Would This Bother You?

Me, my son and my sister went out to eat.

My son was eating burritos and he was not eating them the way you would normally eat them, like from the ends.

Instead he eats them from the sides.

Idgaf, cause he's eating, ya know? Eat it whatever way you want long as you eat it.

My sister said if it was her kid it would bother her and she would instruct them to eat it the "right" way. She has 5 grown kids btw so it's not like she isn't experienced.

I love my sister and she wasn't trying to be a bitch, she just has some weird hangups about stuff like that. We all have weird hangups.

Would it have bothered you? The burrito was just a cheese and chicken burrito so it wasn't making a mess. My son is 4 and has ASD so food is not something I want to make a battle, if he eats it who cares what way it's consumed as long as he eats it lol.

 As long as he wasn't being a slob and making an ungodly mess, Nope it wouldn't bother me at all.

No it would not bother me how he eats it. Your sister needs to learn its OK to "color outside the lines"

I would show my ds how to eat it the right way. I've had to do that before, lol. But if he just really liked eating it that way I wouldn't care... unless all the insides are spilling out everywhere. Because then what's the point of a burrito? Lol

It would bother me. Why does it matter how somebody eats? There is no right way to eat food. Sometimes I've jokingly pointed out to my friends or my DH if they eat something differently, but they know I'm joking. I wouldn't try to instruct them or force them to eat something in a different way than they were used to.

It would bother me so I wouldn't watch him eat it. Ds does things like that, he'll take a sandwich and start eating the top of it instead of the sides like a normal person. I simply don't sit there and watch him eat.

That too, because a burrito is a burrito and they are kind of messy in general, but he actually doesn't make a huge mess surprisingly. He's actual very anal about being clean and not being messy. I was the same way when I was young.

Who cares how he ate it, as long as it got eaten.

She would hate me then because I unwrap my burritos and eat the inside and leave the tortilla.
