When you go out to eat

Does your DH/SO allow you to order your own food and your kids to order their own food or do you and your kids have to share whatever he orders with him?

It's so embarrassing that we all share his entree. Usually the waitresses will make a remark that we can't possible be full. I don't even want to go out to eat anymore.

  • That seems borderline abusive to me.

  • You are joking right?! If my DH did that to me and the kids. We would not be going out to eat, ever. I would tell him "That's ok. I will cook. At least I know we will get full this way. Cheap ass"

  • OMG! That is so sad! I have never had to share an entree. I would refuse to go out to dinner with him if that was the case. He's treating you like a dog by giving you scraps. That is humiliating in public! So he gets to go out to dinner & eat what he wants & you have to wait to get some food? No that is not the norm anywhere here in the USA. That is unacceptable to do to anyone especially in public. How about going to get a pizza & eating it at home so everyone can have a slice? Don't let this Man humiliate you please.

  • I don't blame you for not wanting to go out any more. How humiliating. Is he always this controlling? Why doesn't he want you to order for yourself? Is he just stingy? Why bother going out at all?

  • Is he cheap, or a chauvinistic asshole, or both?

    That is not normal. Going out to eat is a treat that everyone should enjoy. Sorry you have to deal with someone like him.
