I sound like a loon, I know, but I was meant to be having macaroni cheese for dinner tonight and it didn't happen. I got unreasonably emotional and had to go upstairs to cry about it.
Please make me feel better with your stories of inexplicable grief at ridiculous things!

I trot this one out a lot, but I got very upset about the lack of vegetables in the house when I was quite pregnant and DH had to take me to Sainsbury's at 9pm and spend £40 on fresh veg blush

I've had bad agility lessons with my dog and cried about it. All victories are hers and all mistakes are mine; I mess up often and kick myself. So to sum up, Sometimes I weep because I didn't get my dog to jump over something correctly.she has a ball either way.

Need more info. Did it not happen due to a cooking disaster, missing ingredient or someone was meant to cook it for you and didn't? I suspect the crying was due to a build up of things rather than the macaroni cheese (unless you REALLY love it).

Someone was meant to cook it for me, didn't realise they hadn't until I went to help serve up and there it wasn't sad
Crying was probably due to build up of things but I really REALLY do love macaroni cheese!

Peace- I totally get that, I can't stand being in a fruit and vegless house, it's weird confused

Clementine- my animals have made me cry many a time, it can be so frustrating when you work so hard for something and end up kicking yourself!

I really love macaroni cheese, tbf.

Why didn't they cook it? I want to know.
Really fucks me off when people say they will do something and then don't!!!

I once cried because dh ordered a pizza with a horrible combination of toppings. It just seemed all wrong, I couldn't understand why anyone would be so unreasonable!

I also got terribly upset one night when pregnant because dh said that he didn't like winnie the pooh grin - teary drama ensued and I was convinced that he was going to bring the baby upon playstation games! Ds now loves winnie the pooh grin

I get really quite emotional over food, especially, as you say, getting all excited anticipating a particular meal then being served something else. So no, yanbu, in my opinion as least!

thebakerwithboobs Sun 12-Feb-17 23:15:25

It's a completely reasonable reaction, OP. Everyone loves Mac and cheese. I may shed a tear for you myself!

Moonbear10 Sun 12-Feb-17 23:19:50

I don't even know why it didn't happen, I went out and bought milk specially too! I'd been looking forward to it all day and I can honestly say the blow was crushing sad

Tbf I'd get pretty emotional if someone told me they didn't like Winning the Pooh too, speaking of which, new Primark WtP homeware range is adorable smile

I bought some Coke Zero to enjoy with my Monster Munch and Oreos - my weekend treat. I took a swig of the Coke Zero, it tasted like sewage, took a closer look and i had picked up Coke Zero with sodding cherry by mistake. My afternoon was ruined.

Moonbear10 Sun 12-Feb-17 23:24:55

Oh no! Absolute bloody disappointment when that happens Sonyaya! 😞

BearFoxBear Sun 12-Feb-17 23:25:16

Thanks Moonbear I'm clearly going to have to buy it all grinhalo

ClementineWardrobe Sun 12-Feb-17 23:31:32

Moonbear, thanks I do try really hard! I LOVE macaroni cheese and understand your tears- my DH doesn't eat cheese sauce so I feel greedy having it - which is great!

peaceloveandbiscuits Sun 12-Feb-17 23:32:33

Totally making macaroni cheese tomorrow

SDTGisAnEvilWolefGenius Sun 12-Feb-17 23:33:07

Once, when I had been poorly, dh asked me what I would like for tea, and I asked for smoked cod with rice and cheese sauce - for me, that is perfect comfort food.

He made it with ready made cheese sauce from a jar - it was like sweaty-sock-sauce, not proper home made cheese sauce, and I could have cried. It was all over the fish too, and the rice, so they were polluted too.

I could have cried, so I know exactly how you feel.

I cried in a restaurant many years ago when the waiter brought me fucking rank, rubbery, revolting squid, as an alleged substitute for fish. It was overseas, things were lost in translation, and I was only 16 and a bit out of my depth having a romantic meal with a long distance boyfriend, but that doesn't excuse my publicly crying big, fat tears over a plate of squid grin.

I went to help serve up and there it wasn't.

One of the most tragic sentences I've ever read on MN. grin grin

Many, many years ago when I was a kid, a big six month long event was going to be in our town the following year. My mother and father both got season passes on their birthdays for my grandma, along with everyone else in the family. My birthday was last in the year. When I was the only one without a ticket, I cried, even though common sense would dictate that I would get one for my own birthday. I still feel ridiculous about it to this day.

Bear I just remembered a little Winnie teddy I had when I was little, with a little satin honey pot and got a bit weepy blush

piefacerecords Sun 12-Feb-17 23:45:55

I am so jealous that people can cry over macaroni cheese sad

I never cry, absolutely never. I've really tried sometimes but nothing comes out.

FairNotFair Sun 12-Feb-17 23:47:07

Tbf I'd get pretty emotional if someone told me they didn't like Winning the Pooh too

Does anyone really like winning the pooh? grin

RhodaBorrocks Sun 12-Feb-17 23:49:37

I called my DM once to have a whinge, I can't remember what it was about, but it escalated to me crying and ended up with me sobbing down the phone "And worst of all, David Cameron is still Prime Minister!!!"

Poor DM said it took every ounce of resolve to try to remain sympathetic when she really wanted to burst out laughing. It makes me giggle now too. I think it was all PMS induced.

Sorry guys, I don't like Winnie the Pooh confused I'm sure I probably did as a small child, though, if that makes things better.
