Woman beaten up for feeding her boyfriend leftover food to her dog

The internet has blasted a woman for feeding her dog the leftovers from dinner her boyfriend made for her.

Posted on Reddit’s r/AmITeA**hole forum, a woman using the anonymous username u/throwawayscraps shared her story to get feedback from the “AITA” community. The viral post has over 10,000 upvotes and 4,000 comments.

The original poster (OP) began her story by explaining that she has been with her boyfriend “Jay” for four months and is very happy in the relationship. Recently Jay planned a full day with the OP as they took a nature walk and then returned to his house where he prepared dinner for them. She was excited about the date as it would be her first time at his house. Since they were going for a walk, she brought along her dog “Shelby” as Jay was fine with it.

For dinner he made a roast and some vegetables. When dinner was over, she decided to take some of the leftover roast and vegetables and make a plate for her dog. When Jay asked her what she did with the leftovers, she explained that she would feed them to Shelby.

The OP wrote, “Jay said something like ‘Well, that’s not dog food.’ Jay knows I feed Shelby mostly raw food. I opened the door to put the plate down for Shelby and Jay got up, took the plate from her, went into the kitchen and came back with him wrapped in aluminum foil and told me to do it. His excuse was that he was eating dinner made for him and me not him and my dog ​​and that I should have asked before helping myself as he would have used his leftovers.

“I left but not before telling him he made this meal for us so I could make some of it how I want and he knew damn well how to feed Shelby. I tried to talk to my friend about it later that evening but she said Jay was right to be upset but that friend never really agreed with how I treat my own dog so I have a feeling she probably has a bit biased and the wrong person to ask,” she concluded.

In an edit, the OP confirmed that she doesn’t eat out often and when she does, she only feeds Shelby foods that are safe for her. Typical meals for your dog include brown rice, raw vegetables, ground chicken hearts, and beef liver. The meat is cooked sufficiently to kill the bacteria that can be harmful to dogs. She confirmed that the meat for Shelby was safely cooked and was given fresh vegetables.

news week contacted u/throwawayscraps for comment.

Redditor reactions

“Yes, [you’re the a**hole]’ shared u/He_Who_Is_Right, receiving the top comment from over 28,000 upvotes: ‘Your (now ex) boyfriend prepared a special meal for you. You took a big piece of this special meal and gave it to your dog. Not only that, but you did it because you knew it would upset your (now ex) boyfriend.

“You should have brought dog food to feed Shelby. You shouldn’t have fed Shelby human food, and you especially shouldn’t have fed your dog that special dinner your (now ex) boyfriend cooked for you. That’s completely irrelevant »Jay knows [you] feed Shelby mostly raw food,'” the commenter continued.

“[You’re the a**hole]. You haven’t lined your dog table with scraps of food. You took half of the leftover meat from the meal to feed your dog,” commented u/4games1.

“[You’re the a**hole] It would have taken 5 seconds to ask. A quarter roast isn’t leftovers, so are you [a**hole] for misrepresenting the situation. Just because he knows the crazy ways you feed your dog doesn’t mean he wants to spend his hard-earned money and effort to feed him the same way,” explained u/thoracicbunk.

“I say this as someone who feeds their dog safe table scraps all the time – [You’re the a**hole] . Roast is expensive and it’s ridiculous that he bought and cooked that meal for you and then you just put $10 meat on a plate for the dog without asking is ridiculous,” wrote u/HauntingAccomplice.
