The original poster (user account name u/jerryyyyyy1) pinned her story on one of the top-trending subreddits – the r/AmItheA**hole community to ask if she deserved to be belittled by her lover and his family. The couple had a small puppy whom the OP was in charge of feeding. She didn’t mind using a metal spoon to pick the dog food out of containers and convinced her man it was hygienic. However, his mom didn’t think so and called her nasty.
The OP soon forgot about the word and repeated her puppy feeding chore with a kitchen utensil, which became a needle in the boyfriend’s eyes. He assumed she was trying to oppose his mom lowly because she was annoyed by her words. They wanted to solve the trouble by getting a new scoop for the pup. But none of them stepped back and took the shopping duty.
In the comment section below the pinned post, Reddit found the OP reasonable. It might be her little bad habit. But it wasn’t near the disgusting level that deserved the a-word. They confessed that they even had worse habits, yet they managed to keep everything clean. To be honest, they thought the OP’s dog food spoon was less contaminated than those that were put in human mouths. Besides, they cited industrial qualified pet foods were always sterilized, which meant they were not full of disgusting germs.
Plus, Redditors agreed that the boyfriend should go shopping for the puppy scoop. But if the OP was “generous” with him, she could go to the store, and buy a high-quality sweet table set for the puppy that the human one could never be comparable to. They guessed it would poke him in the eye even more since he didn’t care about the sanitary but defended his mom’s opinion and fault found the OP.
