Should I LTB, ditch the friend, or both?

DH has no self control when it comes to chocolate/crisps/biscuits etc. so we just don't buy them very often as he will happily eat the whole packet before I've even had a sniff of them.

I was talking to a mutual friend about my craving for some lovely chocolate but that I was unwilling to buy it and bring it into the house as I knew DH would eat it all before I got a chance to even taste it. The next time I met up with mutual friend he kindly gave me a large bar of my favourite chocolate and suggested I should hide it from DH so I could nibble on it when I felt like it. So I put it in a cupboard that he rarely looks in and over a week or so just popped a little square in my mouth when I felt like it.

DH went for drinks with same mutual friend a couple of evenings ago and for some unknown reason mutual friend told him about my secret chocolate stash. DH came home and went through the cupboards looking for it, found what was left and ate it all. Now I have no chocolate. WIBU to LTB?

What AnyFucker said. I'm lost for words really - probably a good thing.

I would be pretty pissed off with your dh. You say he has no self control, but I assume he doesn't go around stealing food from anyone other than you (his wider family or work colleagues for instance)? If not, then he is able to control himself, but chooses not to with you.

Yabu to be satisfied with popping a square in every now and again...are you a church mouse? Sorry op, but if my dh ate chocolate in such a restrained fashion, I too, would scoff the lot.

Although this seems light hearted, I would in all seriousness tell your DH to stop being a massive bellend.

There is only one solution.

Make DH his tea. Put the plate in front of him....very important to note at this point it must be his favourite/death row meal.

Then eat it all, in front of him.

Leave him to wash up.

Go watch TV.

Stay with your H. Else, the pig would be unleashed on a poor unsuspecting woman.

grin never confide in that friend anything that you want kept secret

Is there any diet clubs in your area where you husband can sign up to, and they will get him into a healthy eating your husband overweight from the binge eating? (I was just wondering could he be purging , because binge eating is a form of eating disorder even without the purging)

I have a stash of sweets for the DC. I can't trust that any will be left for them otherwise.

Anyone who steals my food gets put on my list.....

I struggle with this with my 12 year old DD. She gets a rocket for it. I'm damn sure I would not put up with it from a grown adult who is meant to be my partner in life! FFS, needing to hide chocolate from him!

TieGrr Thu 08-Feb-18 23:24:40

My self control is fairly bad but bloody hell, I'm like a monk compared to your DH.

Mainly, what AnyFucker said.

However, if this is meant to be 'light hearted', then go buy a basic, lockable cash box. Chuck out the coin tray. Keep your chocolate in that and keep the key about your person at all times. Tell no one. Not a word to a living soul.

ItsNachoCheese Thu 08-Feb-18 23:26:34

Its a sad state of affairs when your 'd"h doesnt respect you enough to not eat your chocolate. How would he like it if you constantly ate his favourite thing? Simply put he wouldnt so he shouldnt do it to you

DeniseBest Thu 08-Feb-18 23:29:32

Not sure if this is supposed to be a lighthearted thread but what nasty, childish behaviour from your DH and your friend.
Sounds like a vindictive set up with them having a laugh at your expense.

PotatoesOfTheCarribean Thu 08-Feb-18 23:32:58

Start taking his things and start disposing of them.

No? Because that would make you an unreasonable twat.

Yes, it's just chocolate, but ffs. He needs to grow the fuck up. Greedy shithead.

Mxyzptlk Thu 08-Feb-18 23:33:48

I can't tell if this is just jokey or if you're really annoyed.

I think the friend thought it'd be harmless for your DH to know that you had chocolate without him knowing where it was.
And DH thought it'd be funny to find it and scoff it.
Or DH absolutely couldn't prevent himself from ransacking the cupboards once he knew there was hidden chocolate.

Buy your own chocolate to hide, in future.
And if DH really can't help himself, he needs therapy while you decide whether to LTB.

I have no self control around chocolate but what he did isn't about self control it's about being selfish and putting yourself first

Teabagtits Thu 08-Feb-18 23:36:25

Is this the same husband who ate all the fancy biscuits in the tin including the wife’s share?

Those of you who have no self control around chocolate (and it's always bloody chocolate), grow up.
