So H2B says 'I fancy something to eat' and I said I was hungry too and would like some toast.

Me - I'd love some toast if your getting something.
Him - I always make the toast
Me - I made dinner. I always make dinner. If you make the dinner, I'd make the toast.
Him - ok well I'll make dinner on Friday.
Me - fine

20 mins goes past

Him - I think I'd like some banana and peanut butter on my toast
Me - help yourself. I asked you half an hour ago for some toast and you've just sat there!
Him - you didn't actually ask me
Me - I'm not going beg you for toast! Forget it.

I'm now in bed sulking.

I am aware this is completely trivial and ridiculous but AIBU?!

Erm I think he thought you were making toast because he offered to cook dinner on Friday

SanitysSake Tue 21-Mar-17 21:44:44

Question is.. Did he make himself some toast?!

If he did... and he didn't make you any? Yup.. He'd be in a world of trouble in this house!

DappledThings Tue 21-Mar-17 21:45:13

Yep, what sooper said. You said you'd make it

Whatthefreakinwhatnow Tue 21-Mar-17 21:45:27

Christ, all a bit petty isn't it?! confused

harderandharder2breathe Tue 21-Mar-17 21:45:56

But you said you'd make it if he made dinner, he said he'd make dinner on Friday, you said fine. So you should be making toast!

I also love toast and I feel your frustration grin

Don't worry. It's a petty bicker which most couples sometimes have.

Despairbunny Tue 21-Mar-17 21:46:50

Now I really want some toast!

Despairbunny Tue 21-Mar-17 21:47:27

But I have a cat on me. Maybe he will go & make the toast?

And he's sitting downstairs with twice as much toast. I think he's done well here. grin

MrsA2015 Tue 21-Mar-17 21:48:17

So who made the toast?

kingscrossnoodle Tue 21-Mar-17 21:48:49

Yes YABU to sulk in bed over toast. Assuming you are both adults you should start acting like it. Enjoy being together rather than spending time bickering and sulking like a toddler

Can't say I'd get worked up about it tbh
I always prefer to make my own toast anyway, it's Never quite right when someone else makes it! Except maternity ward toast, obviously.

Stab him when he falls asleep...with a butter knife.
That'll learn him.

Lweji Tue 21-Mar-17 21:50:06

Considering that few (any?) people here have understood that exchange, how was that good communication?

What do you hope to achieve by sulking?

Despairbunny Tue 21-Mar-17 21:51:29


Maternity ward toast was why I had a home birth second time round. Worst. Toast. Ever. Don't even get me started on the tea.


Semaphorically Tue 21-Mar-17 21:51:49

Why are you eating toast so late at night?

That aside...

What's the back story? I doubt you're sulking about one toast-related exchange?

bloodymaria Tue 21-Mar-17 21:53:17

YABU for getting upset over toast! Seems like you were both being lazy.

WorraLiberty Tue 21-Mar-17 21:53:37

Why are you eating toast so late at night?

Late at night? It's not even 10 o'clock and they are adults after all grin

ArgyMargy Tue 21-Mar-17 21:55:50

Clearly neither of you actually needed to eat. Be grateful you avoided mindless consumption of unnecessary calories.

hockityponktas Tue 21-Mar-17 21:56:31

Despair it was the best worst toast I've ever eaten! Absolutely starving at that point.
I have to agree about the tea though, no colour at all, it was lukewarm and I had to drink it through a straw as I couldn't movehmm

Semaphorically Tue 21-Mar-17 21:58:14

I've always thought of toast as a purely breakfast food. Is it a night time snack too?

Despairbunny Tue 21-Mar-17 21:58:24

I was also absolutely starving, but couldn't face the anaemic warm bread with margarine & the tea which was the same colour as the (white) mug.

Contrast with homebirth - bacon sandwich, proper cup of tea, flapjack. Sorted.

hockityponktas Tue 21-Mar-17 21:58:31

I'd gone to bed to get an early night, I'm seriously considering getting up to get some toast now.
Unless anyone else is making some?

Despairbunny Tue 21-Mar-17 21:59:07

Semaphorically we eat toast at all hours here. I genuinely think my kids might starve if toast didn't exist.
