What followed was a series of photos showing the actions she had taken in response. She only washed her clothes (and her kids’).

She only changed the sheets on her side of the bed.

And she started labeling who bought which groceries.

Some viewers complained that the whole thing seemed petty, but most were on board with the TikToker’s tactics.

“Oh… your clothes are my clothes??? Sounds like I’m gonna donate them all to goodwill,” wrote @dannie_pip.

“Not petty,” @gloriabee62 added. “Did that with my husband. Left his laundry. He got the message.”

“Men be calling something ‘wifey material’ when it really is just a replacement for their mom taking care of them,” @food4thought95 scoffed.

In a follow-up video, @mumlifechoseme clarified that the way they split chores, putting up “adult laundry” is and has been one of her husband’s responsibilities.

“And he does like to weaponize incompetence by putting things in the wrong place or doing a half-assed job or putting it off for days at a time,” she said. “So it is something we’ve had to have conversations about.”

Still, she’s not planning to “throw the whole man away” — yet, at least.
