If the kid is getting on your nerves its probably as an extension of your DH. If your DH is getting on your nerves well other than talking him him about it there's not much you can do. Every time he says it you could say 'yeah I know my poor baby has to go to college full-time and work too, it sure must be hard on both of them, but at least we know they have good worth ethics.'

I don't know.  Seems like a fairly innocent vent from husband to wife.  Maybe tell dh he needs to find a friend to share his feelings with if it is bothering you so much?

I agree with this.
From what you posted, the kid isn't doing anything, his dad is just expressing himself.
You are most likely just irritated with dad & it's affecting the way you see his son.

Yep. You should try talking to your DH.

It isn't what your DH is saying that is bothering you; the problem goes deeper than that.  What is really bothering you?  Think about it.  Seriously.  You'll come up with the real reason you are so irritated.

I suspect you have some kind of resentment toward his son. Does your husband spend money (or time) on his son that you feel should be spent on you? What is the source of your resentment?

 So let me get this straight. You are aggravated with your DH for sympathizing for his OWN son's hard work and accomplishments?? Sheesh. Talk about picking your battles....
