Sorry, that food is off-limits…yes, even for you, my pregnant friend!
Ouch…that doesn’t sound very good, does it?
And we’re about to really get into it in this story from Reddit’s “Am I the A**hole?” page!
Read on to see what happened and let us know if you think this guy acted like a jerk.
“I (33M) have had the same friends since college.
We became close our freshman year and have remained friends since then. It consists of me and my four buddies + our wives. It started out as me and my buddies but as we got older our families have expanded and so have the friend group.
Once a month we have barbecues and each one of us take turns hosting. My wife, Jane, is autistic and has trouble eating certain foods. She has sensory issues. To be safe I have given my friends a list of foods that are safe for her to eat and won’t cause any problems. It’s really easy food and none of them have a problem accommodating her.
The other day we were over at one of my friends house. His name is John (fake name). We all got our food and his wife, Caroline, went and grabbed the plate that was for my wife. My other friend’s, Nick, wife saw. Her name is Sarah and she is pregnant.
She said she didn’t want the food that was made and wanted my wife’s food. The problem was John and Caroline only made enough for Jane and not enough for anybody else. Sarah then demanded my wife give up her food because she has a baby to nourish and my wife doesn’t.
My wife has trouble communicating what she wants to other people so I told Sarah that my wife only eats certain foods and this is one of them. Sarah snapped back saying that the other food is making her nauseous and she has to eat something and my wife’s food is the only thing that looks appealing to her.
I told her that she or her husband can get in the kitchen and make something but my wife will not be giving up her food. She called me rude and inconsiderate and stormed out of the backyard. Nick went to chase after her shortly after.
AITA for not letting a pregnant woman eat my wife’s food?”
