Weather you’re dating, engaged or married, if you’re part of a couple, and if the other half of that couple is a man, then you’re most likely going to be able to relate to the following situation.
Here we go. We invited friends or family over. Maybe it’s a casual dinner party. Maybe it’s your parents who are staying with you for the weekend. Regardless of the situation, people who do not live in your home are coming over…soon…and your home is not ready.
You know what we’re talking about. It’s a mess. The sink is overflowing with dishes. You can’t remember the last time you vacuumed, or maybe you just vacuumed but junior tracked in sand from the playground again. If you have kids, their toys are all over the living room. Basically, it looks like a tornado hit your house.
Nothing motivates a woman to clean more than company coming over. If only men were motivated the same way.
One woman, Emily, also known as Twitter user @houseandhens, tweeted about what it’s like for her when she asks her husband to clean. This is all too relatable.
She’s not the only one. Multiple people jumped on the bandwagon and shared what happens when they ask their significant other to clean.
Here are 10 of the most ridiculous things men have really done when asked to clean the house.
1.Clean 1 vacuum with another vacuum
@hollymarieau shares, “We had my daughters 8th bday party Saturday before it started I found mine vacuuming his shopvac with our regular vacuum cleaner…”
2. Powerwash the deck
@ElleJaneGlory writes, “Me ‘babe your parents will be here I. 2 hours can you put fresh sheets on their bed and vacuum the guest room?’ Him ‘clean out my closet and go power wash the deck? Say no more.’”
3. Paint the basement walls
@chirish01 can relate too. “YES. My life. Hours before we had guests over last time, he decided to paint the walls in the basement. Our basement is unfinished, soooo…the cement walls that no guest will ever see are nice and bright white now.”
4. Paint the garage
@_MomToAPrincess adds, “Are we married to the same man? Before our Friendsgiving party he decided it was time to paint the garage and build our dog a new bed… that was clearly more important than cleaning up the ten thousand baby toys ”
5. Disappear in the bathroom
@LindsayHughes12 writes, “Or…they say ‘I have to go to the bathroom’ and you never see them again”
