to wonder why I bother???

Fully prepared that I'm going to get flamed, but it's worth it to have a rant!

DD is 15 months. I've always cooked for her because jars / pouches are so expensive and luckily she's a good eater, so I can just give her what I'm having.

We get ice-creams at the park, she can eat her weight in biscuits at nanny's house, doesn't bother me. If she's eating healthy at home and nursery, then it balances out.

I was working in the garden so DH (who is perfectly capable) gave her lunch and put her to bed. When I asked what she had he said chicken soup. I don't eat meat so I know there's none in the freezer.

Then the penny drops. You mean tinned chicken soup?? He didn't see the problem. I called him a cunt. He said that wasn't very nice.

I'm fully away it's not going to kill her, but AIBU to wonder WHY DO I BLOODY BOTHER??

A year of cooking, freezing, labelling... I should have saved myself the bother and stocked up on tinned soup and super noodles hmm

You called him a cunt because he gave his child a bit of tinned soup!?

If you are that precious about it, do all the feeding yourself.

LumpyMcBentface Sat 17-Sep-16 12:19:33

I actually can't get over you calling your Dh a cunt for this. Are you often abusive?

JulietteL Sat 17-Sep-16 12:20:25


Either this is a wind-up, or you're completely nuts.

You called him that? shock Very nasty and YABVU.

You called him a cunt for giving your dd chicken soup from a tin? shock

AgentProvocateur Sat 17-Sep-16 12:20:50

hmm Yes, what a cunt, feeding his daughter.

Msqueen33 Sat 17-Sep-16 12:21:11

Wow! Just wow! It's one tin of soup! One! You realise calling him a cunt for this is completely insane?!

Do you suffer from anxiety?

Eatthecake Sat 17-Sep-16 12:21:46

You called your DH a cunt for giving a tin of soup? Way OTT!

I should have saved myself the bother and stocked up on tinned soup and super noodles hmm what? Please tell me you aren't really being that dramatic over a tin of soup!

It's a tin of fucking soup. A tin of soup. 1 tin of soup.

Chilli the fuck out love! 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

BuggerLumpsAnnoyed Sat 17-Sep-16 12:22:14

And why do you have it in the house is no ones allowed to eat it?

Wow what a charmer you are, and you kiss your dd with that mouth!

Bailey101 Sat 17-Sep-16 12:23:33

I ate plenty tins of soup growing up and not only did I make to adulthood just fine, if someone had called my mother a cunt for that they'd have been bounced out the front door quicker then you blink.

JacobFryesTopHatLackey Sat 17-Sep-16 12:23:42

It's chicken soup, not a hash brownie. hmm

ayeokthen Sat 17-Sep-16 12:23:44

I'm not convinced this is real, but if it is to call your DH a cunt is absolutely disgusting.

ElsaAintAsColdAsMe Sat 17-Sep-16 12:23:45

I must be a major cunt, my dc had tinned tomato soup with bacon sandwiches for tea last night.

Why do you have tinned soup in the house if you think it's the work of the devil so bad op?

raspberrysuicide Sat 17-Sep-16 12:23:54

But you don't care that she has ice cream and eats her own body weight in biscuits!

WatchingFromTheWings Sat 17-Sep-16 12:24:46


Seriously??? YABVVVU. And nasty with it.

DelphiniumBlue Sat 17-Sep-16 12:26:48

Actually I understand what you mean, and it really pisses me off when guys do this. Nip it in the bud now or you will be moaning like me 25 years later!
I still cook most of our food, if I'm not able to for whatever reason Ds2 takes over. He is able to produce a healthy meal out of whatever ingredients are there/ need to be used up. So why can't DH do it? If he's doing dinner, its sausages or b acon sarnies, or worse still, takeaway!
Make a fuss now, it's totally not fair that he gets the easy option!

Wow. There are women on here advised to LTB because he called them a cunt, and often rightly so.
