Manitoba, Canada – Did he dig his own grave with this photo?
Jon Reyes (49), Minister for Economic Development in the Canadian province of Manitoba, posted a photo on Twitter of his wife Cynthia using a shovel to clear snow from the driveway to the property.
And does her husband give her a hand? Are you kidding me? Are you serious when you say that!
The macho minister happily comments on the short message service: “Even after a 12-hour night shift in the hospital, my wife still has the energy to shovel free the driveway.”
“God bless you and all of our front-line fighters,” he praises the hard work of the toiling nurse. And adds: “Time to make your breakfast.”
On Twitter, he received almost 45,000 likes for his snapshot by Tuesday morning, and many users fell apart. “Why didn’t you do that? What’s wrong with you? ”One grumbled. One user is stunned. “She does this while you watch. She does that while you just boil eggs. ”
There is now even an online petition demanding that the nurse divorce her lazy husband.
After the wave of angry comments, Cynthia Reyes felt compelled to protect her husband. “All I wanted to do was shovel,” she wrote on her apparently newly created profile.
In Canada, the minister’s slip causes a lot of ridicule. One satirical site joked, “Western Canada will have heavy snowfall for the next few days. We’re sending Cynthia. ”
