well he was clearly hungry, why should he wait for you?
you could both stop the snacking and just eat earlier!!

That was rude of you. If you feel that is a large amount, he may not feel the same.

Yes your snack was very big OP.

YWBU to call him a piggy. But YANBU to think that is a lot. My DH is similar, I can't buy big value packs of anything because the more there is, the more he'll eat. If there were only 2 slices left out of a packet, he'd have eaten those and been happy. And it's annoying when someone eats an entire packet in one go, if you're on a budget like we are, it means I'm restricted to cheese in my sandwiches for the rest of the week! (Or worse, there's nothing left for sandwich fillings).

Your DH didn't call you a pig for eating a snack, I think you were rude. He's obviously got home super starving.

Is he generally greedy? Now he's eaten that, will he not eat a big dinner?

That's the context really. His snack sounds like an entire meal.

He probably wanted dinner.
You stitched him up by changing the usual mealtime.
I would assume, though, he won't be eating a full meal later.

I'm going to assume that this is light hearted.

Yes. He's being a piggy. grin

Just make a light dinner or something you don't mind having for left overs.

If someone told me that dinner was to be delayed due to their actions I wouldn't be happy if they commented on the size of my snack.

So you had a snack when you normally dont and decided you both had to eat later because of that then called him names when he got himself a snack?

Maybe you should have just waited until your normal time to eat?

You sound a bit fridge police. He had a snack because you had a snack first and wanted a later dinner then got called piggy. He's probably started a thread about you on dadsnet.

My DH would do that, he has a huge appetite - after a large meal he will make himself a couple of sandwiches before bed grin.

Four slices of beef, ham ,cheese is ridiculous !
I have teenagers and no way would they eat 4 slices of sandwich filling!

He probably was hungry then. And, yes, you projected pissed off rather than light-heartedness.

maybe instead of a red angry emoticon, use a smiley or winky one instead.

100g isn't that much is it? Too big for a snack before dinner, but certainly not too big for a normal sandwich meal. I loath under filled sandwiches though.

MoonlightandRoses Fri 11-Jul-14 20:09:00

Was it one of those 'more filling than bread' type sandwiches so it was all squashed in? In which case definitely slightly porcine wink.

Come to think of it, we haven't had dinner yet...hmm

ChickenFajitasAndNachos Fri 11-Jul-14 20:12:44

If I was hungry I'd probably eat one slice as I was making the sandwich and 2 inside but I am a 5 feet 1 inch woman. Then I may think it's not worth saving the last slice and scoff that.

A whole pack of meat in a panini isnt a snack, thats lunch!

I would certainly deem it as greedy.
