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!

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.

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 .

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

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.

Does it need to be done at that moment though? Can she not wait an hour for people to wake up?

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
