A man recently shared a story online about how his brother and his pregnant girlfriend came for dinner. The minute they got there, she complained about the smell of a steak he was cooking. Then she threw it away when his back was turned.
The man wrote, “I live alone. My brother and his girlfriend still live with our parents, as they can’t afford a place of their own. His girlfriend is currently five months pregnant.”
“My brother asked to bring his girlfriend for dinner in order to catch up, and I said sure, why not?” he added. “However, the moment she entered my house, she started complaining about the smell of the steak I was making. She said the smell alone made her nauseous and she couldn’t eat it.”
The man tried to accommodate his brother’s girlfriend—if she didn’t want steak, he would find her something else. But she knocked back his suggestions.
His brother’s girlfriend wanted Chinese food. She knew a place at a nearby mall. She sent the man’s brother on an errand to pick up a dish she would eat.
The man thought that would be the end of the matter. But he was wrong. When he returned from the bathroom, he found his brother’s girlfriend throwing his unfinished steak in the bin.
The man was outraged. He asked the girlfriend what she was doing. She said the smell was so strong that she thought she would get sick.
She told the man that she had to get rid of it. Then she pulled some cheap perfume from her bag and started spraying it everywhere.
The man was furious. He ordered the girlfriend out of his kitchen and into the living room. When his brother returned with the Chinese food, he kicked them both out.
His brother begged the man to let them back in. He said that the man could make some food for them, and she would eat the Chinese food.
The girlfriend was crying. However, their protests were brushed aside. He was upset that she’d thrown out his steak, and he held firm on making them leave.
The man’s parents disapproved of his actions. They scolded him for upsetting a pregnant woman and causing her distress.
They explained that she was suffering from hormonal issues and that yelling at her and kicking her out was too harsh. His parents even blamed him for causing problems with the young couple because she made her brother sleep on the couch later that night.
Was he right to kick them out?
The man wasn’t sure if he’d done the right thing. He felt disrespected when the girlfriend threw out his steak. However, he understood his parent’s side of the argument. He wrote on an internet forum to ask for a second opinion.
The internet responded
One poster said, “If they’re old enough to be parents, they’re old enough to act like adults.”
While another replied, “I can completely understand the smell being too much for her; I was like that when I was pregnant. But the solution was for her to leave. Throwing away someone else’s food is way over the line.”
