What comes to mind when you think of Japan?
For some (me, really), it’s the sushi. For others, it’s the cherry blossoms and possibly anime characters.
Apart from being the Land of the Rising Sun, Japan is to me, the Land of the Perfectionists.
They are very big on punctuality and are a total neat freak.
Isn’t it satisfying? The OCD in me is at peace.
As if they’re not only neat in public, most of the Japanese are organized at home too.
Take Marie Kondo for example. She took the world by storm when she shared life-changing organizational tips in hopes of inspiring everyone to tidy their house. Also, her show titled “Tidying Up With Marie Kondo” was released on Netflix on 1 January 2019.
I believe that was no coincidence. The goal here was to encourage all to start the year right, with a clean and tidy apartment.
With that in mind, it’s important to note that Marie Kondo does not represent the entire Japanese population.
Not everyone is as organized as her, like this Japanese man we’re going to talk about.
Japanese lady documents husband mess on Instagram
Unfortunately for most females who choose to cut back on hiring a helper, they are the designated doer of household chores and cleaning up whatever mess is present by other family members under the same roof.
This was one of the biggest pet peeves for a particular Japanese lady who had been cleaning up after her husband and nagging at him for five years now.
I guess this is the only thing her husband and Marie Kondo have in common…
However, it seems that the lady finally reached her limit. Even singers get tired of singing the same song.
The outcome? An anonymous Instagram account filled with nothing but the trail of tissue paper among other mess her husband (and once in a while, her daughter) leaves lying around the house.
At the time of writing, it has garnered 216k followers. Seems like plenty of people can relate to this.
Yes, the time for the world to witness the horror has finally arrived.
“Throw Away Your Trash”
According to SoraNews24, the account name literally translates to “throw away your trash”.
Getting an early start to the next working day, perhaps?
Now, I may have OCD but I’m not the tidiest person out there. Low-key impressed that there are people out there who do this acrobatic act with their hangers too.

The picture earlier can be justified but I’m with the lady on this because it’s a common sight at my boyfriend’s place. Isn’t it an eyesore to see a sink full of dirty dishes?
The Instagram account has a following of 198K users who are possibly like-minded women, wanting to know how long it would take for their husband to change for the better.
Despite the lady’s displeasure with her husband’s tidiness, she explicitly assured everyone that both of them have a good relationship.
Happy wife, happy life
Moral of the story: mess with your wife, and you’ll get your just desserts.
Fingers and toes crossed I don’t end up marrying a child who can’t clean up after himself. I guess if that happens and I’m at my wit’s end, I have to beat him at his game and be the messier one.
