A polite young man asked Redditors for opinions after his roommate got angry about his cooking. It was who he was feeding that was the problem. Here is the full story.
Can’t Hide That Southern Charm
OP is a 21-year-old man who grew up in Texas and Louisiana.
By his own account, there is nothing he can do to hide his Southern hospitality and charm.
They Want to Be Around Him
That means OP sticks out like a sore thumb now that he’s living on the east coast to attend culinary school.
His friendly, laid-back nature makes him a magnet for people of all types.
He’s Always Cooking Something Up
And OP has been cooking since he was tall enough to reach the stove.
It’s one of his passions in life, which is why he’s pursuing it as a profession.
He Shares It All
OP isn’t stingy with his talents, either, and feeds anyone who enters his circle as well as he can afford to.
They Shared a Need
When OP moved east, he needed a place to stay.
He met another young man who was searching for a roommate, and they decided to get an apartment together.
They Aren’t Great Friends
OP and his roommate aren’t great friends, but they do hang out quite a bit.
They like to watch movies at home and occasionally go out to a bar together.
But They Eat Together
And OP’s roommate is pretty happy with his cooking.
OP cooks for himself a lot, and he usually makes enough for his roomie, too.
He’ll Make Your Favorite
Whenever someone comes over to visit, OP also makes sure to cook something he knows they like.
Pound cake is a favorite of his roommate’s parents, for example.
She Moved In
The problems started when the roommate’s girlfriend moved in for a couple of weeks during a school break.
They had been dating for about 6 months at the time, and OP had only met her in passing.
He Made Her Favorite
One day, the girlfriend mentioned that she liked a certain kind of cheesecake.
OP took note and baked that treat, then offered it up to his roommate and his girlfriend.
He Got Mad About It
The girlfriend was thrilled, but OP’s roommate got upset about the cheesecake.
His Bread Was Super Annoying
A few days later, the roommate told OP that all his girlfriend could do was talk about how great OP’s fresh baked bread was.
The roommate was beyond annoyed.
Don’t Look Into Her Eyes
Of course, OP told his roomie that he was just being polite, but the other young man wasn’t buying it.
He kept right on complaining and even told OP it was inappropriate for him to look his girlfriend in the eyes when they were talking.
He’s Walking on Eggshells
It didn’t stop with just food and conversation, either.
OP feels like he can’t do anything around the house now with setting off his roommate.
He Was Willing to Help
One day, OP was washing his car and asked if the roommate and his girlfriend wanted him to wash theirs, too.
He Didn’t Want Any Help
OP could see the young woman was about to say yes, but then her boyfriend gave her a stern look, and she said no thanks.
She Might Ogle Him
And when OP went out to mow the lawn while the roommate’s girlfriend was there, the roommate stopped him and said he’d do it instead.
He’s Not Trying to One-Up Anyone
OP isn’t trying to make his roommate look bad, but he’s sure that’s what the other young man thinks.
Now, OP wonders if maybe he should be looking for a different roommate.
He’s a Great Dude
Redditors don’t see anything wrong with the way OP treats his guests, including the roommate’s girlfriend.
Most of them think he sounds charming, and some not-so-jokingly want to know if will cook for them.
He’s Insecure and Jealous
The overall sentiment is that OP’s roommate is insecure and jealous, and that he probably won’t be with his girlfriend long, anyway.
