The web has slammed a female for feeding her dog the leftovers from the dinner her boyfriend designed for her.
Published on Reddit‘s r/AmITheAhole forum, a female beneath the anonymous username u/throwawayscraps shared her story to get feedback from the “AITA” community. The viral post has over 10,000 upvotes and 4,000 comments.
The initial poster (OP) began her story by explaining that she’s been dating her boyfriend, “Jay,” for four months and is quite happy in the partnership. Recently, Jay planned a whole day with the OP because they continued a nature walk and returned to his house where he made dinner on her behalf. She was ecstatic concerning the date since it will be her first-time at his house. Given that they were taking a walk, she brought her dog, “Shelby,” with her, as Jay was okay with it.
For supper, he made a roast plus some vegetables. Once dinner was finished, she made a decision to take a few of the leftover roast and vegetables and made a plate on her behalf dog. When Jay asked what she was doing with the leftover food, she explained that she would feed it to Shelby.
The OP wrote, “Jay said something similar to ‘Well that isn’t dog food.’ Jay knows I mainly feed Shelby a raw diet. I opened the entranceway to place the plate down for Shelby and Jay got up, took the plate from her, visited your kitchen and returned with it wrapped up in tinfoil and explained to leave. His excuse was he made dinner for me personally and him, not me, him, and my dog and that I should’ve asked before I helped myself since he would’ve used his leftovers.
“I did so leave however, not before telling him he made that meal for all of us therefore i could do with a few of it when i pleased and he knew damn well how I feed Shelby. I tried speaking with my friend about any of it later that night but she said Jay was to be upset but this friend hasn’t really approved of how I treat my very own dog therefore i feel just like she was probably a little biased and the incorrect person to ask,” she concluded.
Within an edit, the OP confirmed that she doesn’t eat out often and when she does, she only feeds Shelby food that’s safe on her behalf to take. Typical meals on her behalf dog includes brown rice, raw vegetables, ground chicken hearts and beef livers. The meat is boiled enough to kill the bacteria which can be bad for dogs. She confirmed that the meat was prepared safely for Shelby to consume and got more fresh vegetables.

You took a big hunk of this special meal and gave it to your pet. Not just that, nevertheless, you did so knowing it could upset your (now ex) boyfriend.
“You ought to have brought dog food to feed Shelby. You ought not have fed Shelby with people food, and you ought to particularly not need fed your pet with the special dinner your (now ex) boyfriend prepared for you personally. It really is wholly irrelevant that ‘Jay knows [you] mainly feed Shelby a raw diet,'” the commenter continued.
“[You’re the ahole]. You didn’t feed your pet table scraps. You took 1 / 2 of the leftover meat from the meal to feed to your pet,” u/4games1 commented.
“[You’re the ahole] It could took 5 seconds to ask. 25 % of a roast isn’t table scraps, you’re also the [ahole] for misrepresenting the problem. Because he knows the bonkers way you decide to feed your pet doesn’t mean he really wants to spend his wages and effort to feed him exactly the same way,” u/thoracicbunk explained.

Roast is expensive and for him to possess bought and prepared this meal so that you can enjoy and you merely put probably $10 of meat on a plate for your dog without asking is ridiculous,” u/HauntingAccomplice wrote.
