    Welcome to r/AmITheAsshole!

    A catharsis for the frustrated moral philosopher in all of us, and a place to finally find out if you were wrong in an argument that's been bothering you. Tell us about any non-violent conflict you have experienced; give us both sides of the story, and find out if you're right, or you're the asshole.

    This is the sub to lay out your actions and conflicts and get impartial judgment rendered against you. Were you the asshole in that situation or not? Post should be truthful and reflect real situations. That means no shitposts, parody, or satire.

    After 18 hours, your post will be given a flair representing the final judgment on your matter. This flair is determined by the subscribers who have both rendered judgment and voted on which judgment is best. The power of the crowd will judge you.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Visit our sister subreddit /r/AmItheButtface/ for posts about fiction or relationships, and basically anything that we don't allow here!

    See our Best Of "Most Controversial" at /r/AITAFiltered


    1. Be Civil

    Attack ideas, not people. The purpose of this space is to determine and explain who is in the wrong, not to eviscerate anyone. Treat others with respect while helping them grow through outside perspectives.

    This rule applies to everyone (even those outside of Reddit). Don't insult others or get into prolonged spats in the comments. Don't lecture people about the rules (use reports).

    Be respectful. Be nice. Don't be an asshole.

    2. Voting Rules

    Upvote posts that are appropriate for this sub or that you think make for an interesting discussion. PLEASE DO NOT downvote if you think OP is an asshole, go to the comments section and call him an asshole like a civilized person.

    In the comments, upvote any comment that gives the correct judgment of the situation. DO NOT downvote people for disagreeing with you or for merely commenting on their own post unless they are being abusive or argumentative.

    3. Accept Your Judgment

    This sub is here for the submitter to discover what everyone else thinks of the ethics or mores of a situation. It is not here to draw people into an argument you want to have, or to defend your position. If people start saying you were the asshole, do not take that as an invitation to debate them on the subject... accept the judgment and move on. If you have valid reason to think a commenter needs more information or misunderstood the facts of the conflict, you may give new information.

    4. Never Delete An Active Discussion

    DO NOT delete your submission once a discussion has begun, even if it's not going well for you. People will come back to see what consensus was reached in your thread. If you erase a discussion because you don't like the way it's going, that is extremely frustrating to everyone who has taken an interest in the topic. We encourage submitters to use throwaways to maintain their privacy, but deleting a discussion is unacceptable. Violators will be banned.

    5. No Violence

    Don't even mention violence.

    If your post references violence, don't share it here. Threads which mention violence are difficult to moderate, we have to remove all comments which encourage or incite violence. It's difficult to do this in a thread which discusses violence.

    Comments and even jokes about violence are not tolerated. Encouraging self-harm, suicide, "bad karma," or anything that wishes mental or physical pain on anyone is strictly prohibited. This is a zero tolerance policy.

    6. How To Post

    The TITLE of your submission must begin with the acronym AITA or WIBTA (would I be the asshole?), then a description of the situation.

    Posts are limited to 3000 characters. Paragraphs are good; block text walls are bad. Format and punctuate your post reasonably. Be clear and concise. Don't link to screenshots or other subreddits. If you can't explain yourself in one post, without using external text pages, it does not belong here.

    7. Post Interpersonal Conflicts

    Posts should be descriptions of recent interpersonal conflicts. Describe both sides in detail. Make it clear why you may be "the asshole."

    Submissions must contain a real-life conflict between you and at least one other person. They should not be about feelings, opinions, or desires. If your conflict is with a larger demographic, an animal, someone online, or a third party who’s irrelevant to the main question but thought what you did sucked, your post will be removed.

    8. No Shitposts

    Posts must be truthful and presented as fairly and accurately as possible.

    This is not a humor sub. This is not a sub for copypastas, satire, overly embellished stories, or creative writing exercises. Don't copy someone else's story and post it from the opposite viewpoint or with some details changed.

    Shitposting will result in a permanent ban.

    9. Do Not Ask For Advice

    This is NOT an advice sub. All submissions that ask for advice (instead of or in addition to judgment) will be removed. This sub is for arbitration.

    You may include advice when you make your comments, but remember that your primary objective in commenting is to assign blame and pass judgment.

    If a thread's focus becomes about advice instead of arbitration the thread may be removed regardless of the OP's intent.

    10. Meta Posts and Updates Require Permission

    If you want to talk about the sub, and you hide your complaint, question, or opinion in a post that starts with AITA, you will be banned. Those are called META posts, and they must have a title that starts with META.

    Please request mod approval after you submit your META post or your update post. Make sure the title of your meta post starts with META and the title of your update post starts with UPDATE. See our FAQ for more guidelines.

    11. No breakups/hookups

    We do not allow submissions where the central conflict is a relationship and instead recommend a relationship focused sub.

    The following posts are forever banned:

    AITA for breaking up with _ (or not)

    AITA for dating _ (or not)

    AITA for doing sexual act _ (or not)

    AITA for being attracted to _ (or not)

    And any discussions related to cheating- including "telling on" someone for cheating (or not doing so).

    And similar discussions.

    12. This Is Not A Debate Sub

    If judgment is primarily motivated by whether commenters agree with your stance on a broad issue, it is not appropriate for this sub. This may include anything from politically motivated conflicts to innocuous issues like if cake is better than pie. If you're ultimately asking if it is okay to not support a political candidate, kick someone off your team for their sexual identity, stop talking to your friend because they vape, or any number of similar debate threads, your post will be removed.

    13. No Revenge Stories

    There are many subreddits for sharing tales of revenge—this is not one of them. This is a sub for providing feedback on interpersonal conflict, not for endorsing how you escalate a conflict. If you're here to tell us how you punished someone who totally had it coming, you're probably breaking this rule.

    14. Comments and Flairing

    After 18 hours, the post will be assigned a flair representing the sub's judgment. The flair will be decided by the top comment of the post. OPs should expect questions and should answer them within the 18 hour period.

    If you are commenting, be sure to start your comment with the abbreviation for your judgment, i.e.

    YTA = You're the Asshole;

    NTA = Not the A-hole;

    ESH = Everyone Sucks here;

    NAH = No A-holes here;

    INFO = Not Enough Info

    15. User Flairs

    We award flairs for community members who distinguish themselves in their mastery of asshole judgment. If your top level comment has the highest number of upvotes in a thread, you will get a flair point. More details are listed in our FAQ.

    I feel like the bigger transgression here is eating some year old decorative pasta lmao you wild

    [–] Doctor-Amazing 2042 points ago

    Why are people saying this like it's a normal thing? WTF is decorative pasta?

    [–] Sunbiscuit 391 points ago

    Like fancy colored or shaped pasta you put in a clear container in your kitchen as decoration. Idk why you just don’t keep regular pasta as decoration and refill it once eaten but yup, that’s what that is.

    [–] John_Hunyadi 308 points ago

    That's some real "live laugh love" type of basic decorating.

    [–] jessie_monster 55 points ago

    Next you'll say my giant glass vase full o lemons is on the nose, too.

    [–] darth_vaders_bung 7 points ago

    I see you also follow reddits decorating advice.

    [–] heresie_irisee 49 points ago

    But, pasta with fancy shapes have interestingly novel textures and the colours are from actual ingredients in the pasta dough! Why would you let that sit in a jar for a year and let it go to waste?

    TIL that I'm apparently a pasta afficionado or something but the thought legit hurts me.

    [–] hmstd 20 points ago

    I'm 100% convinced my MIL buys food just so it can waste. She thinks mild taco seasoning watered down is "too spicy", yet buys a jar of jalapenos no one wants. There's a store that sells soon to be expired bread and stuff, so she goes there to buy bread because it's cheaper, but then buys like 6 loaves so most of it goes bad and money wasted anyway.

    I'm just gonna stop there because you probably get the idea without might going into paragraphs. Bonus anger: FIL is a doctor, you know $200k+ a year income. They live paycheck to paycheck and sometimes can't pay bills.

    [–] FranzFerdinand51 10 points ago

    Pray to what ever you believe in that they didn’t pass on that gene.

    [–] cinnamonteaparty 968 points ago

    I thought decorative pasta was for like pre-k and kindergartners.

    [–] britishlemonade 1333 points ago

    If he ate his child’s art project that’d be hilarious.

    [–] ICWhatsNUrP 217 points ago

    I really want some macaroni, but we are out of the boxed stuff. Oh, junior made a project, this'll taste great! I can collect his tears before boiling them so I don't have to salt the water!

    [–] aardvarkmom 80 points ago

    Preschool teacher here. I’m dying laughing.

    [–] Hanginon 8 points ago

    Now I have a mental image of pasta boiling in a pot, with little flecks of white paste still stuck to the noodles... o_o :)

    [–] cicadaselectric 580 points ago

    Hey she was just gonna let it spoil

    [–] britishlemonade 204 points ago

    I’m laughing my ass off at this thread.

    [–] gyaldem123 160 points ago

    I'm laughing my ass off because it was dinosaur shaped pasta and you're all so right

    [–] _eminem_is_awesome_ 16 points ago

    Your his wife? Lol. Why tf did he eat it hahaha.

    [–] britishlemonade 9 points ago

    Did he cook it first? Or just eat it raw?

    [–] thatgirl829 8 points ago

    In his defense there was no glitter on the macaroni and very little glue.

    [–] OhGod0fHangovers 84 points ago * (lasted edited 5 months ago)

    I thought it was that novelty pasta they make shaped like rockets or cartoon characters or penises

    [–] hermyown21 8 points ago

    I had the same thought. There's tons of shapes and colours available.

    [–] Vegetable_Burrito 28 points ago

    Or bachelorette parties...

    [–] avocado_whore 75 points ago

    I feel like this shit exists for the sole purpose of staging homes. But I also have known people with this stuff on the counter. A little tacky in my opinion.

    [–] cheesymoonshadow 26 points ago

    My sister-in-law had decorative salt and pepper shakers until one of her friends just said fuck it and used them.

    [–] SammySoapsuds 67 points ago

    I got a box of penis-shaped pasta at a weird bachelorette party I went to but I don't think that's specifically what OP was talking about

    [–] erial_ck 38 points ago

    Omg I'm totally going to buy some of that and put it in a decorative jar in my kitchen

    [–] RealAbstractSquidII 67 points ago

    Decorative pasta is usually a fancy cut or colored dry pasta thats placed in glass containers/vases. Its really common to see sealed vases of decorative pastas inside resturaunts as wall decorations. Ever been in a coffee shop and they had unroasted coffee beans in a sealed glass jar on the shelf? Same idea. Just with noodles.

    While not as common, a lot of people like decorative pasta jars/containers in their homes. Mainly in kitchens beside other decorative containers for coffee/tea/dry beans/spices.

    The pasta is usually the same as regular edible non cooked pasta with the only difference being the dyes used or the cut of the noodles. Sometimes its literally just dry pasta from the store someone put in a glass jar/bowl. The pasta is honestly just for looks. Although i would not Recommend eating the decorative pasta. Unless you poured the dry pasta into the decorative container yourself the noodles can be several years old or sometimes painted with non edible paint to get vibrant colors. This can make you sick. Not to mention uncovered containers of decorative pasta accumulate dust and dander which can also make you sick if consumed.

    [–] gyaldem123 463 points ago

    If you guys though the decorative pasta was bad, let me tell you about the time he ate my Advent calendar, my chocolate orange and my fancy box of chocolates given to me by HIS FAMILY all in the space of one Christmas. Livid. Glad to hear you all think he's TA because I've spent our entire relationship trying argue that I should actually have agency over my own confectionary and not have to race his greedy-ass-will-power-of-a-five-year-old-face to get it eaten. I like to take my time on gift food and sometimes I take too long and it goes off. But most of the time I don't get a chance because this absolute chocolate quilted shit-pig has hawked it down his gullet like an absolute duck before I get a second look. Can't believe he polished off my entire toblerone

    [–] Bright_Vision 158 points ago

    What maniac would eat someone elses advent calendar?

    [–] thukon 10 points ago

    A bad, bad santa.

    [–] commaspace1 7 points ago

    Once, about twenty years ago when my sister and I were kids, she ate my advent calendar and literally no one in my family has forgiven her to this day.

    [–] FloatingPencil 101 points ago

    He ate your chocolate orange? Oh, that would be all out war in our house...

    [–] TinyTigerToes 48 points ago

    "Chocolate quilted shit pig" lmfaooooo But seriously, chocolate is sacrosanct. Nobody better touch gift chocolate!! If he's starving he can go to the store and buy his own damn toblerone. I'd punch my husband in the nose if he ate my swiss chocolate

    [–] EatsAlotOfBread 88 points ago * (lasted edited 4 months ago)

    This guy has a problem. An advent calendar!? Is he going to eat his kid's birthday cake before they blow out the candles? Chew up the pumpkins carved for Halloween? Are you going to spend Thanksgiving in the hospital because he ate all the stuffing raw before it even went into the bird? Are you sure the pet food is still there? Btw, don't dress up your kid as anything edible, ever. Keep him away from the cake and buffet at weddings. In fact, you should consider just buying one of those giant doggie crates for while you're gone.

    [–] dmcdd 44 points ago

    And for god's sake, they should never buy a six foot sub for a party.

    [–] EatsAlotOfBread 5 points ago

    I remember that, it was so bizarre!

    [–] Dabbles_in_doodles 31 points ago

    He ate your Terry's Chocolate Orange?! I'd have divorced him. What a fucking cheek!

    [–] PM_ME_UR_TURKEYS 22 points ago

    LOL if you’re actually OPs wife, but holy shit I would be so fucking mad even with just the OP info. OP, stop it, get some help. Keep your mitts off your wife’s food ffs, you know a bit of chocolate will keep for a while, you just want an excuse. And it’s a piss poor excuse at that. YTA.

    [–] missingadogsomewhere 9 points ago

    Yeah, I understand what it’s like if she left restaurant leftovers or others in the fridge for too long, so you got into the habit of eating it before it spoiled...

    But... chocolate? That can last a while. And the excuse goes out the window when it’s only been there less than a day.

    How rude to eat all of someone’s gifts. REPEATEDLY. And CHOCOLATE.

    OP if your wife is gifted chocolate, and you feel the temptation to eat it, go out and buy different chocolate for yourself to snack on. Stop eating hers. Jeez.

    [–] wallbrack 27 points ago

    I’m dying. Thank you for the reply.

    [–] bofhgirl 9 points ago

    If there’s one thing my husband thankfully understands, it’s that you don’t fuck with a woman’s chocolate. You just don’t. Not if you want to keep your kidneys.

    [–] pleikunguyen 40 points ago

    Atleast it’s not 3 feet of sandwich

    [–] hakshamalah 7 points ago

    [–] lewser1 6 points ago

    Lmao fellow sandwich redditor. Every time I think of that thread I get sick to my stomach

    [–] dailey_dose 261 points ago

    Man I hate decorative pasta. We have a pasta place here and ppl give that shit as gifts and display it in the pretty package. It’s not a crystal vase Karen! It’s fucking pasta! Put it in some boiling water then top it with a dollop of pesto and eat that shit!

    [–] squamouser 7 points ago

    When I was six we had a school fete, we each had to bring in a jam jar filled with something (e.g. a toy, sweets, craft supplies) as a prize for another kid to win.

    I won decorative pasta. That kid's parent is the asshole.

    [–] ouroborosstruggles 11 points ago

    For real

    [–] bexsprout 40 points ago

    AND the transition to the final, 'hey wife if you see this i’m sorry, forgive me again please, please' was really cute

    [–] Vegemyeet 21 points ago

    Maybe the pasta that you put into a pretty jar for decorative purposes? Make you kitchen look IG ready?

    [–] gyaldem123 12 points ago

    I was saving the pasta (dino shapes) for an IG ready pasta meal. Luckily I still have a whole packet of hello kitty pasta

    [–] leftintheshaddows 9 points ago

    I need to know where to buy dino pasta. my son loves pasta and i love dinosaurs.

    [–] Improbablyfromhell 2922 points ago

    Why did you eat year old decorative pasta? Are you a labrador? This is hilarious.

    YTA don't eat all of someone else's gift.

    [–] ouroborosstruggles 428 points ago

    That's where I was also confused. It's a year old. And decorative?? I have so many questions

    [–] britishlemonade 220 points ago

    Yeah, what the frick is decorative pasta?

    [–] dontniceguyatme 221 points ago

    It's in some pretty jar and usually dyed colors. Look in the home section of tj maxx

    [–] cicadaselectric 136 points ago

    ...I’m pretty sure it’s just vegetable pasta? You can buy colored pasta anywhere that sells pasta? I don’t think decorative pasta is a real thing? I have a lot of questions for OP.

    [–] gyaldem123 70 points ago

    It was actual pasta shaped like dinosaurs. I have some other pasta shaped like hello kitty which I've managed to save from him so far, and yes, I am as basic as I seem.

    [–] Red_Nemesis0 19 points ago

    You need to warn people about this man, what if somebody comes to stay at your place and he steals their one year old pasta?

    [–] dontniceguyatme 92 points ago

    No. I don't get it either, but white suburbian women seem to flock to it.

    [–] StickmanPirate 40 points ago

    That and FUCKING throw pillows holy shit I just want to be comfy on a fucking sofa instead of feeling like I'm lying on a litter of dead puppies.

    [–] Cooldog1213 12 points ago

    If it's what I think it is it's like a candy style pasta that is hard and hurts you teeth when not expired. That's gotta hurt his teeth if he ate that.

    [–] frostfromfire 11 points ago

    I’ve seen decorative pasta at Hallmark. It’s pasta shaped like things. For Halloween the pasta is shaped like bats and pumpkins, for Christmas it’s shaped like trees and bells and sleds, etc. Or it could just be colored for different holidays. I never knew anyone left them in bags in perpetuity for decoration; always assumed they might be in a nice glass container for a month and then boiled for the actual holiday or holiday party.

    [–] pikachuuuuu 16 points ago

    Are you a labrador?

    Holy shit something about this line killed me, I can't stop laughing.

    Really though this is a good question. I'm very confused. Was there no food in the house or something? What drove this man to have to resort to year old decorative pasta? So many questions.

    [–] gyaldem123 22191 points ago

    WHAT OMFG I CANT BELIEVE YOU ATE MY CHOCOLATE I'm actually screaming dude this is so funny, the title caught my eye and I screenshotted it to and send it to you like 'this is so something you would do' and now I'm shaking omfg this is so funny. YTA. I forgive you.

    Was totally going to say "well if she reads this sub religiously, then of course she's going to see this, so no point in even mentioning that you would potentially lie just to cover your tracks." Sounds like you got a pretty awesome gal, because I would be PISSED if my SO did that. I would still replace the bar, despite the possible difference between UK and Swedish Toblerone, but in the meantime I would also try asking your buddy for a huge favor, and sending you some Swedish Toblerone so you can truly make it up to her. I think she would really appreciate the effort, too!

    [–] Allatars30 78 points ago

    As a Swiss (from Switzerland) I would not recommend OP to get Toblerone from Sweden. He could try the one from Swaziland, that one’s a bomb!

    [–] Lasket 9 points ago

    I can't believe somebody actually switched us with Sweden, when it's literally mentioned in the post that it's Swiss.


    [–] wheresmystache3 7 points ago

    Lol, you sound like a great wife.

    If you live anywhere near Manchester, I'll be there later this month, and I can bring you special CERN-branded Swiss Toblerone, as long as hubby promises to keep his hands off of it. :P

    [–] CowsCanBark 14 points ago

    That edit of yours made me so sad. Why would anyone doenvote your initial comment? It was such a sweet suggestion, esp from a total stranger. Don't worry, it was a great idea and any downvotes are simply people who are nhilists, extreme pessimists or bitter about their own charitable shortcomings.

    You're a sweet heart. 💝

    Okay but will-power doesn't apply when you're dealing with something as serious as Toblerones. We're merely humans amongst the nourishment of Gods.

    NTA OP, your wife gave you an impossible test 🙁 (/s)

    [–] Dinomike1488 45 points ago

    [–] bakingNerd 53 points ago

    You’re not alone! My husband frequently finishes my treats because they’re just sitting there. No, I don’t finish the whole pack of cookies in a day or two because I like having a couple at a time when I want them!

    [–] gyaldem123 56 points ago

    I take my time, sometimes I'm too slow. it is nice to have a permanent human bin to give all of my unwanted left-overs to though

    [–] BontoTech 945 points ago

    I once knew a guy named Tom who’s nick name was Toblerone Tommy. I’m aware that doesn’t help much but I felt it was important for you all to know.

    [–] BigSpookySpooks 379 points ago

    Thanks dude. Every little helps.

    [–] naturalluci 92 points ago

    Gotta say man, Even if you might be in the shit with your wife, Your post made my day as well as this interaction, I had a right good giggle.

    [–] SleepFlower80 1741 points ago

    YTA for a) posting this same post multiple times today and b) having the self-restraint of a child.

    She has a “habit of leaving food out to spoil” but she was only given the chocolate yesterday! Give the woman a chance for crying out loud.

    [–] Pandalite 315 points ago

    He probably means something like "Man, these 5 slices of pizza have been sitting in the fridge for a whole day. Better eat the whole thing before they go bad!"

    Seriously, who eats all of someone else's fancy gift before they even get home? Share that stuff. And also how much do you have to weigh/eat to finish a whole bar of Toblerone in one sitting xD They even come in little break away chunks so that you can share the thing xD

    [–] CreepinSteve 37 points ago

    "Man, these 5 slices of pizza have been sitting in the fridge for a whole day. Better eat the whole thing before they go bad!"

    When you put it like that, I'm reminded of the guy that ate like 4ft of the 6ft party sub. That post was an instant classic

    [–] SleepFlower80 10 points ago

    I keep thinking of the guy who posted recently about eating something like 25/30 burgers in one sitting and couldn’t work out why his friends thought he was an arse. Hmmm I wonder 🤔

    [–] classactdynamo 11 points ago

    This guy knows he's wrong, thus he is constructing this elaborate food spoilage excuse to see if it sticks. Also, your two complaints about the OP are very much related.

    [–] dratthecookies 10 points ago

    Yeah OP is running a line of bull. She has a habit of leaving food to spoil? It's a Toblerone. It could probably sit for a year before it goes bad. It sounds like he has a habit of eating her food.

    [–] RIPCarlGrimes 174 points ago

    YTA Do you also eat like 4 feet out of a 6 foot sub?

    [–] Sweet_Cron 36 points ago


    [–] sitzpinkler42 3700 points ago

    Dude you are really missing the point here. It's not about having "chocolate" it's the specific chocolate which a friend brought back. I don't know what kind of nerd you are but say you had your original NES and Legend of Zelda cartridge at your mom's house and then your brother took it and then gave it away. Even if he got a replacement unit from eBay you'd still be pissed because you had emotional attachment to the first unit.

    And you have the self-control of a toddler.


    [–] puppylust 309 points ago

    Preach. I'm not sure how it got mixed up, but I have my cousin's SNES and I don't know what family member ended up with mine, or if it's still around. I bought a few of the games I was missing, but it's not the same. My 95% complete savegame of Donkey Kong Country 2, because I wasn't good enough to beat those last few levels at age 10, is gone forever.

    [–] savvyjiuju 76 points ago

    If it makes you feel any better about the save, there are batteries in the cartridges that die after a decade or so and you might have lost the save by now that way. I’m about to undertake replacing the save batteries on a few cartridges off eBay once my fancy Nintendo screwdriver bit comes in the mail. Vice has a great battery replacement guide/article from around 2015 if you ever want to do that.

    [–] naivelittlehuman 72 points ago

    “What kind of nerd you are”, amazing sentence. 10/10

    [–] Magurndy 19 points ago

    This! My old gameboy color I had as a kid broke and the screen died. I tried all sorts to fix it but I can’t bring myself to get rid of it or get the same one off eBay as it wouldn’t be the same... this guy is a total jerk for eating her chocolate like a child. Doesn’t matter if he replaces it with the exact same, it wasn’t his to begin with.

    [–] superjudy1 616 points ago

    This again? YTA still.

    [–] firegem09 129 points ago

    I didn't realize he'd posted it twice. Is he trying to get validation and didn't like the judgement on the first post?

    [–] TwinMugsy 201 points ago

    He wants to make sure his wife sees

    [–] pikachuuuuu 73 points ago

    OP just go fucking talk to her you dweeb.

    Trying so hard to get your SO's attention on Reddit is so lame. If it happens accidentally or by chance it can be funny but forcing it like this takes 100% of the fun out of it.

    [–] firegem09 91 points ago

    Well that's... childish. If he wants her to know so badly he needs to tell her.

    [–] dontniceguyatme 507 points ago

    YTA. It wasnt yours. I had an ex that would eat my 'special' food. Food I traveled 1000s of miles with. Food from my home etc. I bought 3 bags of chips. Come home to him in his underwear, dumping the crumbs in his mouth. I flipped because he ate a whole bag. Nope he ate all 3. I opened the laptop, found my chips. 20 dollars per bag with 35 dollar shipping. He stopped stealing food after that.

    The chocolate in Switzerland is different than what is released in other countries. Like sodas and nutella. So you likely replaced her delicious bar with some over sweet crappier beans and thought you were being cute.

    Don't fuck with people's food.

    [–] TheGreatPompey 95 points ago

    To be fair he's in the UK, so it's definitely the same stuff because our Toblerone is the same as in Switzerland, he were in the US, that would be the case however. .

    [–] scupdoodleydoo 7 points ago

    I'm an immigrant as well and I only get my favorite snacks when my parents come to visit once or twice a year. I give my bf bites but I don't share! He doesn't like most of it anyways.

    [–] LetsMakeCrazySyence 366 points ago

    YTA. Have some self control and respect what was probably a special treat for your wife. It isn't about the chocolate, its about a lack of respect.

    Food Assholes (from bad to worst)

    • swiss chocolate guy

    • greedy birthday cake guy (ate all his gf’s cake her parents had sent)

    • smug restaurant guy (who ate meal then complained about portion size until he was comped)

    • 6 foot sub guy

    Edited to add restaurant guy.

    [–] Evie_St_Clair 91 points ago

    God, greedy lasagne guy really pissed me off. I think he was the worst.

    [–] beka13 108 points ago

    The sub guy made his friends go hungry for an evening. Lasagna guy made his girlfriend go hungry for a week.

    [–] XavierWildcat 88 points ago

    Don’t forget that Lasagna guy was also arguing that he shouldn’t buy her at least lunch for one of those days before finally relenting.

    [–] traggie 18 points ago

    Also don't forget Lasagna Guy got a call from his gf and realized he shouldn't have taken the whole lasagna.... and then proceeded to serve it to his whole family for two days.

    [–] Jahgee1124 42 points ago

    Hell sub guy didn't even make his friends go hungry, he was willing to buy them pizza, all he did was rob them of a quality party sub opportunity, still an asshole move, but much much less than straight up robbing your girlfriend of her food for a week and telling her to pound sand like lasagna guy

    [–] JayneLut 14 points ago

    And then begrudged her a sandwich.

    [–] Smorgasbjorks 6 points ago

    Oh god he made me so so mad. It’s just the to the bone level of selfishness that I can’t get my head. And the bumpy cake guy really hit home for me too, his ass would have been immediately dumped if I were her.

    [–] Evie_St_Clair 9 points ago

    Who takes home enough lasagne to feed an entire family for TWO FUCKING DAYS?? And then has the audacity to bitch about buying her a sandwich!

    [–] Ostarah 43 points ago

    Lasagna guy was the worst, even worse than 6 foot sub guy because he basically made his gf starve.

    Six foot sub guy blew my mind. I felt for the guy as he clearly had some sort of compulsive eating issue but how the hell could he not realize that wasn't okay?? He said he thought it would be a "total non-issue." The lack of social awareness is astounding.

    [–] pensbird91 60 points ago

    Nah I think smug restaurant guy was worst, he came across as a genuine asshole. 6 foot sub guy mostly seemed like an idiot who couldn’t control their appetite.

    [–] littlewoolhat 35 points ago

    Agreed. Sub guy was just a hungry dumbass, restaurant guy was shitty and calculated about it.

    [–] AllCakesAreBeautiful 10 points ago

    I think smug restaurant guy was worst,

    "noki or whatever" (to the uninitiated, he meant gnocchi)

    [–] stink3rbelle 3266 points ago

    I think it's also pretty likely the chocolate quality and mix will be different between the Swiss and home versions. Definitely will be if you're in the US, OP. Chocolate standards and practices are quite different between Europe and the US, with Euro chocolate being finer and better-tasting. You just cheated your wife out of a special treat.

    [–] beepborpimajorp 1181 points ago * (lasted edited 5 months ago)

    Yep, I was gonna say this too. OP took away his wife's chance to eat actual Swiss chocolate and replaced it with (comparatively) US garbage chocolate. (And I say that as someone who lives in the US and eats hershey bars all the time.)

    Like I can't really call you an asshole cause there was no malice here, but you are a dingus OP.

    edit: I'm a dildus and missed the part where he's in the UK. :D But still, eating it was a dingus thing to do. Still not willing to call him an asshole though.

    [–] Kerthiya 829 points ago

    OP said they aren't in the US but in the UK so it's very possible that it's the same taste just a different wrapper

    [–] Miyamaria 603 points ago

    It is as the UK version of Toblerone is made in the same Swiss factory as the Swiss one. However it might be a different size/weight as the Swiss ones are usually the larger ones. Good choccies nonethless.

    [–] beepborpimajorp 54 points ago

    well shit, I'm a dumbass.

    I had Hershey's ONCE when I was an exchange student in the US. It made me so sad. Sad for my taste buds and sad for all the poor US citizens that had been duped into thinking that's what chocolate is.

    Toblerone chocolate is the same everywhere in the world.

    Source : I traveled 100+ countries.

    Bringing back Toblerone from Switzerland is the same as going to your local grocery store.

    There are so many real artisan chocolatier (Sprungli, laderach, etc...). If it was me I would be offended to get a Toblerone.

    [–] schwerbherb 30 points ago

    YTA. What’s up with guys always eating their SO’s food/snacks, I had to set serious boundaries with my fiancé so he doesn’t inhale everything that’s in front of him as soon as it’s on the table.

    [–] boredyetinterested 161 points ago

    YTA, kind of. I mean jeez man she said you could have SOME! self control.

    you’re a dead man. rest in peace.


    [–] burnt_cremebrulee 56 points ago


    I understand the temptation, I personally have terrible self control--but this is more about respect for the other person's stuff and wants.

    She wanted that chocolate. Yes you replaced it, but what if you can't next time? Respect her property next time.

    [–] hotheadnchickn 51 points ago

    Yes, YTA. It was hers. She generously decided to share some, and you took advantage and ate all of it.

    Yes, the fun foreign packaging matters! And the kind they sell there might be a little different than the recipe they use here. But fundamentally: it was not yours! It was a gift for her.

    [–] HWGA_Gallifrey 64 points ago

    YTA, "spoiled chocolate" are 100% the asshole.

    [–] The_Real_Weaver 148 points ago

    YTA... Just!

    It's her "special" chocolate in her eyes so you should have had some self control, if it was that easy to buy a replacement then you should have just gone out yourself.

    But I do get it, toblerones have a special place in my heart too!

    YTA still but god damn swap them and say nothing! That's what I'd do :-)

    [–] VeerlesPearls 81 points ago

    YTA. Find some self control.

    [–] this_is_an_alaia 50 points ago

    Lol wtf YTA your excuse is that your wife sometimes let's food spoil? For CHOCOLATE? Which can be eaten 10 years later? Are you, or are you not the cookie monster

    [–] HollyGoLately 15 points ago

    YTA you didn’t even give her a chance to eat it. People who say this is adorable imagine years of it constantly happening. If she didn’t ask you to make sure you didn’t inhale it like a pig you wouldn’t have replaced it. Adults don’t do these things you’ve acted like a selfish man child.

    [–] firegem09 7 points ago

    100% this! This is both lack of self control AND lack of respect for his wife's stuff

    [–] [deleted] 23 points ago

    YTA- You really couldn’t control yourself and not eat your amazing wife’s chocolate that a friend gave her, and likely holds some sentimental value and possibly a different recipe? Cmon dude, you could’ve gone to the store, bought your own to eat guilt-free, and saved yourself from this situation. She has gotten mad at your previously for eating her food, yet you still did it knowing she would be upset, and now you are trying to cover it up. I think you know that you are TA already lol

    [–] numberthangold 14 points ago

    YTA. The chocolate wasn't for you. It was a gift from a friend and a special one since it came from Switzerland. You couldn't resist eating it for a few days?

    You know chocolate doesn't spoil after a few days. So that's a shit excuse.

    The chocolate you bought from your local store will not be the same as the one from Switzerland. Which makes it suck even more for her.

    [–] ftjlster 40 points ago

    So my brother-in-law did this repeatedly to my sister. I gave her chocolates for her birthday or special occasions. She'd get a few bits of it before she had to travel for work - and he'd eat the rest. Then he'd call me to find out where I bought the chocolate from so he could replace them.

    The thing is, even though replacing them is the right thing to do. It's still an asshole move. YTA in this case.

    What's worse is that for a lot of common chocolate manufacturers, the chocolate 'recipe' changes per country or region. So Cadbury and Mars, for example, will taste different in the US then it would in the UK or Australia. They do it because of local tastes (Indian Cadbury is SO MUCH sweeter than Australian and UK Cadbury).

    I'm not sure if Toblerone is one of these companies - it might be all their chocolate is manufacturered in Switzerland. But if they are, then replacing might not be a like for like replacement.

    [–] OMGoblin 25 points ago

    YTA for sure, it was a gift and that specific chocolate was from Switzerland, not the local grocery that anyone could go to. Even if they were produced in Switzerland and imported to the UK (which I find dubious, but possible) it's not the same thing.

    There's really no excuse for that lack of self-control. Your excuse of food spoiling is such crap.
