My husband. He only does the clown thing 3 days a week anymore, and two of them are on my days off. So in the 4 days that I'm at work and he's at home, you'd think he'd clean up yeah? Fucking, no. I get home and he says "I did a load of dishes, those are new." No they're not. They've got stuff on them from dinner last night when you said you'd do them because after I worked all day long, I got home and made dinner. I'm neither stupid nor blind, those are the same damn dishes, with the same shit upon them. Maybe once a week I'll get home and I can tell that he actually cleaned the living room, and swept. He's not cleaned the bathroom once in the 8 years we've been together.

He's a terrible housewife.

*sigh*

I smile and do what I can with the energy I have, but damn, you'd think he could at least wipe his makeup out of the sink every now and again.

Devastated that he isn't a wife?  That he doesn't do dishes? That he has a  'clown thing'?

Quoting AnnieMcD:

I am devastated.

Quoting Anonymous:

I'm sorry, you lost me at 'clown thing'

That's true, but I wish he'd just take up a lot more of the slack these days. I didn't notice it before because our roommate did a lot of the cleaning up of the kitchen. But now that we don't have a roommate I see exactly how much he was doing.
And no, he's not a "kept man" ... he's a housewife, his words not mine. Or maybe househusband. But a kept man ... no.


Quoting JavaLadybug2:

You teach people what is acceptable...



That said.. He's a kept man.. Not a housewife

LMAO.
And yes, I am being fully serious. He's a balloon twister and clown. It's pretty greatm


Quoting VannaMae307:

I was in the hospital for 5 days recently, and he got to stay home with our son....I did more the day after I got home (after having an appendectomy) than he did in the ENTIRE 5 DAYS. Mine sucks as a damn housewife too, he bowed down to my domestic superiority!

BTW I love clowns, if you're being serious. I want to go to clown school and be a volunteer at kid hospitals.

Sit down with him and create a schedule of chores, then initial which ones you're responsible for and have him initial which one's he's responsible for.  From the list you can create a daily to-do list that may keep him on track.  Sometimes people don't mean to dis you, they just don't think about it.  The best way to get what you want is to make expectations very clear.

I don't think there is anything wrong with your husband being a clown. As long as he enjoys it, that's all that matters. As far as him cleaning up, well sometimes you just have to spell everything out for them. That's the way my husband is sometimes. It does get aggravating at times.

LOL thanks. I'm gonna tell you, greasepaint is a BITCH to clean up. For real.

Quoting Pink.Frosting:

Lol, I'm sorry you're dealing with it but that was funny.  Especially about his make up.
