Do you have this problem?

no matter what you make for dinner someone always makes rude comments on it? and whats worse it's your roommate who is staying for free that does all the complaining?

  • OHOHOHOH,,, that would be a huge problem for me. You have a houseguest that you are kind enough to allow to live with you for nothing and they complain about the FREE FOOD you are also giving them. Nah, wouldn't work for me.

  • No, but I would be telling that roommate not to bite the hand that feeds them.

  • Don't cook for the complainer. Bet he really complains then!

  • Around year 5 or 6 with my LP, he complained for the last time. He used to tell me every meal "This would be better with/without..." in addition to picking through it as if to inspect it for edibility. When I had enough of his mouth, I picked up his plate, dumped it in the trash, and sat back down to my meal. I'm not a bad cook, he is old enough to cook himself a meal if he finds mine to be unacceptable, but don't insult my food.

    Now, 8 or 9 years later, he will pick on me if I REALLY botch something, but that's only a couple times a year, not every meal.

  • Years ago. DH's friend came and stayed with us while he was looking for his own place he would say stuff like that. I turned around one day and said you don't like it you can start cooking your own food. He shut up quick. Sadly he compliments my cooking more than his wife's cooking.

  • No, if you don't like what I make you can find your own dinner. Your unappreciative house guest would find himself without a place to stay with that attitude in my home.
