    Good luck,
    was a persisant issue when I had a partner (among other things), his thought process? it doesnt bother me, if it bothers you you do it.

    tried the piling it up, tried the leaving it, tried chucking a wobbly, tried reasonable discussion, tried lists,

    frankly you cant change someone unless they want to change

    Stop washing his clothes.
    Stop cooking him meals.
    Stop picking up after him.
    Hire a gardener.
    Just tell him calmly how you are exhausted doing it all, and if he won't help out then you are going to lighten your load and stop worrying about him. He is an adult. He can clean up after himself, and help out.

    It might...if he is willing to change it might make him realise what the op is doing for him. It might not, but either way it's not a partnership and the op needs to stop being his slave.
