Decided to play video games instead of clean up the kitchen? Have fun disconnecting mid-game.
So my boyfriend and I have a simple rule. I’ll cook the meals if he cleans up afterwards. He’s really, really bad at actually doing his side of the chore, though. He’s procrastinated on the kitchen so long that I had run out of every single clean dish, pot, and pan even after washing a few myself. It’s been at least a week.
I asked him to please, for the love of God, just clean up. The kitchen was disgusting. He told me he was going to play more video games, and maybe clean up if he had time before work. That didn’t fly with me. My boyfriend is not very internet or computer savvy, I am the one who repairs his computer or fixes the net.
I decided to log into our router and add his computer to MAC filtered devices, meaning his internet would inexplicably shut off and on at my discretion during his game, which was League of Legends. If I heard him making intense calls on comms, I’d shut off the Internet and then back on seconds later. Hear him clicking more and probably in an intense 1v1? Shut it down for two minutes, then let him back on.
I wasn’t a suspect at all, considering I was innocently laying in the bedroom with our dog and he doesn’t even know what MAC Filtering is. He kept screaming in frustration and pacing around waiting for the Internet to come back on, I kept asking him if he wanted me to take a look at his computer but he declined. He decided not to play any more games afterward and finally cleaned the kitchen. Thank fuck.
