My partner is yelling at me for asking for my chips back

Tonight we went to my partner's brother's house for a BBQ and to watch the fireworks from his bakyard. We had asked what we could bring and they kept telling us to bring nothing as they had everything covered. Well, we couldn't really show up empty-handed so I brought two bags of chips. It turns out they weren't really needed as they already had an elobaret spread with all sorts of chips and dips, gaucolmoly, hummus, cheeseballs, etc. No one touched my Lay's but my Cool Ranch Doritos were a hit as I guess the plain tortilla chips they provided were too plain, haha.

As we were leaving, I mentioned that I should bring the unopened bag of Lay's home since it was completely unopened and perfectly untouched. I figured even if I don't eat them later I could return it to the store. It's not like they were going to eat them since they had so much of their other chips leftover. The brother's wife kept insisting I take them and to take the half bag of Cool Ranch Doritos back too. She kept saying how she was going to gain too much weight if we left them there. After much back and forth and her being very persistant, I agreed and took them.

Now back in the car on the drive back, all hell breaks loose as my partner yells at me for taking the chips. I told him that she kept insisting I take them. It would have been rude to keep arguing with her. He kept saying it's bad etiquette to take back a hostess gift. I kept saying she insisted and was being very pushy and it's bad etiquette to argue with a host. He's saying I'm making him look bad to his family. Now we're still arguing and I can't even sleep. Instead I'm sitting here typing this while eating my Lay's. Who's right in this situation?

YOU mentioned taking the chips home with you first. Now that should be in the 'tacky tells' thread.

Seriously, you get invited, the hosts invest the money into a big spread and all you think about is getting your fucking bag of Lays back? As your partner I'd have been mortified, do you bring your Tupperware to wedding buffets tool?

I LOVE the wife though, "Sure, take your Lays , take the half eaten bag of Doritos too! " You wanted to behave like trash and she made sure you did.

OP, if this "issue" is causing serious friction and high-volume arguments between you and your partner, you both need therapy.

I recommend doing it separately, not as a couple, because although you deserve each other and should therefore remain a couple, no therapist should have to deal with both of you at once.

After a few months of therapy, please come back and regale us all with a new and improved scenario illustrating how you have both grown and now argue only about important things, like what to bring to a pot luck.

R22, I only mentioned it because I saw that the bag was completely untouched and UNOPENED! I hate to see food wasted, espeally something that is completely new and unopened. She said she was on a diet and didn't want to get fat so she was going to waste them and throw them away. Why would she throw them away when I can have them?

Or the chips you brought did not go with the SIL's Sole Veronique and she immediately hid them.

I never met anyone who would take chips back to the store.

Your partner is wrong and right. Technically you don't take a hostess gift back. But when the Hostess insists and insists and it's just a bag of chips it's not even worth a conversation. Why is your partner making this a big issue? That is the better question. It's not a Right or Wrong issue. It's a relationship issue and it's about the dynamics of his relationship with his family.

The best solution here is to turn the negative into a positive. Create some good karma in this world by donating the unopened bag of Lays potato chips to a near-by food shelter. I can't imagine your partner having a problem with that. The bonus part of this small gesture, in addition to making the world a slightly better place, is that you get the upper hand of making your partner feel like a real douche bag since you did something altruistic with the bag of Lays brand potato chips. Now, as for the Cool Ranch Doritos...since the bag was already open and half-eaten it's perfectly acceptable for you to finish eating the bag. It would be tacky to donate a half-eaten bag of Cool Ranch Doritos to a food shelter.

If your partner for some reason is historically opposed to food shelters, you should plan a nice outing at the local park with your partner. Take the the bag of Lays brand potato chips with you and when you get to the duck pond, the two of you can have a few special moments feeding the potato chips to the ducks. You might even want to hire a photographer to capture the moment. If any of the photos turn out nice (maybe some soft gauzy sunlight in the background as you and your partner smile and laugh while feeding the ducks) you can use that pic on your Christmas card later this year.

Why is it so hard for millennials to take a negative and turn it into something positive?

OP. Ypu need to patch things up with your partner. here's what you do. Tell him you want to play a fame. Get him naked and tie him to your bed.

[quote] He kept saying it's bad etiquette to take back a hostess gift.

Of course it fucking is. Gifts - especially hostess gifts - should be given without regard for whether or how they they are used. Like a bottle of wine or a vase of flowers, gifts are given freely. A gift given is a gift gone; it's not yours after you give it away. Forget about it.

If it's not used immediately, assume that your hosts will find some use for it later, or regift it to an enemy, or feed it to their free-range chickens, or toss it straight into the rubbish bin. It's not your concern. You gave a gift as a symbol of friendship and gratitude, not to be a fucking cunt about policing the gift and making sure that the lucky recipients eat every fucking mouthful of your gift while you watch.

Of course this never happened...

Sorry for the late reply. I accidently fell asleep on the coach after I polished off the bag and had myself a good cry.

R34, R35, there might have been onion dip there. As I said, there were a lot of differnet kinds of dips and hummus's and stuff like that. I didn't get a chance to sample each one. Maybe next time.

R38, I have never ever in my life referred to Doritos as ethnic food. I'm not a rube.

R41, domestic violance is never funny.

R57, It's not like I make a habit out of returning things to the store. I will only return something if it's completely new and UNOPENED and if I have a RECEIPT! It's usually not a problem if I have a receipt.

R71, thank you! Exactly!

R77, it's not the price of the gift, it's the principal! And yes, she didn't want temptation so what could I do but give in to her? It's not like I asked for her leftover chips and dips.

OP, it was a mistake to ask for the chips back. It's just not done. Even though the host might have gotten 8 bags of chips, you still shouldn't ask for them.

You might be so close to the family (though it seems not in this case) that it still seems like you're all one entity, but you're not. And this is the kind of thing people will latch on to if they are looking for an excuse to nurse a resentment.

I do the reverse thing. My sister is very frugal because she has to be because of her income and spending. So, when I find I have excess household items, I bring them and stash them in her closets. She might not even know that she got extra light bulbs or cleaning supplies from the majic fairy. But it doesn't matter. I don't like throwing perfectly good things away, and she needs them, so I do it.

by Anonymousreply 14507/05/2016

R106: Yes, [R96] is right. In the doorman thread, OP would reply to long lists of quotes from other posters, and deny knowledge of pre-existing threads referenced. Caught and done.

The fact that you were even contemplating returning the bag of chips to the store is evidence enough that you're an insufferable tightwad. She, your BF and many others have likely already noticed that about you, which is why she insisted on you taking them home with you. You may have gotten your chips back, but you also got read for being selfish, stingy, and inconsiderate.
