I understand exactly what you mean! I will clean all day, make sure everything is spotless. DH comes home and w/in ten minutes his clothes are draped over the chairs, his lunch pail contents are thrown on the counter, he’s eating random crap and getting crumbs everywhere. It is annoying, but what can you do? I tell him time and time again and nada.

Those needles can be dangerous! I would at least stay on him to pick those up if you happen to miss it.

Do you guys live together, or is this just from him visiting? 

My fiance was pretty bad when we first moved in together, but we’ve lived together for almost a year and he has gotten so much better. When I was really frustrated one day, I asked him one day who he thought would clean it up if he didn’t as I stormed out of the house for work (okay, stress from teaching and PMS got the best of me lol). He was so sweet, though, and said that he had never really thought about it like that- that it would have to be me if it wasn’t going to be him. Now when I’m really stressed with work and he happens to have a day off, he will clean the whole apartment! It takes time to train them! 😉

Haha, I’m glad I’m not the only annoyed one. My fiance leaves trash everywhere… and it’s real trash. Used tissue, he stuffs in between the wall and his bed. Old Wendy’s bags on the floor. Empty chip bags on his desk (which is another area that just has junk everywhere). And I tell him this everytime I go to his house, it’s filthy! We get into a fight about it every time cause I just don’t feel my best when I’m surrounded by garbage. He apologizes and says he will pick things up next time. And next time… it’s still dirty. I will admit he has been doing better, he “cleans” things up, but just not to my standards. Ugh. I told him in our house he can NOT do that. He will NOT do that. Haha!
