Food fights!?

    Does anyone fight over food with their significant other?

    Every time there's salsa in this house, it's asking for an arguement!! When my bf Robs opens the jar, i wait for it, for him to warn me about scooping. And i scoop, because i love the salsa. He dips, but only to 'set an example'. Then when i pack a tanty, saying 'Fine!! Have the salsa and chips all to yourself then, and i hope you get a fat ass!' Then he starts scooping, and he says 'well when it's salsa for one, you gotta scoop, else there will be salsa left, and no chips.' Grrrr. 

    We argue about cream cheese too. Rob thinks i put half a tub on 2 pieces of toast. Well he should have never told me about cream cheese with tomato on toast!! I'm like 'Until i get cottage cheese thighs, piss off!' But he complains when the tub is empty, no matter when it is empty. He's lucky though that i can't eat much sweet things, i just don't have much of a sweet tooth. So about 80% of the ice cream is his for the taking. He's got a pretty good deal i reckon, as opposed to me, cut my nose off to spite my face!

    Coke is another story all together.

    big_smilebig_smile:  Sorry but it did make me laugh.  Sounds like you need to purchase back ups so that there are always two on hand - once the "tub is empty", you can always pull out the back up.  Just remember to buy the new back up the next time you're at the store.

    Does your driving get criticized, too?  I can handle my honey griping about my putting ketchup on high class steak, but my wheel time is off limits!  lol

    OMG Ghost, how ironic. I was just about to post a thread about driving and speed freaks. By bf has $5000 worth of fines, 90% of them because of speeding, and he just walked in the door and told me he got a $200 fine for going 70k in a 50k area! Never bloody learns!! But yes, i drive like my mum apparently, which is too slow, and like a a half blind person!!

    $5,000?? Goodness, I got one $200 ticket and they told me that 2 mph more would have lost me my license...that was quite a while ago though. No disagreements about food here, my husband cooks wonderful food, tells me to eat everything I want, and always offers the last bit of any food I like. If we run out, he will offer to walk down to the grocery store to replenish the stock of that particular item. I guess every couple has different points of contention smile.

      Wow your husband sounds wonderful!! My man is bloody territorial about his food! lol But my bf insists that ppl are animals, that we come from apes, he's very strong about this opinion. Maybe that's why, he certainly uses it as an excuse!

        He definitely is big_smile. I always figured...if someone dislikes you eating the food that's available in the house, why don't they just buy their own? Backups sound like a good idea if he has issues with it.

    Yeah but we are a couple, we are like peas and pud, but shit can we get petty!! We can't buy our own food, because we share our money, what's mine is your's, your's is mine, but noooooooo!! lol

    your right about 'backups' you would think that, that would solve the issue right? But noooo again. When the salsa jar is empty, it's empty, and who's to blame? Me of course, and i can't really defend myself when iv'e been caught, red handed, in the fridge, salsa and spoon in hand!
