A stepfather left Twitter users in suspense – and laughter – as he live-tweeted his teenage stepson’s attempt to sneak a girl out of their house.
The dad told his 43,000 Twitter followers that his 18-year-old stepson had a girl "upstairs in his room" and he wondered how he would "smuggle her out" with the whole family awake.
His wife, however, had no idea at the time and went into "full Saturday house cleaning mode", failing to notice the girl’s "cute white shoes" by the door.
He shared a snap of the shoes on a mat – next to winter boots and a snow brush – left neatly near the front door, and waited -along with thousands of Twitter users – to see how things would unfold and if his wife would find out.
The stepdad, a US military veteran, began tweeting when he realised a girl spent the night in his stepson’s room.
He wrote on Saturday morning: "I’m curious on how he plans to smuggle her out now that the whole family is awake… and now we wait."
So, too, was the internet, with his post gaining more than 80,000 retweets and almost 400,000 likes.
He added 30 minutes later: "She’s still here, the wife has gone into full Saturday house cleaning mode. Still hasn’t noticed the cute white shoes by the door. This could be his chance while she’s distracted."
After sharing a snap of the white shoes by the door, the dad, from the US state of Michigan, then posted a photo showing his wife scrubbing the bathtub while listening to music "cranked all the way up".
He said of his stepson: "Now’s the chance.. will he see the opportunity??"
She carried on cleaning, moving on to the kitchen, and was oblivious as her husband asked his followers to vote in a poll asking who they were rooting for – "Mama Bear" or "Young Love", which came out on top with 63 per cent of more than 300,000 votes.
He then wondered if his stepson had a strategy, writing: "I think they might be waiting it out. The wife usually lays down and reads after lunch, especially after cleaning her ass off all morning. Could he be waiting for that?? Can she hold her pee another hour or so?? I have no idea what they thinking up there."
But then, a short time later, he posted this bombshell update: "OMG OMG OHHHH MY GAWDDDDDDD. SHE CAME DOWN TO USE THE BATHROOM!
"IT’S ONE OF HIS CLOSEST FRIENDS! See… Mom might believe it’s just a friendly sleepover, she was lucky enough to sleep through the f*** fest above our heads at 4am."
His wife didn’t seem to notice the girl, and there was another twist when the stepson finally emerged and took care of the white shoes.
The stepdad wrote: Omg this kid!! NONCHALANT AF he casually strolls downstairs… AND grabbed those shoes and went back upstairs. Side eyeing me the whole way past. I shot him a little wink . They gonna hit that side door. bet."
As predicted, his wife then took her usual Saturday post-cleaning rest – and the young lovers slipped out a side door.
He wrote: "Well that’s a wrap folks! Mama just went to the bedroom to lay down and read for a bit. He’s got a good 2-3 hour window… Looks like young love finds a way, for now!
"And closure… Sure enough, hit the side door and they gone. I don’t know about you but need a drink after that suspense. Thanks for following along! That was amazing."
