If you ask for melon with a bit of yoghurt for breakfast AIBU to expect not to get a full cereal bowl of yoghurt with 4 pieces of melon, a banana and a dollop of blackcurrant jam on top without being told I;m ungrateful.

OP posts:

I think he was the rude one. He asked what you wanted, you told him, he ignored it and did what he wanted instead. Then called you ungrateful for not thanking him for ignoring your wishes? Fuck that.

Full cereal bowl of yoghurt ? Maybe it was going out of date and he wanted it used up?

My lovely DH cooks pasta ..well in this case "cook" would mean "boil it to buggery and you can only eat it with a straw " Hmm

I cook the pasta here . Saves tears .

@Chesterfieldsofa 😂😂😂 you know I never even thought about that. I am certain I'm cracking up!

What is all this he made an effort stuff?

He asked OP why she wanted, melon and yoghurt she replied and he as an adult couldn’t grasp that and gave her something different! That’s not him making an effort thats him not listening

So no the OP isn’t ungrateful Confused

So if someone with a cock gives us something we didn’t ask for and don’t like we must bow down and be grateful? Why?

This is how it should have happened;

DP: What would you like for breakfast?
OP: Ooh, some melon with a bit of yogurt please.
DP: Would you like some banana and/or jam with that?
OP: No thanks, just melon and yoghurt.
DP: Does melon and yoghurt

It is possible to appreciate someone doing something for you, whilst being irritated by their lack of listening skills.

Oops, didn't mean to bold that, sorry!

My beloved DH does lots of wonderful things for me so it is very difficult to point out when what he has done is JUST WRONG! I have kind of got used to toast with blobs of butter and jam on it, in different places, rather than toast spread all over with butter, right to the edges, and then with jam. He says he thinks it is more interesting not to know whether you are going to get a bite with butter, a bite with jam, or a bite with both (or a bite with none but he doesn't say that). Since he quite often brings me breakfast in bed at the weekend I can't really complain......

Well, maybe a bit U but I would be the same. Frankly I hate it when DH does anything like this for me as I have very strong views on how I want things done and, especially at breakfast, how much I want to do myself- if I’ve said I’d like toast and jam for breakfast, make the toast and put the jam on the table. Don’t put the jam on the fucking toast like it’s your own fucking breakfast you’re making, DH, you arsehole.

OMG that sounds devine. Did you try some.
I would never have thought of putting yogurt with jam.
I dip oranges and apples in strawberry yogart.

I agree o.p I’m very particular with food and it annoys me when people change what I ask for I’d rather make my own. Yanbu
