Man asks his wife what’s on her mind and her response wasn’t what he expected

mindmap.PNG

A man on Reddit recently asked his wife what was on her mind. If he was expecting her to reply with a standard, passive-aggressive “fine”, he was way off the mark.

Instead she got a piece of paper and drew a detailed representation of exactly what she was thinking about. And that was A LOT.

Much of what this wife was worrying about, we can all identify with. “Laundry, dinner, dishes, upstairs” and “I have student debt” featured, as did "Did that person look at me funny? Am I looking at them funny?" and “My kids are so awesome and evil at the same time”. 

But there are a few more random thoughts like “Doctor Who theme tune”, “Disney Disney” and “Girl Scouts”.

We really hope the husband in question is called Stephen because she writes his name surrounded by hearts and adds “Makes me happy, make him happy, is my best friend, we should do it now.”

The mind map has been viewed over 1.6 million times, with one reader commenting: “As another woman, yep. Really difficult to explain to husband. Should just start drawing diagrams…”
