After I did a tesco order today and asked everyone what they'd like on the order, and planned the menu for the week and ordered it....

DS asked me tonight, shall I make shepherd's pie tomorrow night?

I said, with what?

He said, oh, could you add it to the order?

Gah!! I have actually planned meals for this week.

Aibu to think this is insane and not v helpful?.

Husband or son? It makes a bit of a difference.

WorraLiberty Mon 17-Feb-14 21:38:59

Makes no difference to me

Just tell them no, you've already done the shopping.

Not really insane......

Auntimatter Mon 17-Feb-14 21:41:07

If it was a keen 8yr old it would make a difference as to whether the OP was being unreasonable to roar at him. Which is the question asked.

WorraLiberty Mon 17-Feb-14 21:42:32

Oh right I see

Well to be honest the OP is BU to roar at all about such a mundane thing

Can't see why it's insane either

DS2 is 27 and is very good at meal planning. He is the Master of the Shopping List. These things are too important to leave to an absent-minded mother.

YABU to roar. An icy stare and a quiet "No. The order has already gone" would probably have had more effect. As it is he's probably thinking "I expect it's the hormones".

Someone offered to cook dinner. Add the ingredients and a bottle of wine and tell them to pour you a glass while you wait. I think you are being a but u tbh - unless of course you are on the tightest of weekly budgets and this is the difference between buying calopol for your tiny with earache and eating.

If the order hadn't gone then surely a quick rejig is possible

If the order had gone then a polite 'I've not ordered for shepherds pie, it's xxxx tomorrow - you can make that instead if you'd like' would work surely.

Doubt he'll be offering again any time soon.

Roar? Like the lion on the MGM logo? grin

You might look a bit of a tit

BOFtastic Mon 17-Feb-14 22:00:07

I thought you meant roar laughing and was looking forward to a funny story sad.

YABU. It's never acceptable to roar shouting at your family, certainly not over a supermarket shop.

Bowlersarm Mon 17-Feb-14 22:01:35

Just plan it for next weeks order. Easy.

Ohbyethen Mon 17-Feb-14 22:01:57

Not really the point but I can amend my online orders until 11pm the night before delivery.
Tbh I'd probably just swap it out and enjoy a nice pie with the possibility of a warm lunch too.

Yabu to roar, yanbu to be pissed off if it's another in a long line of helpful things that are anything but.

PuppyMonkey Mon 17-Feb-14 22:03:34

I feel like roaring at DP now just for the heck of it. grin

feathermucker Mon 17-Feb-14 22:06:48

Hardly the crime of the century wink wink

perplexedpirate Mon 17-Feb-14 22:08:08

Fucks sake.
Wish I had your problems. hmm

BOFtastic Mon 17-Feb-14 22:09:08

Puppymonkey grin

bringbacksideburns Mon 17-Feb-14 22:10:25

You roared at that?

Poor bloke.

Doodledumdums Mon 17-Feb-14 22:12:21


Come back to me when your DH can't even reheat the dinner you've made because he's so undomesticated that he can't seem to work the microwave!

Your husband offering to make shepherds pie to me sounds amazing, ingredients or no ingredients!!

Coumarin Mon 17-Feb-14 22:12:45

Man suggests meal. Woman says we don't have the ingredients for that. Man says ok. hmm

Although presumably roaring is either yelling or laughing so yabu.

steppemum Mon 17-Feb-14 22:17:33

actually if my ds offered to make shepherd's pie tomorrow, I would send him to the shops to get the ingredients and sit back and enjoy!

CocktailQueen Mon 17-Feb-14 22:33:37

Sorry!! Typo in title - dh not DS. DS is 6 so him making shepherd's pie would be amazing.

And ok, I didn't roar. I did hmm instead. Sorry!

And it's the fact that he knew I'd done the order today, because I asked everyone at lunch for things to add to it, that makes me go hmm. What does he think I put on the order if not things for tea?

Anyway, thanks. Will add stuff for the pie and he can make it!!

gamerchick Mon 17-Feb-14 22:39:12

it's weird.. I asked the husband what he wanted tomorrow and he fancys shepherds pie. Must be a thing in the air.

Sirzy Mon 17-Feb-14 22:44:15

Maybe he has thought between lunch and now "actually I really fancy shepherds pie"

Get him to add the ingredients to the list and then enjoy the meal!

steppemum Mon 17-Feb-14 22:44:45

well, I don't think you were BU in that he should have been more on the ball.
On the other hand I say to dh, can you cook on day x and y, what do you want me to buy when I do the shopping. He adds it to list, if he doesn't put it I don't buy it, his problem on day x when he doesn't have what he wants!
