The consequences

He's also furious. When you lay into him like that for such 'trivial' things, he just doesn't understand. He thinks you've got a nerve: he does a lot more round the house than his own dad ever did. He defends himself and puts his argument across: he does do the washing up, he did it last week! Then when you cynically snort at each of his pathetic attempts to find an example, he gets angry and sarcastic: "Yeah you're right, aren't you?! I'm just a lazy bum, but you, you're so perfect!". This is to try and make you feel guilty.

Alternatively, he starts imitating you and makes you out to be a neurotic clean freak. He grabs a pile of dirty socks up off the floor, yells "There, you happy now?" and chucks them in the washing machine (which he forgets to turn on). It's a lost cause. 

A better approach
