Almost everything women do for the house as part of chores goes unnoticed. The house inmates may not know the value of a task like placing everything at its designated spot around the house, doing laundry regularly, replacing the toilet roll and of course washing every dish in the kitchen to ensure the sink and the kitchen slab remain spick and span. But what if the person responsible for maintaining the order of things decides to do an experiment and go on a strike to see what happens to the order of things? A woman exactly did this to see how things unfolded at her home. For three days, she left the dishes, laundry and almost everything at her home undone. “Who will blink first? Not me,” she wrote on Twitter on day two of her unspoken strike.
“Two days ago, I decided to stop doing the dishes. I make all the dinners and I am tired of having to do all the cleaning too. SINCE THEN this pile has appeared and at some point they are going to run out of spoons and cups and plates,” Twitter user Miss Potkin wrote as she appeared visibly tired from doing all the household chores. What unfolded at her home for the next one day was nothing less than a war situation. All the pans and pots in sink, no spoon left for use, mess all around.

Day 3 – they’ve used the last of the big bowls and they’ve run out of spoons. No one is saying anything about the big pile but I can hear their brains ticking. No, family, I will not be loading the dishwasher today.— Miss Potkin (@MissPotkin) March 18, 2021
And not to talk about the dirty laundry that was strewn around the house, almost everywhere.
Let me know when you want to talk about the fact that I stopped doing the laundry too. It’s getting a bit post apocalyptic. The piles are everywhere. pic.twitter.com/9NEUIVExwE— Miss Potkin (@MissPotkin) March 18, 2021
At one point of time it appeared the husband had taken matters in his hands, but no. Things were still out of place, and in the sink to be precise. While the kitchen looked slightly clean on day three, there were some dishes left unwashed in and around the sink. The husband had placed the dishes in the dish washer, yes! But hadn’t switched it on. Lol.
But towards the end of day three, things did seem to fall in place as husband finally switched on that dishwasher, YES. Three days of not doing the dishes or the laundry or tidying up the house and this woman saw the mess unfold around the house.
The experiment, as the woman called it, literally kept her followers on the edge as she presented live updates from her home. Towards the end, she was glad that it things had fallen in place while she observed it all from a distance. However, she also vowed to not do such an experiment again.
“We keep our homes tidy because love. We cook food and set tables and fill the air with scents of roses and fresh laundry because love. Love is patient but love is also fucking tired because she works 14 hour days,” she wrote in the enticing thread.
