Well my step-dad doesn't have a job or anything so he pretty much just sits around all day on his laptop. The last time he lost his job he told my mom that he was going to take like 1 to 2 months of just relaxing really and then start finding a job well those 1 to 2 months lasted 3 years! and I did just about everything then because my mom was going to college and working at the time so she didn't have time to do much of that stuff. Well during that time I told him I had enough if he wanted his clothes clean to do it himself so he did. and when he got a job again I did all that stuff. Well now he doesn't have a job and he cooks sometimes but a majority of the time he's doing nothing while I'm doing stuff and he calls me lazy and all that. And he also gets mad when I take my son for walks or just go out for a little while but he's always telling me I need to get out of the house for a while. ugh so do I have a right to be annoyed or am I just over reacting here.
- I should be annoyed he can take care of himself I'm not his mom.
- I shouldn't be annoyed he's older than I am and I should just deal with it.

You should be annoyed. As payment for staying there I could see part of your "rent" is that you do all the laundry. It's not like you have to pedal the machine. It pretty much does all the work for you.
As far as getting him coffee & that I agree with you. He can get up off the couch & get it himself.
Dinner on occasion may be OK as you wrote, your mom is going to college and working at the time so she didn't have time to do much of that stuff.
What's he doing to earn his keep?
When he calls you lazy say I did X,X & X today. What have you done to help mom out?
