Woman taken aback by her boyfriend’s ‘awful’ dinnertime criticism: ‘Why is it your job to cook?’
A woman isn’t sure if she screwed up dinner when she cooked her boyfriend’s so-called “scraps.”
She posted her story on Reddit’s “Am I the A******? (AITA)” forum. She made her boyfriend a meal by cooking leftovers from the night before. But her boyfriend refused to eat the food and mocked her for throwing a “hissy fit.”

“I (27 f) cooked my bf (41 m) ‘scraps’ for dinner. We need to go grocery shopping but have leftovers in the fridge from last night which I assumed would be eaten this evening,” she wrote. “These left overs are uncooked burger patties, pasta salad, and grilled corn. At 7 pm this evening bf asked what I was making for dinner. I reminded him of the left overs. He said I was throwing a hissy fit over not wanting to cook him a good meal.
Then he said he’d probably just eat crackers or something and he’d have to figure it out himself. Then he fell back asleep. After he fell asleep I felt horrible so I cooked up some rice, ground beef, peppers, onions, grilled some fresh corn and mixed it all together with some home made chipotle sauce then baked it with some cheese to melt. When I presented it with him he wouldn’t even taste it.

He asked if I got fresh ingredients at the store or just used what we had. I told him I cooked everything fresh but it was bought yesterday,” she explained. “The corn hadn’t been cooked before, the pepper hadn’t been cooked before, etc. it was all extra ingredients that I hadn’t used yesterday.
He then told me I ruined his night further by not listening to him and letting him make his ‘cracker meal’ and a horrible gf for trying to serve him ‘scraps’ I insisted that it’s not scraps but he kept yelling ‘scraps’ and told me to leave him alone to ‘starve’ Should I have played this differently, was I really that bad for making him this? Or AITA for not listening to his cracker thing? Or is he just in a mood and being a jerk?”
Redditors thought the boyfriend treated her horribly.
“He sounds awful to be with. Never make him a meal again,” a user wrote.
“Why was it your job to cook?” another asked.
“This entitled attitude is a Huge Red Flag,” a person wrote.
