Twitter user Miss Potkin recently conducted a hilarious experiment with her family to find out what would happen if she stopped performing household chores. Potkin quit doing the dishes, laundry, and other activities to see if anyone would pick up the slack. She tweeted the disgusting results each day as her husband and children failed to step up and do the chores. One of her tweets said, “”There is a pan on the stove with a single sausage in it. It’s been there for two days. I can’t look at it because it’s turned the color of the man that washes up in ‘Cast Away.” (Bored Panda)
