My girlfriend and I have been living together for about six months. She is a painfully neat person, and I am just regular.
Every Saturday, she spends half the day scrubbing and cleaning our apartment. She gets pissed at me because I don't help her. She thinks that because we live together, I should help out with the housecleaning. But I tell her that since I don’t care about whether the house is clean or not, I shouldn't have to help.
Yesterday, she said I have the neatness standards of Delta House. I don't know what that means. Is that bad?
Dear Regular Guy,
Yeah, it's pretty bad.
