To be a sneaky, lunch-police little buggar?

DH lunch bag is on the kitchen counter. He is on the school run. It contains:

Left over cold pizza (hm)
3 rounds of sandwiches
3 packets of crisps
1 pack of dollymixture!

I have replaced 2 packs of crisps with some popcorn, added 2 oranges...and tied it up again so he doesn't notice. AIBU to think he should be setting a better example to the kids? And AIBU to be so sneaky? grin

You obviously like to live life on the edge. Yanbu.

I'd be seriously pissed off if my OH did that.

I'd be annoyed if dh changed my lunch around. Actually I'd be furious.

Does sound a lot of food though.

You'd be pissed off if your DH swapped your lunch? Or if a grown man took dolly mixture to eat?

ynbu id have found it funny.. but it would start a chain reaction of getting my own back..

but id also add a little sickly sweet note like "i love you" becasue i like small things like that.

heeeyy ybu to dis dolly mixtures though.. they are awesome.. i like the square ones and jelly bits. i also like to flatten them before eating them!

BuggarMeGently Mon 10-Mar-14 09:38:36

Aw, you know, I'm feeling pretty stupid now. IWDBU...going to swap it back.

Actually it depends if the oranges were the easy peeling ones or proper big oranges. If you put those big ones in there I'd be pissed off. Maybe you should think about putting a more filling fruit in there like a banana? Oranges are just liquid IMO.

He's a grown up so can eat whatever he wants. Do your children even notice?

When you say three 'rounds' of sandwiches, do you mean three lots of two slices ? That is a lot of food

I have seriously just talked myself around to BU on my own thread, haven't I? <cleares a space for "NM Biggest Dickhead" trophy>

Is he a grown up?

BuggarMeGently Mon 10-Mar-14 09:42:51

No three rounds of bread!

Oh I thought you meant six slices as well.

I get confused by "rounds".

You're on the wrong forum. wink

BuggarMeGently Mon 10-Mar-14 09:44:21

giveme yup. And point taken grin

I think as long as the dolly mixtures stay, that's fine. Can you pop some jalapeños on the pizza? Probably too late now.

BeverleyMoss Mon 10-Mar-14 09:45:12

Three slices of bread? That's one and a half rounds innit?

::misses point of thread::

BuggarMeGently Mon 10-Mar-14 09:45:33

FB MN I meant!

I asked Jeeves,

"A round of toast is a single slice of bread or toast or two slices making a single serving of sandwiches. The number of slices depends on the number of people you are catering for. It is commonly thought to be two slices for each person."

I'm still confused. A round is one slice if its toast? But its two slices if its bread? hmm

Sorry, but I need to clear this up as I've often wondered.
