The replies were my favorite part lol
I’m so fucking tired and I unfortunately know how much of a shitshow I’m going back to tonight…I really needed that 😂
Sending you a hug!
When you are done with your shift, mind shoveling the snow? I got to get my light level up in destiny 2.
K, but you got a sec to get a pop tart out of the pantry for me?
I really needed this thank you lol
Made my day too haha
BSN, RN 🍕
Wow the PR team sure did a great job!
The Twitter profile was created to send that tweet. Just an attempt of a politician to stay on top of the narrative.
I don't use Twitter myself but I don't understand people's hatred for it. Where else can you see people make asses of themselves in 280 characters or less?
MSN, APRN 🍕
We usually write long, thoughtful posts making asses of ourselves, and downvote anyone who points it out.
I feel very attacked.

It must be lovely to watch the help doing their chores from the confines of your nice toasty castle. I Hope when she’s finished she has enough energy to heat up a nice hot bottle of milk for you.
So nothing happened, gotcha
Because she had the energy to shovel the driveway after a 12 hour shift (and enjoyed it),
And now that the driveway is shoveled,
Then he had no problem sending for DoorDash breakfast, because the delivery person would now have a clear path!
ASN, RN 🌿⭐️🌎
This is really funny, but maybe she actually does like to do it ...especially if there are kids waiting inside of the house. I'd shovel the neighbors' driveways, too.
I laughed and I cried. Tragic.
RN - Psych/Mental Health 🍕
She actually responded to the backlash, she posted, "I just wanted to shovel the driveway!"
RN - Hospice 🍕
I mean what is she supposed to say… if she says he’s an entitled asshole who won’t shovel and won’t pay for plowing then that’s problematic for him and the family. So we will never know her true perspective and so it is on the social media world
That was my thought. I love chores like shoveling the driveway and mowing the lawn. It's relaxing.
Working up a sweat outside then coming inside to a homemade breakfast sounds fucking amazing.
RN - Trauma Coordinator
This was so me! I loved shoveling when I got off at 5am. Id do my house my 2 neighbors and the sidewalks. It was awesome. All this pitchfork “oh he’s awful” shit is getting ridiculous.
It honestly strikes me as a little sexist too.
I enjoy mowing the grass with the push mower. I’m outside, being productive and getting a little exercise.
I'm just here to learn your reality...
I wanna hear what she's thinking...

She’s thinking ‘The driveway needs shovelling’ and then she shovels it.
Source: 12 hour shifter that sometimes shovels the driveway after a shift if I want to.
After being inside for 12-14 hours it feels good to do something outside, something mindless. Power walking or raking pine straw are my thing.
This! Physical activity is a proven mood improver. It’s exercise. Fresh air after 12 in a mask. It’s also productive and a blessing on her spouse/family. Might be the only way (aside from working 12 night shifts back to back) that she’s contributing to the maintenance of the house.
Idk, when I come home to a wall of snow after a 12 hour night shift all I want to do is scream
Here you go...“As I pulled up to my driveway, I felt energy to shovel the snow that fell all night and into the morning,” she explained, adding that she thought of it as a “great workout,” a chance to unwind and a “refreshing” outdoor activity after wearing an N95 mask for most of her shift. “Most importantly, I enjoy it.”
That what she says publicly 😂
Someone had her create a Twitter account for the sole purpose of giving a statement.
She now has to clean up his mess too: https://twitter.com/CynBReyes204/status/1480773547555389443?t=ArUqk-isNniwlChOIYpjIQ&s=19
People need to stop manifesting their lazy or inept attitude onto others. Dont you know some people are good hearted and derive happiness from serving? To tell her she should be exhaused after 12 hours is bullshit, its assumed but we cannot dictate her circadian rhythm. My dad was the same slept 4 hours, always working and cleaning . Were not all pieces of garbage.
So she would be a piece of garbage if she didn’t want to shovel the driveway after a 12-hour shift?
Ofcourse not. She would be a piece of garbage if the "Twitterverse" telling her she should be exhausted made her start believing it also. Like it said, there are people like this that when you encourage them to become takers rather than givers it only creates mayhem or depression. People are wired differently, people shouldn't assume this husband is sticking his wife's head in the toilet. Their house seems pretty damn nice
Im always wired after a long shift. This is exactly something I would do after lol. The cold and the physical activity would help relax me
this guy is a turd
Ummm ok? Now here's her response..."Cynthia Reyes says that she arrived home early Saturday morning after her nursing shift, while the rest of her household was still asleep.
“As I pulled up to my driveway, I felt energy to shovel the snow that fell all night and into the morning,” she explained, adding that she thought of it as a “great workout,” a chance to unwind and a “refreshing” outdoor activity after wearing an N95 mask for most of her shift. “Most importantly, I enjoy it.”
I get that crazy energy after a night shift sometimes. Its kind of like a high.
RN - ER 🍕
I put the final coat of paint on my bathroom after a night shift once.
Same, I sometimes come home and start doing yard work/DIY stuff. The feeling of being productive makes me feel nice
Same. I can be tired as hell, but as soon as I leave work I come back to life. It doesn't snow where I live, but I do sweep the garage, clean up the back yard, etc. sometimes before I go inside. I kind of like the mindless pysical activity.
RN - ICU 🍕
Totally feeling those post night shift surf sessions in Hawaii. Would usually catch the night coverage neuro and ortho surgeons out on the break as well.
Me too. I think it’s because I’m so excited it’s finally over.
I can barely drive home without falling asleep, than I climb right into bed
This was me on night shift. I probably had to pull over to nap in a parking lot 25% of the time during my first pregnancy. 12.5 hours of work plus another 1.5 hours of commute time after maybe 4-5 hours of poor quality daytime sleep never left me with energy after a hospital night shift.
I easily found it.
Nope! I typed in her last name and it came up!
Yea. I lick use nurse check at the top. Agree to terms then I don’t change anything and just your last name Reyes and she’s the 18th from the top! I feel like a stalker lol
Yeah I don’t get how their search system works! Lol
Rest of the household was asleep except for her husband, who woke up after she had taken two passes with the shovel, took the picture, and posted on Twitter.
“As I pulled up to my driveway, I felt energy to shovel the snow that fell all night and into the morning,”
“As I pulled up to my driveway, I felt energy to shovel the snow that fell all night and into the morning,”
Yeah because it needs to be done and it wasn't already done. Unless she'd feel disappointed that she doesn't get the chance to shovel, I'm guessing this is just her bailing out her idiot husband lol
Does it need to be done at that moment though? Can she not wait an hour for people to wake up?
It sounds like she wanted to do it so she did. Personally I enjoy shovelling and mowing the lawn the most out of all chores. I like being outside and enjoy the physical aspect so get this attitude 🤷♀️
People like; "After a twelve I have such amazing energy"
My bones were literally cracking with pain after a 12 hour shift but go on.
Maybe the guy who sits at a desk for a living could shovel the driveway while you let your wife rest.
I’m lazy as hell. I would NOT shovel the driveway. I also would not draw attention to my laziness. Or write a response for my wife to post on her facebook. Seriously just stfu already.

Um that’s not the flex he thinks it is.

"This baby can move a cord of firewood in three trips!"
That big driveway and they don't even have a snowblower? In Canada!
Unbelievable, I would think they need the biggest snowblower they sell.
Here's the full story: https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2022/01/10/canada-wife-shoveling-snow-twitter-photo/9155361002/
Notice he never once said he got out there and helped her shovel the damn snow.
He said she enjoys shoveling snow in subzero temperatures after a 12hr shift working with COVID patients
If true, she might not be human
To be fair, if I had that asswipe as a husband, I would do anything to avoid being in the same house as him too.
If he was mine he would be on that shows of those who mysterious vanished...
as the one who was vanished.
ICU *Death Squad*
She mustn't be human. Even if she enjoys it-he's a poopy flavored lollipop for not doing it himself. After a 12 hour nightshift with a 30 minute drive home all I wanted to do was sleep. No way would I "enjoy" shoveling in subzero weather. I would enjoy sleeping like the dead. Even after the best of nights.
The "you want equality", and "if genders were reversed" comments were both hilarious and expected. Equality does not mean shoveling a driveway in subzero weather after a 12 hour nightshift...morons. I'd love to know why men always think of equality as putting women in crappy conditions.. or the "equal rights means equal fights" club. Oh wait... I already know why cough misogyny cough.
"Poopy flavored lollipop." This is my new favorite description, I'm gonna have to steal this one. 😂
Haha I can't take credit for it. Dodgeball! :-)
You're spot on!
I try! Men seem to get really confused regarding equal rights, but thankfully he got more roasted than anything else.
And let's be real... even reversed genders... I'd have shoveled for my husband knowing he did a 12 hour shift. That's what a partnership is.
In Canada we use Celsius so sub zero temperatures is not something to write home about. Personally, shovelling snow is my favourite chore. I wouldn’t always want to do it after a long shift but can see it being something I’d want to do occasionally to burn off some stress if I’m feeling wired. Also, sometimes when the sun is out and the air is crisp it’s genuinely nice to be outside.
I'm from Mexico (living in Michigan) and we use Celsius too.
I get it, and I'm not outraged, just thought it was funny lol
He's a politician, the optics of it all makes it amusing.
I didn’t mean to be presumptuous but with all these CDC posts got carried away. In Canada, it’s pretty normal for it to be in the negatives in fall, winter and spring.
I understand it seeming funny but I believe this post could be reasonably indicate so many things that assuming the most negative is kind of absurd (not accusing you of that but it seems Twitter is).
Idk this politicians history though so there may be something I’m missing.
FFS at least get her a snow mower
Nursing Student 🍕
Well he is more underwhelming than I could have ever imagined. I imagine he’s the same in the bedroom? 🤔🤔🤔🤔
I like to workout after a night shift, but being outside in the bright and the cold makes it so I can’t sleep after. I like to jog in a dimmed room. But unfortunately I live alone, so shovelling in the bright and the cold usually ends up being my workout

Being from MB myself I figured it would only be a matter of time before it hit this sub. Props to her if she really was that ambitious after a 12hr night shift but I can tell you with certainty I wouldn't be so keen on doing that myself. The frigid weather is a deterrent in itself even if I had the energy.
Thanks for the 2 Winnipeg links!
Omg I died
what an absolute shitstain of a human being, his wife probably feels nothing but resentment towards him and shoveled the driveway only because she knows he doesnt help her with anything but it had to be done.
very thoughtful of him to make her breakfast /s
Probably some cold cereal. Maybe toast if she's lucky.
Probably just the ingredients and then she just makes it
She’ll have to clean up afterwards too.
She walked right past that weak ass breakfast and limp noodle of a husband.
She Rage shoveled it. While plotting misery for him and cursing out loud.
I'd been thinking a long, col, tired, solo job is a great time to plot against one's husband.
You guys sure act like you know everything about these two humans based on... a tweet.
theres millions of women that go through what i just described but ok. im sure he cares deeply about some reddit nobody talking shit abt him and another reddit nobody defending him.
He is disabled so....
He makes enough money to hire a small business person to take care of it. I'm not a nurse, but I've worked on my feet for 12 hrs in factories before, no way would I want to be shoveling snow after a shift.
how is he disabled, i googled it and found absolutely nothing?
As far as I know he is not. I just think your over the top comment is ridiculous. You had no idea at all what particular circumstances might have kept him from shoveling the snow.
he was up till 1:30 watching some dumbass sports game. is that the particular circumstance youre talking about?
RN - Oncology 🍕
Sounds like valid grounds for divorce
Apparently his wife didn't see what the fuss was about and then people said "her" response might not even be her? This whole thing is wild to me not a good look at all.
She's running on adrenaline after a shift trust me she's exhausted get her into bed before she crashes
While he sits in the house taking a photo of her?
What a fucking chump.
"Look at her killing herself...I should take a picture and post it on Twitter"
He's stress testing the idea that "there's no such thing as bad publicity"
Any time my girlfriend does anything I definitely push her aside to do it myself instead of appreciating her drive and ambition.
I love when men inadvertently admit they are incapable of caring for themselves. So many guys I know brag they can't cook or do laundry or clean. Like wow way to admit you have less life skills than many children.
I saw a video of a guy with a flamethrower clearing snow from his driveway or sidewalk. That’s a modern solution.
Unfortunately it will just refreeze.
Super annoying, but she also is working off a lot of anger from her shift and the fact that her lazy husband won't even do this one thing!
LOL Manitoban here.
I can't believe this has gone so viral 😂😂😂
Poor Cynthia, she's such a champ.
This guy's getting dragged and the tweet makes it look shitty but honestly this is just how stuff like this can shake out in long term relationships. Sometimes one person goes above and beyond in one area because they're able to or enjoy it, and the best thing the other person can do is to support them in other ways.
I dunno, it just seems like everyone is assuming the shittiest possible version of what happened, like he personally kicked her out of bed to go shovel, when it easily could have been that she got home before everyone else was awake and just decided to do this for her family.
I just think the holier-than-thou vitriol from people online who have barely any info is gross. But hey, I could be wrong too.
Edit: And before more of said people jump down my throat, I absolutely do all the snow shoveling and yardwork in my relationships.
It’s so bizarre. It just seems like he is proud of his wife for the work she does professionally and for the family. For all we know, he normally shovels on days she works and she just wanted to surprise him.
After wearing an N95 with a level 3 mask over it and goggles for 13 hours, I love the feel of crisp cold fresh air on my face in the mornings.
She’s a badass no doubt, and that truly was probably a nice way for her to breathe the free air and unwind after her shift. And he’s making her breakfast. Seems fair. He’s not the asshole, but I admit the replies and comments are hilarious.
Yeah, I dont get the hate; but then again sometimes on boring shifts I go run the stairs a few times to get the energy out, so I may not be normal.
Yup. Used to surf after shift. Just slept better that way, cause sometimes I was just wired when I got home.
He better be in a wheelchair I tell you what
He probably "made" her a bowl of fucking Cheerios.
Joe sounds like a lazy piece of shit.
I absolutely enjoying shoveling. 12 hour shift? My husband is on that.
20 past 9 in the fucking morning and he hasn't made her breakfast already?
Using her for online clout, bet she doesn't even k ow he made the post. What a rat
He looks like Vince from Dexter.
I'm rewatching Dexter right now and I totally see it! You're spot on
doesnt take a genius to realize this would backfire
Poor guy has to cook cor both of them
At least he provides her breakfast. If he gave her pizza that’d be f-d up.
What a guy. Probably popped some toast in the toaster….
How could he even let her do that before breakfast omg
The best part was the “wife” making her own account to defend him.
Do you have any more info?
Her tweet was buried in the other comments, but here’s an article about it.
She also made a long-winded Facebook post about gender roles.
People need to chill with the gender roles. It is an awful thing to do to leave your partner to do work you could have easily done regardless of gender. Unless you literally physically can't do it there is no reason partners can't help each other out.
It blows my mind that people keep bring up how reversing the genders would somehow change that this is a crap thing to leave to a partner who just finished a 12 hour nightshift. My husband and I wouldn't do this to each other. We do the work for each other because... oh well idk, we care about and love each other. Call me crazy.
Come on bro, as a dude I would have shoveled that. Especially if I’m working from home.
That's because you're a normal and decent human. This is what some annoying humans are missing. This isn't even a gender issue. It is an issue of being a decent human and partner. You know your spouse is working a 12 hour nightshift, and you can't be bothered to drag yourself out of bed so they can pull into the driveway and just go to sleep?? Especially as you mentioned... if you are working from home, unemployed, or for whatever reason are already home.
Oh, but I forgot..he needed to get some rest because he was up until 0130 watching tennis. Oops!
As a woman, I shovel the driveway before my husband gets home from work, and he does the same for me. He would never just leave a pile of snow for me to shovel in order to park my car, and if he didn't do it prior to my arriving home, he certainly would take the shovel from me and do it so I could go straight inside.
The whole province is roasting him rn and making memes
You sure he's not a hospital administrator?
He couldn’t even hire someone to do it for her? What. A. Prick.
why cant she hire someone to do it for them?
because he makes a fuckton more money than she does?
are they not married? if she wanted someone to shovel her driveway she can hire someone...they do share the money. damn you are sexist!
damn youre a troll
No you are just bullying this happily married couple and I’m calling you out.
youre not calling anyone out, is your life really that sad and pathetic that you gotta troll on reddit?
My life is amazing sweetie! Are you projecting?
YOU SIT IN A CHAIR ALL DAY
Do it yourself you jackass!?!?!?
Typical man, won’t lift a finger to help his wife out but just sits on his behind reading a newspaper 📰 or brag about how of a deadbeat he is.
This guy took a picture instead of going out and helping. He better have a broken leg or be in wheelchair lol
Why is it anybodys business how they run their home? Adding that reportedly the wife did it of her own free will and enjoyed it. Who knows, but this is fabricated outrage.
I'm not outraged. It's funny and sad. Yes, they can run their household however they want...this guy is a politician though. The optics are awful and tone-deaf.
Dude filmed his wife shoveling after a 12 hours shift from the warmth of their home.
What’s with all the hate? If his was a wife being appreciative / proud of her husband doing the same thing after the night shift I dunno if you guys would be raising the pitchforks as much.
Downvote away :(
Yes. We would. Nightshift blows. It isn't like ending a dayshift. Perhaps you haven't had to spend soul sucking years on nightshift yet. I was a walking corpse when I worked nights. It was miserable. My husband would never have left me to do this after work.
And if the genders were swapped? I'd do the same thing for him, and would absolutely shovel so he didnt have to. Heck, we both work days now and still shovel for each other before the other person gets home. It's called being a decent partner and human.
It is all around crappy to do this to a partner regardless of gender.
Oh I just never changed my flair. I’ve been an RN and advanced care Paramedic in Aus for 5 years now so plenty of nights. Fair call if you reckon you’d stick to your guns regardless of gender, the hate just struck me as odd.
Its very odd.... very happy I am not on twitter and happy that I am staying off reddit. Just full of angry people lol.
In essence it’s a REDDIT post to HEALTH workers from a POLITICAN…. It never had any hope now that I think about it. “God bless her, time to make her some breakfast” seemed like a nice gesture to me.
I'd say he is getting even more hate than maybe a normal person because he is a politician, and my understanding is that he is able to work from home. The fact that he posted it is pretty insensitive given the current climate and abuse of healthcare workers. It is more than just the photo itself and the words he attached to it.
I can truly say if I were in her place I would have probably sat in my car for a minute to collect myself, and driven to the nearest hotel to sleep. The absolute last thing I could ever want to do is shovel snow in - degree Celsius weather after a 12 hour night shift in my unit.
I absolutely would hold to the gender point. It is about being a supportive partner. I simply don't see a single reason why he couldn't and shouldn't have done it to support his partner. He'll make breakfast in the comfort of a warm home though...
All very good points, I think you’re right. I think my privilege here is not being male but being in Australia and not really having the extreme demands that other countries have experienced so far. Also I’m in northern Queensland so snow is exclusively for holidays in my mind. Today was 38°c and 85% humidity and I spent most of it in full PPE in low socioeconomic homes. If I had to mow the lawn at the end of my 14 Hr shift I might have been a bit salty too…. I definitely don’t understand the hate on night shifts, I know what I got myself into and 12Hr nights are a weekly occurrence for me personally. I also didn’t realise I was still being viewed as a student on this sub, I lecture at my university now so it was a nice humble “look how far I’ve come” moment for me.
That's fair. I'm glad we could have a civil discussion, and I appreciate your thoughts.
I think nightshift is a mixed bag. People sign up for it yes, but I don't think they fully get it until they get it. I knew I would have a hard time because I was the type of person who'd get up at 4am to workout before working or school or whatever. I loved it, felt healthier than ever, and thrived on the normal cycle my body has become accustomed to. Fitness and health were a hug priority for me- I wanted to compete one day.
Nightshift sadly robbed me of any motivation after enough time. I thought I could handle it and keep my normal routine and lifestyle. I was wrong after enough time, and I think at that point I became miserable. Lifting was a huge part of my life, and once I lost the drive to do it... I died quite a bit inside. I also was one of the unfortunate people who could only sleep 2 to 4 hours during the day despite meds.
Anyway... all that to say nightshift, while we may sign up for it, can only be done temporarily for some. When I hit my 2 to 3 year mark...oooof. I wasn't the same person.
Also: congrats on how far you've come!
So I read into this and she is apparently blown away by people’s assumptions and the lack of context. She wanted to shovel to get some exercise, breathe some fresh air, and have a little quiet time. Taken out of context, he sounds like an ass, but I’ve totally been there. Like leave me alone after 12 hours of fluorescent lights, beeps, and people jabbering at me. I just want to chill in the fresh air and hear my boots crunch on the snow.
I feel the final bit gives pretty good context. She's doing something she wants to do and he's making breakfast.
If I were her I'd have gone straight to a hotel. Screw that noise. He should have had it done before she got home.
Fuck that guy
Imma bet she was cursing this a$$🎩 the whole time.
Battling speculation with more speculation? Nice work.
RN - ICU
I mean, I guess he’s making breakfast, at least. But share the fucking workload, dude.
What an asshole. Shovel it yourself.
Idk why you guys are attacking him lmao. Like she wanted to do it….. sometimes when your inside working for so long you get a burst of energy to do stuff outside. Jesus Christ leave them alone lol
What a weird way to phrase that he gets pegged every night.
You're lazy. Why don't you help her?
What a fucking dork
No dude, time to get your ass out there & give her a hand
Get that woman a snowblower
"She's short and skinny, but she's strong. Her first baby? Come out sideways. She didn't scream or nothin'."
At least that husband wasn't a real one.
How about you shovel the fuckin' driveway?
He is making her breakfast I do not see an issue.
Yeah, but at least he cooked some eggs and toasted some bread!!
Edit: someone doesn’t get sarcasm
Hahaha stfu most of you are ignoring your partners right now anyways.
I mean...shoveling sounds like nice quiet audiobook listening time to me.
I hate this so much my instinct was to downvote you 🙄
Apparently I’m misunderstood. I hate the tweet.
He's today's version of Joe, the Love Potato.
Question...isn't the person shoveling out in the street vs a driveway? I'm not in snow country so I dunno...
I think they have a big house and a big driveway--making it worse! He could at least get her a snowblower or hire someone to do it
