Cleaning your house or apartment can be a Sisyphean task. As soon as it’s spotless, it’s promptly destroyed again, and one Ohio mother has had enough.
To keep her living room in perfect shape for Thanksgiving dinner, she’s closed it off to the rest of the family.
People take desperate measures to keep things clean. We’ve had a Post-it note on our guest bathroom for the last week because it’s actually clean and my brother is coming to visit. Closing off a whole room—especially one with the main TV—weeks before a holiday is pretty extreme, but people could relate. Nick Denbow’s tweet has been retweeted more than 14,000 times.
So far the strategy is working. Denbow, 17, told BuzzFeed that not even their two dogs have entered the room. Clearly, this mom has earned her title of “Queen of the castle.”
