So have just blown a gasket.
Worked this morning, now working at my laptop, presentations to prepare.
Can smell yummy smells downstairs. DH
Preparing lunch.
I nipped down and had a look.
Roast pork with all the trimmings.
I don't eat pork, however I would be fine with the veg and potatoes, maybe a few extra mushrooms or something.
Went back upstairs carried on with work.
Got quite bogged down with it, assumed lunch must be ready, went in to kitchen to find DH & the 2 teens who are home today clearing up. They had eaten the lot! Not even a potato left. I am so cross. I cook every day of the week for all of them, but today I was busy & not even offered lunchsad

It is our anniversary tomorrow, apparently he is playing golf.
I think I am being a mug

Rant over

Wow I would be furious too. Next time you cook, make sure it's just for you. What was his excuse?

Pisspantspoor Sat 11-Feb-17 15:29:30

Yep, git. What did he say?

OneWithTheForce Sat 11-Feb-17 15:29:42

shock that's really selfish. Surely you offer food to everyone in the house??

amysmummy12345 Sat 11-Feb-17 15:30:37

What an arsehole! Having similar issues here....

Thattimeofyearagain Sat 11-Feb-17 15:31:54

What the fuck did he say when challenged?

pinkiponk Sat 11-Feb-17 15:33:30

That's unbelievable, has he always been selfish?

PastysPrincess Sat 11-Feb-17 15:33:50

Bloody selfish shit!

NoFuckingRoomOnMyBroom Sat 11-Feb-17 15:34:09

& what exactly were his reasons for not providing food for you?
Twat hmm

Whatthefreakinwhatnow Sat 11-Feb-17 15:35:18

I would be so upset, it's like he didn't even think of you sad selfish prick!

What did he say in his defence when you called him out on it?!

JeNeBaguetteRien Sat 11-Feb-17 15:35:52

That is so uncaring and disrespectful! What a twunt. I'd make tomorrow your last anniversary with someone so horrid.

InstinctivelyITry Sat 11-Feb-17 15:37:13

Similar happened to me recently. I prepared a lovely curry... I was to have some when I got back from nightclass. Oh no. All eaten. (D)H blamed the kids. He asked if they thought I would want some. They'd said no. WTAF did he consult the kids? He's ex now. I'm sorry OP, that's shitty. Maybe go on strike rest of the weekend? .

Perhaps he thought you didn't want anything as you don't eat pork and didn't show up at the table. Did you explicitly say you wanted the potatoes and mushrooms? And why do you cook for them every other day? I understand you're cross, but there might be time flew away, and they interpreted your departure to the laptop as a sign you simply didn't want to eat anything especially if it was pork and you don't eat it.

Order yourself a take away tonight. . And eat the bloody lot yourself. . And I hope you haven't bought him anything for tomorrow. If you have then take it back and spend the cash on yourself.

gamerchick Sat 11-Feb-17 15:41:06

What did he say when you asked where yours was?

boredwithabrokenfinger Sat 11-Feb-17 15:43:38

I would stop cooking for him from now on. No explanation.

endofthelinefinally Sat 11-Feb-17 15:44:07

That is really nasty behaviour towards you OP. sad
Is he unkind and selfish in other ways?
Never in a million years would DH prepare food for himself without asking me if/what I would like to eat. It is just basic manners.

AnyFucker Sat 11-Feb-17 15:44:10

That is hard to believe

Rainydayspending Sat 11-Feb-17 15:47:27

That is spectacularly rude.

PippiLongstromp Sat 11-Feb-17 15:47:39

I would go ape shit if that happened to me! Please tell me you have made it clear how unacceptable and rude that was!? Meals next week should be just for you. Don't let them get away with this..

shovetheholly Sat 11-Feb-17 15:48:47

That is seriously horrible! It sounds almost like he's punishing you for working.

Go out to a posh restaurant for lunch tomorrow with a friend and tell your DH he will be paying.

BlancheBlue Sat 11-Feb-17 15:51:50

Sounds like he is a selfish idiot - leave

Badcat666 Sat 11-Feb-17 15:54:22

What a twunt. I second taking yourself out (alone or with a friend) to a lovely posh place and stuff your face and make your selfish git to pay.

NarkyMcDinkyChops Sat 11-Feb-17 15:56:15

What was his response when challenged?

I made a whole roast dinner a while back, had everything either ready or in the oven, timed for an hour or so, and said I was popping out and would be back when it was ready.
I come back an hour and ten mins later and dp and children were finishing their dinner, having served up 2o mins earlier! I was fuming. I'm suspecting the difference between that and the OP however is that it was a misunderstanding, there was some left for me, and it won't happen again after I said how pissed off I was.
