Would you stop to eat something

if you were about fifteen miles from home, or would you wait until you got home to eat. Personally, I would wait until I got home, rather than spend money when I have food at home. My husband on the other hand acts like a baby when he gets hungry, and he would probably stop to get something to eat instead of dealing with the hunger for a little while. What would you do, satisfy that craving right away or wait until you got home?

I depends. I used to go through the drive through and eat in the car. Then when I got home I could hop straight into bed. In the morning I frequently went through a drive through again on the way to work and ate in the car again. I was working long hours and didn't want to waste the 10 minute to microwave and eat something. That 10 minutes came off my precious sleep time.

I can understand what you are saying, yours is a convenience issue, which is certainly understandable. My husband does not have to go anywhere but to his chair to watch TV. Now, if it was late at night and I had to get up early the next day, yes, I would say let's stop, but if there is no urgency, I can not see why we can not wait until we get home. thanks for responding.

It seems you husband is a typical male. Baby. Almost all men are just overgrown children when it comes to being fed. Not much you can do other than tell him that you will feed him as soon as you get home.

I would go on home as long as it wasn't too late to cook something...

I'd wait until I get home, I can have exactly what I want when I get home and it won't cost me anymore money. I don't usually mind what time of day it is that I eat either as I work evenings.

As long as I have something at home that will make a meal, I would rather wait until I get home.

It all depends on how bad I am craving some junky fast food. Normally I would just go home, but if I am really craving something I will stop. Well, go through the drive through anyway.

With my husband, it is not craving, he just wants to eat. He acts like such a baby when he is hungry. Today coming home from church, we stopped at the ATM. He was so hungry and cranky, he was fighting with the machine because it could not read his card, instead of taking his time and reading the instructions. I could only shake my head, and tell him that there are people hungrier than him and to stop acting like a baby and deal with it until we get home.

Hi. Normally I wait until I get home whenever I am hungry knowing the fact that I have food at home. Besides it saves a lot of money and I can use that money to buy grocery for the next time. Same as your husband my boyfriend too eat to a restaurant or fastfood chain whenever he gets hungry and it will take some time before he gets home. I always pinpoint to him the advantage of eating at home rather than dining out and recently he is trying to change his bad habit. It's a good thing since he can add more his monthly bank savings which both of us are really doing. Though there were days that we treat ourselves by indulging our cravings to eat to our fave restaurants.

I can understand if you were going out to eat, that is not a problem, but not to be able to wait twenty minutes is ridiculous. My husband gets so cranky when he is hungry, I yelled at him this afternoon when we were coming home from church, because of that. I told him to DEAL WITH IT, that there are people in the world who have not eaten for days.

I'd wait. If your husband has a particular problem, you should see if he has a problem with his blood sugar. Borderline diabetes or hypoglycemia could be considered and provide a reason for his desire to eat other than acting like a baby. He might really just be a bit of a spoiled brat used to getting what he wants when he wants it, of course, but I try not to judge others for their foibles.
