    I've been staying with my brother for a couple of months as I lost my licence. We get on quite well, but he also lives with his girlfriend of 4 years. I've never been a massive fan of her, but I'd never really got to know her. Since living here (and this has been 3 months mind you), I've literally never seen her do any housework. I saw her attempt some sort of sweeping with the broom in the kitchen the other day (she looked at the broom and must have had a go just out of curiosity - you know, to see what all the fuss is about), and her 'sweep' was comically bad. She looked like a disabled kid trying to work a broom. It may as well have been her operating a space shuttle launch. She's hopeless, and literally gave up half way through sweeping one room.

    She also has no interests, and I mean that literally. She works casually as a waitress and only gets 20 or so hours a week. The bosses always seem to end up hating her, which now that I've seen her in action, I can see they probably find her too useless to give more hours to. The rest of her time she lies on her bed watching TV shows on her laptop or lies on the couch and fucks around with her phone.

    She also has no personal/conversational skills. You can't have a real conversation with her because she trails off or doesn't get the point of what you're talking about. It's not like I can't converse with stupid people, but she is absolutely devoid of character to the point that I can't even feign interest in what she's saying.

    She literally has no hobbies, no interests, no motivation. My brother renewed her learner licence, but she's too lazy to even learn to drive. My bro gave up on that a year ago. She doesn't contribute to conversation because she doesn't really know anything about anything. I've never met anyone who has such a complete lack of substance. It actually annoys me. How can anyone be so useless and shit? I'll admit I'm more of a go-getter - I always try to be productive - but fuck useless people. Seriously.

    I can't drown her in a pond, so what do I do?

    cliffs:

    - I'm staying with my bro and his girlfriend who is useless
    - she can't drive, does nothing around the house
    - no hobbies, no ability to converse
    - in denial about her laziness
    - epitome of useless, but I can't 'take her out'

    Move off your brother's couch, then you won't have to see her.

    You literally ignore her and go about your business.

    You're living with your brother because you lost your license and you start a thread about useless people? Do you understand the irony?

    This is a weird thread to make given you lost your licence and are crashing on your brother's couch.

    I'm not trying to be rude. I just wonder what she has to say about you.

    Try and help her out with stuff the way she and your brother are helping you out.

    Maybe she never learned any of that stuff growing up and had a shitty family. Don't be a judgemental dick and try to help her learn life skills they don't teach in school.

    I'm not 'on the couch'. I have their spare room and I pay my share in rent. I do 80% of the cleaning around their house, my brother performing the other 20%. That hardly makes me useless.

    Also, even if I were the useless one in this story, that wouldn't make it 'ironic'. That would make my story contradictory. Ironic would be that she is actually productive and I'm the lazy one.

    But hey, through 'irony' around whenever you can. It's a cool sounding word.

    Ah, I've given her a chance. At the end of the day, you can't help laziness. And how long can you blame your failings on your childhood?

    She did have a weird upbringing, but I don't resent her because of her personality shortcomings or lack of learned skills, it's her unwillingness to try and better herself, become productive and contribute.

    She is literally 100% reliant on my bro driving her around, cooking her food, cleaning their house, organising for her laptop to get fixed when it breaks, ANYTHING. She's his fucking dependent and she's riding it out because at this point neither of them know any better. I've got no respect for people who can't even look after their own dwelling because of pure laziness.

    And lol at all the heroes in here calling me out as useless just because I'm the one living with them. That I shouldn't judge her. Sherdog forums are filled with the most resentful and judgmental people around.

    Lol at this last line considering this thread.

    Maybe she conserves all her energy to give your brother the banging of a lifetime.

    I personally don't know anyone who's that useless. So I can't really give an opinion on that.

    I'm pretty sure your brother would rather not have you living with them. But that's just me. Same goes for his GF. Even if you do 80% of the cleaning like you say. You could pay 100% of the rent and clean the whole house twice daily, doesn't mean they want your ass all up in their personal space. Ever thought of that?

    So maybe just bite your tongue and be gracious that they're even tolerating your presence. Instead of talking shit about quite frankly, an issue that doesn't concern you.

    Well, it's my brothers house. And as I cleared up, I'm not on the couch, I'm paying rent for the spare room. I don't know what she would say about me, but it couldn't be all bad. I cooked them dinner a bunch of times when I first moved in. I do all the housework. I'm either studying, working or at the gym, so I'm not home much.

    I clean up all the mess she makes in the bathroom. I buy her doughnuts or treats whenever I go out for a snack run. I also pay more rent then her, and she's broke, so she'd obviously appreciate that she has more money with me there.
