Wife Leaves Dishes, Laundry For Her Husband To Do, For Days, Chronicles It In Relatable Twitter Thread

Wife Leaves Dishes Laundry For Her Husband To Do For Days Twitter


Have you ever gotten so fed up with doing certain chores and other things around your house that you feel others in the household should be chipping in and doing a little more of their fair share of the work?

I know that I have done this with my kids, leaving the dishes to pile up in the sink or letting the garbage can in their bathroom overflow with trash in the mere hope that one of them will eventually get the subtle message. (They usually don’t.)

One British wife who was feeling that same way recently went on a “cleaning strike” leaving the dishes and laundry for her husband, who she believed to be slacking around the house, and ceasing to do several other small household chores.

Days later, none of those things had yet to be done by her husband, who she refers to as “Irish” in some tweets, not even her kids.

The woman, who goes by Miss Potkin on Twitter, chronicled those days in a very comical Twitter thread.

At that point she believed there was some “movement” taking place as someone finally emptied the trash. Alas, that was as far as it went.

Things are really starting to get bad now.

“There is a pan on the cooker with a single sausage in it. It’s been there for two days,” she writes. “I can’t look at it because it’s turned the colour of the man that washes up in Cast Away.”

At this point, she started to get comments disparaging her for having such a messy house, completely missing the point.

“I see that judgey f***ing Twitter has woken up so let me say this once and be clear – We do not ‘live like this’,” she write. “This is a lesson in wanting to be heard and respected and not having to repeat yourself when things slip. We’re navigating the day-today in extraordinary times and for me, the past two days have been funnier than anything else. I think we’re all entitled to run our own experiments, be amused, push a situation to its limit if we so choose. No one needs to be lectured by those that have failed to see the silly joy in what’s happening here.”


“You’re gonna have good days, bad days, and a lot of f*** it days, but people don’t like being taken for granted, especially by the ones they love the most. Period,” she closed out her thread.

“THAT IS NOT WORSE THAN ‘LIVE LAUGH LOVE’ but yeah, it’s close. I f***ing hate myself. 🤮”
