Her Roommate Had No Money Left so She Gave Her Some Leftovers, but When She Found Half the Portion in The Trash She Refused to Help Give Her Anymore

Lena, a budget-conscious roommate, faces a dilemma with her wasteful roommate, Tammy, when Tammy repeatedly takes Lena’s leftovers and throws most of it in the trash, causing tension and complaints.

Limited Budgets

Lena and her roommate, Tammy, were both on fairly limited budgets, but Lena had a little bit of a buffer in her income as she had a little help from her parents. Lena also tended to make meals for herself, and she would save her leftovers so she could skip making herself a lunch or a dinner later in the week.

Different Perspectives

Tammy, on the other hand, made each meal as precisely as she could so she wouldn’t waste money, which was just two different ways of looking at meals, according to Lena.

However, just after Christmas last year, Tammy was very low on money and asked if she could please have some of Lena’s leftovers, and Lena agreed, but instead of serving herself a small portion to see if she would like Lena’s food, Tammy just took a full portion and ate about a quarter of what she took and threw the rest in the trash, which Lena didn’t say anything about.

Almost the exact same thing happened two weeks ago when Tammy asked for more leftovers, and this time Lena asked her to please just try a little before she took a full portion, but Tammy said she was really hungry, and almost an entire meal ended up in the trash.

Two nights ago, Tammy asked for Lena’s spaghetti, but Lena said no, as she didn’t want to watch her hard work literally go in the garbage, which led to Tammy not talking to Lena but complaining to other people about Lena being cheap and letting her “starve,” even though Lena gave her a box of generic mac and cheese for her to eat.

“She thinks I’m being a jerk because I won’t share my food,” Lena said. “I would share if she wasn’t wasting it.” Lena didn’t understand why Tammy wasn’t grateful for the food. It felt like she was throwing money in the garbage.

Straight to the Internet

Lena didn’t know what to do. She didn’t think she was in the wrong but also wasn’t sure. She decided to turn to the internet for some advice. Lena posted on a popular Reddit forum to see what other people’s opinions were.

The Internet Responded

This commenter posted their opinion by saying, “This sounds like some kind of weird diet/disordered eating. Something something “never clean your plate, portion control/blah blah”. If you want to waste your own food, fine. I wouldn’t let her waste mine.”

Another person commented, “Do not fold to the guilt she is creating by telling people the lies . Ask them to ask her what she did with the last few portions she asked for and received from you? And how 3/4 of 2 meals ended in the bin if she is being starved? No need to defend any action just ask the question and they will get the drift.”

A Final Comment

This last person wrote this comment, “She isn’t wasting her money, she’s wasting yours. She’s a grown adult, if she’s hungry, then she needs to provide food for herself. You are not her parent. Nor are you rich enough to throw away food like this. Let her fend for herself from now on.”
