AIBU to prepare his dinner?

DH finishes work at 6. I have prepared dinner ready for 7.30.

He messaged me at 6.14 saying he was just 'finishing up a few bits then would be heading home'. I messaged him 5 mins ago to see if he'd left, not yet but in the next 10 mins.

Told him dinner would be ready so he would need to reheat it, and now he has the hump.

AIBU having his dinner made for 90 minutes after he finishes work?

Is he BU expecting me to go hungry until he arrives home?!

Seriously? You eat yours and he reheats his. It's not hard. yes you are both being tediously unreasonable.
Go and find something else to worry about. Good grief.

He's has the hump because he's had dinner made for him?

or does he have the hump because you didn't magically know not to make dinner for 90 mins after he told you he'd have finished work?

Or does he have the hump because you will eat before him and not wait to reheat yours and his when he gets home?

Whatever it is YANBU, he is.

You both sound incredibly hard work

I cook for about 6pm. If DH isn't home he has to re=heat (or I keep it in the oven). He never complains.

If he has the hump then chuck it away and let the fucker make his own.

This really isn't an issue.

By the sounds of it he'd also have the hump if you waited until he got home to start cooking and he'd have to wait for it to be made.

I think you should try talking to each other a bit more.

How is the OP being hard work? She's cooked his dinner for him, and he hasn't had the decency to let her know he'll be late and, what's more, has got the hump about it therefore needing re-heating.

He's the one who's being a pain here.

What you having!?

I never cook for my husband, he cooks when he gets home and I cook for me when I get home which is earlier than him, then I put my feet up.
We eat different things anyway, he only eats meat and I'm very nearly vegan give or take the odd egg.
It works for us.
My life is too short for kitchen drudgery.

Lilaclily Mon 22-Aug-16 20:27:07

I'm the same as bikerlou
We've never liked the same things
He's a meat and 2 veg man and I'm pasta, veggie
I eat at 6pm he eats about 7.30

Do you have a dog? Feed his dinner time the dog; he deserves no less

DH is normally home between 6 and 6.30 ( any later he will text beforehand) so I have dinner ready for 6.30.

That's when I dish up. If he's home, great. If not it either stays in the pan or in the oven depending what it is.

Our new plan for September is set nights each to cook. Maybe try this. Enjoy your meal in peace tonight.

I can SOO relate to this OP!
My DP would tell me what time he finished work and what he fancied for tea, so I always made tea that would be ready for an hour after he finished, nearly every night he would be late and have to reheat his tea so he would Moan at me. I got fed up of his moaning so stopped cooking for him altogether he still moans because he can't cook so he has changed his entire diet to uncle bens microwave rice but it serves him right for not coming home on time

Doreen gringrin I liked that. Alot.

How is this even an issue? confused

user1471461166 Mon 22-Aug-16 21:05:27

Thanks for all the replies.

For the record, it was roasted chicken risotto, which he hoovered up when he got home. No attitude, no grief, sheer thankfulness for having cooked it.

I must have just caught him at the wrong point.

And thank you to those of you who said that we as a couple must be hard work and both unreasonable. First world problems, I know.
