Husband Finally Admits He’s Useless At Tidying
After years of firm denials and pretend offendedness, a Castlederg father of five has admitted he has ‘just been pushing the grease around the kitchen worktops’ and ‘moving stuff from one room to another’ without knowing what he was doing all along.
John McMeel (49) revealed the final straw was reached when his wife arrived home to find several wild cats licking the kitchen tables despite John having previously text her to boast about giving the house ‘a quare going over’. McMeel admitted he’s useless at the cleaning and will stick to bins and the fire in future:
“It actually feels good admitting it. I’ve pretended to be offended at her criticisms but, if I’m being honest, I haven’t a clue what I’m doing. I could never get the grease off the cooker and table worktops and I just ended up pushing it around and then spreading it out evenly again. The cats coming in to feast off the table was a bit embarrassing to be fair.”
Kate McMeel revealed how her husband would hoover rooms only to leave them dirtier and dustier that they were to begin with. Mr McMeel also admitted he couldn’t put on duvet covers, leaving the bedclothes looking like as if animals were hibernating in them.
“I am lethal at putting out the bins when I remember and can build up a good fire although the mess around the fireplace can be a handlin.”
McMeel has urged other men to admit defeat and stop trying to be the modern husband as it doesn’t work. He also called on all men to stay away from the washing machine and tumble dryer after his attempt to do a good turn in this discipline saw every piece of clothing reduce by two sizes as well as change colour.
