A Japanese woman has found the perfect way to vent about her husband's chronic messiness: a secret Instagram account.
Many of us have experience with sloppy husbands. From dirty socks left on the floor to dishes piling up in the sink, most wives are no strangers to their husbands' neglect of household duties. Even if spouses make an agreement about who cleans the house, there are some basic, common-sense systems that help keep things running smoothly. Like putting used tissues into the wastebasket, for example.
Constantly picking up another person's careless messes can become incredibly frustrating. One wife had enough of her husband's laziness and needed an outlet.
Instagram account @gomi_sutero posts photos of the ridiculous mess her husband leaves behind, along with hilarious captions. The username means "Throw your trash away" in Japanese. The whole concept is definitely petty (why waste your energy on this?), but we are also totally laughing.
Photos posted include crumpled socks on the floor, moldy pastries, an unchanged toilet paper roll, and tissues that did not quite make it into the trash can.
Supposedly, the account is secret. The descriptions asks the reader to keep it confidential, and includes an apology to the husband should he ever find it. However, the woman also occasionally posts photos of her daughter, so we are suspicious about whether the account is truly under wraps.
With over 200,000 followers, it is clear that lots of people relate to @gomi_sutero's plight. There is something about those little messes that just feel like microaggressions to those of us who are tidy!
We are wondering if this woman has ever confronted her husband about his sloppiness. If she has not, venting via Instagram is totally unfair to him. We are also wondering if he is truly a messy guy, or she is more of a neat freak. Clearly, it is a little bit of both. More power to her if she has found a way to cope!
