We got a box of chocolates as a thank you present. Last night, he was munching through them,
i said. "please leave me some".
He said "yeah, I will. But where did they come from?"
i said: "from Janet and John because we helped them out."
He said. "Anyway I helped them more than you...."
I said:"But it was a joint present for both of us ..."
He said:"Don´t get so annoyed. you are so unfriendly.."
and disappeared.

AIBU to demand my equal share?

Of course YANBU! Even if you hadn't helped Janet and John a box of chocolates that comes into the house should be shared!

Poor you. His behaviour is unpleasant and childish.

Yes, that was childish and unpleasant. Is he often like that or were the choccies his absolute favouritist things in the world?

YANBU, maybe!

I can understand being a bit of a food hog, I think most people but won't admit it exhibit this behaviour.

However his reaction to a reasonable request to save you some was childish and makes him sound like a twat.

I hope he gets a cavity.

Go and buy yourself a lovely box of chocolates and make all the noises as you eat them in front of him wait until he's polished off the other box for maximum effect

If it's not too late, why not find the box and count how many there were when it was full (you can tell by the sockets in the interior packing)? Divided by two and remove your half.

That's greedy and selfish. Even if the chocolates were just for him I'd expect him to share but for both of you he should have checked with you its OK to open them and shared them.
I find greed and selfishness really unattractive so a bloke who didn't share chocolates wouldn't be my partner.
When he disappeared I would make him leave the chocolates!

Thanks. I was wondering if I was losing the plot here, over some chocolates. It doesn't have to be 50-50, I`ll happily give him some of mine, but he can´t just take them all, or any of my share shock

I guess it is more than that, he´s doing some odd things at the moment. And when I show my disagreement, he doesn´t like it.

I´m going to do what you suggest - hide some and get my own - grin
