He shared his experience living in a snug apartment with his nurse girlfriend. She had a 30-minute drive to her workplace, while he recently transitioned to a 9-5 office job after working from home for some time.

His girlfriend’s work schedule was inconsistent. Sometimes it was morning, other times afternoon or even night. This often disrupted her sleep, especially after night shifts.

With an early 6 a.m. start, she’d wake up around 4:30 or 5 to prepare a substantial breakfast. This big meal was crucial since her next meal break wasn’t until 2 p.m.

She relished her breakfast. “Imagine coffee, orange juice, bacon, eggs, pancakes (or waffles), and sometimes more like fruit or cereal. She often left a chaotic kitchen because she was in a rush,” the boyfriend detailed.

His Past Cleaning Habit

While he was working from home, he regularly tidied up after her. “After moving into her place at the pandemic’s onset, I was jobless for a bit, while she kept working. So I’d clean her morning mess,” he recalled.

Conflicts arose when she expected him to continue cleaning up, even though he felt swamped with his own tasks. With his return to office work post-lockdown, he couldn’t maintain the cleaning routine for her.

He typically got up at 7, after she had left. His breakfast was minimal, just coffee, occasionally adding a treat if she’d prepared extra. Lacking a dishwasher, he cleaned up after himself, leaving the rest untouched.

During an early homecoming, he was greeted by the day’s kitchen chaos. This triggered a spat, with her labeling him as indolent. She expressed disappointment at the sight of unwashed pans after her long day.

Tired of the repetitive disputes, he sought clarity on whether he was wrong in expecting her to handle her own mess. Their tensions persisted.

One person said, “You are not a jerk. If she has enough time to prepare and make an elaborate breakfast, then she has enough time to take care of her mess.”

Another wondered, “If she wants a big breakfast and no dishes, she should grab some fast food, or maybe think about some frozen options.”
