Take Off Your Freaking Shoes!!!

I have asked my husband since the day we were married to take his shoes off at the door.  He has always disregarded my request and tromped though with no though. I don't know how often he's left mud all over.  In our early years, I'd harass him about it "you know how it bugs me, why can't you just take them off to make me happy?"  Finally I just gave up asking. 

When my son was 3, he was walking across the floor with his shoes on.  I asked him to take them off.  He said "daddy said it's OK as long as I keep it down low." Come to find out, "daddy" had told him "just keep it on the down low" in other words, just don't tell your mother. Cute and funny no doubt, but still.

OK.  I know this is not the biggest issue in the world.  But it just shows the utter disregard and lack of respect my stbx has always had for me in every area.  Honestly, I think I should've begged him to leave his shoes on.  I'm pretty sure I would have had more success.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I needed to get it of my chest!! He can take his passive aggressive behavior and torture someone else with it.  I'm over it.

I had just written a little story about how pissed I am at the Hub for showing zero respect for our home- but that boils down to basically me.<br />

You are not alone!I have been in a perfectly lousy marriage to a complete slob for 32 yrs.I do the cooking,cleaningand all work around the house.I have begged and pleaded to this woman to just pick up the messes she makes but to no avail.For example she recently got a bag of peanuts and just threw the shells on the floor(like Texas Roadhouse). The kids then took up their mothers solvenly ways.It' either clean up the messes or live in a firetrap.
