The original poster (OP) says her husband has been working really hard the last two years and finally received the promotion he was hoping for. OP says she is very proud of him.
His Parents Want to Celebrate
His parents want to take everyone out to dinner to celebrate.
He Loves Prime Rib
Her husband loves prime rib and he picked the only restaurant in their area that serves it. However OP isn’t a fan of steak and said “I’ll eat it but very rarely. I prefer chicken or fish.”
She Doesn’t Like the Menu
OP says she looked at the menu before leaving and she felt it was very limited. She didn’t like the fish or chicken entrees they had available, saying “none of them sounded good for various reasons.”
She Suggested They Eat Elsewhere
She asked her husband to pick another restaurant but he had his heart set on the prime rib location because they rarely go there. They also go to the other restaurants that OP likes regularly. But she still believes the other places have more variety so everyone can find something to enjoy.
Her Husband Suggested She Ask for Changes to Her Meal
Her husband suggested she ask the kitchen to prepare the fish or chicken without the marinades or sauces but she doesn’t want to make it difficult for the kitchen staff.
Her Husband Suggested She Eat Dessert First
He suggested she order dessert while everyone else ate their entrees and then after the dinner he could take her somewhere else to eat. Then he and the kids could have dessert while she ate where she wanted to.
She Decided Not to Go At All
She decided not to go out to eat because she didn’t want to sit there and not eat or not have a good time while everyone else was.
Her Husband Asked Her Again But She Refused
Her husband asked her to go again because he wanted to celebrate with the people most important to him but she refused again.
They Came Back Early
He returned with the kids after a little over an hour and they all had to-go boxes. He said he couldn’t think of what to tell the kids about why OP didn’t go when they kept asking. He didn’t want to lie or make OP sound bad so he just got an order for them to go and let the kids spend time with their grandparents in the parking lot.
OP and Her Husband Had an Argument
OP told her husband he should have stayed but he said that she put him in a bad spot with the kids. He wish she would have gotten over her picky eating for one night so that he could celebrate with everyone. OP still thinks her husband should have just picked a restaurant with a “more accommodating menu.”
The Readers Respond
Readers overwhelmingly responded negatively to the original poster, the wife who refused to celebrate with her husband, her children and her in-laws because she didn’t like the menu items. Her post actually sparked a huge backlash which she likely didn’t anticipate, with commenting on her terrible behavior.
Many readers said she had several options such as an appetizer, salad, or a different side like baked potatoes or fries if she wanted to make it work. Thousands of other respondents said they would do whatever it takes to make it work and be there to celebrate with their spouse.
“I can’t even eat steak and I still would go to a steak restaurant for my spouse. They usually have banging sides anyway. OP is incredibly selfish and owes her husband a do-over celebration.”
Another reader discussed how amazing her husband was to want to hide the truth from their children.
“You don’t have a food allergy, you’re just picky. You absolutely ruined what was supposed to be a celebration. You were incredibly selfish, and yet your husband still protected your image with the kids by not telling them the truth and making you look bad.”
