Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are at odds over the systemic disappearance of their household phone chargers. Teigen blames Legend, and we can certainly relate.
“I buy and leave all the phone chargers all around the house just so you can unplug them all and take them to work with you. all of them! I love that you love chargers! they’re all for you! I just love you that’s why I buy them. because you love them!” the model tweeted, sarcastically, on Wednesday evening.
Her tweet became an instant Twitter Moment. It was charming, funny, and hit home: Many spouses have a modern problem with accountability when it comes to these prized, snatch-able commodities. The more absent-minded one in the couple will habitually move chargers around the living quarters, never committing to one plug, or more sinisterly, dash off to work with them.
I’m married to the same kind of person. Who knew so many men loved chargers this way. Nothing makes my day like frantically looking for a charger when I’m on 2%. And he has them all. Every single one for one phone.— 💫✨lynnethedreamer✨💫 (@lynne816) February 8, 2018
For her part, Teigen has vowed vengeance:

I must confess to constantly rotating my home’s chargers with graceless aplomb, often changing ports or taking cords to the car. But if your husband drops a charger in the woods, does anyone notice?
