Household chores can get too much especially when it becomes one person's responsibility. A 36-year-old woman on Reddit asked if she was wrong for "going on strike" and refusing to clean until my kids and husband step up to help?" For two years, she did all the chores at home. "Up until about 2 years ago my kids all had chores that they did daily but of course with them getting older, it became more of a chore for me when trying to get them to do anything to help me out so I stopped asking. So, that's what makes me an AH, I think," she wrote.

Her husband was then 38 years old and she had three children who were 15, 14, and 11 years old. She said that her husband "hardly ever lifts a finger when it comes to housework". However, earlier he used to cook, clean, and even take out the trash. Things got worse when she returned from a business trip and her house was in shambles. "So, I hit a breaking point one day when I came home after a weekend business trip with work to a completely in shambles house. There were dirty dishes scattered and placed in various corners of my home, trash wasn't taken out, laundry was spewing over the top of our hamper, toothpaste lining the sink, etc. You get the point," the woman wrote.
