So rude of DH

We briefly visited my grandmother earlier to take her some shopping. She got a big box of broken biscuits out and DH ripped into the box, complained that it was “full of custard creams” and just started throwing them onto the coffee table saying “these can get to fuck” whilst hunting for a specific type of biscuit. It’s not the swearing that got me ( my grandma swears more than I do) but literally chucking unwanted biscuits onto the table?? I told him I thought he was being rude and he says I am over reacting as my grandma wasn’t bothered but she clearly wasn’t happy as she marched into the kitchen to grab a packet of Ringtons instead. Aibu thinking he was rude?? I’d never do that in front of his family. He’s refusing to acknowledge it now and has got a face on over it. I’m so embarrassed.

I'm sorry but that is quite funny!

Massively rude. Is he always such a twat?

VeraPink Wed 23-Sep-20 21:57:18

Really really rude! I’d have been mortified.

What an utter arse. He should get to fuck, not the custard creams.

That’s really poor behaviour.

A bit of a joke about only being custard creams, fine but chucking them on the table was out of order.

Where do people find these man children?! 😂😂😂

Blimey. I'm trying to imagine this happening, but I can't.

Of course he was rude! He’s thrown an old ladies’ biscuits about. I doubt she’ll really want to eat those now.

BTW, what are Ringtons?

Your poor grandmother - all I can think of is crumbs going everywhere and her having to clear up. Did he think he was being funny? Is he always so uncouth?

CoffeeRunner Wed 23-Sep-20 22:00:45

Coincidentally as I read OPs post, I was picturing the lounge & coffee table from The Royle Family. Sounds like something Jim would do.

DollyDoneMore Wed 23-Sep-20 22:01:21

Yeah, Ringtons? What?

LindaEllen Wed 23-Sep-20 22:01:47

I mean, it depends entirely on his relationship with your grandmother, and her reaction. If I was at my dad's house I'd absolutely do this :D and he'd put the biscuits back in the box after (or I'd clean up after myself actually haha) but if I was at my partner's mum's I'd eat what I was given and say thank you!

Free the custard creams. He sounds like a laugh your OH smile

Plesky Wed 23-Sep-20 22:02:00

I think of broken biscuits as being from the distant past — is your grandmother breaking her own? You’re married to a total yahoo, either way.

iMatter Wed 23-Sep-20 22:02:03

What a dick

And embarrassment

gobbynorthernbird Wed 23-Sep-20 22:02:22

He's right, though. Custard creams can get to fuck. And bourbons.

Is he a giant toddler? Incredibly rude! He should apologise to her and buy her some chocolates or expensive biscuitsbiscuit

CoffeeRunner Wed 23-Sep-20 22:03:41

@Plesky you can buy the boxes of broken biscuits in our local Food Warehouse (big Iceland) for £2.49. I think that’s what OP is talking about.

He is BU because custard creams are great. I don't know if how you're telling it but it sounds quite funny, especially if the swearing isn't unusual/not an issue...

oreshina Wed 23-Sep-20 22:05:15

He would have been swiftly booted out the door at my grandparents! Everyone is different though. Maybe he thought he was being funny? Was it out of character?

pumpkinpie01 Wed 23-Sep-20 22:05:46

I really shouldn't be laughing at how rude that is , but I just can't help it , custard cream debris all over the table as he begins a savage hunt for a better option 😂

Ringtons Tea is a company that delivers tea coffee and biscuits around the north east

Bootikin Wed 23-Sep-20 22:11:29

Ugh. He sounds like a revolting savage. Surely this isn’t the first time he’s behaved like this? What an awful rude oik. I can’t imagine being around someone like this. Sympathy to OP.
