He hasn't touched it since the 3rd! There are five days of chocolate not yet eaten fshock

He says he 'doesn't feel like chocolate at the moment.' It's a bloody tiny piece of Cadbury's fhmm just eat it ffs!!

(This is only slightly lighthearted btw)

Aibu?

I'm not a lover of chocolate, so carry on.

FortyDoorsToNowhere Sun 08-Dec-13 21:25:30

I have 6 doors to open still.

TodayIsAGoodDay Sun 08-Dec-13 21:27:02

I'd have eaten it on the 4th at the stroke of midnight
What's the point in having an advent calendar if he doesn't eat the chocolate on the right days?!

WhenSantaGotStuckUpACunnyFunt Sun 08-Dec-13 21:37:38

My point exactly Today, he does this every year!

EAT IT

ItStillLooksLikeRainDear Sun 08-Dec-13 21:57:42

Go for it! My DD(2) shook her calendar and some fell out & we have been finding bits all day.

After dinner tonight she came up to me & said 'there you are mummy' and handed me what I thought was one of her chocs... Thankfully I didn't quite eat it... She had retrieved it from her pants having had a little 'accident!' DH was almost crying laughing!

Maybe he's saving them all up for a mass gorge on the 24th? I have to ask though: why he's got one in the first place if he's not bothered about it?

Do adults have advent calendars?

Amy106 Sun 08-Dec-13 23:03:02

YANBU but just to save myself from any unpleasantness, I would just go and buy myself my own lovely big bar of chocolate and be done with it.

Mim78 Italy Sun 08-Dec-13 23:08:16

I expect I am being unreasonable (or will be told I am) to find it strange that an adult would have a chocolate advent calendar (or any advent calendar). Especially one who doesn't like chocolate....

You could just ask if you could have it. My DH would say yes (if he happened to have been given a chocolate advent calendar). Or you could buy some chocolate.

WhenSantaGotStuckUpACunnyFunt Sun 08-Dec-13 23:10:51

Why is it strange for an adult to have an advent calendar? fconfused I didn't realise there was an age limit on them...

MrJollyLivesNextDoor Sun 08-Dec-13 23:13:38

Get it eaten grin

In fact, eat every single chocolate and close the doors up <evil>

Bettercallsaul1 Sun 08-Dec-13 23:20:40

I was going to say that eating your child's advert calendar chocolate was perhaps not in the spirit of Christmas - however, now that I''ve realised it's actually your partner's, go ahead! Tell him it's the season for compulsory sharing!

Bettercallsaul1 Sun 08-Dec-13 23:28:54

All normal rules/conventions collapse where chocolate is concerned.

I'm sure your partner appreciates this.

Hoolit Sun 08-Dec-13 23:30:34

Just for fun cos he's not doing it properly! I'd open the top and slide out the plastic tray and eat em and put the tray back so doors not touched and wait gleefully til he "feels like chocolate" cos I've never done this oh no its very childish you could always buy another if you feel guilty as they are cheap now or buy yourself one fgrin

Bettercallsaul1 Mon 09-Dec-13 01:02:14

That is truly villainous, Hoolit! (and an excellent plan)

steff13 United States Mon 09-Dec-13 01:05:50

He clearly doesn't deserve it. I say eat it! fwink

Can you substitute the chocolate for jelly beans? Or one crisp per "door"?

I still had half of mine left in July this year.

Daddypigsgusset Mon 09-Dec-13 01:53:05

I had eaten all mine by the 3rd. Whoops

ZingSweetPea Mon 09-Dec-13 03:28:12

YABU.

anything not consumed on the day is free loot!

I used to eat the kids' if they forgot and when questioned I'd just say "you snooze you loose" grin

ZingSweetPea Mon 09-Dec-13 03:31:13

Funt

there's no age limit to having an advent calendar.
We bought one for FIL last year. he is 82.

The correct question is "why wouldn't you have one?" wink

LittleBabySqueakSqueak Mon 09-Dec-13 09:36:03

Eating other people's chocolate is Not On. If you give him the message that it's acceptable, don't be surprised if your Christmas chocolate orange mysteriously evaporates.

Mattissy Mon 09-Dec-13 10:03:11

Of course adults can have advent calendars, adults can have what they want (legal stuff anyway) ffs, otherwise what's the point of bring an adult.

I buy one for my parents, a bit of fun and thoughtfulness. They're in their 70's and have one on alternate days.

WhenSantaGotStuckUpACunnyFunt Mon 09-Dec-13 15:56:37

I'm not really going to eat it LittleBaby. I wouldn't be that mean. And anyway, he ate it today, 6 days in one go!

Oh, so it's all academic! Well, never mind - we all got to discuss the finer moral points of chocolate marauding!
