To be pissed off that DP is making himself scrambled eggs on toast now, while I am making a roast chicken dinner for 1pm?

As well as being in my bloody way when I'm trying to prepare the veg!
He hasn't had any breakfast, so has decided to have scrambled eggs on toast now. 4 slices of toast and god knows how many eggs.
Aibu to think he should have had breakfast earlier?
Or just bloody wait?
Or at least have less food?
Don't know why I bother, grrr angry
He thinks it doesn't matter as long as he eats his lunch

I would be annoyed too.
If hungry at that point have a slice of toast and a cuppa then you will be ready for lunch

If I am hungry I will eat, if not I go behond hungry and it puts me off from eating.

He shouldn't have got in your way though.

Glad it worked out in the end OP.
I think YWNBU, it would drive me insane. But then I come from a family where respect is given to the person slaving away to provide a delicious meal.

Unlike in DHs family, when (despite 20 minute, 10 minute and 5 minute warnings) often FIL, BIL (and sometimes DH if he has been led astray) don't turn up for ages after it is ready as they were busy doing crucial man things. They seem to believe that us poor women/slaves must understand they can't be rushed just because someone has had the bad planning of not psychically realising 3 hours before that they would be looking at a car engine/fettling with some tools/still in the pub at 2pm. hmm

BooCanary that would really get my goat. I used to get irritated when I'd give my ex-BF a countdown to when I was dishing up dinner only to have him still be sat at the dining room table on his laptop until I was about to serve it. It irritated me further that I actually had to explain to him that the least he could do was make himself and the table ready. He said if I want him to do something I should just ask as he doesn't take hints. Perhaps I thought as he was a grown man he would realise without being told that I'd need a clear table to put the food on, and that cutlery would also be useful angry I didn't expect to have to treat him as though I was house-training a child hmm
