To have been quite shocked by my friend and think this was really bad manners

I was having dinner with my friend and her two year old DS. We both ordered salmon and the dish came with new potatoes and peas. The portions were quite large so there was a bit of fussing as Webb ‘donated’ some food to DS for his dinner.

If she took some of your food for her son yes she is rude.
If she used her own portion of food, you're being ridiculous.

Exactly what Mookie said.

Puzzled 🤔

Who is Webb?

I think more shocking things have happened.

Chill out, it was some peas. Unless you were at the Dorchester I don't think it's anything to fret about. confused

Presume you mean she took from the communal veg bowl? Hope she took from her share. Cf!!

Sorry, pressed post by mistake.

Anyway, my friend suddenly announced that there was too much and started piling a load of food on my plate. Didn’t ask, or check I wanted any more. But suddenly I had this massive portion.

I know I didn’t have to eat it but that’s not the point. I just think you shouldn’t suddenly dump a load of food on somebody’s plate!

Completely lost as to what the issue is

My countdown for a glass of wine has officially begun

I just want to know who 'Webb' is?

So your AIBU is: 'Was my friend BU for dumping food on my plate without checking with me first?'

If so she was being unreasonable but I've been told that worse things happen at sea.

Ahh I see updates

It sounds like sharing with the son was not the issue. Why mention it?

It sounds like you're annoyed that she put food on your plate without asking. Which for me, couldn't be less of an issue. Either say 'no thanks, I've got enough' or just leave it.

So the problem.being she gave you extra?

Yes a bit rude if you didn't ask for it. But you don't have to eat it and just say No.

Sharing with a small child is fine I did this all this time when mine where to small to eat a full portion themselves. Espicaly if they children options where rubbish as they often preferred the adult choice.

CuriousaboutSamphire Wed 14-Feb-18 15:06:27

OK.. you, friend and her 2 year old, meal ordered and friend gave some of hers to her DS and then dumped anything else she didn't want onto your plate, as though you were another child, or a known glutton?

She has forgotten how grown ups act. You should have told her, you aren't a child and she needs to remember how it is to be an adult! Make a joke of it but, ye gods, that's an odd thing to do!

Did she force feed you ? If not then it's a non issue.

MadMags Wed 14-Feb-18 15:06:34

What?? She gave you extra food? confused
