THANKSGIVING ARGUMENTS (PART THREE)
"He was explicitly told not to feed him people food and then did it in secret like a child... and even got caught like a child? I have never seen another adult do something like that," she wrote.
"Then, back at the table for dessert, he loaded his plate with 2-3x as many sweets as everyone else took on the first time they were being passed around. Ninety percent of what he ate was dessert.
"When clean-up time came, everyone including my elderly grandparents volunteered to help except him. I had to ask him. He did a half-a**ed job, and kept 'inspecting' the turkey carcass, pulling bones apart and making a mess of it.
"My dad (irritated from the earlier thing with the dog I now know) snapped at him to either put it in the fridge or leave it alone."
Scolded, the boyfriend then went back to the dining room to eat more pie while everyone else cleaned.
"Overall I am majorly embarrassed by his behavior. I feel like the mom of a little kid, except a kid wouldn't know better. I shouldn't have to correct the behavior of a grown man right??
"And before you ask if he was just anxious about meeting my family or something - he's met them all before several times. Even if he hadn't that wouldn't explain it because he's done similar things before in front of his own family and when it's just the two of us.
"I am tired of the weird way he acts around food. Tired of worrying if he's going to get weird looks from other people. As someone in my 20's I shouldn't be getting 'reports' from my parents that my boyfriend did something rude and immature.
"They questioned if I felt like he was on my same level. I feel like I generally am happy with him, and then things like this pop-up and I remember he has this other side that really turns me off. He's older than me but I feel like I'm the older one sometimes."
Following her post, many took to the comment section to slam him for his behavior as well.
One person wrote: "You've been with him nine months, he's demonstrated that despite the fact that he's pushing 30 he's a giant man-child, and the dog feeding was a huge f**k you to your parents. Why are you with this person?"
A second one commented: "Don't let any of your partners disrespect your parents, and in turn don't ever disrespect your partner's parents, even when your partner disrespects them."
And a third one questioned: "Yeah. I mean if all the non-food stuff is AMAZING maybe you could talk to him about it? You should talk to him about it anyway. But if the other stuff isn't great, why put up with the weird food stuff?"
What do you think? Would you tolerate this behavior?
