Conversation today:
2pm- "what are we having for dinner"?
     "left overs,  there's spag or curry mince,  make toasties if you want"
      "OK,  cool."

4.30pm- 'I'm not hungry tonight,  if you want to eat,  eat,  make yourself something.   If I decide to eat, I'll ask you. "

7.30 - No conversation  but person that talked of left overs cracks it on not getting fed. Becomes hangry comes to bed wakes non hungry and just radiates unhappy.
Person not hungry gets up makes hungry person food.

Is hangry person being precious?  Was the conversation not clear?  Hangry is now doing what they want watching t.v.

Assuming everyone is a functioning adult, if they know there is left overs they can just sort themselves out. Not really that hard.

I think it depends on the age of Hangry before we all jump in.

Lol yes I have a few hangrys in my family while I am the non hangry one. To me it’s just bullsh*t because making yourself a piece of toast takes probably what, five minute max and is zero drama yet it’s like “oh my god I’m starving” we’ll wtf make something or why didn’t you have a bigger lunch when I told you earlier? I’m not even sure how I got the awesome thankless job of dinner lady when I’m the one whose happy with cheese and crackers!

Hangry person sounds like a child, but I'm guessing they're an adult.

Is there a physical reason why they can't make their own food?

when you are hangry you literally lose all common sense and brain function, and you won't be able to make any food.

Hangry is the oldest at like 40+yrs.  
Children dished up, helped each other,  offered hungry early tea then fed themselves.
Non hungry didn't eat offered helped to kids at 4.30 which is when hangry was told if you get hungry then 'eat,  feed yourself or IF I decide to eat I'll offer".

Hangry is 40+ yrs.  

At 4.30 kids were feed,  helped and hangry was offered and refused.  Was told exactly 'if your hungry eat,  I'm not hungry.  If I decide to eat I'll tell and ask you.  But if you get hungry eat".

Hungry has a history of it,  but come on,  it ain't hard....

And yes hungry is a fully functional adult,  no limitations - that called left overs for tea to start with.

I say that "I'm not cooking, but there's xyz in the fridge, cook it if you want" line all the time, to my KIDS, and they cope perfectly fine.
So if this is a fully functional adult, then yeah they're being ridiculous.

No that's not ok or normal in most relationships, beyond maybe a 2 year old.  If I'm understanding correctly, I would not make food for the angry person.

This. And non hungry should not reward that behaviour by waking up to make food for them.

Hangry would be tripping balls if they thought that waking me to get fed would work.
I'd murder

I don't understand.  If you are hungry,  surely you walk to the kitchen and get a banana? Why would you go to bed and wake up someone else and guilt them into making food for you? And if you are the non hungry person,  why would you get up and make food for someone like that?! Unless it was dog poo on toast.

Why did non-hungry person not just told hungry person they should help themselves to the leftovers...?!

I’m usually the hangry one who can come close to cracking it if DH says he’ll cook and then wait until 8 pm to start. In fact I did cracked it once because I was so hungry and there was nothing else to eat at home and DH didn’t let me order take out earlier.

I would be more than happy to heat up leftovers then wait around for food to be cooked if I’m hungry..

I get hangry, and this is very true. For me at least, hangry happens without passing through hungry. On the odd occasion when I am aware of it, I can deal with it and feed myself, but there has been many a time when DH has put food in front of me and told me to eat because I don’t have a clue. I’ve also put food on the bench for my hangry child and told him to come and get it when he’s ready because he isn’t conscious that what he needs is food.

Actually, hangry makes light of someone’s low blood sugar status, which is a health problem. For me, it’s bad enough that I always carry a snack of some kind, just in case, but it still happens.

I was close,  I love this, unfortunately I rewarded.  Glad to know I'm not mad though,  at time I do wonder.  
Our daughter was spewing,  the youngest boy I took out and enrolled in o.t so it was a busy afternoon.   I get Hangry, however I also recognise (maybe after a few snaps) and feed myself.
Little ones are hard,  our little ones are tag teaming I'll this week,  but I was somewhat taken aback as he was pretty warned and it was basically reheating.   All done now though I suppose,  he's feed asleep in bed,  I've cleaned up and am in the lounge as I was told to leave him alone.   Hangry - not nice,  no matter the end you on.   Thinking I'll buy snicker tomorrow

I think hangry is A bit of an excuse for someone’s laziness. If you are hangry, cook done toast.

#20 Jingleflea

Not excusing his behaviour but could he be stressed at work?

DH very rarely behaves in a similar manner and that's when I know he's stressed beyond breaking at work.

#21 SplashingRainbows

I cannot imagine myself or my husband ever, ever, waking a sleeping person to make food for a functioning adult.

That’s what cereal or toast or fruit is for isn’t it?

There’s always plenty of options here that don’t require much effort or thought.

OP I think your DH was incredibly disrespectful and I’d be taking that up with him in a calmer moment.

#22 Freddie'sMum

I hear my DH get up and eat food when he wakes in the middle of the night.  If he woke me up to get him some food, I would be beyond angry.

Unbelievable OP, absolutely unbelievable.

Your post is a bit contrary.  You say on the "odd" occasion you are aware of it, but then go on to say you always carry a snack just in case.   If you aware you have a problem, recognise the pattern, then you can self regulate.   There's no reason to get angry and depend on someone else to feed or regulate for you.  I doubt the OP's husband would have behaved like that at work, or at a friend's house.

It something I’ve been aware of being a problem for close to 30 years. I’ve had repeated blood tests - nothing abnormal detected. I can self-regulate if I eat by the clock, but that’s not always possible, and that’s when I can’t control it.

I wouldn’t wake DH to feed me.

He chucks a tanty because no food even though he has been what’s available. Are his arms painted on?

Then you enable his sh*tty behaviour by making him food then he goes to sleep whilst you kid wrangle!

Is he usually this useless?
