Today, I treated my boyfriend to an expensive dinner using the last of my paycheck. I had to excuse myself to the bathroom a few minutes in. I came back to find my plate empty. His excuse was, "I didn't want the food to get cold." FML

Walk out and leave him stranded with the bill. Then when he freaks out about it say "Oh sorry I didn't want the car to get cold."


Get revenge and don't cook for him ever again.

The boyfriend sounds pretty inconsiderate so she should know that and not buy him dinner. And I don't see your need to insult someone over the Internet but if that floats your boat then go ahead

stick a **** in it, 20. piss poor comeback from a piss poor piece of trolling sexist trash. say that five times fast then stop commenting for your own sake

I don't see anything wrong with a girl buying dinner for her and her boyfriend a few times. The boyfriend probably pays for her stuff all the time!

Women's lib. They're as good as men are, they can treat now and then. Men have just as many bills as women, yet they expect us to pay for everything... LoL. STFU

Why does 2 have so many downvotes? The poster is right. If the boyfriend is such an asshole that he does things like this, she should've known earlier and not treat him. It has nothing to do with being sexist.

What's wrong with treating your boyfriend to an expensive dinner? I never expect mine to pay every time. I'm happy to pay for our meals because I care about him. I look forward to treating him to things like birthday dinners and I the only one here..haha

LOL. I think the whole point is that he ate her food, with a small point being that she used what was left of her money to take him to dinner. Yes, it was fuc*** up he ate her food and yea, it sucks she used all of her paycheck to feed BOTH of them, but, has anyone else noticed the key word in OP's FML "... a few minutes in..."? She had to take a shit or something. I would've sent him a text or something apologizing for why I was taking so long... or maybe I'm the only one who takes their phone to the shitter. Haha!

I think out of this I find two things, one the OP's boyfriend is a glutton and highly inconsiderate with no manners. Two shrike is a left wing, pedantic, argumentative idiot who has nothing better to do than make stupid comments without summing up all the possibilities.

You guys don't understand. Shrike was trying to say that a woman treating a man to dinner is not a problem. Women make just as much if not more money than their male counterparts, so they can afford to treat a man to things. Think before you comment.

92, That portion of the story was referring to the time passed since they arrived, or started eating, not the time it took OP to come out of the bathroom. And yes, there's nothing more romantic than receiving a text from your ******** girlfriend while you're eating.

105 - Thanks, I thought the point was obvious but some of these people clearly think subtlety means hitting someone in the face with a brick. 98 - You're a moron. What the hell has left or right wing politics got to do with attacking sexism?! Get back under your bridge, troll.

Yes but considering he explained himself pretty well, then you Internet assaulted him for no reason other than to feel cool. You are the idiot. She was kind for buying the meal. He was a douchebag for eating hers. She shouldn't have taken him out to eat if he's that much of an ass. Make him pay if he ate it all.

Well obviously he was hungry, and she didn't buy him enough food!

You should always treat God with respect. Get it? Because it said Him and not him, and biblically when you refer to - ah **** it, nevermind.

155..."His...sorry to correct you. I usually never correct comments.

29, stop being sexist. You should have said **** or mariglade.

#110: I still think she was gone too long. Unless OP's boyfriend is a giant who can eat a Burger in one bite (metaphorically speaking), he had more than enough time to consume her meal. . . now as for the ******** text, I guess I'm more light-hearted because I thought that shit was funny. And it's not like she has to say "hey, tkn a shit. BRB". She could've said "lines long. only one toilet working" or something! LOL

Never cook for him again then, or never eat what he cooks,

Nah... He was just being nice. Food ain't good cold!

Haha nah pizza is better warm. Ever got the roof of your mouth burned ugh I dislike that.

RebekahBrooke 9

ughhh yes. it hurts. but I love cold pizza!

cold pizza with cheese, and any vegetables on it ie onions, peppers etc are fine as long as its eaten within 24hrs. But anything with meat on it ie beef, and certain fish, can cause you to be ill. Its the bacteria that multiples and grows quickly on the pizza once it starts cooling off that can cause diarrhea and tummy upsets. This does not effect everyone, so its a risk you take.

MissBunnyWillEat 11

Grrrrr... This wasn't meant for here. Dammit.

I cook pizza with the intention of putting it in the fridge to get cold. Then drizzle some ranch and Parmesan cheese on it and we're good to go!

Ever tried it with peanut butter

Are you kidding? I smoked a shitload of weed when I was younger. Of course I tried it with peanut butter!

Why thank you all for sharing with Fml your pizza fetishes...

^^^^ No kidding, I'm glad I'm content to just order Dominoes and get a normal Pepperoni and Sausage.

Did you not read the second sentence? Weed makes shitty music sound good, and makes good food taste even better.

Hay now, almost all food is gross cold (outher then pizza).

Was it those restaurants with the small portion foods that goes for tons? If so you're better off eating at places such as Panera Bread.

8, sometimes it's about the quality of the food. I'm sure you can get an enormous amount of food at McDonald's or your local discount foods store, but it won't hold a candle to some of that exceptional deliciousness that goes for tons.

Panera bread is not where you go on a date...

saIty 17

But it's not even enough to fill someone up, and they'll charge a Donald Trump amount for it. Doesn't seem like a very swell deal.

The point of super expensive restaurants with delicious food is to taste and enjoy top of the line foods, not stuff yourself like a pig... You want good prices and fill you up food go to a local mom n pops diner....

ShroomsOnAcid 16

81 is right, and also it does fill some people up, depending on how much they usually eat and what they're having. For example, I usually cannot finish a meal at panera bread or McDonald's without feeling like my stomach will explode, mainly because of the sheer volume of the food. On the other hand, even the largest fries will not fill me up the way a way smaller looking portion of salmon will. Another trade off is that what the food won't cost you in money, it will cost you in health. You think you're saving some dough by getting the most volume/calories per dollar, but that strategy only works to your benefit if you've barely got enough money to afford a meal, and it might as well be your last. There's a reason the poorest people in America are also the fattest.

zowieandzander77 1

Exactly! For me a nice dinner is about perfectly cooked fresh amazing ingredients not the dollar menu. If you took the time to enjoy your food you might be surprised that a smaller portion is actually enough food. I'm sorry but no one needs to eat 2 hamburger parties covered in special sauce and pound of greasy fries.

I'm glad to see more people realizing that, 99. Many assume that you can't eat sensibly and love food at the same time. But to me, it means enjoying and savoring every bite, not swallowing up my whole meal the way I would a pill. Sometimes I wonder if Shaggy and Skooby really love those giant sandwiches so much if they just shoot them straight down their throat without taking the time to actually taste them.

Why would you date someone so inconsiderate
