Would you consider this to be rude and inconsiderate to others?

OK so here is the deal I fixed dinner last night which consisted of 4 boneless pork loins(figured one for each of us); mashed potatoes; green beans and a salad.  So I fixed my 2 boys plates and got them sat down and starting to eat and went back to get myself a plate and noticed that my husband had the other 2 pieces of meat; and the last of the potatoes(there was quite a bit left also) on his plate, left none for me.  I didn't say anything but he does this all the time and doesn't think anything of it.  So I eneded up eating just the salad.  What would you have done would you have said anything or what?  Just wondering.

  • I would make my plate and stick it in the oven, then make the kids' plates and then let hubby know it was ready. Honestly, if that happened in my home my husband would find a plate broken over his head. What a jerk!

  • I would have been very upset and I definitely would have said something!  Actually I would have went and took my portion off his plate right then and sat down with a smile!

  • Oh hell yea I would have said something.. I would have said SERIOUSLY, YOU SEE ME WITH NO PLATE YET YOU STILL TAKE ALL THE FOOD AGAIN??? HOW %^&*$ RUDE!! I would make plates including yours but leave yours for last in the kitchen, this way it is made and i would hope he wouldn't take food off your plate for seconds! Good luck and SPEAK UP!

  • Say something! Communication is the most important part of a relationship. My husband has done the same thing and I believe it was the way he was raised. Men got served first. It is kinda sad and makes me wonder if he ever went hungry and that is why he seems

  • "Um, excuse me, where's my food? Why the h*** is MY food on YOUR plate?! What did you expect me to eat, huh?" And next time I'd make my own plate first, even before the kids', that way I'd know I was getting food.

  • There are a few things that you can do, since I don't know the dynamics in your home, I wouldn't say that you should do anything that will cause strife in your marriage.
    Talk to him about this.
    Make a larger dinner.
    After dinner is ready, make up your plate first.
    I don't know how long you 2 have been married but watch how much he eats.
    It seems like you're a very good cook! You can say, "thanks for the compliment, I'd love to be a judge too ;)
    His actions are inconsiderate! But you 2 don't have to fight about it. Hope this helps!

  • Ya your hubby needs to know that you too have to eat; he has to be concerned about it. Have a polite talk about this with him....

  • I probably would have made some smart ass remarks like "Either you think i'm fat and all i need is salad? Or you are such an inconsiderate ass, that you don't think i need to eat the dinner that i prepared?" And honestly, i would have then not eaten at all, just to be spiteful and left the room.
