Mom Miranda Crimbring decided to come up with a little game to see which member of her family would “pick up the random piece of trash that they KNOW isn’t supposed to be there.”
In the now viral Facebook post, which has been shared over 296,000 times, Crimbring said that she created the “challenge” in order to prove a point.
Well, while trying to prove a point to my kids, we’ve just surpassed the 48hr mark of the “who will pick up the random…
The mom placed a piece of trash on the floor of their bathroom with a $5 bill hidden underneath it. She wrote:
Well, while trying to prove a point to my kids, we’ve just surpassed the 48hr mark of the “who will pick up the random piece of trash that they KNOW isn’t supposed to be there” challenge… Between the kids AND the husband, and MULTIPLE trips in and out of the bathroom, this little piece of heaven may just be in it for the long haul!
Thousands of people applauded the mom for her genius before she updated her followers on how the challenge had progressed.
Crimbring said in a comment:
BREAKING: The paper has been PICKED UP!! My daughter threw her dirty clothes on top of it before getting in the tub.. when she went to grab them afterwards, it flipped money side up and kind of slid across the floor. She gasped and then shrieked in surprise saying “Oh my gosh, this was under there… five dollars!”
But as Crimbring admits, that wasn’t even the “real kicker to the story.”
After removing the bill from the paper, she left the paper sitting on the counter…
Also, the response from the teenager when asked why he didn’t pick it up before: ‘I didn’t see it… wait…’
Needless to say, we had a nice long family talk afterward. I suppose only time will tell if things play out any differently in the future.
