"Why is there a homeless man on the couch? No, wait. Thats my husband!"

My husband's job gave him a week off of work. So starting today he decided he was going to be a bum. Luckily are daughters are with my parents for their spring break so there would have been chaos. I went to work today around 9:00 am and he was still sleeping. Usually he off to work by now. So anyway, I am at work and I called him during my lunch break which is around 1 to see how he is. He told me he was sitting on couch playing on his Xbox. I said to myself " well he is enjoying his time off. I came back a half hour ago after work and going to the store to pick up somethings and I see my husband on the couch looking like a bum still playing his Xbox in his boxers. There is a huge mess in the kitchen and the living room. There were dishes in the sink, bags of chips, beer bottles and a pizza box on coffee table and floor. Also I can tell he didnt shower.  All I can say to myself after seeing him is "Good Grief"


Is your husband like mine on his day off?

His 'day off' would end right there and he'd clean up after himself.... then he could go back to beign a bum.  If my hubby wants to be a bum every now & then, I only ask that he stop being a bum for about 15 mintues and clean up his shit.

well, it's his time off. he should enjoy it and do whatever he wants to do, as long as he isn't attracting flies. and how often do you two get a break from kids? Let him enjoy it, as long as you aren't being used as a servant.

My first question is "why does your husband have an XBox? I have never actually met a grown man that acutally has his own video game.  They may play with their teenage sons, but purchase their own, no.

My husband doesn't clean at all, but he does help out quite a bit with the kids. Like when he gets home he pretty much immediatly picks up our youngest and plays on the floor with him and our oldest. Or holds the baby while he's playing WoW on his computer. But I'm a SAHM and it's my JOB to clean and what not.

When I worked and he was a SAHD with our oldest he cleaned maybe once every two weeks. It was still me cleaning, cooking, laundry. Sometimes I'd come home with him AND the baby still in pj's, dirty dishes every where.
