Ashley had enough of her roommate’s food theft and devised a sneaky revenge plan involving vegetables! What she didn’t know was that her act of retaliation would lead to explosive confrontations and even threats of legal action!
She Lived With a Food Thief
Ashley’s lived peacefully with a single mother roommate and her child, but it took an unexpected turn when her food started mysteriously disappearing. As food continued to go missing, Ashley began to get frustrated, pushing her to seek a solution.
Veggies to the Rescue
Luckily for her, she discovered that her roommate and her roommate’s child both despised vegetables. The plan was simple enough. She started using vegetables in absolutely everything she ate.
The Mac ‘n’ Cheese Showdown
One day, as Ashley poured roasted brussels sprouts into a pot of mac ‘n’ cheese, her roommate’s anger reached a boiling point. She angrily accused Ashley of being greedy! It was clear that she felt entitled to Ashley’s food.
Ashley’s response? “I like Brussels sprouts.”
She Isn’t Heartless!
The thing is, Ashley knows her roommate isn’t doing great with money. She really is empathetic to her roommate’s situation, and if her roommate were being more reasonable, she’d be more than happy to share her food.
But the rudeness and entitlement are just too much.
But She’s Setting Boundaries
So Ashley continued to add vegetables to all her dishes. From lasagna layers with celery and bell peppers to sautéed mushrooms mixed with taco meat, she was determined to keep her food as her own.
An Explosive Outburst
When her roommate saw Ashley adding mushrooms to some taco meat, her roommate’s attitude took an unexpected and angry turn. She blew up in a tantrum, yelling and stomping around the kitchen while threatening legal action and involving the authorities!
She Tried to Help
Even despite all this abuse, Ashley tried to help. She suggested ways her roommate could make her money stretch further, like going to food pantries and budgeting and spending more responsibly.
She Can’t Feed Them Forever
Some Reddit users criticized her for not doing more to feed the single mother and her hungry child, but Ashley was quick to clarify the situation.
“I do NOT make enough money to regularly feed two other people. If every now and then she asked for some of my leftovers, sure. But this is a consistent thing that was happening. It’s not simple as giving her leftovers that I ‘won’t eat anyway.’ If I make a pot of something I expect live off of that for the next few days.”
Thoughts and Advice
Several Reddit users were quick to offer their thoughts and advice. “I would have stopped dead in my tracks and asked her why she was telling me that her son hates mushrooms.”
“Call her out directly. Stop skirting the issue. Her food insecurity is NOT your problem. Her STEALING your food is your problem,” one user said.
