnt vacuum the living room forgetting of course that our vacuum cleaner has a broken belt that he has yet to replace. Its as if i can do nothing rigth. So my question is does your man do this or is it just me? and if he does what do you do about it?

  • Yep....get used to it. Learn to bitch about it with your friends and to not let him bother you.

  • Go on strike for one week I guarantee you when he's hungry naked and dirty he'll realize just how much you do.

  • Are we married to the same man?? I swear we had the same discussion over me not vacuuming just the other day; our belt is broke too.

    I started a timesheet for myself (please realize I am being a smart ass) and documented everything I do in 15 minute incriments. My list averages about 18 pages! I asked him each evening if he will sign my timesheet for me. Needless to say, he now gets my point and is not even mentioning chores or household duties!

  • yeah, he did until i put him in his place. Now even if the house is a disaster area he knows not to open his mouth.

  • Oh yes; there are days when he acts like I just sit around all day; there aren't enough hours in the day for me between working from home, caring for my son, the house, our dogs, running errands, making sure bills are paid on time; making phone calls, etc.... the list never ends. I wish I had some time for myself. I told him it's easier to go to work and come home and put up your feet but they just don't get it do they?

  • Yep men can be very arrogant... Mine thinks i watch movies all day and god knows whatelse, our house is never perfect I have 3 kids and another almost here and he doesnt seem to get what the house would look like if i actully did NOTHING...i think them picking on us makes them feel like they are literally king shit.... Just ignore him thats what I do cause it just shows how stupid he can be and if he wants to look and sound that stupid more power to him, cause I know he couldnt handle what I do everyday!!!

  • No.... My hubby comes home and says "Hi baby girl what did you do today?" Whether I say "Nothing" or "I cleaned the whole house, etc." he hugs me and says "Sounds like fun." I'm sorry your hubby treats you like that. I hope it gets better.
