To think I don’t need to be told how much bread to order

DS has been having cereal instead of toast for the last few nights so we have around half a loaf more than we usually would, DP told me I need to keep an eye on the bread situation.

AIBU to think I am a grown adult who is quite capable of this and it really does not need to be commented on!

Your dp is a very lucky man if his worries end at a loaf...

keep an eye on the bread situation

My DC is now asking why I am laughing so much. What exactly does he think is going to happen? That the bread is going to rise up and take over the house in some sort of bread-apocalypse?

Bread situation? You cannot be serious!

@Winterdaysarehere true!

@LaurieSchafferIsAllBitterNow that gives me flashbacks of my mother’s bread & butter pudding!

@DeathStare bread-apocalypse love it! 😂

@Pipandmum yep! That’s what was said

Luckily dh is usually to exhausted to micro manage me more a days, but before he was a teacher her would sometimes make ‘ helpful suggestions’ about various aspects of one of my jobs . It inevitably left him wishing he hadn’t.

This is my DH

After ten years of this shit, I find ignoring him works well

'bread situation'

Oh crumbs! He’s being a bit crusty.

DP gave me a pack with three of something in, and said helpfully, “there’s one each for you and both DC”. I did say “yes, I can count to three thank you.”

I’d be giving him regular updates on the bread situation from now on. Every half an hour ought to do it. I’m sure he’ll appreciate being kept in the loop.

Are you kidding - half a loaf??? I did (very much tongue in cheek) get told to watch my stockpiling habit (nothing to do with brexit, it's just me) because we had 17 bottles of shampoo and 8 bottles of olive oil not to mention 24 tubes of toothpaste. In come in handy since h left me, I barely need to shop

The bread situation grin

My favourite part of wife work is managing the bread situation, it's an arduous but fulfilling task

Definitely give him regular updates on the ‘situation’, maybe have a bread level alert system.
We’re now at breadcon 3...

Please create some random bread situation reminders and updates on his phone.

Captain's Log: The Bread Situation

22:00hrs There are six slices remaining. After careful analysis, this appears to be just under half of the loaf. A more precise measurement is unavailable as the end slice of bread is thicker than the others and presents an unexpected variable.

23:00hrs There are still six slices remaining.

07:33hrs There are four slices remaining and a trail of breadcrumbs leaking from a slightly warm toaster. There is a buttery knife in the sink. Hypothesis - two slices have been taken and someone, somewhere in the house, is eating toast.

@DeathStare I just choked on my tea!

Mamsnetter2020 Mon 09-Dec-19 22:07:08


He gets even more uppity when we’re at the other end of the scale & there is not much bread 🙈

GabsAlot Mon 09-Dec-19 22:07:54

This is one of the best threads I have read on mumsnet. Brilliant.

Michaelbaubles Mon 09-Dec-19 22:10:05

Men can be weird about bread. DP will way every slice of bread in a loaf no matter if it’s a week old and there’s new, nice bread. It’s my house and I buy the food and I’m begging him please, throw that crap dried out slice away and use the new loaf, but no, he’ll eat it. I mean, it’s good in a way but I double check before he makes me something bready that he’s using bread from this decade at least.

T0tallyFuckedUpFamily Mon 09-Dec-19 22:11:23

Oh you have to send him BeeFarseer’s message! Then tell us his response! grin

Jayaywhynot Mon 09-Dec-19 22:11:33

Mine tried to give me a lecture on toilet roll usage, he worked out his much we were spending a month on loo roll. Christ hmm if he wasnt so full of shit we might not use so much grin

ActualHornist Mon 09-Dec-19 22:12:15

We've got three loaves on the go. Plus some naans.

I love bread, me.

I'm also literally lol at the phrase bread situation. Yanbu. As a solution don't buy any bread ever again. Or if you would like to eat bread, buy it and hide it in your knicker drawer. Ffs! What a cock!
