To put the fucking lettuce in the freezer?

Our frost free fridge is an arse. As is dh. Between the two of them I'm getting pissed off.

Stuff at the back of the fridge gets frozen, no idea why. The fridge itself isn't icy.

Anyway, I wanted a bacon butty. I only bought the bacon this morning. I've found it in the fridge, not only at the back but stood up on end so the flat surface is totally pressed against the wall. Bacon is a frozen lump.

Dd says that dh did it on purpose. After questioning he's admitted it, to teach me a lesson as he says sometimes when I put stuff in the fridge his food gets pushed to the back and freezes. I've pointed out I don't do it on purpose, if he didn't fill the fridge with stuff like cabbages and cauliflowers which would be fine in the cupboard he could put the bloody salad in the salad drawer and the fridge wouldn't be rammed.

I think he's been an immature dick and now I'm tempted to stoop to his level and put the lettuce in the freezer.

I've still not had any lunch and am hungry and cranky now.

Is your DH genuinely an arse? That is pretty arsey behaviour, especially if your DD knows about it, which means he must have told her. Was he just being moody or is this sort of thing par for the course?

Don't put the lettuce in the freezer. Childish games are stupid and you don't want your DD seeing any more of it.

I would turn the fridge down a bit... that might avoid this in the future! grin

ZombieArmsDragOnTheFloor Sun 28-Oct-12 13:16:05

ARe you both 12?

VivaLeBeaver Sun 28-Oct-12 13:16:56

I've turned the fridge right down, don't know why he hasn't done it before if he's been bothered about it before. I've never noticed a problem prior to this. I will calm down when I get my bacon butty.

He can be an arse like this but is ok inbetween stupid bouts of twatty behaviour.

The Po side of me wants to look over my glasses and tell you that him 'teaching you a lesson' is very odd, as if he is in charge of you, and has to 'train' you to abide by his wishes. And that putting his lettuce in the freezer would be stopping to his level, and equally as odd.

However...this would irritate me intensely, and the other side of me burst out laughing and snorted "Damn straight I'd put his lettuce in the freezer and wait for him to look for it, while sniggering at him."

Guess you can see that I can't quite keep my childish side in check, despite being 31! grin

See it wouldn't cross my mind to do something like this to "teach someone a lesson". I think he's acting like a 12yo. I wouldn't actually do it to the lettuce but its so bloody tempting!

LadyEvilBeagle Sun 28-Oct-12 13:19:15

Your dh is a childish arse.
The bacon will probably defrost quite quickly if you leave it out for a while.
Sounds like your fridge is fucked though.

CailinDana Sun 28-Oct-12 13:19:24

How did your DD know about it?

VivaLeBeaver Sun 28-Oct-12 13:19:38

I don't think there's enough room in the freezer anyway. <sighs>

VivaLeBeaver Sun 28-Oct-12 13:20:20

It's not normal for fridges to be like this is it? It's 11yo, maybe time for a new fridge.

mynewpassion Sun 28-Oct-12 13:24:32

cabbages and cauliflower in a cupboard at room temp? That's crazy.

fluffacloud Sun 28-Oct-12 13:26:57

Why stop at his lettuce? I'd chuck the bloody lot of his vegetables in there!

Although, I am very childish and a champion grudge holder grin

tethersend Sun 28-Oct-12 13:27:17

Cabbages and cauliflower are stored at room temp in shops, no?

I think you need to get a new fridge. It's slightly cheaper than a divorce.

VivaLeBeaver Sun 28-Oct-12 13:32:04

I've turned the number from 3 to 1. Is that colder or warmer?

naturalbaby Sun 28-Oct-12 13:34:06

Our fridge started doing that, then died one night! Fridge full of warm food when we got up in the morning, freezer slowly defrosting during the day as I struggled to believe what had happened and frantically trying to keep the food cold.

I'm a champion grudge holder too, I would do all manner of childish things to redeem my anguish.

WelshMaenad Sun 28-Oct-12 13:37:36

'His' food?

Maybe I'm weird, but food in my family fridge is food. It doesn't belong to anyone specifically. I don't think I've had specific ownership over food since I lived in halls at uni.

lurkedtoolong Sun 28-Oct-12 13:40:19

Oh my God you both need to grow the fuck up. And I'm guessing that by turning the dial from 3 to 1 you are turning the temperature down.

VivaLeBeaver Sun 28-Oct-12 13:42:53

I say "his" food because he's vegetarian and I'm not. So we eat very different types of food. He could eat the bacon if he wished to and I'm sure he wouldn't mind if I ate the cabbage, etc. not going to happen, only veg I eat is peas, sweetcorn or leeks.

ProbablyDoingTheWrongThing Sun 28-Oct-12 13:45:34

Ours did this, it was a frost free one. We turned it off for 48 hrs, gave it a good scrub and it was much better after. Your thingy pipe is prob blocked.

GhostShip Sun 28-Oct-12 13:45:54

I'd stick his bloody head in it for playing games like this.

VivaLeBeaver Sun 28-Oct-12 13:48:47

I wish I had room for a big tall Smeg fridge, they're beautiful.

Naghoul Sun 28-Oct-12 13:50:43

YABU to do the lettuce thing but YANBU to think he's been a nobber.

Is it defrosted yet?

Crikeyblimey Sun 28-Oct-12 13:51:15

Turning the fridge from 3 to 1 is "warming it up" which is what you want. Seems odd that turning something "down" is making it warmer but it is turning the "colding" down.

Also - he was a twat for freezing the bacon to "teach you a lesson". He could have just said "sometimes you put stuff towards the back and the fridge seems to think it is a freezer, please beware". However, don't stoop to freezing the lettuce. That's childish. I would possibly have fed it to the rabbit though!!!

Also - caulis and cabbage perfectly good kept n a dry, cool, dark place. Better than the fridge actually.

Cool temp., not a room temp for cabbage and cauliflower. Most kitchen cupboards are not cool temperature places.
