dis, mine is a swine for doing this.

He's just had baked potato with ham, cheese and beans and has gone and he's just made a huge sandwich using the rest of the nice hamangry

Mine comes home and makes a cheese sandwich.

Whatever is for dinner, and how ever long it is going to be. hmm

Glad mine is not the only one, it drives me crazy!!!! Although he dosen't do it in secret he stands and looks in biscuit cupboard while I'm making dinner.

I thought I was mad to be anoyed about it, at least now I know I'm not alone!

but why do you get annoyed about it?
I'd b e annoyed if dp was stuffing his face and then not eating a dinner i'd prepared.
but if he's hungry then what's the problem with him eating something??

i don't get it.

Sounds like something I would do- well, a curry is going to take about an hour isn't it blush

YABVU to eat a curry when I am not envy

littlebrownmouse Thu 18-Jun-09 19:37:58

I do it. Am I unreasonable or just a greedy pig?

PlumBumMum Thu 18-Jun-09 19:38:20

thisisyesterday I think the first time I got annoyed was because he did it infront of the kids, so now it just annoys me silly I know!

wouldn't bother me

he is a grown up - i would assume he is hungry and wants to eat

he can eat what he wants, when he wants surely?

because a curry is a treat to us, expensive, and i think if u are hungry wait 20 mina and really enjoy it. don't ram half a warbutons down your throat before ordering.

thisisyesterday Thu 18-Jun-09 19:52:30

i'm sure he'll still enjoy it disenchanted.
you don't have to be ravenous to enjoy a meal do you?

calm down dear! it doesn't matter a jot in the grand scheme of things, forget about it, enjoy your curry and have a nice evening in

My family are like you - we will make ourselves hungry by putting off a meal out to the point of stupidity (eg on my mum's birthday we sat down to lunch at 5) and we are all used to it, but my poor DH was almost passing out and had to buy a sandwich. He eats when he is hungry - end of story! No matter when/what dinner is.

wouldn't bother me either.

Last time I looked it's a free country.

OP you seem to have confused your mother/wife roles.

You are mother to the children and wife to your dh.

mumeeee Thu 18-Jun-09 23:14:05

YABU. Why can't he eat if he is hungry? My Dh used to be able to do this and still eat and enjoy a curry. H

I get annoyed with my wife for eating before meals. OTOH it's ok for me to do it, because if she does it she won't eat her dinner, but I will. wink

i am obviously a pig because i am always delighted if DP eats something like toast etc (not a treat I want!!!) before we get a take away - means he won't eat it all grin - more for me... HA!
