AIBU to be annoyed

(20 Posts)

My boss at work today announced that he wanted to have TGI Fridays for lunch. I have had breakfast and have brought a healthy lunch. He asked me if I wanted to go with him and I politely refused and he then said that he really wished that I would go with him and that he feels guilty for leaving me alone in the office (everyone else in the company is going). AIBU to be a bit annoyed?

By the way, I always make an effort to attend everything company related but today was just not in the mood to stuff my face with fast food!

Why are you annoyed? He was being kind saying it's a shame you aren't coming!

Not really sure why you're annoyed tbh?

Yabu. A party pooper.

Unless he offered to pay then just enjoy the peace at work.
If he is paying then go and order 3 courses.

He was just being nice. Why are you annoyed?

I'm confused too

Reading it again fucking hell I wish I had a boss like that!!

Have they already left? I'll go!!

Haha, thanks for the replies. You are all right. It's my time of the month and the smallest things have been getting on my nerves today angry. I need to get a grip! I think I took it the wrong way and was asked about 4 times before my answer was accepted.

Yes YABU, there are still healthyish options at TGIs, you don't have to have chips with your meal! Just write off your packed lunch, lighten up and enjoy a meal out! Also, is it just me who wouldn't class TGIs as fast food?

You should go Champagneformyrealfriends grin. He is a great boss and always takes the office out for treats. Its the first time I said no, which is why I feet guilty which then quickly turned to anger. Can't wait for the weekend!!

I feel that TGIs is fast food heaven, SugarMiceInTheRain. I went last month and could not see one healthy option on the menu. Even the salads arn't healthy!

It depends if he was just being nice or trying to pressurise/guilt trip you into coming despite your refusal.

"That's a shame, are you sure? Okay, make sure you take a proper lunch break while we're out" is being kind.

"Oh no, I feel guilty leaving you, come on, it's only one meal, I wish you'd join us" is pressure and a bit disrespectful to the OP who is capable of making up her own mind and sticking to it.

I think I need to come and work with you sporty! Are you dieting? Sometimes when I'm being strict with myself and DH suggests a takeaway I get really pissed off that he's trying to derail my diet! So I understand really.

Sportygirl123 Fri 02-Sep-16 13:27:42

I am watching what I eat at the moment which is also why I probably got annoyed! And with it being Friday I already know I will be having a takeaway tonight with DP which again is why I did not want to stuff my face at lunch.
