AIBU to think that I didn't mean stock up your cupboards when I said you can get a few treats?

I was having a film night with a friend,and we went to Sainsburys to get some sweets and crisps. I said it's my treat,get yourself a few things to enjoy while we watch the film.

AIBU to think a few things does not mean 2 giant Aero bars,a bag of 4 creme eggs,a giant Galaxy caramel.2 Walkers multipacks,a 2 litre bottle of Irn Bru, a bag of Starburst,a box of Maltesers and a bag of Fruit Pastilles?

Like an idiot I paid for it at the checkout,thinking that she was going to give me the money for it,but no,she didn't. This was all for her,and her alone btw.

It's not the money that's an issue,but AIBU to think she went a little OTT? And that she shouldn't be using it as an excuse to stock up her cupboard?

how much of that did she eat watching the film?!

blimey

Bogeyface Sat 06-Apr-13 18:13:35

I know people that could easily trough that stupid amount in one sitting, so YABU to assume she is stocking her cupboards but YANBU to feel taken advantage of. I would ask her tonight to get out the stuff you paid for to eat, if she doesnt get it all out and make yourself sick on it!

usualsuspect Sat 06-Apr-13 18:14:06

Was it a long film?

WorraLiberty Sat 06-Apr-13 18:15:08

Fucking hell that's some hardcore snacking and YANBU to be annoyed, but YWBVU to have paid for it.

I really couldn't concentrate on the film with someone chomping and rustling their way through all that.

AnnoyingOrange Sat 06-Apr-13 18:15:09

Why didn't you leave her to pay at the checkout?

I would have said something then

DontSHOUTTTTTT Sat 06-Apr-13 18:15:24

Why on earth didnt you raise it with her at the time or ask her for the money afterwards. confused

You could also have asked her to leave the uneaten food at your house when she left.

Does she have form for the type of thing?

LadyMaryQuiteContrary Sat 06-Apr-13 18:15:48

She got a little carried away there, hey! grin

Fucking hell!

usualsuspect Sat 06-Apr-13 18:17:46

Did she eat it all?

PurpleStorm Sat 06-Apr-13 18:19:42

That's a lot for one film night. Did she eat it all?

I'd have said something at the checkout.

AnyoneforTurps Sat 06-Apr-13 18:20:09

YANBU to be annoyed but YABU to expect her to give you money after you had told her it was your treat. You should have told her to put some of it back before you paid.

I'm also shock about her health. I love some sweets in front of a movie but - from your description - she will literally be consuming an entire week's worth of calories in a single sitting.

ItsAllGoingToBeFine Sat 06-Apr-13 18:20:54

If she ate the whole lot during the film then YABU, if she didn't then YANBU grin

usualsuspect Sat 06-Apr-13 18:21:39

I think I would have said I would have taken a few things off her and said 'I will pay for these' and left her to pay for the rest.

usualsuspect Sat 06-Apr-13 18:22:20

that sentence made no sense grin

EuroShaggleton Sat 06-Apr-13 18:23:35

No wonder we have a type II diabetes problem in this country...

Maat Sat 06-Apr-13 18:24:03

I'm guessing you were sitting through a Trilogy grin

sjupes Sat 06-Apr-13 18:25:31

Christ, she's a grubbing cow isn't she??!

I'd be asking her for the money tbh, that is A LOT for '1 movie'

can't bear greedy sorts that take advantage

floatyflo Sat 06-Apr-13 18:27:33

I hate these kind of posts. Yeah maybe she did go overboard, and maybe that would be seen as a bit rude.

But dont you feel like if your friend saw this post she'd be feeling a bit hurt and embarrassed. I just feel its really judgy. You said it was treat, you didn't specify how much. Maybe that's a normal amount for a film feast to her.

It reminds me of an aibu a month or two ago, about the babysitter who ate lots of food out the ladies fridge. She was so bitchy about this poor girl.

ENormaSnob Sat 06-Apr-13 18:34:01

She's taking the piss.

I can trough like a good 'un but that's a disgusting amount.

DontSHOUTTTTTT Sat 06-Apr-13 18:34:56

There must be more than 10,000 calories in that lot
14 packs crisps = 2500
4,litres iron bru = 1600
4 creme eggs = 600

Etc....

LadyMaryQuiteContrary Sat 06-Apr-13 18:35:31

Did you have to wheel her home in a barrow?

SamuelWestsMistress Sat 06-Apr-13 20:18:50

Perhaps she's planning on hibernating and needs the energy?

BarredfromhavingStella Sat 06-Apr-13 21:00:50

I could do that minus one of the walkers multipacks blush I love snacking grin Lucky you're not my mate cos I'd have whacked a bottle of Hendricks through the checkout as well...wink

TeamJavert Sat 06-Apr-13 21:03:29

Sorry for dripfeeding. We went to our respective homes immediately afterwards,to get a few things done before the film. She brought some of the stuff round,but most was left at home,so in a sense I was stocking her cupboards.

It isn't about how much she eats either.She's tiny and slim,not that I'd care if she wasn't and ate a ton.And it's not really about the money either.I just think she was taking the piss a bit.And it reminded me that she does tend to do this. I hadn't seen her for a while,so I'd forgotten she's fond of freeloading.

On holiday once,I said I'd get lunch,and said we'll split dinner,and she said 'Why do we need to do that? Have you run out of money?'

NatashaBee Sat 06-Apr-13 21:08:00

That is a lot... But you did say 'a few' things and I guess that's her definition of a few. God knows how she's tiny if she eats that amount in the space of one movie though!

"I just think she was taking the piss a bit."
A bit? A huge, lake full of piss!

TeamJavert Sat 06-Apr-13 21:24:52

She didn't eat most of it during the film.She left most of it at home,presumably for another day.

LadyMaryQuiteContrary Sat 06-Apr-13 22:07:28

You should have said something 'where's the rest of the things I paid for?' or something. She's freeloading.

mrsjay Sat 06-Apr-13 22:13:44

I had a friend like this I dont see her very often ( i can't afford too) last time we were staying so i said we will nip to the shops and get some shopping she filled her trolley and and her freezer and like an eejit I paid half and didnt see most of the food she bought as 2 of the 3 nights we got takeaway shock I think you need a wee reminder to get some snacks in before you invite her over again,

ImTooHecsyForYourParty Sat 06-Apr-13 22:21:24

Well then it's simple. You say that you would like the cash for the items she didn't bring with her.

She is taking the piss with that, tbh.

Inertia Sat 06-Apr-13 22:24:30

If the film night was at yours wouldn't it have made sense for you to take all the snacks back to your house ?

olivertheoctopus Sat 06-Apr-13 22:28:55

Greedy cow. Whose house was the film night at? I'd have taken home most/all of the uneaten stuff if I'd paid for it!

olivertheoctopus Sat 06-Apr-13 22:30:17

Oh, just seen your update about her leaving most of it in her cupboards. Cheeky freeloader!!

TeamJavert Sat 06-Apr-13 22:39:13

The film night was at my house.She asked me for 'her stuff' and like an idiot I gave them to her,as we left the store.

I think she and I need to have a talk.

ImTooHecsyForYourParty Sat 06-Apr-13 22:40:00

You certainly do.

unebagpipe Sat 06-Apr-13 22:46:53

Phew- in a way I'm relieved. I imagined someone actually eating that much in one sitting, and being transported to the nearest a&e in some sort of sugar coma!

But in answer to you AIBU- She's taking the proverbial. Dig out the receipt. Take off whatever she ate at your house (as that was "your treat")- highlight the rest- and get her to pay up!
