Un­em­ployed man com­plains about amount of house­work he must do

Rome News-Tribune - - SPORTS - GARFIELD

Dear Abby: I am an un­em­ployed (and look­ing) 24-year-old male who is the old­est of four. My three sis­ters are a 20-year-old who has a part-time job and goes to col­lege, a 14year-old and a 12-year-old. We all live at home with our physi­cian par­ents.

Our long­time clean­ing lady re­cently quit, and my par­ents seem­ingly have no in­ter­est in hir­ing a re­place­ment. My sis­ters and my father don’t help with the chores be­cause they are seen as ei­ther too young or too busy. At most, they will un­load gro­ceries or as­sist in cook­ing a meal. My mother en­cour­ages this and does a fair amount of the work her­self, but she has a job, so I’m fre­quently told to han­dle the dishes, cook­ing, pick­ups and drop-offs for af­ter-school ac­tiv­i­ties, ex­pected of me, but I think this is well past the point of what’s ex­pected. What should I do?
