Household chores have always been a challenge for many families. Moreover, now that lots of people have started working from home, household chores have become a real burden. Most of the time it's women who keep the house clean and tidy, but now that their husbands are spending much time at home as well, it's time for a redistribution of household duties.
This is exactly what a Twitter user Miss Potkin thought about, daring to conduct a little experiment. The woman decided to give up washing or tidying in the hope of finding out how much time it would take her family members to take over household chores. Ms. Potkin shared details of the experiment on her Twitter. Let's find out more about this funny story, which, of course, would not have happened if it wasn't for Potkin's strong will!
Potkin made up her mind to find out how her family would act if she gave up her household chores. Starting her experiment, she wrote on Twitter:
"Two days ago, I decided to stop doing the dishes. I make all the dinners and I am tired of having to do all the cleaning too. SINCE THEN this pile has appeared and at some point they are going to run out of spoons and cups and plates."
Pretty soon it became clear that the experiment would not be so simple.
The woman showed great patience. So did her husband.
Potkin also quit doing the laundry.
Perhaps this experiment was a real challenge for the woman.

Along with Potkin's patience, the home supply was running out.
Even taking a shower became a real quest.
Although the experiment proved lengthy, Miss Potkin never lost her sense of humor.
The details of what was going on in the house amused the Web users who followed the experiment.
It seemed that only Potkin knew some of the tricks and tips of keeping the house in order. Not cooking was the woman's toughest decision, but she wasn't about to give up.
Gradually the situation started to improve.
Slight progress could be seen.
But it was early to rejoice at it.
Finally, even a toilet roll appeared.
Ms. Potkin's family succeeded in this matter.
A small victory!
Slow progress could be seen.
And now we can finally say the experiment has proved to be a success!
It wasn't an easy challenge, but everyone in the family had coped with the task.
Despite her success, Ms. Potkin wouldn't like to go through it again.
The woman's actions may seem too drastic. However, the aim has been achieved and, more importantly, the conclusions have been drawn! Now Ms. Potkin's family will be more grateful for her hard work. Her example is incredibly educational since we can learn this important lesson without having to go through it ourselves.
