In the twisted game of household duties, OP stands her ground against her husband’s ‘Cinderella’ claims, igniting a passive-aggressive battle of wits and wills.
He’s No Cinderella!
OP’s husband’s sole contributions to housework – Saturday laundry duty and an occasional rendezvous with the dishwasher – seemed laughable compared to her efforts.
A late-night toilet cleaning session and a pity party from her husband spark OP’s outrage.
Just because you’re scrubbing your own mess once in three months, dear husband, doesn’t turn you into Cinderella!
OP, refusing to bend to her husband’s skewed perspective on chores, decides to give him a taste of his own medicine.
She Got Her Own Back by Mirroring His Behavior
She leaves the dishes unwashed, the kitchen unkempt, and dinner uncooked, mirroring his everyday behavior.
Despite numerous conversations and his dismissive responses, OP’s attempts to make her husband understand his unfair distribution of chores fall flat.
How antiquated the notion that some chores are solely women’s work!
Fueled by the frustration of being unappreciated, OP decides to take a stand. There’s nothing to be embarrassed about – she’s a grown woman demanding her due respect.
He Has To Fend For Himself
As her husband gets a whiff of his own behavior, his expectations for dinner are met with a sarcastic retort. Welcome to the world you’ve been living in, husband!
Faced with OP’s rebellion, the husband fends for himself and prepares a sandwich for dinner.
A few hours later, he steps into the kitchen and finds himself forced to run the dishwasher due to the piling, stinky dishes.
As OP enjoys her petty victory, the husband confronts her, only to find her standing firm on her stance.
But She’s Uncomfortable With Her Pettiness
Even the absence of water by the bedside doesn’t seem to stir any guilt in her – she points out yet another chore he has never once done.
Despite the satisfaction of teaching her husband a lesson, OP finds herself uncomfortable with her own pettiness. She seeks advice from a friend and plans to see a therapist.
As OP braces herself for a long day at work, she leaves us hanging on the edge, wondering what her homecoming might look like.
A Roller-Coaster of Emotions
In this roller-coaster of emotions and life lessons, OP’s story leaves us eager to find out what awaits her next.
Will the husband mend his ways, or will OP’s revolution continue? Tune in for the next episode of this real-life domestic drama!
