Ok this is a really minor issue

So I was cleaning my room and I wanted to get rid of a old rug from my bedroom.

I put most of the junk in the Living-room for my dad to take to the dump. My dad noticed the bag with the rug and thought it was best to give it to my cat to sleep on. He wanted to clean it.

The problem is... When he took out the rug, loads of dust came out of it. Then he told ME!! to sweep the floor because of the mess. My dads excuse for not sweeping up the mess he caused was he was still working. I was also working too!! I didn't bother addressing this to my dad because he would put the blame on me.

I was very annoyed, growing up I was taught clean up after yourself- whatever mess you made clean it up. He treated me like crap like I'm worthless cause he owns a higher salary than me.

My dad made the mess and told me to clean it... Was this fair?? Advice and please be kind.. thanks

Considering it in isolation - no it’s not fair

Considering it with other factors such as the fact that your parents have provided for you your whole life, take care of you etc - yes it is fair 😂

It doesnt have to be your mess, you should be expected to help out around the house every so often. Its not like he yelled at you for it.

Asking you to sweep up a pile of dirt is not 'treating you like crap', by the way :lol:

Yeah it's fair. He's your dad, raised you, takes care of you, supports you, his house, his rules, have some respect and help out once in a while why don't you?

I give him the up most respect but he never respects me back- this is why i'm really annoyed. I believe respect works in both ways

He puts a roof over your head, the shirt on your back and food in your belly.

I would disagree with everyone else. I think if its a constant thing like that and not two way respect like you said then its not really fair.

The rug wouldn't have caused such a mess in the first place if you'd cleaned it and looked after it whilst it was in your room - yes, it's fair.

It was your rug, though, so your responsibility to keep it clean in the first place
