Would This Annoy You?

If there are less than 4 pieces of bread left in the loaf Mr F will open a new one and start eating that.

YES!

You know why it is especially annoying? Because if I see the new one open I assume that's the loaf we're on and start using it too. Only to discover the rest all old and stale a week later! Drives me crazy. This is the first time I've caught him in the act.

Supermom said...

I have someone in the house just like that. He will also buy things and let them go bad. I don't like for him to grocery shop.

Andrea said...

Heck yeah, you know something that irrates the fire out of me is Chris always yes always puts the damn h20 pitcher back in the fridge with not even a gulps worth of water I mean theres nothing like being thirsty and opening the fridge to see the damn empty pitcher.

Jennifer said...

LMAO! I do the same thing! The end of the bread is not as fresh as a new loaf. lol. hee hee. Sorry Mrs. F.

P/F said...

My husband does that with everything!
Ketchup, toothpaste, bread, soap, shampoo. I hate being wasteful, so I dutifully use up the scraps while the King gets to use all of the new stuff! Plus, how amazing does my bathroom/kitchen look with two of everything in it. It is a big peeve for me.

Chris Howard said...

That's just ridiculous. I often am more sympathetic with Mr F when he draws your ire, but there's no excuse for that. In fact, I think people need to eat the heels too. Whack him with a bag of stale bread.

Mrs Furious said...

Chris,
I knew you'd have my back on this one!

LOL... yeah I can relate! ;)

Yup, it's a man thing...and I hate being sexist like that, but it's like it's built into their DNA or something. Mine will leave almost empty container/bags/bottles/etc in the frige for posterity...and doesn't even notice when someone else (ie: ME!) cleans the stuff up. Same with dishes and recyclables in the sink...apparently he thinks a fairy cleans that stuff up!

P/F said...

Bionicwoman - You get your husband to put stuff back in the fridge? You have to tell me your secret :)

Mr Furious said...

[takes the stand]

There were two pieces left, which I assumed to be the end piece and the second-to-end piece. Crappy for sandwiches, but actually my preferred bread for toast—something Mrs F and I eat multiple slices of every night.

That bread would have ended up in my stomach—not the trash—just at a later time.

What was unknown to me at the time Mrs F ripped my head off, was that she had already removed the end pieces and these were two "center" slices.

How the heck would I know that? I happily made my sandwich and went on my way.

Mr Furious said...

Bionicwoman,

In our house, I am that fairy!

Mrs Furious said...

Mr F,
Oh please! I have photo proof of your non-fairy status at the ready! Remember leaving the vacuum in the center of the living room for 3 days... hmm who put that away?!


And the whole reason I removed the ends and left 2 center pieces is because I have learned what a bread wuss you are... and was doing my part (eating the heels) in an effort to circumvent the issue.

Several sliced of toast a NIGHT?!! Are you smoking crack?! I have toast like once every couple of weeks. A tub of caramel corn... yes. toast.. that is all you.

John Howard said...

That would annoy the crap out of me. And in reading Mr. F's response, I wonder why he wouldn't take the one normal piece of bread that he thought was in there before opening the new bread? I'm glad that it seems he still had plans to eat the old bread, anyway, because at my house, people open new things and the old ones just sit there until I throw them away. But if he had taken the one good slice, he would have realized it was actually two good ones, and avoided the whole mess.

Also, your post implies that this is something he does regularly, which would make it even more annoying. What is wrong with that last non-end piece of bread?

And for the record, like Chris, I'm usually more sympathetic to Mr. F's side of things on these kinds of posts.

Mrs Furious said...

John,
He claims they are too dry for sandwiches. Of course we go through a loaf every couple of days so how dry could it possibly be? I eat them.
And you are right... it is a habit that is why he never even checked to see what bread was in there.

P/F said...

"wonder why he wouldn't take the one normal piece of bread that he thought was in there before opening the new bread?..."

or take the old bread, and put it in the bag of new bread, if you're opening a new bag - to consolidate the bread?

Sorry Mr. F, this is really my issue with my husband, no offense meant to you (but if it applies -Shame!).

Mr Furious said...

John, I was making a sandwich and needed two interior slices. I thought there was only one in the bag plus a heel.

God's honest truth (or as Kid would yell, "TRUTH!") the second slice is the optimum toasting slice—it's the most dense. The end (if normal thickness—not a thin sliver) is next best. I had every intention of chowing those down at 1:00 a.m. when I am up late working, er, blogging.

I'm not going to try and plead to not being a wuss—my roommate long before I met Mrs F called me F.P. (for Food Pansy), but not in this case.

Yes, I left the vacuum out because i didnt finish vacuuming. And empty bottles, fruit stickers on the edge of the sink, weird "alive" leftovers in the fridge? That fairy work is ALL ME.

Mr Furious said...

No bread combining, P/F. We often have different kids of bread, or Rudy's Organic bread that can go moldy at the drop of a hat. If I stuck an old slice in with a new loaf it could ruin the whole thing.

Feener said...

oh yes, hubby does it with cereal boxes all the time. he leaves them in the cupboard with about 2 pieces in it and moves onto a fresh box - never to touch that empty one again ???wtf

Mrs Furious said...

Mr F,
That logic is whack. They are the exact same brand of bread. You are just grasping at straws now. And routinely the last two get left get stale and get thrown out... deal with it.

And LOL you weren't done vacuuming. If you haven't finished it up in 3 days... you were done.

julie said...

so I dutifully use up the scraps while the King gets to use all of the new stuff! P/F, LOL!!

Remember leaving the vacuum in the center of the living room for 3 days Very funny and very true around our house. Stuff just sits there until I have had it and ask him when the hell he is going put it away.

If you haven't finished it up in 3 days... you were done. LOL!

Mr Furious said...

Chris, John...help me out here!

SK and Family said...

I'm loving these comments! So glad I'm not alone in these little details of life and marriage...

:)

John Howard said...

Can't help you here Mr. F. If your optimum toasting slice stuff is accurate, I suppose that helps your case, but frankly, I agree with Mrs. F that you're grasping at straws.

And if it is indeed a habit, that flies in the face of your argument about intending to use it later.

Oh, but I'm not quite as tough as Chris, I don't think you should have to eat the heels.

rob said...

Ha ha,
FP. Glad to see somethings don't change.

Even the boys are going with Mrs. F on this one.

(Or are we trying to help our Karma for that Box of Fury Goodness?)

Elizabeth said...

I don't eat the heels, and I live alone, so what do I do? I throw them out. Or feed them to the birds.

Or did back when I bought bread from the store.

(my little bread machine that looks like R2D2 makes all my bread now. I love you R2!)

Kiki said...

.....I loathe to admit that I do this, not only that, but I will open a new toothpaste if squeezing it is too annoying. I take out a new bar of soap and I start new bottles of shampoo and conditioner on a whim.

Ken uses it ALL up happily, but I can't stand the dregs...something to do with my childhood???I could spend days analyzing that...I'm just glad that I share the same ailment with Mr.F!!!

michelline said...

Chris, John...help me out here!

Even I can't get your back here, Mr. F. I don't eat the heels, but all other pieces of bread are supposed to be eaten PRIOR to opening a new loaf.

And toothpaste is meant to be used up until the tube can't be squeezed any more. We use a plastic thingy on it to help that process out.

Mrs Furious said...

Ha ha ha Mr F! Even all your peeps stand solidly against you on this one! (even if they are just trying to win good favor for the drawing)
Mr F you lose! ;)

Kiki said...

No plastic thingy here for the toothpaste, Ken uses the back of his razor case, which has a flat edge to squeeze it up to the top...I think I get bored with the flavor and that is why I move on...

Robin said...

This is cracking me up!

goodmum said...

OH MAN! My Hubby does this with EVERYTHING. He can't finish a bottle of ketchup, a box of kleenex, a jar of peanut butter, a loaf of bread, etc. It makes me insane. I think he's doing it on purpose - if I'm committed to a psych ward he won't have to listen to me whine and complain any more.
