Today, I offered to help my mother-in-law boil noodles for some noodle soup. She loudly said, "You know how!?" I'm a chef. FML

Why would anyone need help boiling noodles? She might have thought you were insulting her.

Maybe she’s had your cooking and doesn’t have confidence in your noodle-boiling technique.

It’s not unusual to offer help with the easy tasks in the kitchen when dining with family. You don’t want to mess with recipes, but things like boiling noodles, hopping veggies, heating bread, usually don’t come off as an insult. More of an offer to help out.

Maybe she’s had your cooking and doesn’t have confidence in your noodle-boiling technique.

In the end, it's her kitchen. she's the chef

who needs help boiling noodles?

Your reply should have been "I can make them from scratch, can you?"

How in hell do you help someone boil noodles? That's absurd.
