Have you ever tried to hide your snack stash from your significant other? Dave Williams of Wales, Great Britain took a pretty extreme measure to keep his fiance from poaching his chocolate supply — installing a safe in the refrigerator .
Stacey Lowe took to Facebook to share what her husband-to-be had done, and people thought it was pretty funny. The post went viral, racking up 53,000 reactions, 116,000 comments and more than 60,000 shares.
[Warning: there is profanity ahead.]
“So this is what it has to come to!” she wrote alongside photos of the safe. “You buy a house together, have a child together, get engaged, are planning a wedding and doing your house up and this happens!”
“I laughed at first, but then told him it’s like torture because I can see what’s in there,” Lowe told The Sun . “It’s like showing me what I can’t have. He’s saying he’s going to get another one for the cupboard now for his crisps and sweets.”
When it comes to her love of chocolate, Lowe admits that the sweet treat is her weakness.
“We are both foodies but I can’t resist chocolate,” she said.
She says that she does tend to steal his candy, especially during the late hours of the night when she gets up to feed the couple’s one-year-old child. Apparently, he got tired of it and searched out a solution, causing the mom to share her frustration with family and friends who know her habits.
Lowe didn’t expect her post to gain as much as attention as it did, but she said both she and her fiance are having a good laugh about the whole situation.
Although she hasn’t cracked the safe’s code yet, Lowe’s confident she’ll get to the snacks sooner or later.
“I know if I haven’t got any chocolate he will give in and share if I’m desperate, just to keep me quiet,” she said.
Despite the torture, it sounds like this relationship is still on solid footing — which is a good thing!
