My BF's brother has been living with us in our small one bedroom apartment for a couple weeks now and not making any contribution to the household whatsoever. It's really starting to frustrate me and put a stain on our relationship. I don't know what to do. I expressed these feelings to my BF but he doesn't seem to know how to effectively communicate with his brother. That and the fact that his brother is absolutely stubborn and selfish. When he tells his brother that he should contribute his brother just makes up excuses as to why he shouldn't contribute (ie. "I try not eat any food," "all I do is sleep on the floor," etc). The only effort I've seen from him is giving us a $300 IOU and doing his laundry on occassion. Plus, it really bothers me because I feel like his brother is taking advantage of his generosity. I am getting to the point where I just can't keep these feelings to myself and I know that if I tell them to his brother he'll just take it the wrong way and will ruin whatever relationship we have left. I'm sorry but I just needed to vent because it's driving me crazy! You think that the place where you call home is your sanctuary but when someone who you don't even really like starts living with you and invading your space it becomes everything but that.
