When you're in a relationship and one person's chronically late while the other is a stickler for earliness, things can get heated.
One woman is asking Reddit whether she did the right thing by throwing her husband's dinner in the trash because she was so fed up with his lateness. Here's teh story.
My husband could burn cereal so I do all the cooking in the household, although he does balance the division of labor out pretty well with other chores. The problem is that he is chronically late for dinner.
We agreed months ago to have dinner at 6:30 every night to try and get the problem under control, but it hasn't helped at at. Every day he gets home from work at 5:30, I remind him that dinner will be ready in exactly one hour and to make sure he is ready. Every. Single. Day. he sits down at the table 10 to 20 minutes late. Every single day he yells "I'll be down in just a second!" from his computer room while I am sitting there watching my food get cold.
