She thought she could snoop and get away with it, little did she know 🤔

The mother-in-law was snooping around the couple's bedroom, but she didn't know what was coming. The wife had set up a special surprise for her mother-in-law that she would never forget. She had covered the bedroom and office doorknobs in glitter and rigged a folder of glitter over the office door.

When the mother-in-law opened the door, she got covered in glitter and was not happy. The wife's bold move has sparked a debate: was she justified in her actions, or was she in the wrong?

Now, let's take a look at what the Reddit community had to say about this scenario.
