By I did them anyway - 20/7/2015 22:01 - New Zealand
Today, my flatmate asked me to wash the large pile of dishes on the bench, and if I would start on cleaning the house which was a total mess. This would have been fine if I hadn't just walked in after being away for a week. FML

No sympathy from me. You're the one wearing the "I am a doormat" sign on your forehead. Quit letting your flatmate order you around. He or she is not your mother.

Normally I would agree with you, and I do still agree with you. It's not easy living with someone else, and it requires a lot of teamwork. If you get into fights or arguments, it can cause issues with rent and other things. The friend should've done most of the work and OP should've done a much lighter load. Again that is just to keep the peace.

Just to keep the peace? Not letting yourself be a doormat doesn't necessarily mean a loss of peace, and if it does it's time to find a new roommate.

You did them anyway? Stand up for yourself! The only reason he asked was probably because you're soft enough to not argue!
Put him in his place next time and I doubt he will do it again!
