I can stretch a box of chocolates out for months. Just went to have one and the fucking box was empty. Unlikely that DH are the, AS HE GAVE THEM TO ME. I put them on a shelf in the sideboard that neither child could reach.


Never said explicitly these are my special chocs don't touch but they are away from all other foods.

I love chops. Especially Welsh ones. I'd be v pissed off. Ywnbu

Firstly ask Dh and then the kids.

Have a loud asking session?

MumOnTheRunCatchingUp Wed 30-Mar-16 23:15:50

Is the au pair 'part of the family'....... Or not?

More information needed. Is s/he a good au pair? Have you had any issues in the past. Is it worth the money to replace to them (£20?) to make a problem of this?

If it was me I'd let it go.

Won't chops be off by now?

FoundNeverland Wed 30-Mar-16 23:18:09

And as above. Check it wasn't a member of your family before saying anything.

Too pissed off to spell check obvs

So funny...I love chops, couldn't open the thread quick enough to see what sort had been pinched!!!

Honesttodog Wed 30-Mar-16 23:20:17

Thanks for the meat storage advice tho

Honesttodog Wed 30-Mar-16 23:22:16

Lack of respect for other people's stuff. Am dissatisfied with her as an au pair but agency said unlikely to sort replacement before May. So plodding on grimly.

Oooh! I'd be mad. Dont fuck with mummy's chocolate. Everyone knows that in our house. Feel for you OP. I agree with having a loud asking incident. Make sure s/he is in the room when you ask DH and Dc.

FoundNeverland Wed 30-Mar-16 23:24:06

Can you find other help? Cleaner and/or nursery if she is so bad?

TheWitTank Wed 30-Mar-16 23:24:35

I would get everyone together and say that you are really pissed off that someone has taken your chocolates and that you want whoever has done it to replace them with a new box and put them back where they were ASAP. You will be able to tell by the faces who did it I bet.

May seems a long time or wait if she is so awful...

Honesttodog Wed 30-Mar-16 23:25:32

My kids literally cOuld not get to them without a grown up.

Only clicked on this because I wondered how you kept chops fresh for so long. hmm
Was wondering if au pair had done a stealth de-frost in microwave followed by a stealth grilling.
<slinks off feeling slightly disappointed>

Ps am in awe of your choc willpower

Honesttodog Wed 30-Mar-16 23:27:02

Not awful. I did not use that word. Just immature and not bright at all.

Honesttodog Wed 30-Mar-16 23:27:54

Awesome use of "stealth-defrost". Feel free to preen 😀

steff13 Wed 30-Mar-16 23:28:15

How many were left? Weird that she would leave an empty box.

Honesttodog Wed 30-Mar-16 23:29:08

Fucking fuckjust irrationally cRoss that someone ate the chocs and did not appreciate them.

Honesttodog Wed 30-Mar-16 23:30:08

Fucking NONE. hence belief she ate and thought it would get blamed on someone else.

grapejuicerocks Wed 30-Mar-16 23:31:10

Aren't you allowed chops on any other days than Mother's Day?

Ltb - this is totally unreasonable.
