👩🍳👨🍳 Couple argues over messy kitchen, woman stops cleaning to prove point
A couple argues over cleaning responsibilities in the kitchen. The woman is the better cook and cooks about 80% of the time, leaving the man with an easy clean-up. However, when the man cooks, there's a mess everywhere, and he does not clean up as he cooks. The woman has asked him to clean as he cooks, but he refuses and says that the rule is one person cooks, the other cleans. Fed up, she decides to make a big pot of chili and not clean as she works, leaving the mess for the man to clean up. He gets upset and calls her names, but she stands her ground, and he eventually cleans up the mess. The couple still argues over who should clean, and the woman wonders if she was wrong to stop cleaning to prove her point. Read on to see what others think and share your thoughts.
