When dh has Cereal he drinks the left over milk from the bowl after he finishes. Aibu to think that it's discusting and It's not right or is he to think it's OK and normal to do it?

He is entirely reasonable. Sorry.

StillaChocoholic Mon 13-Feb-17 21:12:52

He's right, that's how it's done.

You should drink the milk with a spoon IMO, not directly from the bowl.

I love to drink the milk up! Yabvvvvu

'Tis the law.

pictish Mon 13-Feb-17 21:13:44

I do that too. So yabu.

I do that too. With a big slurp. wink

No, you're right, this is NO WAY to enjoy cereal. He must be draining the milk off the spoon and eating dryish cereal for most of the bowl. I think each spoonful should contain a good blend of both cereally and milky goodness... Anything else is an abomination like eating around the edge of a Jaffa cake and leaving all the orange goo until end!

Prepare to have your mind blown...

I eat cereal without milk. Milk on cereal is gross.

KoalaDownUnder Mon 13-Feb-17 21:17:40

YABU. Unless he drinks directly from the bowl, in which case he is gross and YANBU.

Get him some sugary Kellogg's cereal. They are currently giving away spoons which are also straws. DS has 5.

WorraLiberty Mon 13-Feb-17 21:18:40

Would you rather he decanted it into a champagne flute?

You mean, you pour the leftover milk with all the cereal crumbs etc in to a glass to drink?!


FatOldBag Mon 13-Feb-17 21:20:11

He is right. It's got to be done. I use loads of milk just to make sure there's plenty to drink afterwards, all yummy and cereal flavoured. Mmmm <runs off to get cereal>.

KoalaDownUnder Mon 13-Feb-17 21:20:51

No, I mean spooning it up (not decanting it)!

HermioneJeanGranger Mon 13-Feb-17 21:21:09

He's right, sorry. Drinking it with a spoon takes ages, pouring it into a glass (wtf) is a waste of a glass, and chucking it away is a waste of milk!

KoalaDownUnder Mon 13-Feb-17 21:21:46

(I don't do anything, I don't eat cereal - but picking up the bowl and drinking from the lip is just grim)

DancingHouse Mon 13-Feb-17 21:22:52

What else are you going to do with that milk? Pour it back into the carton?

soontobemrsmckeown Mon 13-Feb-17 21:23:35

He drinks it directly from the bowl.

Bellebullerebelle Mon 13-Feb-17 21:24:05

Nobody else just refill the bowl with cereal til the milk is gone?

soontobemrsmckeown Mon 13-Feb-17 21:24:42

Once Cereal is gone it goes down the drain if any left. You just put enough on to eat it. Not a full bowl full of milk

KoalaDownUnder Mon 13-Feb-17 21:24:44

YANBU then.

QueenMortificado Mon 13-Feb-17 21:28:00

Thank god Koala!

I hate both milk and cereal, but there is something delightfully Beauty and the Beast-esque about drinking straight from the bowl

Olympiathequeen Mon 13-Feb-17 21:29:54

Shouldn't put so much milk in he needs to drink from the bowl. Put less in and a couple of spoonfuls should clear the bowl.
