Upset over a portion of egg fried rice (lighthearted-ish)

DH wanted to order Chinese for dinner. I would have preferred chip shop chips, but he really wanted Chinese. So I ask for sweet and sour chicken and egg fried rice. When the food arrived there was no rice. DH had forgotten to order it. So now I'm eating plain boiled rice that I've cooked myself and silently grumping because I don't want to have an argument over rice. But it's fucking noticeable that he's got exactly what he wanted to eat and I don't angry

So AIBU to be cross about the lack of egg fried rice? And WIBU to make him go to the chip shop for the chips he talked me out of with the promise of the aforementioned rice?

Yanbu pack him off to the chip shop.

Yea, I'd have made him go right back while keeping the good wrapped up grin

I sent my ex back to the takeaway when they sent boiled rice and I'd ordered pilau more than once
And I actually had some rice - No fucking way I'd have made my own!

Yeah, ywbu to make him go out again, sorry. Annoying, but these things happen.

Gooseygoosey12345 Sat 15-Apr-17 20:52:17

Yeah he'd be going back. Don't fuck with my food grin I've been know to get hangry

What does he have? Could you go halves?

Yanbu but to make egg fried rice, just add boiled rice to a wok with a bit of oil in, add a beaten egg, and a splash of soy sauce. It's exactly the same as from the Chinese.

I may or may not have cried at a similar situation (disclaimer: am v pregnant) - DH did an immediate volte-face and went back to collect the correct food (what's worse is that I'd ordered it online so it was my mistake!).

That is just rubbish i would have been miffed We had a chinese on mothers day Dh went i asked for chicken satay skewers and noodles i got chicken satay insauce with boiled rice i was actually gutted.

He's got chicken chow mein and spring rolls, plus he's splitting a portion of chicken balls with DS1. He's also shared some of the chow mein with him since he would have been having some of my rice. So he's the only person who actually got what they wanted to eat today.

I should have just cooked in the first place.

Plain rice when you really want egg fried rice is one of life's great little disappointments

MrsJayy Sat 15-Apr-17 21:06:02

It really is one of those och no life moments meh boiled rice

Crispbutty Sat 15-Apr-17 21:06:06

Plain rice is boring and bland.

GoldenHoops Sat 15-Apr-17 21:09:52

My Dh went to get fish and chips for everyone and forgot to get me any. I may have sulked!

MusicToMyEars800 Sat 15-Apr-17 21:13:29

I would be fuming and have a right hump, Yanbu!! make him go to the chippy and buy you what you want.

IrregularCommentary Sat 15-Apr-17 21:13:46

Send him back.

BlueDaisies Sat 15-Apr-17 21:14:08

I'd have sent him straight back out too!

Clutterbugsmum Sat 15-Apr-17 21:15:15

I think I may be inclined to dish his dinner up to tomorrow missing the meat.

There is no excuse for forgetting 1 off the 2 things he had to get you, while conveniently remembering his 2 things.

Egg fried rice is just plain rice, tossed with hot oil and an egg. Takes about a minute to turn plain rice into egg fried rice. Why don't you just do that?

Liara Sat 15-Apr-17 21:17:16

(and make him wash it up)

iklboo Sat 15-Apr-17 21:21:05

DH isn't drinking tonight. Should I send him out for Chinese for me lush

BarbaraofSeville Sat 15-Apr-17 21:23:23

YABU and YANBU. Chinese takeaways make the best chips ever, so no need for chip shop chips.

However, sweet and sour usually comes with a side, so why wasn't one sent? Ours do chips or boiled rice free or fried rice for 60 p extra.
