In a post on Reddit, a guy says he's not furious, just 'mildly annoyed' that his girlfriend ate some of his food without asking. He has a routine, and it bugs him that his routine was interrupted. Is he a completely psycho, or just a dude who's stuck in his ways and would like a little heads-up if things are going to change? Here's his story...
I eat the same breakfast every work day: six fried eggs and an orange (yes, I know this is a lot of food for most people, but I weigh 300 pounds and need to be sure I don't get hungry before lunch).
My girlfriend is well aware of this. She doesn't like eggs and never eats them, so it works out perfectly because each week when we go grocery shopping, I buy a 30-pack of eggs, which lasts exactly the week (6 eggs x 5 days = 30).
I work Thursday to Monday every week. This past Sunday evening (when I had six eggs left in the carton for Monday morning), I was in the shower and came out to discover that my girlfriend had used one of my eggs to make a cake.
I wasn't really upset with her, but I was mildly annoyed because she knows full well that I was planning to eat it for breakfast the next day (and it was too late to go back out to get more eggs).
I asked her to please let me know next time we're at the grocery store if she plans to need an egg that week so we can buy extra. She said I'm being ridiculous, that it's just one egg, and that she shouldn't have to plan everything ahead like that.
Again, I want to emphasize that I'm not actually mad at her, just mildly annoyed. But she seems to think even that's an overreaction. AITA?
Here's what the chickens had to say in the comments:
Yta she used 1 egg, your weight isn't an excuse to eat like that. I weigh 292lb at my heaviest I was 307- that's a ridiculous amount of eggs to eat.
No one needs to be 300lbs, he will survive with just 5 eggs for breakfast one day.
This is a ridiculous thing to be annoyed about. One time, your girlfriend eats 1/6 of your breakfast.
A poultry 5 eggs*
Now, come on, you guys. These yolks are ridiculous.
You guys are cracking some good ones XD
I cackled like a hen when I read these!
Eggzactly right. He’s getting all scrambled over his gf poaching one of his eggs? I think he’s cracked! His girlfriend is probably shell shocked that this is an issue. Look on the sunny side dude, you have a gf who made cake. Just come over easy next time OP.
