Ordering chips, AIBU?

The local Chinese takeaway does really good chips. Amazing ones. Got to know this when they sent me some by accident a few weeks ago.

So tonight, DH and I order a takeaway and having been ill all week and struggling through it at work, I fancied treating myself to some of those amazing chips as a side to my meal.

DH strongly objected on two grounds; that I won't eat them all and that its not right to have chips as a side to Chinese food. As I was doing the order online, I just ignored him and added the chips.

When the meal arrived he got really would up about the chips being there, going on and on about how it wasn't a right thing to order, how I was wasting food, how it was unhealthy etc.... He wouldn't let it go and made a huge issue of it.

He then said that I'm banned from ever ordering chips with a Chinese takeaway again. He's now sulking in another room.

I accept that it's not in any way traditional, but they're so good, I feel like sh*t and wanted some extra carbs as a treat. I don't do it every time I order Chinese food. Was his reaction OTT or AIBU about the chips?

Woah- who the fuck does he think he is, barring you from ordering food?

Your dh sounds like a wanker

Huffing in another room? Over chips?

Is he always such a knob?

Is he serious?!

LagunaBubbles Thu 30-Nov-17 21:13:01

You are seriously asking if your DH is allowed to dictate to you what you eat?

What a weird reaction to some chips! What's the issue?

Our Chinese does amazing chips too and when they're dipped in sweet and sour.... mmmmmm

Chips in sweet n sour? Wait, this is a game-changer! LTB OP. It's the only way.

It’s never unreasonable to order chips with any meal, particularly Chinese!

Pfft at him telling you you’re banned from ordering them again.

Ordering chips is never unreasonable. (Well, in most circumstances, including these.)

If I could shove a grip across the internet I'd send him one.

AlternativeTentacle Thu 30-Nov-17 21:15:20

we have always had chips with chinese food. if we have extra, i freeze them and reheat in the oven. He is a colossal twat. And not your boss.

Unhealthy chips with your takeaway? grin grin hahaha he’s bonkers!

Londonbum Thu 30-Nov-17 21:15:31

Well, besides the fact that your DH is a huge twat who has picked a very peculiar hill to die on here, who doesn't order chips with their Chinese?! I've never had a Chinese without some. Hope you have enjoyed them anyway!

Madonnasmum Thu 30-Nov-17 21:15:37

You have to ask???? No! He's being an absolute dick!

PavlovianLunge Thu 30-Nov-17 21:15:41

Personally, I don’t like chips with Chinese, but if you do, go for it.

Oh and tell your DH that he doesn’t dictate what you eat. Appalling behaviour.

AnneLovesGilbert Thu 30-Nov-17 21:15:46

Fuck him. Did you at least get to eat them? You’re an adult. You get to eat anything you bloody well want to. He’s being a bullying, dictatorial knob head. What you eat is not up for discussion. Tell him to back the hell off.

I hope you feel better soon flowers

Wanker. You have chips from the Chinese to mop up the lovely sauces.

ShirleyPhallus Thu 30-Nov-17 21:16:02

What a wang

Chinese chips are the best chips ever! Dipped in sweet and sour sauce they are fucking delicious

SparklingSnowdrops Thu 30-Nov-17 21:16:07

We always order chips with our Chinese!

Ordering me not to do something is a sure fire way to ensure I will do the thing every day for the rest of my life.

LadyOfTheCanyon Thu 30-Nov-17 21:16:26

Leaving aside the fact that your DP sounds like a festering manchild, chips with Chinese does seem mental. Unless you're not having rice, in which case crack on.

Lovely22 Thu 30-Nov-17 21:16:39

What why? Is he usually so highly strung?

Chips dipped in sweet and sour are a food of the gods. He's an idiot.
