Hilarious! Twitter user Twinks asked her followers to share stories of the ‘completely irrational things’ they have done while they were ‘under the influence of hormones’ on Monday, July 1
Story: She accompanied the tweet with a story of her own, which involved her throwing her kitchen pans ‘over the fence’ after her husband turned ‘his top lip up’ at the dinner she made
In her now viral tweet, which was shared by Bored Panda, the Twitter user explained that she has ‘raging’ premenstrual tension – a group of symptoms that occur in women, typically between ovulation and a period.
Therefore, she asked fellow female users to share some of their funniest stories that involve their own PMT.
Her post read: ‘As I have absolutely raging PMT I would like you to tell me the completely irrational things you have done whilst being under the influence of hormones.’
The user began by sharing her own personal story, as she said: ‘One day when the twins were babies, I was cooking tea. Their Dad walked in from work.
‘We said hi to each other and he went to see the twins. I went back to cooking. Now, I can’t remember exactly what it was, but sausages springs to mind.
‘As I was seeing to the pans, out of the corner of my eye I see him re enter the kitchen. I then saw him look over the hob into the pand [sic] and ever so slightly turn his top lip up.
‘Without saying a word, I very calmly walked to the back door, opened it and threw EVERY F***ING PAN OVER THE FENCE,’ she added.
Viral: Over 500 people have revealed their funniest hormone-related stories, including many that involve women lashing out at their partners as a result of having premenstrual tension
After sharing the tweet, it quickly garnered over 500 comments, as different women shared their best stories.
Many of the stories involved women discussing arguments that have developed with their partner as a result of their hormone levels changing.
One hilarious response read: ‘Went to deli to get husband’s fave cheesecake. Impatient husband pi**ed and b****ing because I took so long, so I opened the car window and threw out his cheesecake.’
Another said: ‘Baby brain made me forget the word ‘fridge’ so I called it ‘the cold cupboard’.
‘Boyfriend (understandably) laughed at this. So I sobbed for an hour because he is an insensitive b****rd,’ she added.
One response saw British psychotherapist and author Philippa Perry revealing that her husband would regularly prevent her from reading certain articles in a newspaper, as he knew they would upset her.
‘When I was pregnant my husband cut certain articles out of the paper with scissors because they’d upset me,’ she said.
‘He had managed to hide a particular gruesome murder from me but my friend told me, I got hysterical and he got angry with friend.
‘All his careful scissor work, for nothing,’ she added.
Random! Others shared funny stories about random situations, including pet-related incidents, that left them feeling angry or upset
One woman said her PMT caused her to become upset and angry after she had a dream that her husband cheated on her.
She said she ‘went from being angry to crying at ten minute intervals for about six hours.’
Another responded to the tweet to reveal that she once threw an entire meal in the trash after her husband turned his nose up at eating chicken two days in a row.
‘Cooked a chicken roast dinner for husband (then boyfriend) when we lived in the flat. I brought it into the living room on tray with cutlery, gave it to him,’ she said.
‘He said “Oh, we had chicken yesterday” Picked tray up, without a word and binned the lot-plate, tray, cutlery, the works,’ she added.
One hilarious response saw a woman admitting that she cried while watching a video of a dog, as the ‘ugly’ dog had the same name as her.
‘While I was in the first trimester of this pregnancy, my partner showed me a funny YouTube video of an ugly dog… I started crying because the dog had my name.
Another dog-related response read: ‘It’s not extreme but the dog looked at me funny and I cried because i thought she hated me…’
Funny! Many of the responses included incidents that occurred in some people’s work environments, and others that happened in their own houses
Another woman said she ’emptied a cat litter tray (that hadn’t been emptied for a while so contained poo and everything) over my (now) husband.’
She added: ‘I cant remember what he had said but just remember he looked smug when he said it.’
Several other responses involved work-related incidents, including one that saw one lady leaving her office during the middle of the day with the intention of never returning, only to turn back around when she was half a mile away.
One woman said: ‘While boss left office to run an errand, I packed up my stuff and left without a word. Drove off crying w intention to never return.
‘Got half mile away, stopped, called office to inform that I’d “forgotten to let anyone know I’d left for lunch early and was on my way back,”‘ she added.
Another Twitter user said: ‘My Mum, whilst cooking dinner for friends and three small children, took a slightly burnt pavlova meringue out of the oven, carefully placed it on the kitchen floor, and proceeded to jump up and down on it until it was nothing but dust.’
In perhaps one of the most irrational things a woman on the thread admitted to doing, one woman said: ‘Handed my notice in because, in the 24 hours or so I was in full PMT self-destruct mode, I managed to convince myself my employers were trying to get rid of me and I thought I’d deprive them of the satisfaction(?!).
