She Refused to Cook a Gluten-Free Meal for Her Uncle’s Friend and So They Stormed out – Was She Wrong?

A woman recently got scolded for not cooking a gluten-free meal at a family gathering. She didn’t know that the person needing it was coming! Here’s what she had to say.

The family situation

The 34-year-old woman and her husband both have big families.

Often, she will host get-togethers for the family, where people can reconnect, catch up on things and have a drink as they generally hang out together.

The woman is in charge of cooking dinner for everyone, and sometimes she receives help from her close family.

“There were two different times at a get-together where I didn’t recognize someone there, and my husband wouldn’t either. Even my mom or aunt didn’t know who they were,” she said.

“I found out it was just a distant cousin of mine. So seeing people, I don’t recognize or know who they are is a reoccurring thing I just had to get used to with two of our families this big.”

A new person came along

Recently, the woman hosted a smaller get-together, but she saw a woman she did not recognize. She didn’t mind but asked her husband who she was, to which he replied that she was a friend of his uncle.

After she finished cooking with her aunt, everyone came inside to set up their plates.

The family friend approached the woman and asked if she had made any gluten-free dishes.

The woman apologized, as she hadn’t.

The uncle’s friend then asked her to make something, but having spent nearly the whole day cooking, the woman told the friend that she just wanted to sit down and relax.

And then the trouble started

The uncle’s friend got very defensive, saying that she couldn’t be the only person there with a gluten intolerance. She couldn’t believe that there were no dishes suitable for her.

She wasn’t told in advance

“I told her that there is no one that I know of in my family that has a gluten intolerance, and if I knew she was going to be here, I would have made something for her,” she said.

The woman was furious

The family friend shouted at the woman, saying she had ruined the day for her and would never come back to visit!

The uncle told her to just do it

The woman’s husband’s uncle told the woman that she should just make her something to eat and get it over and done with. But the woman refused.

She said they could eat somewhere else

She said that his friend could eat somewhere else, and besides, since she usually didn’t cook gluten-free meals, she didn’t want to make someone ill by mistake.

Also, she was tired and done with cooking for the night.

Both the family friend and her husband’s uncle ended up leaving, and surprisingly, the woman’s husband got angry with her.

Her husband accused her of ruining the dinner

He said that she had essentially ruined the dinner for them, that she could have just made something without gluten, and that his uncle would, most likely, not come back to their house.

Was she really wrong?

The woman couldn’t believe her ears and therefore asked if she really was in the wrong.

None of them thought so.

“If you’re not able to eat something, you should have informed the person cooking beforehand,” said one commenter. “The entitlement!”

“If your husband’s uncle knew he was bringing a friend with a gluten intolerance, it was the uncle’s job to communicate that,” said another person.
