Woman Insisting Boyfriend Stops Adding Spices to Her Food Has Internet Torn

A post on social media has riveted the internet after a woman insisted her boyfriend stop seasoning her food.

Posted on Reddit’s r/AmITeA**hole forum, a woman using the anonymous username u/AITA_Spicy_Foods shared her story to get feedback from the “AITA” community. The popular post has over 7,000 upvotes and 4,000 comments.

The original poster (OP) began her story by explaining that she’s recently been staying at her boyfriend’s house more often. They divided up the chores around the house and one of the chores he took on was all the cooking. She described him as a “wonderful” chef and how all her friends enjoy the food he brings to parties. She admitted that she is unfamiliar with cooking and has never taken the time to learn it.

“That’s fine since he cooks, but his meals usually involve too much heat,” the OP explained, “he cooks with a lot of spices, sauces, and peppers. Since then I’ve kept asking him to tone it down I can’t take the heat. Or at least add the last ones so he can still have them, but my dish will be fine. He says it ruins the dishes and they don’t come out as flavorful and really lackluster. And adding the spices at the end ruins the whole balance.

“I finally snapped the other night and yelled at him to stop making hot dishes I can’t eat and he told me I’m always welcome to cook my own meals if I want to. I don’t understand why I have to cook when He already prepares the food, He can only season it less. That will give my night so much more time if he’s already doing that task,” the OP concluded.

How to share housework fairly while living with your significant other

There are many chores around the house to do on a daily basis including washing dishes, dusting, caring for pets and doing laundry. When you’re moving in with someone, it can be easier to split up the daily chores, but how do you split them up fairly? According to wedding.com, here are some ways to divide housework fairly:

  • Start by making a list of tasks that need to be done.
  • Choose the tasks that you enjoy.
  • Talk to your partner about who cares more about how guests view your home to help decide who cleans the house.
  • If you are overwhelmed with the number of tasks, you may want to try hiring someone to help you.
  • Be sure to state your expectations.
  • Plan ahead each week.

Redditor reactions

“Become apostate here: [Not the a**hole]’ u/Rhuthbard wrote, receiving the top comment from over 17,000 upvotes, ‘You share the chores and your friend does his chores in a way that doesn’t benefit you or force you to do your own, which everyone Negates the benefit you can derive from sharing responsibilities. Worse, your boyfriend doesn’t care that you can’t eat what he’s making. He could certainly make some adjustments or cook up some meals for you to eat. If I were you, I would think long and hard about this relationship.”

“[Not the a**hole], the tasks have been divided and one of his tasks is cooking. Saying “cook yourself” is like just vacuuming your side of the room, or just doing your laundry, etc. What’s the point of dividing up the chores at this point? What if you were vegan and he continued to make meat dishes? Then he would be the one [a**hole] but now people say [you’re the a**hole] if the result is the same, you can’t eat what he makes,” explained u/Alternative-Pea-4434.

U/charlieprotag said: “YOU DON’T EVEN LIVE THERE and complain about his cooking? Do you mean that seriously? [You’re the a**hole].”

U/sunfloweries commented: “[You’re the a**hole] Sounds like a good reason to stop making excuses and learn to cook, doesn’t it?”

“[Everyone sucks here]. Sounds like you’re all incompatible,” u/Elle_Vetica pointed out.
