    What has your approach been so far? A friendly reminder might help? "Don't forget to take out the trash today"
    I don't mind being reminded, I do mind being nagged for hours about it though

    Rewards are better than nagging and punishment.

    Give him donuts if he does it. Give him donuts with laxatives if he doesn't

    Take a deal with him to share the work of the house and do something else in exchange. Like the vacuum. And than remember him that he need to do his part...

    I have fights like this with my girlfriend all the time. Honestly, I just like to-do lists and notes. But yeah, being rewarded even just with compliments or *cough* other things would be a major incentive. Like, I'm gonna get nagged wether I contribute or not so there's no incentive to chip in. Guys like to be recognized for their efforts, even if they should be basic things.

    Clearly I am a relationship expert and know how to cater to the male ego. Take note ladies ;)

    He is also a serial putter backer of EMPTY juice/milk cartons in the fridge, so I said if he cleans it out I'll restock the entire kitchen with yummy food (he's a student) and he did it... after four months!!! :mad:

    That's the same boyfriend who won't let you take that poor old cat from the shelter?
    Darn, you really do need a better boyfriend!
