Mum Sticks Money To Rubbish To See If Anybody Picks It Up
Many of us will remember a certain type of nagging from our childhood: 'pick that up', 'wash that after you've finished', 'put it in the laundry basket... not next to it', the list is endless.
Well, one fed up mum has set up an experiment to show just how little the other people in her family do around the house.
The anonymous mother posted her findings to Facebook, showing how she left notes attached to bits of rubbish with the words 'finders keepers' written on them.
It was in a bid to see whether anyone would be bothered to pick the rubbish up off the floor - y'know a job that would take around five seconds. Over SIX DAYS is what it took in reality and the litter still hadn't been retrieved.
Taking to social media, she wrote: "Needing something to inspire kids and husbands to tidy up around the house? Clearly this game hasn't worked here yet, maybe one day. For now, I'll keep upping the prize money, knowing it's coming back."
Pictures show AU $20 (£10/US $13) and AU $5 (£2.60/US $3.40) attached to a piece of paper strewn on the floor and the cardboard from toilet roll.
The post has now been liked over 4,500 times with lots of people praising - and relating - to the hilarious experiment.
One person wrote: "My kids would probably pick it up, take out the money, throw it back on the floor and forget about the entire purpose."
Another added: "The rolls would start to decompose in my house - no one would pick them up even if it saved their life."
Many other parents around Australia and beyond vowed to trial the 'experiment' for themselves and we're sure it will go as unsuccessfully.
You might be thinking pick the rubbish up yourself, save money and give us a proper parenting hack. Well, look no further because one woman has shared her 'first aid hack' with the hopes of helping others when it comes to pesky problems like splinters.
The woman, who lives in Australia, explained she uses the syringe that comes in boxes of children's Nurofen to remove offending items - from splinters and fragments of glass right through to bee venom.
