Anyone with kids knows the drill: You spend forever cleaning, only to turn around 10 minutes later and find the place is a mess. That’s why Ohio mom Michele Keylor taped off her newly clean living room and hung a "CLOSED" sign across the doorway, marking it off limits to her family until Thanksgiving in a note that has since gone viral.
“Special permission will be considered for you to sit on my clean furniture and/or walk on my clean carpet only after the following conditions have been met,” wrote Keylor. “1) You have showered and are dirt and odor free from top to toe. 2) You are wearing freshly laundered clothing.”
Keylor continued, “If permission is granted … NO food or drinks are permitted at this time!”
The mother of Andy, 27, Casey, 24, Samantha, 22, and Nick, 17, signed off: “Mom, Payer of the Bills, Chauffeur, Queen of the castle, Person ruining your life, Bossy b – tch in charge.”
After Keylor’s 17-year-old son Nick Denbow shared her handwritten sign on Twitter, where it racked up 15,000 retweets and more than 34,000 likes.
Keylor will be hosting 30 people at her home on Turkey Day. “I took advantage of Andy being away for National Guard drill and steam cleaned the living room carpet and furniture,” she tells Us Weekly. “It was much needed as there were soda spills and footprints on the carpet and pizza smudges and chip fingerprints on the furniture.” (In the cleaning process she unearthed french fries, dog toys, coins and dirty socks!)
So far no one has asked for permission to enter!
