To have flattened the sandwiches?

Been dieting for weeks, lost lots of weight and now below target. Thought I'd treat myself to a Burger King today. DH knee my plans as i had been banging on about it all week. I was really looking forward to it after eating like a saint all week.
So plan was today to go and do shopping and then pop to Burger King. Again I mentioned how much I was looking forward to eating this thing I'd been craving all week.
So we took the shopping home, I sort the dog out only to go into kitchen and see DH handing me a bacon sandwich. I said "what's that for?" So he said "well I knew you were hungry so I thought I'd save us the drive". I was fuming and told him I didn't want that, I wanted to go and buy what I'd been planning to buy all week! He said I was being a brat and ungrateful and if I desperately wanted BK I could drive myself - knowing full well I cant fucking drive!!!
So out of pure frustration I hammered the sandwich not realising that he'd put egg in it which splattered everywhere meaning I burnt my hand in the process. Now we're not talking.
AIBU to think he created this by going back on plans and not realising how fucking difficult dieting is when it's relentless for weeks?
Slightly hormonal so am prepared to hear I'm over reacting .

Why do you think he made the sandwich for you? Was he trying to be controlling? Was he being lazy because he didn't want to drive to BK? Was he trying to be nice because he knew you were hungry?
I think whether or not YABU depends on what you think his motives were.

Ridiculous over reaction. Poor bloke probably thought he was being kind, if someone made me a bacon and egg sandwich I'd think they were lovely.
But then I can't imagine why anyone would go to the effort of dieting all week just to backtrack with something as horrible as anything from BK, but horses for courses I suppose.

I'm on the fence. If you'd come on here grumbling that you'd wanted BK but got a sandwich because DH wouldn't drive you, I'd have been sympathetic. I'd also have pointed out that being the only driver is a pain, and he may not have wanted to go out again.
you shouldn't have hammered the sandwich
Where were you when he was making it?
