Dear Abby: I am 7 1/2 months pregnant, living with my fiance, his cousin, his cousin’s girlfriend and her little brother, who she has custody of. (He will be 18 in a few months.) I do all the house cleaning and have for the last year and a half. I constantly pick up after them after work.

The cousin’s girlfriend (“Queen Slob”) is the worst of the bunch. She doesn’t clean up after herself at all. She leaves a trail — drops her purse on the table, doesn’t throw away her trash and leaves dirty dishes everywhere. I have tried not picking up after Queen Slob and everyone else, but they are either so dumb or inconsiderate that they don’t put two and two together and realize it’s not magic and someone is cleaning up after them.
