Mirror - A fed up mum has become a viral sensation after going on strike to teach her “disgusting” children a lesson. Jessica Stilwell refused to tidy up after her three daughters for six days and documented the chaos that followed on a blog. Without warning, the working mum, from Alberta in Canada, simply stopped washing dishes, doing laundry and cleaning up after her family. Instead, she took photos of the mess and uploaded them to Facebook, and then on her‘Striking Mom’ blog, along with humorous posts detailing the day’s events.
The silent protest began on October 1, when Mrs Stilwell wrote: “I recently went on a ‘mommy strike’ and have been sharing my experiences about it in a ‘logbook’ type fashion on Facebook. “I must admit I am very proud of myself for figuring this out. It seems I have waaaay more time on my hands now that I am not a full time maid. Yeah me!” The strike was prompted by a weekend spent alone with her daughters – 12-year-old twins and a 10-year-old, Olivia, Peyton and Quinn – while husband Dylan was away golfing. The social worker realised that, at the end of a busy day, none of the mess around the house was hers. Day by day, as the house became increasingly disgusting, Mrs Stilwell sat back with a glass of wine and recounted tales of “stinking” bowls of soggy cereal and her dog licking dirty dishes ‘clean’.
Hey this chick should be a Chicago public school teacher. They don’t like doing their job either. Bitch could fill out an application at home in Vancouver, get hired and just chill on her couch until Karen Lewis runs out of things to complain about which will literally be never. I feel like a matchmaker even suggesting it.
Imagine if everyone just quit their job like this though? If trash men stopped collecting trash, if police officers stopped protecting and serving the community, if bartenders stopped serving drinks. I mean chances are the Mexicans would step right in and dominate since the opposite of being unemployed and lazy is being a functioning member of society. We’d pretty much do a complete role reversal. But still, this is the president Mama Stilwell’s setting here. Hey babe, picking up after everyone is literally your job now. That’s what you signed up for when you poured sugar into the batter and baked a cake. Doesn’t matter if you tried 3 times and made 3 shitty cakes. You’re stuck with it and you gotta eat. That’s the deal.
