A LARGE box of chocolates.

Just discovered that my DH scoffed the entirety of a large box of Lindt assorted chocolates over the weekend by himself (bar two pieces that he offered me on Friday).

I feel... Repulsed. We rarely buy 'treats' (his idea) because he has poor self control. He bought these on Friday with the excuse reason that it was an anniversary weekend.

I only know about the choc demolition because I had a peek inside the box just now only to find a few empty wrappers shock. It's also the fact that the box is left in place...

AIBU to feel this way? Genuinely conflicted .. I feel somewhat controlling .

u ok hun?

You bought them on Friday, but you only just looked. Surely that’s like putting a treat in front of a dog and telling it not to eat it for 3 days. Sorry I would have eaten them too waiting that long and would feel guilty

So if he started on Friday that is three lindor chocolates a day. Hardly repulsive!

I might be unreasonable, but it wasn't 3 a day - "337g pack should contain roughly 26 to 27 pieces"

Totally unreasonable.

Repulsed? It's chocolate for fucks sake, not heroin.

You seem a bit crazy

They were "limited edition" too. Divorce him, take him for everything he has.

I ate one of those boxes in a day. It was my birthday, but still.

A box in a day might be slightly excessive. In the course of a weekend? Hardly unusual. Why didn't you have some earlier?

I really fancy some Lindt now

Pack ccontains say 26. You ate 2. That's 24. Friday. Saturday. Sunday. Monday.

That's 6 a day. Easily done if he's having me each time he goes in the kitchen etc.

And you know he has poor self control so will just keep taking one out the box every time it's near.

And it's not a large box of chocs.

But if you're repulsed by your partner for something he'd likely do again and isn't sorry for, you should probably consider leaving him

Do you have issues with food? I could eat 26 lindor over two days. Easily. I'm not overweight either.

Redglitter Tue 26-Mar-19 01:23:06

Ffs it's not like he ate them in the space of a couple of hours? Repulsed seems a huge over reaction

nocoolnamesleft Tue 26-Mar-19 01:25:41

Let me explain. This is a big box of chocolates. Hope that helps.

BettyBooJustDoinTheDoo Tue 26-Mar-19 01:27:44

Repulsed? Really? He had 6 a day not 60 hmm

Walnutwhipster Tue 26-Mar-19 01:28:57

6 chocolates a day and you're repulsed? That's weird.

Preggosaurus9 Tue 26-Mar-19 01:30:35

337g is not a LARGE box of chocolates. Kinda bizarre that you think so!

I'd easily demolish that in 1 day. Rightly so, Lindt is addictive.

If it bothers you that much, next time buy two LARGE boxes. One for you, one for DH.

@nocoolnamesleft shock

Welcome to my world.
I don’t eat chocolate very often, maybe 2 slices of chocolate orange or 2 triangles of toblerone a week.
I go to the cupboard
It’s all gone

NunoGoncalves Tue 26-Mar-19 01:43:00

Huge overreaction, OP.

Purpleartichoke Tue 26-Mar-19 01:49:34

Fair to be unhappy he ate more than half. Repulsed? No.

PillowTalker Tue 26-Mar-19 01:54:10

Somewhere else there's a "WIBU to comfort eat and binge whole box of chocolates to escape my overbearing and controlling wife" thread

PyongyangKipperbang Tue 26-Mar-19 02:08:09

Well I would be repulsed by someone so lacking in self control that they pig out their greedy face on an entire box of chocolates that was meant to be shared.

But if past threads are anything to go by, I am in the minority on MN. Apparently stealing a partners/colleagues/childs possessions are fine as long as they are made of chocolate as they dont seem to count if the greedy pig just wants them hmm

StoppinBy Tue 26-Mar-19 02:08:23

Haha - of my DH did that the only feeling I would have is to be pissed off.... half those chocolates were mine....mine....all mine.

Then I would buy my own and eat them all and only give him one lol
