He Organized a Potluck for His Neighbors, but When He Clocked a Guest Running Off with The Food, She Burst Into Tears and Accused Him of Fat Shaming

A man organized a potluck and pool party for his neighbors and their kids. Everyone was having fun until one of the guests tried to run off with a tray of someone else’s delicious food. He had to take action which caused a huge commotion. Here is what he had to say:

His Neighbor Was A Phenomenal Cook

The man said, ‘There is this Indian couple that lives near us called them Pooja & Jim. Now Pooja’s cooking is incredible and she brought over some samosas and chicken tikka masala. ‘

They Were Spoilt For Choice

Pooja had brought samosas for appetizers and chicken tikka masala for the main course. Everyone loved it, and it was the hit of the party. They were especially enjoyed by the man’s other neighbor, Lindsey, who ate most of the samosas with her husband. 

It Was Rude

The man thought it was rude that they ate most of the appetizers, especially since others hadn’t even had the chance to try them, but he didn’t say anything as he was trying to be the perfect host. But when the tikka masala was served, Lindsey took a considerable portion and then, five minutes later, announced that she would be leaving, taking her family with her.

She said she wanted to take the food home with her, and of course, the man said yes, figuring she’d take a bit of everything. Lindsey picked up the entire aluminum tray of chicken tikka masala, ignoring the guests who were still serving themselves.

The man immediately pulled her aside and asked her politely to leave it on the table as people were still eating. He would bring food to her house once the party had died down. But this made her angry.

The man said, ‘She then gets mad, saying she brought a big tray of muffins (she didn’t even bake these. They are from Costco).’

She Was Taking Her ‘Fair Share’

Things got weird when she claimed she was taking her ‘fair share’ of the potluck. Her attitude was highly territorial, and the man soon became very uncomfortable. She claimed he was targeting her. That’s when his wife stepped in to try and diffuse the situation.

He Humiliated Her

The man’s wife calmly said that they were only trying to ensure everyone had enough food. But the woman started crying and threw the tray back on the table. She said that they had humiliated her on purpose because she was a ‘fat girl’.

The couple who had made the food was stunned. They stepped in to reassure the woman that it was OK if she wanted to take the food home. After all, they could always make more! And if food was low, they’d order a pizza for everybody.

But It Was Awkward

But Lindsey left in a state, her children following soon after. Pooja said she was flattered by how much the woman liked her cooking, but the man thought she was just being polite. He felt terrible for humiliating one of his guests but thought leaving a party early and taking most of the food with her was rude. He asked the internet for advice.

The Internet Responded

One person said, ‘At a potluck, the only thing you should take home is what you brought (if there is any left at the end!) and any dishes you brought your food in’.

Others Had Opinions

Another commented, ‘I’m glad Pooja is gracious, but I’d fight someone if they tried to abscond with good chicken tikka masala before everyone got some, too.’
