Her Boyfriend Ordered an $80 Takeaway Because She Didn’t Make Him Dinner but She Refuses to Pay for The Meal

A woman asked Reddit if she was in the wrong for not wanting to pay for her lazy boyfriend’s takeout. He insisted that it was her job to feed him. Here’s what she had to say.

She Had Some Bad News

A few weeks ago, her company announced they would be laying people off. The woman was in the office on the day of the announcement, and it was awful. 

“Person after person was brought into HR, told they were being let go and escorted out of the office,” she said.

After they were done, management called a second meeting and told those left in the building that there were no more layoffs. A lot of the woman’s colleagues were let go, so it was a sad day.

The woman texted her partner to tell him about the announcements as they were happening. First, she texted him about the layoffs, and afterward, she texted to tell him she was ‘safe.’

Her team had decided to stay after work to figure out how to distribute the remaining work so their projects wouldn’t fail. 

They worked through all the projects and didn’t leave until 9 p.m.

“Starting at about 8, my partner began texting me asking when I was getting home, what was for dinner, and that they were hungry,” she said. 

The woman replied that she didn’t know when she would get to leave but that she would make dinner when she got home. He could make dinner himself or have a snack and wait if he was hungry.

She got home at almost 10 p.m., and as she walked in, she found empty takeout containers in the kitchen. She asked her partner if he had ordered takeout, which he had, and if he had ordered her some, which he hadn’t. 

“It was late, and I was emotionally exhausted, so I didn’t eat and went straight to bed,” she explained. 

Then, a Strange Thing Happened

The following weekend the woman found a Splitwise for the takeout meal allocated 100% to her. 

Since they live together, they share all expenses on Splitwise, like rent, bills, groceries, and takeout, with a 70 to 30 split. 

“Individual expenses, like if one of us buys lunch at work, do not go in Splitwise,” the woman said.

She Thought It Was Just a Mistake

So she deleted it, but the next day her partner got angry at her for not paying for his takeout. 

He Felt She Should Have Provided Dinner for Him

According to him, it was her job to make dinner, and because she stayed out late, she didn’t have dinner ready in a reasonable time. So he told her he had no choice but to order a takeout since he was hungry. 

Her partner feels that making dinner is her responsibility, so she should pay for the takeout. 

Was This True? Should She Cough up The Money?

The woman asked the Reddit community if she was in the wrong and if she should pay for her partner’s takeout meal. 

She says there was food in the house that he could have eaten, but instead, her partner ordered an $80 takeout for himself. He also didn’t order anything for her, so she doesn’t feel she has to pay.

Her partner is still angry that she won’t pay and tells her she basically forced him to order it because she didn’t make dinner for him.

People Had a Lot to Say

One user said, ‘Why are you with this person? A compassionate partner would have made you dinner since you had such a difficult day, not whine and moan because you didn’t get home at your normal time to cook for them.” 

Another said, “Why ON EARTH are you with this selfish narcissist ??? Your partner should have had dinner waiting for YOU because of the day you had. My god, this is mindblowing to me.”
