Unemployed man complains about amount of housework he must do
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?
