so im in the middle of cooking tea (honey glazed gammon) and dp has just woke up, come in the kitchen and said he wants a takeaway. I told him ive got gammon on and he said I can have that, him and ds1 will have a takeaway - so I threw a strop! AIBU to be utterly pissed off with him?!

Does he like gammon? Because I would rather eat an old sponge, but if he likes it then it is really rude to dismiss the effort you are making by getting a takeaway, especially if he is serious about including your son!

No- he's BU!!!

Yea I would be pissed off too. Tell him to sit down shut up and eat what you've cooked

I think it's a bit rude of him - is he offering to pay out of his own money?

I would throw a mega strop. If you have already started cooking its too late for any other suggestion.

I would be cross. Why can't he buy takeaway for everyone tomorrow instead?

It depends if he likes/eats gammon. If you've made it knowing he doesn't then yabu. If he's just changed his mind then he is bu.

Yes it's annoying, but surely he's allowed to choose what he wants? Can't you have the gammon tomorrow?

joint bank account - all money is shared. and yes he does like it - more so with honey. id rather have summat else but tend to cook what he likes. ungrateful bastard angry

YANBU, tell him to grow up and you can have a takeaway tomorrow. Fair enough if you hadn't started cooking but you have gone to the effort of cooking a meal already, I would be annoyed

Why is he asleep this time of the day? Yanbu

My 2puddings are you op?

my2puddings Fri 14-Mar-14 18:04:02

also we tend to have takeaways Saturday nights - which we are trying to cut out to save money but will be out tomorrow and he knows we're eating out then

my2puddings Fri 14-Mar-14 18:04:45

hands off yes sorry, confusing name change

HannerHet Fri 14-Mar-14 18:05:08

It doesn't make any difference if he is paying for it or not - still rude. And has OP namechanged?

I'm cooking a roast dinner, as it's my day off work.

If dp, knowing this was what was for tea, then said 'oh I'll just get some chips/takeaway', I'd be very very pissed off, especially if you're trying to save.

Let him have his takeaway, and have the gammon tomorrow. Tell him he'd better enjoy it as you're never making it again though, the ungrateful twit.

my2puddings Fri 14-Mar-14 18:10:44

susiedaisy - he gets up early for work but can never sleep at night so has a 'nap' when he comes home from work hmm

invicta Fri 14-Mar-14 18:11:27

You are not bring unreasonable. He is being rude and appreciate the effort you are making.

YouTheCat Fri 14-Mar-14 18:12:13

Lego, they are going out tomorrow for a meal.

MyNameIsKenAdams Fri 14-Mar-14 18:12:58

Id use it for sarnies but then im not one to ever refuse a takeaway.

my2puddings Fri 14-Mar-14 18:13:25

gammon is now out but looks like it will be going in the fridge. no reasoning with him - he said im in a foul mood! well duh!

my2puddings Fri 14-Mar-14 18:19:01

mynameis - me and ds1 will end up having it on buttys over the wkend. im not normally one to turn down a takeaway either but seeing as though we'll be eating out tomorrow and we're trying to save money... (not to mention the fact that I had nearly finished cooking it)

still pissed off though and will sulk in the other room with ds2 - dp thinks hes done nothing wrong.
