On June 3, 2023, @lindsaydonnelly2, a TikTok user, shared a video on her page addressing her husband’s claim that she does nothing around the house. In the clip, Lindsay, a mother of two, wrote, “My husband made a comment that I do nothing around the house. So for two days, I really did nothing around the house.” She added that during this time, she left for a two-day girls’ trip.
As Lindsay spoke, the camera panned from her mischievous expression to reveal a disheveled kitchen with used plates and scattered papers, followed by a messy dining and living room cluttered with clothes and gadgets on tables and sofas. The footage also showcased an overflowing laundry basket and a dirty bathroom.
The video quickly gained widespread attention, accumulating millions of views and over 20,000 comments. Responses varied, with some suggesting divorce and others expressing skepticism about the effectiveness of her approach. A user (@Frankly) remarked, “It’s sad you need to play his game. It still won’t work. He’ll pretend to not notice.”
Despite the skepticism, it appeared that Lindsay’s unconventional tactic yielded results. In a subsequent TikTok session with her husband, she claimed that he apologized for his earlier comment. The caption on the clip read, “He agreed that was a real 💩 thing to say.”
However, viewers of the follow-up video noticed a peculiar dynamic between the wife and her spouse. One commenter observed, “Why is she laughing like she’s going to be in trouble?” Another viewer advised her to “run,” expressing a sense of “sinister vibes” from her husband. Some even questioned whether the husband had apologized to her privately, rather than just on TikTok
