I posted about a month ago about my BIL that drives me crazy. It has gotten worse. I was out of town for work 2 weeks ago, and when I got home my 11 year-old son said, "Guess what "annoying uncle" got evicted and is moving in with us in 30 days." I went nuts, but then found out that 30 days was wrong, and he had already been staying there . . . and has continued to do so. I was irate, and my husband said, "What was I supposed to do? If it was your brother would you have thrown him out on the street?" Well, I would have at least talked to him about it first.

Here's the kicker . . . I work from home, my husband is full-time student, and my kids are on summer break. BIL supposedly has a job, but has only worked 1 day in the last 2 weeks! We are all here ALL DAY LONG! I spend all of my time in my office during the day, and in my bedroom at night. My kids (11 & 15) normally spend their time in the finished basement where their video games, ping pong, air hockey, foosball, etc. are kept; but since that is where BIL is staying . . . they now spend all of their time in their rooms or in my room. If I don't kill someone soon it is going to be a miracle. I feel like I am on edge all of the time, and it only matter of time before I explode! Doesn't it seem like he would notice that everyone stays in their rooms, and that isn't normal? Doesn't it seem like he would get the hint? Thought I would feel better to rant, but it didn't work. AHHHHHHHHHH!

Don't rely on hints. They will fail miserably.
Set rules, guidelines, timelines, expectations. And make them STICK!

Tell hubby since it's his brother to tell him to get a job that lets him work more than 2x a month so he can have money and have his own place!!

What does he do all day?

Watches TV, plays video games . . . who knows . . . I stay away from him. He is 30 years old, he needs to get a life already. Hubby told him to get a job, but with 14% unemployment it will be difficult. My issue is that he doesn't even try!
