My dh works at wastewater and water plants, and he gets all dirty in his line of work. Every day, I clean the tub before I take a bath, then when he gets home he will shower, and there will be a thick gross layer of filth on the bottom of the tub. He won't clean it. My dd had a birthday party today, and I really scrubbed the tub so it was sparkling, then dh got back from work, (he has to work on weekends once every three or four weeks). So, he gets home and showers in the sparkling clean tub, gets it filthy again, and just draws the curtain so our guests won't see it. By then I didn't have time to clean it, especially since it was still draining and I had my hands full with the baby. I don't get too much on his case about it, though, because I feel bad for him b/c he works so hard, and I know that isn't a pleasant job. Like, him working on the weekends happens when he's on call, and so last night he didn't get any sleep because he kept getting called out. So, I'm not mad at HIM about it, it's just frustrating to keep having to clean it every day. Ick. Side note, my poor exhausted dh has been napping for the past three hours ever since the party ended. This is the last night of on call for him and I hope they don't call him out again. I do really respect what he does to support our family.
