A woman’s hobby of Instagramming food sparks conflict with her unsupportive boyfriend. He deliberately ruins her pictures during a date she’s paying for. She had to teach him a lesson. Here is what she had to say.
“I have an Instagram account dedicated to photos and short videos of food from local restaurants in my city. I don’t turn meals into a whole photoshoot production when I go out, but I like to snap a few photos of everything as it comes out. I’ve got about 1000 followers, it’s just a hobby for me but I have made friends with some other bloggers and we like to go out and get pics together and try new restaurants.”
Her Boyfriend Isn’t Supportive
However, her boyfriend hated her food photography hobby and would intentionally mess up her pictures and rolled his eyes when she took photos of her food. This made her not bother taking pictures when they went out together.
She Is Unable to Dine out So Often
Lately, money had been tight due to medical bills, making it challenging for the woman to go out with her foodie friends. The infrequent dates with her boyfriend became the only chance for her to enjoy dining out.
She Hopes He Can Understand Her Perspective
She spoke to her boyfriend, asking him to let her enjoy her hobby without being immature about it. Telling him, “Look, just let me enjoy things”.
As they alternated who paid for their dates, she said to him “I would appreciate it if he could spare the 30 seconds for me to snap a pic of the appetizer and his meal on nights that I was paying, and I got a sort of half-hearted ‘do whatever you want’ confirmation.”
Things Started Okay
When it was the woman’s turn to pay on a Sunday, her boyfriend allowed her to take a picture of the appetizer with minimal fussing. However, when the entrees arrived things changed.
But Not for Long
As she took a photo of his dish, he purposefully messed it up with his fork. To add insult to injury, he proceeded to stir her pasta, ruining the photo of her own meal as well.
This infuriated her to the point where she refused to pay for his half at the end of the meal. He became angry, arguing that she couldn’t just decide not to pay after they had already placed their orders, especially since he wouldn’t have ordered a cocktail if he had known she would skip her turn.
Was the Woman Justified in Her Actions?
The woman was left questioning whether she was justified in not paying for his half of the meal.
The Internet Had Their Say
One person said, “Why are you even dating someone who clearly has no respect for you or your hobbies? Dump this jerk.”
But another poster said, “I feel like there’s more to this than is being let on. No rational person gets this upset about their partner wanting to snap a few quick photos of their dish to the point they intentionally sabotage the photos.”
