So I made a nice dinner for my husband and I tonight, its all ready to go it just needs to bake in the oven. We usually eat after our baby goes to bed. I kept asking him when I could put it in the oven but he's too busy with his friends that are over. I have to get up early so I am going to bed. I don't know why I bothered making dinner...no one is going to be eating it tonight.

My husband did almost the same thing. One time I woke up real early to cook him his favorite breakfast of bacon, eggs over easy, hash brown and some fried rice and egg rolls for his packed lunch. Well, I keep on waking him up half an hour earlier so he can eat his breakfast. He did go down with his laptop and instead of eating properly he just drank his OJ and keep on tapping on that stupid laptop. And when his friend's car was here (they take turns driving), he was in a hurry that he forgot the lunch I made for him. I was so upset that I didn't bother cooking dinner. I did my day's work and chores then took a shower and changed to my jammies early so by 6:30 PM I am ready for bed when he arrives. He knew I was so upset and for a week I didn't cook for him. He was sorry and he tried to bribe me with a new purse. I forgave him but I do not get up so early for his breakfast, just early enough to pack him his lunch.

Hello Raine! :) You must be really upset with him huh? Well, that's the problem women really have to face. Specially if the husband or partner or just a family member who you prepare food with don't show appreciation on your efforts. It's really tiring to do such preparations and then what will they do? It isn't funny at all. Yeah, who will be happy to prepare food when you are preparing for nothing... Really bad!

Hey annavi, yeah I was so upset that time. But my husband promised he won't do it again. He even gave me a new purse so I wouldn't be mad anymore.

My ex husband used to do the same to me. After a few times, I ate alone. And he ate cold dinners. After 3-4 times of that. he decided he better get rid of the friends and eat his meals hot.

That's the problem with guys. of course, they have work and wife don't so, it would be those friends who they spend times the most and then poor wife she has to eat alone because if she waits longer, the food isn't that good anymore. The reason why we cook and prepare food is to serve it hot, but then what will we do, just let it get cold before we eat it or wait for someone to eat it? Poor food! It should be a gift from God which we have to be thankful but then it looks like we can fight over with it...really bad thing to happen...

Why would he have to stop with his friends to say yes about putting the food in the oven. could you not have done that on your own so he could have had food after his friends left. of for that matter a dinner with friends would have been nice as well. I am not understanding something here.

The food would have been cold by the time he would eat so I didn't bother putting it in.

I don't know how late it is where you are, but it's after ten pm here. It's way too late for guests who don't intend to stay the night to still be there. I hate you'll be going to bed hungry. Hopefully he won't make a habit of this.

He doesn't thankfully make a habit if it but I was still pissed. He apologized and went and got us McDonald's.

Hello keamk! :) That would be so sad to feel like you are preparing for something and it can be worth a while but then it seems like there's no one to appreciate your efforts on making such preparations. I know the feeling cause I somehow feel it most of the time. Yeah, physically, you have someone with you in the house, but then you can't feel them specially when you are preparing food. They just wait for the food to be cooked and then if you call them, they won't come at once. It takes a lot of calling before they come. It just doesn't feel good you know. It feels like you are a maid in the house even if you are not and they just wait or just eat when they want. Plus, the fact that there are times there's no food, they would be mad why is there no food for them...

Oh he has friends over and youhaven't made them dinner? maybe that is why he or they have probably eaten something already with his friends. and if you are hungry you could have put it in the oven and then you could it eat and just tell your husband you will eat first and will not wait for him anymore and he can just get it if he wants to eat after he is done.

kemak I think that kind of guests should be kicked out and you and your husband sit down to a Home cook ed meal.shame on hubby, he is not very sensitive if prefers his buddies over the meal you made specially for him and he knows you have to get up early.Shame you feel you have to go to sleep hungry.Sham on hubby.
