Mom goes on a cleaning strike for 3 days in an 'apocalyptic' experiment

She added, "I know we are ALL tired but I am most tired. Me. I AM ALL THE TIRED."

An exhausted mom decided to stop doing the dishes, laundry and other housework. Twitter user @MissPotkin reached her breaking point and decided to go on a cleaning 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. Who will blink first? Not me," she tweeted on Wednesday, along with a picture of undone dishes piled up in the kitchen.

She added that she stopped doing the laundry too and wrote, "It’s getting a bit post apocalyptic. The piles are everywhere."

There were no toilet paper rolls in the washrooms and several bottles of body care items were empty.

At one point, @MissPotkin shared a video of her husband working hard "scraping rock hard old cereal off a bowl".

She even saw him loading the dishwasher. However, much to her disappointment, he did not switch the dishwasher on.

She said that she was running an experiment and explained, "We do not 'live like this'. This is a lesson in wanting to be heard and respected and not having to repeat yourself when things slip."

She added, "I know we are ALL tired but I am most tired. Me. I AM ALL THE TIRED."

Even though the dishwasher wasn't switched on, @MissPotkin breathed a sigh of relief when toilet paper appeared in the washrooms.

When the mum finally saw her husband switching on the dishwasher, she asked why didn't he do it earlier. He replied, "I ran out of time."

@MissPotkin was shocked when her husband asked her not to step into the kitchen as "there's mess on the floor" and started cleaning it.

Finally, after three days of no washing, picking up or tidying, she announced, "Well it's happened" with a heart emoji, however, she added that she was not going to 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.
