You’re a grown ass man, why tf can’t you clean up after yourself?! When I’ve nicely asked you so many effing times to close the cabinets because leaving them open is my pet peeve?!?! LORD HELP ME!!!!! 🤬😤

Why the HELL are so many men so effing lazy?!?! Why tf would you drop your clothes on the FLOOR instead of the laundry basket that’s RIGHT NEXT TO IT?!?! Our mothers raised their sons to be lazy, because this shit wouldn’t fly when I was a kid but when my brothers did it she just quietly picked up after them. Same experience goes for all my friends. Ladies, y’all better not be raising your sons the same way. The next generation of men cannot be this dumb!!! 🤬 I’m so sick of it! Rant over!
