A woman who got fed up with her husband’s overeating has come up with the idea to booby trap and tape all of the food she could find in an attempt to stop her man from eating everything he sees.
As 41-year-old Tammy Johnson explained, she was drunk when she targeted everything from chocolates to eggs to cereals with electrical tape after her husband, Thomas, went to sleep.
In an attempt to keep him away from foods, the mother even went as far as setting up a mousetrap with a cake on top of it to catch Thomas in the act.
While her methods may seem extreme, everyone in the family allegedly knows that Thomas can’t resist food and that he always finishes off all the snacks he comes across.
On the morning following Tammy’s securing of the food, Thomas was stunned to open the cabinets only to find his favorite snacks taped tightly.
As the UK-based 41-year-old explained after the incident, she and her brother have been planning to prank Thomas for quite some time due to his obsession with food.
“If the kids leave something on the side, without even thinking about it, he will eat it without even knowing that he has done it,” Tammy said.
As for the husband, he found the whole thing rather amusing.
“It is funny. I understand why she did it, because every time I go in the kitchen I’m always picking food out of the cupboards. She says I never come out of there without food in my mouth,” Thomas said.
“She taped up literally everything, near enough. I thought she was off her head. I couldn’t believe she had done that. She spent an hour doing it, I reckon.”
Despite the woman’s efforts to keep Thomas away from food, however, the man has confirmed the tape can’t stop him from eating.
“She thinks I’m too lazy to undo it but I’m not,” he added.
