Picture this: You're the one in charge of planning, shopping, and cooking dinner for your family six days a week. 🍽️ On the seventh day, your partner is supposed to take over, giving you a well-deserved break. But what if, on that one day, your partner decides they're not going to do anything? 😱 That's the dilemma our protagonist, the Culinary Queen, finds herself in. With her hubby refusing to cook or pick up takeout, she's left to wonder if she'd be in the wrong for ordering food just for herself. 🤔 Let's dive into the story and find out what happened...

👩‍🍳 Culinary Queen vs. Lazy Hubby: The Takeout Showdown

Our Culinary Queen has a simple arrangement with her husband: she takes care of dinner six days a week, while he's responsible for the seventh day. 📅 But when Day 7 rolls around, Lazy Hubby isn't in the mood to cook or pick up takeout. 😒 As the clock ticks and hunger sets in, Culinary Queen suspects he's waiting for her to cave and handle dinner herself. 💭 Fed up, she decides to order takeout just for herself, refusing to reward his behavior. ⛔️ After some disbelief, Lazy Hubby eventually calls in his own order and picks up both meals, apologizing for his laziness. 🙏 All's well that ends well, but let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 💬

Fair judgment. He's the a**hole for not following the agreement. 🙅🏼
