I hate cleaning and my husband is a slob.

What do I do about it? I don't think he's ever used a hamper, he just throws his clothes where ever he feels like. When he eats he leaves dishes and wrappers where ever. This one really bothers me, he really likes PB&J sandwiches so he'll make one for himself, he'll leave the jelly open on the counter, the peanut butter open on the counter, the bread bag open on the counter, a dirty jelly covered spoon on the counter, and crumbs everywhere because he won't make it on a plate. He takes his sandwiches sets them on the arm of our chair gets crumbs all over it. I have told him multiple times that this really bothers me yet he won't stop doing it. How can I get him to stop doing this?

My DH is the same way, only he'll try to do better when I ask.

Let him know that whatever he leaves out is going in his car, then do it!

You tell him to clean it the fuck up! He's a grown man. Tell him to grow up and act like!

Yep, annoying as HELL.  It is hard to just have a conversation anymore because it is soo damn ridiculous.  He doesn't do his own laundry, dishes, and doesn't even help pick up toys the girls get out.  He will move around stuff I'm trying to sort/organize, pile it up, later on bump it and knock it all in the floor and still NOT pick it up.  All because, "it isn't mine"  Seriously?  So done, at my breaking point, tired of feeling like I have 3 kids.

 When you walk into the kitchen and he's left a mess, don't clean it up, go into the living room and tell him to go clean it up. If the sandwich is on the arm of the chair, get a plate and put it under the sandwich, tell him that the arm of the chair is not a plate. When he throws clothes on the floor, make him clean it up.
