Woman Left Creasing By Husband's Attempt To 'Make The Bed'
Joanna Sterling, from Washington, told her husband that he had to "pull his weight" with chores around the house more, starting him off on the fairly easy job of bed making.
But she was left in hysterics to discover her hubby had absolutely no idea how to do it. In fact, Jim was so baffled by the scatter cushions that he thought they were supposed to be piled up against the wall.
Once he had sorted the duvet and normal pillows, Jim was left over with four more cushions and appeared to be baffled by what to do with them.
On the first day, he piled them all on top of each other, creating two identical totem-like piles with the yellow cushions on top.
Joanne said: "I just don't think he had any idea what to do with the extra pillows, so put them anywhere."
She was so entertained by her partner's attempts that she begun to take pictures of them every day, sharing the results on Facebook.
Daughter Jessy also shared her dad's embarrassing attempts at helping around the house on social media, where they went viral, racking up almost 20,000 likes, comments and shares.
As the days went on, Jim caught on to the fact his tidying was getting attention, and his attempts became more creative.
On day two, Jim laid the two yellow cushions and two floral cushions in a line in front of the head pillows, creating almost a second level.

On the third day, he hid all of the ornamental cushions underneath their functional pillows before piling all eight of the furnishings into the middle of their bed.
Was he was a viral hit, Jim played up to his new-found fame and began coming up with increasingly elaborate methods of presenting the pillows.
Joanne said: "His designs are funny, but honestly, I'm just so happy he is making the bed every morning.
"He still doesn't tell me about what he's done, he just leaves it as a surprise for me when I walk into the bedroom.
"The bed stays this way until we go to bed, and I giggle every time I pass by it.
"My favourite was the very first one because it made me laugh so hard. It keeps us both in a good mood.
"I couldn't believe the interest his little creations have had. I guess other couples can just relate to a husband not knowing what he's doing around the house.
"Now he thinks he's famous, I think it's starting to egg him on. He has even started incorporating props like teddies and even an inflatable flamingo."
We think Jim's bed making is the lockdown pick-me-up everyone needs!
