- Aussie mom cracked up her followers when she stopped putting toilet rolls away
- Adele Barbaro stopped to pick up rolls to see if her family would, they didn’t
- At the time the mother shared the post, 12 empty rolls lay across her bathroom
- “I expect this room to just fill up with toilet rolls eventually,” she joked
- Adele is known and loved for sharing the unglamorous side of parenthood
- Other Australian mothers joked that they felt the shared problem in their ‘souls’
An Australian mother who started an experiment to see what would happen if she stopped throwing away empty toilet rolls was shocked by the end result.
Mother and founder of Feminae Adele Barbaro, who lives in Melbourne, carried out the failed ‘social experiment’ to protest that she always has to pick up the empty rolls.
Unfortunately, she now has twelve empty rolls sitting in her bathroom.
Australian mother Adele Barbaro stopped to pick up empty toilet rolls to see if anyone in her family would pick them up, but sadly no one did.
“In protest a few weeks ago I quietly stopped collecting toilet rolls and putting them in the bin,” she explained on her latest Instagram post.
‘It’s been a bit of a social experiment to see if anyone else in my family would do it.
‘They haven’t. I expect that eventually this room will just be completely full of toilet rolls and that my family will continue to ignore them and just switch toilets and use the other toilet downstairs.’
Adele is known for sharing relatable and honest content about family life and parenting
Mums across Australia flooded Adele’s ‘relatable’ post with support.
“I feel this in my soul,” said one mother.
“Mine stack them vertically,” added another.
“I do this and then I just give in,” another woman commented.
‘We got to 42 rolls before I threw up. It confuses me,’ one woman laughed.
‘Omg I did too! I ended up losing the plot and took all three kids and the man to the bathroom, I took the empty roll from the holder and made them all follow me to the bin where it goes!’ another full woman shared.
An Australian mum put money in rubbish around her house in a hilarious experiment to see if anyone would put it in the bin and claim the prize
In the past, an Australian mother would see how often chores were being done in her house when she wasn’t doing them.
She taped a $20 bill to an empty toilet roll and laid it face down with a “finders keepers” note taped to it.
After six days, no one had picked up the rubbish.
‘Do you need something to inspire children and men to clean up the house? Obviously this game hasn’t worked here yet, maybe one day,” she captioned the photos she shared on Facebook.
‘For now I will continue to raise the prize money, knowing it will come back.’
