Her husband left a pile of dirty dishes she woke up to. However, he had a wholesome twist planned that changed her entire reaction to the situation.
Being in a relationship comprises all the elements like love, respect and understanding and also the little things and minimalistic gestures. As little as these gestures seem, they add massive meaning to one’s relationship and little by little, become huge over time. Similarly, Susan—who goes by @susandoingsusanthings on TikTok—shared through a video that these little things can also have the power to completely turn around one’s mood and reaction towards certain situations. In her video, she spoke about how her reaction towards a possible conflict changed in a jiffy, thanks to her husband’s thoughtfulness.
Sharing a pile of dirty dishes on screen, Susan explained, “My husband had people over for a big game last night and I looked at all these freaking dishes in the sink,” while feeling completely annoyed. No one likes to wake up to dirty dishes, especially those that one wasn’t meant to do in the first place. However, the woman explained that a note changed her entire attitude about the situation in seconds. While she was explaining, one could find the change in her tone and words. “And then I got this note,” Susan said, pointing towards a sticky note on the kitchen counter.
Right beside the sink of dirty dishes, there was a small piece of paper that read, “I got it!” with an arrow pointing toward the dishes. The note was from her husband, who had left it earlier, knowing that he wouldn’t be able to do the dishes at that time. However, his one-liner affirmed that he was taking responsibility, that there was nothing to fret about and that he had it covered. “What a good guy!” Susan said, feeling pleased with her husband. Elaborating further, she said, “See, the thing is just because he left a note, I feel like I can tackle this, I have the morning energy, it’s fine."
“I love the fact that he acknowledged that he left a mess in the sink and that, don’t worry, he’ll take care of it later,” the woman explained. “Leaving a simple note instantly made me not care about the dishes in the sink! I love communication and we have come so far!” the caption read. Several people applauded the husband for his astute decision and communication. @.boomerlaert said, “I love this communication. He was too tired to do it after a fun party, but he knew that if he didn’t do it, you would be annoyed.” @saphirm said, “The fact that everything is in the sink is quite something already.”
@katfluff said, “It’s that easy! Like do I want to do the dishes in the sink after hosting? Heck no! Let me sleep and I’ll do it in the morning. But that note changes everything!” @reneethomas66 said, “Clearly, the love for one another is real. Thank you for sharing such a priceless moment. It’s truly the little things that matter so much!” @reaumanchef said, “Yeah, that’s great. Great on him for taking responsibility and great on you for letting him do it in his time.”
