I dont know what to do right now. See SO works a lot & hard so I dont ask him to do too much when home. I do ask him to do some things like clean up your own dirty dishes, clean out the tub when your done & its a mess, etc. Things of that nature.
Now SO shrimps in the winter time for about three months. He sells it on the side of the road out of the truck. This means we have things for the shrimping bussiness & it gets dirty. I asked & begged him to keep up on cleaning it throught he winter. I dont do it bc well its not apart of my job, he is laid off during this time & he takes it on as his job, he wouldnt slack if he were working for someone.
Well we had huge issues over it this past winter he didnt keep on top of it too much which made me mad. Shrimp smells something awful & the juice gets on everything & makes it all smell to high heaven. He would do things like wait the next morning to clean it up so it sits all night smelling & getting stained on to stuff, gross!
At the end of the season he packed everything up into a tote. Now you would assume it was all cleaned up right. Its been sitting in there for or since Feb/Mar. We just moved at the end of March & a bunch of totes got tossed into a storage area for a bit. I got all of our stuff that needed to be out of the way & brought it over to our place to be sorted & cleaned up & organized to go back into storage, into our house or donated, whatever.
I just opened up a random tote (not labeled) & there is his shirmp gear, stained & smelling. Really!? The first thing on the top was one of my good cake/cookie tupperware containers that he stole to use for the shrimp all nasty, I tossed it right into the trash. He has all kinds of stuff in there a scale, scoop, boxes of plastic bags, & who know what else.
My big problem right now is what to do. He is at work & I just had a fight with him over the phone about it. He says he'll do it asap, well in the past & up until even the last task I asked him to do asap means whenever the hell I want to which could be from a days time to more then a years time & if I ask (aka nag in his eyes) then he gets upset & we fight.
Now either I can take his word & give him a chance to do it asap (he works the next five days too) or I can do it myself. I told him on the phone that I will look at the tote but if it gets to be too much I will not hesitate to take it over to the dumpster & dump the entire tote itself into the bin without a second thought.
Should I clean it or give him the chance to do it? I feel like I am nagging at a child here this is just ugh over the line some things are fine to be let go & linger but shrimp/fish juice all over items & stuffed into an enclosed tote NOT OKAY in my opinion at least. Thanks for the vent ladies.
