🍜 Noodle Dish Drama: Was Honesty the Best Policy?

Our young protagonist from Denmark found themselves in a classic family dilemma when their mom cooked up a noodle dish they didn't like. 😬 Despite knowing her child's aversion to this particular meal, Mom insisted it was different this time. After eating it, our honest hero gave a lukewarm response, saying it was "better than nothing." The next day, they took the leftovers for lunch, and when Mom asked if they liked it now, they flat out said, "No." 😯 This led to Mom accusing them of rudeness and giving them the silent treatment. 🤐 Our protagonist feels guilty but stands by their belief that honesty is the best policy. So, what does the internet think of this situation? Let's see what people have to say... 🧐
