A man recently asked for some advice after a friendly neighborhood pool party descended into a shouting match, and he was worried it was partly his fault. Here’s what happened.

A man and his wife decided to invite all their neighbors over for a fun pool party since the weather was good and they hadn’t all gotten together for awhile.

The couple lived in a cul-de-sac, so it was a close-knit community. As lots of the neighbors had kids of about the same age, they’d all become friends over the years.

To avoid a lot of food preparation, the man and his wife decided to make the event into a potluck. Every neighbor would bring one or two dishes, which they’d all share.

They Made Tikka Masala

This was an idea that everyone loved, especially because they knew that one couple, Pooja and Jim, would bring their delicious tikka masala.

Not only did Pooja and Jim bring their famous dish, but they also brought homemade samosas, which one particular neighbor, Lindsey, adored.

The man said, “When it came to the samosas, she and her husband really went to town.” He actually thought it was quite rude behavior because they filled their plates quickly, and not everyone got to try the samosas in the end.

She Ate Loads

Once the appetizers were done, the main courses were served. The tikka masala was unveiled, and Lindsey immediately heaped a big spoonful for herself, eating it quickly.

The man said, “Five minutes later, she says she and her family have to go home and that she’s going to take some food back with her.”

The man couldn’t see anything wrong with Lindsey taking a little food back with her, but when she grabbed the entire tray of chicken tikka masala while people were still serving themselves from it, he decided to step in.

The man told Lindsey that people were still eating and that he’d get his son to bring over any leftovers..

At this point, Lindsey got mad and told the man he was being unfair. After all, she’d brought over a load of muffins, so it was only fair that she should get to take the tikka masala home.

She Accused Him of Bullying

Lindsey went on to say that the man was being a bully and was only being mean because she was overweight.

The man’s wife didn’t want Lindsey to get the wrong impression, so she quickly stepped in and told her it had nothing to do with her weight; she just wanted to make sure everyone got enough food. But rather than appeasing Lindsey, the words made her burst into tears. She ran home, leaving everyone bewildered.

Was He Wrong?

Was the man wrong to stop Lindsey from taking the food before everyone had eaten enough, or was he just being fair to the rest of his guests?

The Internet Responded

One person said, “Fat or thin, you should not take food from a potluck until long after everyone has finished eating.”

Another commented, “You were just being fair, and she didn’t like getting caught being so greedy.”
