Managing a home is always a shared responsibility. However, some misogynists insist that household chores are a woman's responsibility. Even after single-handedly managing the household, some women don't receive the appreciation they deserve. One such underappreciated wife shared her frustration with being the only one who cares about cleaning the house. Popularly known as Mrs. Messy (@mrsmessytiktok) on TikTok, the woman has a passion for cleaning and posts several cleaning hacks. In one of her videos, when she revealed how her husband reacted when she stopped cleaning to teach him a lesson, it sparked a debate.

Mrs. Messy's video showed an utterly unkempt laundry room full of washed clothes that were not folded yet. "My husband says, 'I don't even know how can someone be as lazy as you are! You never do anything around the house'," said the wife. Hearing this, the wife decided to teach him a lesson by not putting away washed laundry for two weeks. She particularly left her husband's and kid's clothes to prove that if everyone doesn't pitch in for the household chores, they get piled up. But the trick didn't work. Her husband simply replied, "If you were better at doing stuff around the house, it would always look neat."

The wife tried to explain that the house would look neat if everyone helped, but her husband said, "No. You are incorrect. None of us are causing all this mess." The frustrated wife gave up the argument as the husband seemed completely unapologetic about demeaning her. The video went viral and gained over 21.3K comments. People rallied around Mrs. Messy to show her husband what would happen if she didn't take care of the chores and some even suggested ways to deal with the unsupportive man.

"Mine found out the hard way when he was left with the kids for about a week. He said the same before also," commented @netta4163. "So sorry dear, Some men can be so incomprehensible. Try to explain to him that you're not a maid but his wife. Try the last talk," wrote @njbokaps. "I have health issues now, I can’t bend down due to my spine. It shows how much I did daily! Sad he doesn’t respect you," wrote @bwlstyle. With many suggesting Mrs. Messy should stop doing any favors for her disrespectful husband, she posted a follow-up video.

When this video was posted, it had already been a month since the wife stopped cleaning. "I stopped cleaning the house and putting away clean laundry to prove to my husband that I was the only one doing everything the whole time," the wife said. To the internet's shock, the video showed the husband throwing away his wife's cleaning supplies since she doesn't clean anymore. Considering the wife's ardent passion for cleaning, what the husband did was quite inconsiderate and rude.

Mrs. Messy had overwhelming support from her followers, who invalidated her husband's response. "That’s your sign, honey. Just look after yourself and make plans to move out and move on. I’m so sorry you’re having to deal with this," commented @amandapttp. "Don't change anything. You don't need cleaning supplies, he needs them. Because now keeping the house clean is his job," wrote @_gosiaxx_.
