Wife Documents Husband’s Hilarious Attempts To Make The Bed After Doing It Herself For 45 Years

For the first time in 45 years, Joanne Sterling from Manson, Washington, has put her husband Jim in charge of making the bed. And he’s doing a really good job. However, no matter how hard Jim is trying, he can’t seem to figure out what to do with the extra pillows. Amused by his struggles, Joanne started taking daily photographs of his attempts and uploading them to Facebook. The pics immediately went viral, and many can’t wait to see what Jim’s next arrangement is gonna be.

“Jim was put in charge of making the bed because I have always taken care of everything in the house while he was working. Now that we are retired, it’s time for him to pull his own weight around here!” Joanne told Bored Panda.

At first, Jim warmed up by making just his side but Joanne eventually decided to ask her husband if he could take care of the whole thing. “He did and started playing with the pillow arrangements to make me laugh,” the woman explained the origins of the series. “I hope it lasts for a while but I don’t know how creative he can get.”

Some of you observant folks might’ve noticed that one day Jim was on strike. “He learned he was getting some attention online and let the pressure get to him!” Joanne recalled. But don’t worry, Jim got used to his Internet fame and made up for the hiccup day.

“I can’t believe people are so amused by this,” Joanne added. “We try to make our relationship last by making each other laugh. I’m so glad people have been able to relate during this difficult time.”

Here’s what people said about the wholesome series

What to do with the decorative pillows? Toss them out. Can you imagine fussing with those things for 40 years?

Don't understand the point of decorative pillows at all. Pretty and useful pillows, yes, but the ones that most people toss on to chairs when they use the bed (or toss onto the floor) then, nope, don't get it.

This is awesome- a sense of humour turns a tedious task into something fun that peope will talk about. Great idea Jim!
