    It’s the oppisite for me. My wife is the one that’s sits on her butt all day until after midnight.

    Chores have to be negotiated between spouses – not delegated as if one were a child. And in those negotiations, each has to respect that one may not find a particular “chore” important or even necessary. Couples also have to figure out what’s equitable in terms of time, taking into account all work whether inside or outside of the home.

    Do what my daughter did, go on strike. She got tired of cleaning, only to have the boys, 3 of them plus dad, just mess it up again. She works a full time job and so does dad and the kids are all in school but NO ONE was helping with cleaning or meals so she made them plan and prepare all the meals and clean up after, pick up the downstairs before bed and it wasn’t more than 2 days before they got the point. Now they help with no complaint.

    I only see John relaxing in a comfortable chair after working all day. Is there a mess he made we don’t see?

    That took only 2 days? Wow, she did great getting 4 males in line in only 2 days. I hope it lasts.

    No, but the point is that it’s like pulling teeth (ironic, since he’s a dentist) to get him to help Elly around the house more often — she works hard all day, too, you know!

    “I only see John relaxing in a comfortable chair after working all day. Is there a mess he made we don’t see?”
    I thought the same thing. I suppose the beer is supposed to highlight what an ungrateful slob he is.

    If she hasn’t got him trained by now, he might as well forget it!

    John is a hard sell. Good luck with that. I just remember that when it comes to men, don’t use emotion as a weapon of first or last resort. I try to stick to the facts as it would benefit both. Well, off you go El, good hunting!

    I guess you’ve never reprimanded a pet who puddled on your carpet, or you enjoy sleeping in a bed full of doggy ‘do’. How nice for you.

    You are really a piece of work. It takes more than one minute to teach a pet where to relieve itself, just as it takes more than one minute to teach a child some responsibility.
    I’m glad you don’t have pets; you would be the catwoman whose house is reported to code compliance officers. That would be because you keep" accepting responsibility" as the owner when the catsare not using the litter box without bothering to teach them that the litter box is where they’re supposed to go…..
