Woman Goes On Strike And Refuses To Do House Chores, Her Family Gets Angry At Her

We all need to appreciate our parents more.

I am well aware that not every parent out there is the same and a lot of them simply don’t care as much about their family as they let on. But the ones who do end up taking care of everything around the house and it isn’t easy. I don’t think I have to tell you how hard it is to do all the household chores, especially after you come home from work. We all need a break sometimes and there is nothing wrong with admitting that.

And that is exactly what happened with this particular woman. Her kids and husband used to help her with the chores around the house but as soon as she stopped asking them, they stopped helping her. I don’t think you need to ask to be helped when it comes to this as a family should know these things at the end of the day. So it is no surprise that this woman basically went on strike and refused to do any chores when she came home from a business weekend trip and was too tired.

Her family however didn’t appreciate this at all. You can read the whole story by scrolling below.

We start off the story with how it was in the past when it came to her household.

They used to help her with everything.

But that stopped as soon as she stopped asking.

So when she came back from a work trip, the house was quite messy.

Her husband quickly realized what was happening and started cooking dinner.

Her son also realized that his mother needed help and did as he was told.

Her daughter was not on board with this at all.

And that is why she thinks she was being too petty and should have been kinder.

To be honest, I understand that she could have tried a different method when it came to getting her point across and communicating better but she was tired of having to take care of everything around the house. And I am surprised that her family let all the chores pile up for the time she was gone rather than cleaning around the house themselves. They needed to learn a lesson and they definitely did. Her daughter however is throwing a tantrum and I hope she learns to do better.

However, most everyone agreed that she was not at fault.

Ofcourse, she could have communicated better.

But her family should also take some responsibility.

How could they have let the house turn into such a mess?

Even the laziest people should take care of things around their house.

And relying on one person to do everything is not okay in any sense.

This has been going on for a long time.

They were the ones with guests coming over so they should have known this would happen.

Atleast, her son quickly realized what was happening.

They sort of got what was coming to them.

It isn’t as if they are little children either.

We all need to learn how to be independent.

And she is a wife and a mother, not a maid.
