Mother-in-Law eats all dinner, takes leftovers and leaves me hungry 😡

We've all heard of mother-in-law horror stories, but this one takes the cake (or in this case, the Swedish meatballs). A woman shares her frustrating experience of cooking dinner for her family and mother-in-law, only to have her MIL eat all of her portion and take the leftovers for herself.

The woman is left hungry and annoyed, but things escalate when her MIL refuses to apologize and instead calls her an a**hole. To make matters worse, she posts about it on social media and people are taking her side. As we dive into the comments and reactions, let's explore who's really the a**hole in this situation.

Is it the pregnant woman who didn't cook enough, or the MIL who took it upon herself to eat all the food and leave her daughter-in-law without a meal? Here's what Reddit had to say.

MIL intentionally took and offered back pregnant OP's food. NTA.
