Man Constantly Mocks Unemployed Wife for Doing Nothing, Finds a Note after Ambulance Takes Her Away — Story of the Day

Written by Alex Miles

An pompous man routinely mocks his wife for being a bad housewife, but subsequently regrets his comments when karma teaches him a severe lesson.
Shannon Miles expected to be able to balance work and home life quickly after the birth of her first child, Claire. She wasn’t entirely wrong, though. She was able to pull it off flawlessly. When she gave birth to twins Lucas and Justin, though, things grew more difficult for her.

Raising three children while working was taxing, and she made terrible mistakes at home because she couldn’t focus properly. Sometimes she’d burn the breakfast, and other times she’d forget to turn off the iron or end up pressing the clothes while they were still hot.

Shannon had a hard time cleaning and looking after the house

Martin became irritated with his wife after witnessing her ineptness in handling both the house and her job. He told Shannon she had to stop her career and care for their children full-time. The woman paused and claimed she’d handle all sides, but it wasn’t going to happen, so she had to resign.

But that wasn’t the only thing that had changed in her life since the birth of her twins. After Shannon became a stay-at-home parent, she found Martin was frequently irritated with her. He was always chastising her for anything she did.

Shannon was to blame if there were any unclean dishes. Shannon was to blame if their children’s toys were left on the living room floor. Shannon was to blame if the dish was overly salty.

Shannon was to blame for everything that went wrong, and Shannon, according to Martin, was not supposed to make mistakes. As a result, whenever something went wrong, Martin would strike out at his wife, accusing her of laziness and claiming she could never do anything well!

“I can’t believe you’re the same lady I fought my mother to marry, Shannon,” Martin would insult her frequently, recalling their previous relationship when Martin had begun dating her against his mother’s desires.

Shannon became a homemaker after quiting her job 

When Shannon heard Martin say those things, she definitely felt horrible, but she glanced at her children and didn’t say anything since she didn’t want her family to break apart. Martin never got it, and the man finally crossed the line one day….

“SHANNON! Are you deafeningly deafeningly deafeningly deafeningly deaf Now is the time to come here!” Martin screamed angrily.

Lucas and Justin’s first birthday was on that day, and they had a party at home. Shannon was in the twins’ room that night, singing them a lullaby and tried to put them to sleep, but Martin made it impossible because the babies started sobbing as they heard him.

After placing the babies in their cradles, Shannon dashed to the living room. “What the hell is wrong with you, Martin? You can’t keep your mouth shut, can you? I’m having trouble getting Lucas and Justin to sleep, and Claire just fell asleep!”

Shannon and Martin had organized a birthday party for Justin and Lucas

“Are you having trouble?” Martin sarcastically laughed. “I suppose you’ve forgotten what you’re supposed to do, babe. After all, you don’t have to work for us!”

“Martin, are you serious? Stop pretending as if you help us a lot! Everything around the house is done by me, from the laundry to the clothes to the dishes!”

“Shannon, take a look! I’m not here to listen to your “feminist” rant. Make sure the dishes are done after you’ve put the kids to bed. Because I’m tired, I’m going to bed.

A stinky kitchen is the last thing I want to see first thing in the morning!” Martin stated angrily, pointing to their overflowing kitchen sink.

“Martin, you can’t be serious! How could you expect me to do everything on my own? I had to prepare meals for everyone, and now I’m occupied with the babies. Can’t you at the very least assist me?”

“What are you going to do? Help?” Martin burst out laughing. “Shannon, it’s your job. At the very least, do it right the first time. Okay?” Before leaving for their bedroom, he added.

Martin lashed out at Shannon 

“Martin, Look…” Shannon had only barely begun speaking when she became disoriented. She said, clutching the table’s edges tightly “Martin, I haven’t had the opportunity to eat since the morning. Can you do it?” Shannon’s head felt heavy and she slumped to the ground before she could continue her sentence.

The vase on the table tumbled and smashed into pieces as Shannon collapsed, generating a loud noise that alerted Martin. He scowled when he glanced around and noticed Shannon had passed out. “Get up, Shannon! Are you able to hear me? It’s not hilarious if you’re just pretending!”

The man became concerned when Shannon did not react. He quickly dialed 911 and raced to the kitchen for a glass of water. Shannon was pelted with water, but she didn’t wake up!

Mrs. Cameron, Martin’s next-door neighbor, agreed to watch the kids while he waited for the ambulance.

Martin thought every minute felt like a lifetime, yet the wait was only 10 minutes long. Martin hurried out to the ambulance as the paramedics arrived, carrying Shannon in his arms. Shannon had collapsed owing to weariness, according to the physicians, and would be monitored for a while.

Martin came home late from the hospital and went to the kitchen for a glass of water when he tripped on broken vase fragments. When his sight was pulled to a note on the floor, he crouched and began gathering them up. He took it from the shelf and began reading it. Shannon had a to-do list.

Martin found Shannon’s to-do list

5.00 a.m. – Get up!

5.30 a.m. – Take a shower and prepare Claire’s school bag

6:00 a.m. – Babies’ milk. Also, Claire should be awake by now

7:00 – Wake Martin up (Why can’t he get up on his own?)

7:30 – Start preparing breakfast

8:00 – Claire’s school bus arrives

8:15 – Martin’s clothes need to be ironed, and his lunch needs to be packed

9:00 – Martin leaves (Free time, hehe)

Till 10:00, you can relax, Shannon! Babies need to be fed, don’t forget! And you have to clean the dishes and Clarie’s room.

12:00 – Lunch

1:00 – Claire comes back

2:00 – Claire’s tuitions

3:00 – Pick Claire up

4:00 – Bake cookies for Claire 

5:00 – Start dinner preparations

6:00 – Martin comes back. Babies should be asleep by now.

7:00 – Have dinner

8: 00 – Spend time with Martin 

8: 00 – Clean the dishes

9: 00 – Laundry and prepare for the next day

10: 00 – Read a book (If you’re not dead!)

You can do it, Shannon! 

Shannon, you’ve got this!

When Martin read the list, he couldn’t believe his eyes. Shannon wasn’t available for any part of the day. She was constantly preoccupied with something. It’s no surprise she was fatigued! Then I started yelling at her all the time! Martin felt guilty about hitting her.

He asked for a leave of absence the next day and began to clean the house, but he couldn’t even get halfway through Shannon’s to-do list. To begin with, he awoke at 10 a.m. and found he had already forgotten nearly half of his to-do list. Starting with burnt toast for breakfast and finishing with a saltless soup for dinner, the rest of the day didn’t go as planned.

Shannon was hospitalized 

Martin knew he shouldn’t have been so harsh on his wife at that point. She went above and above to help them! So on his way to meet Shannon in the hospital, he stopped by a flower shop and purchased her favorite flowers.

At the hospital, he presented them to Shannon and apologized to her. “Please accept my apologies, sweetie. You fainted due to weariness, according to the doctors. I apologize for being so rude with you.”

Shannon was caught off guard by her husband’s unexpected gesture. “Martin, are you all right? That is to say…”

Before Shannon could finish, Martin took a step forward and held her. “I’m sure I am. Could we please stay in this position for a while?”

“Are you sure you’re okay, Martin?”

“Yes, you’re right, darling. I apologize, and I adore you!”

Shannon told herself, a little taken aback by her husband’s surprise care for her, “I love you too, honey,” but she was delighted he was there for her.

Martin bought a bouquet for Shannon

Since then, Martin had transformed into an entirely different guy. He hired a nanny to help Shannon at home, and he assisted his wife with chores on weekends while their nanny was away. Martin eventually discovered, although late, that being a housewife is a difficult task!

What can we take away from this narrative?

You can’t comprehend someone’s position unless you put yourself in their shoes. Martin attempted to complete Shannon’s list for a day but failed miserably.

Everyone’s occupation should be respected. It takes a lot of hard work and effort to complete any endeavor, no matter what it is. Martin discovered this the hard way when he spent a day in Shannon’s shoes.
