A woman complaining her boyfriend didn’t order her pizza at 3am has been slammed online, after taking to the internet to express her fury.
A Mumsnet post from PinkStarAtNight, believed to be based in the UK, has garnered nearly 300 responses since it was posted in the early hours of Monday morning as she lay in bed ‘hungry and annoyed’.
Maybe her boyfriend did her a favor by ignoring her request for pizza, as the British Heart Foundation warns that eating at irregular times could impact our health.
“Recent research suggests that eating most of our calories in the evening – the most common pattern in the UK – may be linked to obesity,” they say.
As noted, this is a common problem, as the site continues: “You’re not the only one eating late. As our lifestyles have become more demanding and irregular, so have our eating habits.
“Compared to 30 years ago, more meals are skipped, or eaten on the go, and later in the day.
“There is evidence that this is linked to risk factors for heart and circulatory disease, such as increased weight and blood pressure. »
And eating at irregular times can also lead to poor nutritional choices.
“When we eat irregularly or skip meals, we also tend to make poor food choices because we are so hungry that we choose less healthy foods or larger portions,” explains the British Heart Foundation.
While it’s unclear what type of pizza the woman was eyeing, a medium cheese and tomato pizza with a classic crust from Domino’s, a popular pizza chain in the UK, contains over 1,740 calories.
The restaurant revealed that there were 580 calories for 3 slices, with the large size pizza being made up of 10 segments.
This equates to almost the total recommended daily intake of 2,000 calories for women, according to the UK’s National Health Service.
The woman, who is a vegetarian, explained that her boyfriend had to stay home after a night out with friends because the lack of public transport prevented him from returning home.
“I accepted that he stays here. We spoke on the phone before he went out and he said he was planning on getting take out pizza on the way home. I said I really wanted a pizza and he said he would get me one too.
“I told him what I wanted and asked him to have potato wedges, garlic dip, etc. I was really looking forward to it.
“I thought it would be really nice when he arrived so we could have pizza together and relax. I didn’t eat much all evening, waiting for the pizza,” she explained.
She fell asleep around 11:30 p.m., only to be woken up by him coming home in the early hours – without his pizza.
The woman claimed he had ordered one for himself which was on the way, and after calling her and getting no response he thought she was sleeping so did not buy her one.
She fumed, “Actually, I’m really pissed off. It was a firm deal that he would bring pizza back for both of us, he knew I was excited about it, I gave him my order of what I had been looking for…
“Even though I was sleeping and did not respond, AIBU [Am I Being Unreasonable] expecting him to bring me pizza anyway, thinking I’d probably wake up, be hungry and want the pizza I was promised, like I did ! ? Or am I pathetic for being so p****d with him?
“He is now downstairs enjoying his pizza which arrived two minutes ago while I am lying on my bed hungry and bored! »
In the comments, she confirmed that he ordered a pepperoni pizza that she couldn’t share hers, and that the restaurant that delivered her food had since closed.
And she sought to defend herself from eating so late, or so early, saying, “I wouldn’t necessarily have wanted to be woken up at 3 a.m. to eat the pizza. I could have had mine today.
“However, the fact that he came back woke me up, and I was hungry so yeah, I wanted the pizza once I woke up and I was annoyed that he didn’t go through with the plan thinking “Either she’ll wake up when I’m home and I want her, or she’ll want her tomorrow.” »
At the end, she ate a butty chips her boyfriend made her, which is a sandwich filled with french fries.
His anger raised a few eyebrows online, as Cas112 wrote, “I think you are being unreasonable. I plan to bring pizza to my partner, but if he fell asleep, I wouldn’t care. Why the hell would I wake him up? for pizza at 3am, I don’t think it’s a crazy thing for your partner to do on that occasion. »
Ms TimRiggins said: “Basically that. I would think my husband had lost his mind if he decided to come and wake me up with fucking pizza at 3am”
PortMac commented, “Who wants pizza at 3am?! YABU [You Are Being Unreasonable]. You seem boring. »
And Katherine Janeway added: “YABU. He called you, you didn’t answer so he assumed you were sleeping and didn’t want pizza. It’s not an unreasonable assumption. get one instead of lying in your bed hungry and bored? »
