Never mess with another person’s food!
I believe in this and I think everyone else should, too.
But some people cross that line and, as you can imagine, it’s never a good thing.
Let’s see what happened in this story from a man who shared his story on the “Am I the *sshole?” page on Reddit.
AITA for getting upset at my bf for putting things I dont like in my breakfast?
“I (20M) go to a culinary arts university in America and stay with my bf L(21M).
He is American and an atheist while i’m born and raised a Turkish Muslim. Since we both go to cooking school, we change the cooking chore daily without a problem. Also last bit, i’m a rather progressive person and i cut ties with my uber-religious dad and J knows this.
So onto the story, it was J’s turn to cook and he told me he would make breakfast for the weekend. So Saturday morning (which was my birthday) he comes to my room with some food and blindfolds me saying there is a surprise. Then he says he made something on the table and we walk there. I take a bite and it was pork.
From a pig ofc. so i was of course incredibly aggravated. I took the blindfold immediately and asked why he did this. He was in hysterics and thought this was SOO funny. I told him it was disrespectful and he shouldn’t disrespect my religion.
He scoffed off saying i was overreacting and that i wasn’t that religious anyway so he thought it wouldn’t be an issue.
I’m currently thinking of moving to a new room/house but my brother who i vented to is saying that’s too much of an overreaction so AITA for maybe reacting too much?”
And here’s how folks on Reddit responded.
This reader said that the man needs to be in a relationship with someone who is going to be respectful and have boundaries. PERIOD.
Another Reddit user said that the man’s boyfriend sounds like a total psycho.
I mean, who does something like this?
This person said that the boyfriend is obviously pushing boundaries just to see how far he can take it…and that’s a really bad sign.
Another reader said the guy who wrote the post should straight up dump the chump.
And lastly, a person argued that the boyfriend’s actions clearly prove that he has no respect for the man’s religious background…and it might be time to break up.
Okay, you’re up!
In the comments, tell us what you think about this woman’s story.
We’d love to hear from you!
