Redditor Asks If She's The A-Hole For Teaching Fiancé's Family A Stinky Lesson

Warning: discussions of poop ahead.

Food is an undeniable foundation of social relations. In every part of the world, friends and families bond through the sacred tradition of sharing a meal. Who doesn't love food? But social gatherings that revolve around eating aren't a walk in the park for everyone. There are millions of people who suffer from dietary restrictions, which often makes the social aspects of eating pretty awkward. And unfortunately, food allergies aren't taken seriously by everyone. Redditor u/IBgueSt is one of the poor souls out there who lives with a number of food intolerances, which both deny her the pleasure of eating a number of delicious foods, and make her subject to frequent awkward conversations about her gut problems. In this Reddit thread, u/IBgueSt recounts how one day, she'd had enough of her fiancé's family not taking her condition seriously. Rather than walk away from a family meal at the risk of seeming uptight, she instead indulged in food she knew she wouldn't be able to stomach and ended up teaching her future in-laws a smelly lesson in dietary allergies. Was she petty or in the right? The thread of replies that followed are full of hot takes.

Guy Shows Anime Tattoos At Work BBQ, Girlfriend’s Boss Hates Weebs

Choosing to get tattooed can be a very personal decision. When your body art means something to you, it doesn't matter what anybody else thinks about it. You go for that full back piece of Samsung Girl, buddy.

However, there can be a time and a place when it comes to showing off your ink. This is especially true if it causes problems with loved ones, as one frustrating AITA has recently shown. In the post, Redditor u/GearMonx goes explains an argument between him and his girlfriend. He has several anime-related tattoos which she asked him to cover when coming to her workplace summer barbecue. 

Despite her requesting he hide his ink in the semi-professional setting, his sweater makes him warm and he changes into a sleeveless shirt. This draws unwanted attention from her manager and almost universal disapproval from fellow Redditors. Moral of the story: guys who compare themselves to Vegeta might not be the greatest people.

Woman Leaves Husband In Grocery Store For Literally Acting Like A Toddler

We all get comfortable in relationships and say some cringe things in jest, but some people take it wayyy too far. A distraught woman asked Reddit if she was the asshole for leaving her husband in the grocery store after he quite literally acted like a toddler and demanded ice cream in a baby voice. OP u/smallslicedskin further explained that this wasn't an isolated incident. Apparently, her husband had been incessantly using meme-speak like 'doggo,' 'pupper,' 'chicky nuggies,' and 'birb' for months. The bizarre affectation that had been driving OP bonkers caused her to finally snap in the grocery store and subsequently turn to Reddit for help. Scroll down for her story and some of the best responses in the thread

Woman Asks Reddit If She's A Jerk For 'Emasculating' Fiancé In Front Of His Family

It's not a great sign if a marriage is a big headache before it's even official. Redditor u/AITAemasculatormaybe asked the internet whether or not she was the a-hole for standing up for herself at a family dinner after her future mother-in-law called her a gold digger. Many indignant redditors in the thread agreed that OP was totally in the right. Hopefully this couple figured out how to set boundaries with the presumptuous in-laws.

'Apology Dinners' Are The Latest Concept To Perplex The Internet

In my family, apologies take time, and are delivered begrudgingly at best. They usually come in the form of a text, or an awkward exchange in a car or a doorway. These apologies end abruptly, with the issue swept under the rug for the victim to simply get over at their own pace. Normal, right? Well, today much of the internet learned about another form of apology. Instead of a simple back and forth with a loved one, apparently there are people who host "Apology Dinners." The concept was the talk of Twitter yesterday, for good reason.

In a now-deleted Reddit post, a user asked the r/AITA (Am I The Asshole) subreddit if they were in the wrong for organizing their sister's "apology dinner." The post (which was inspired by a much sadder apology dinner thread) goes through great effort to explain the concept of a potluck dinner, but carries on to the family drama without pausing to demystify this bizarre custom. After it was shared on Twitter,the tale went viral, inspiring many confused, surprised and critical reactions. 

While we're not sure we've ever met anyone who engaged in this kind of ritual, OP explains in a comment that they are from Romania, and that it's a common occurrence in their culture. Being that we've never been to Romania, we'll have to take their word for it. We'll also have to take some inspiration from the story to raise the bar for everyone who has ever wronged us. Next time I hear my roommate having sex, I'll expect him to feed me a lobster dinner. It's only fair.
