I’ll take those!
People get pretty fired up about leftovers sometimes, don’t they?
And I should know because I’ve done it, as well!
Hey, sometimes when you’re looking forward to eating something and then it gets YANKED right out from under your nose, you get angry.
Read this story and see if you think this woman acted like an a**hole.
AITA for taking the leftovers to work because my husband invited his friend over for dinner without telling me?
“My husband’s friend is going through a rough time. I am not privy to the details but his friend is in a really bad spot.
I don’t mind his friend hanging out but I like to have a heads up so I know before I get home from work if someone is coming over. I plan our meals with 2 people in mind unless told otherwise. I cook enough so we have dinner and leftovers for lunch the next day so we don’t have to eat out.
Lately my husband’s friend has been over a lot, sometimes unannounced and staying for dinner as he is unemployed, his phone has been cut off, no car, it’s a whole mess. I told my husband I didn’t mind having him over and feeding him but I needed a heads up so I knew to make extra. I’ve also made it a habit of asking my husband if his friend is coming over that night before I leave for work.
Yesterday morning I asked my husband if friend was coming over as I had to go to the store to get some things for dinner. My husband said he didn’t know. When I left work I called my husband to ask again, he didn’t answer so I grabbed things for dinner/lunch for just us two. Got home and started dinner, my husband comes home with friend in tow, friend mentions being so hungry and food smells so good.
Dude is hard on his luck so I didn’t turn him down and served him food. With what was left, I only had leftovers for one lunch the following day. In the morning I took the leftovers instead of leaving them for my husband, and I told him as I left that I was taking the food.
Husband is pretty frustrated that I did that, i told him I asked him in the morning, called him after work and didn’t get a response so I didn’t include his friend as someone who was going to be eating. My husband works by plenty of restaurants, or could’ve thrown together a sandwich before he left.
Apparently I’m making him feel like his friend isn’t welcome. I feel I’ve done nothing more than make his friend feel welcome, feeding him, letting him sleep over, shower at our place, do laundry etc.
And here’s what Reddit users had to say about this.
This person said she’s NTA and that her husband is disrespecting her.
And this individual made a good point about the husband’s friend…
Another Reddit user said it sounds like both guys are taking advantage of her.
