Dp has just arrived home after a stag night he rarely goes out. He comes upstairs with a greasy takeaway pizza, strips down to his pants and gets settled in to eat it in bed!! We have white egyiptian cotton sheets and we changed the bed yesterday. I have told him in no uncertain terms that he cannot eat it in bed, he must take it back downstairs and eat there.

He says I have ruined his night. AIBU? I feel like his mother telling him off, this has not happened beforehmm

Poor baby. Ruined his night out. He'll live.

Well, I think you sound a bit precious but I don't have Egyptian cotton sheets. I may well feel differently if I did.

I suspect I might purely on the grounds I refuse to put my Mulberry bags on the floor but will do so with high street bought bags.

He is being an arse if he whines: he can eat it in the sofa, in his pants, burp, scratch his balls and then shower and get into bed. With clean teeth. Like a reasonable person.

Pizza and clean sheets do not mix

Does he not know that after a night out the pizza is to be eaten cold the next day anyways???

Food in bed is like having children...must be with the agreement of all parties involved. YANBU

TrucksAndDinosaurs Sun 03-Nov-13 00:25:28

Yes, he should have ordered two, one for next morning, the muppet.

Chablis mmm...fridge pizza!

The only people allowed to eat pizza in bed are invalids and mothers of Velcro night-waking milk-guzzling small babies.

Eugh... Crumbs in bed...

YANBU I have a sliding scale of what is allowed on/in my bed depending on how recently I've changed the sheets.

day 1) nothing that has not been showered or scrubbed - even dp grin

after day 3) cups of tea

after a week) basically any old shit/the dog/gravy based dinners, and yes pizza, but it would have to be cold as hot grease would stain.

I was very fucked off recently when dp put nasty eye drops in his dogs poorly eye on my bed, and the poor beast did a little wee on my fucking clean duvet. Never have I moved so quickly. Got to it before it hit my brand new feather duvet underneath. The cock.

Is he hammered? Can't imagine anyone would do this otherwise.

YANBU to want food crumbs in bed

YABU to stealth boast about Egyptian cotton sheets, especially when they are so ethically terrible.

Food in bed is so wrong unless you are ill

thenightsky Sun 03-Nov-13 00:36:58

YABU unless you mention thread count grin

If I wanted to eat in bed and my DH told me I couldn't (like I was some sort of child) I'd tell him to sleep on the couch if he doesn't like it.

FortyDoorsToNowhere Sun 03-Nov-13 00:38:45

They could be fair trade cotton sheets.

TrucksAndDinosaurs Sun 03-Nov-13 00:40:29

It could be a fair trade ethical organic vegan pizza served in a biodegradable hemp box: it's still skanky.

Bogeyface Sun 03-Nov-13 00:40:43

They could be, but I bet they aren't.

I know someone who bent her no bed snacks rule for a night of squirty cream passion: the mattress whiffed like a Stilton factory for weeks after and they had to get a new one.

Think on, fetid crumb crunchers.

did you marry Joey Tribbiani? grin

eww @ pizza in bed

MuffCakes Sun 03-Nov-13 00:53:07

I'm with worra,

I can't understand why one person is allowed to tell their partner what they may and may not do in their house in their bed.

MomOfTwoGirls2 Sun 03-Nov-13 00:58:28

OP - I'm with you. Eat the pizza either at the dining table (preferably) or on couch (compromise). No food in the bed.

Worra - simple, if you are in the bed first, you get to call the shots... And likewise if you are the one who changes the bed clothes.

Bogeyface Sun 03-Nov-13 01:16:15

I sort of agree that telling someone what they can or cant do in a house/room/bed/sheets they part paid for is U. However, saying "I would rather you didnt eat that in bed, the crumbs are horrible" is ok.

It all depends on context, if he isnt a selfish arse and she isnt a diva then he will eat his pizza on the sofa/stairs/floor/toilet and she will say thank you for that. If either of them is selfish or a diva then all bets are off!
