Here's how it all went down
Prepping for a nostalgia dinner
You know the food is special when someone orders half the menu
A heart-wrenching honest opinion
OP's husband didn't take those comments lightly
Here's how the Reddit community reacted to the story:
"You didn't have to rag on it. You could have just said it wasn't your style."
"Apologize to your husband for your gross insensitivity."
"YTA. How dare he spends a few minutes speaking to an old acquaintance!? How dare he want to relive good childhood memories!?"
"You were aware that the meal was about a nostalgic memory and not an audition for Gordon Ramsay. YTA"
"Sounds like you rained on what was basically a sweet trip down memory lane."
"YTA. There is something called tact. Look it up. Learn it. Live it."
"Nothing wrong with speaking your mind, but take into consideration your husband's feelings."
"You straight up disregarded his emotions and nostalgia towards this meal"
"Why did you have to ruin his childhood nostalgia? Why did you chose to be deliberately harsh?"
"OP needs to learn the difference on being honest and being cruel."
"Learn some empathy...YTA"
"You could have considered your response much better. Honesty doesn't have to be so reductive to only criticism."
"You knew this place was special to him and he was clearly super excited about it. I feel like you could have been a bit more gentle with your response."
"I can appreciate that this was likely kinda boring for you, but c’mon, grow a heart."
"Don’t rain on your husband’s parade."
"Adult up and stop acting like self-centered brat."
OP didn’t get much love from the Reddit community. Many believe she was selfish and inconsiderate about her husband’s feelings.
Some even argued that she could have been honest without hurting his feelings. Yes...sometimes we can say our truths while also being emphatic.
What do you think? Was OP the A-hole for being honest about how she felt about the food? Let us know in the comments below!
