Husband finds way to break wife’s silent treatment – but others warn it won’t end well
A man who said his wife isn’t speaking to him has been warned his plan to break the silent treatment would more likely lead to a divorce.
In a series of videos posted to TikTok, user Trip_Uhl_D said he was looking for a way to get his wife to talk to him again after landing himself in her bad books.
The three clips captioned ‘I have a plan’ have racked up more than 13 millions views – but people warned him his bright idea was only going to make the situation worse.
It starts with the man turning off the water to the bathroom toilet, flipping around the batteries in the television remote, unscrewing lightbulbs, placing kitchen pans on the highest shelf out of the reach of his 5’2″ partner, and changing the TV language to Spanish – all in the hope she would come to him for help.
He continues by cutting the power to the coffee machine, changing the settings on her phone, disabling the Wi-Fi and even tightening the lid on every jar in the fridge.
At the end he says he just has to sit back and wait as she’ll soon have a reason to speak to him, and some were impressed with his “genius” idea to win her forgiveness.
But others warned he was simply digging himself into a bigger hole, as one commented: “Can’t imagine why she’s not speaking to you.”
A second said: “Oh she’s definitely going to start speaking you… ABOUT DIVORCE PAPERS.”
Another added: “RIP. You had a good run I guess.”
Someone else wrote: “My ex was so stubborn she would just buy a new TV, new toilet and new pots, just to keep the silence.”
