Would You Make Your Teenager Buy Home Snacks?

Jake explained that his father is a good guy but has an appetite for devouring everything if given a chance. Jake volunteered that he does his best to be supportive and of his fair share around their home, including chores and laundry.

He works at a delicious kebab place and often brings them home for himself and his dad. Because his dad cannot eat the garlic cilantro sauce, Jake is kind enough to be it on the side.

So a few weeks ago, he brought home their kebobs and put them in the fridge for later when he got hungry. However, his father had eaten them when he went to retrieve them and left him nothing.

Jake confessed that now he soaks his kebobs in the cilantro sauce so that his dad cannot eat his again. Additionally, many of his snacks are missing from the pantry. So he asked his dad if he could use the grocery budget to pick up these snacks they both enjoy, and his father told him, “NO!”

So Jake began shopping carefully, only buying snacks with ingredients his dad could not eat. He has a soy allergy. So Jake ensures that his stuff with soy is well labeled and keeps it in his room away from the other food.

This Is An Odd Dynamic Nobody understood dad in this comment section! Many agreed that the dynamic of their relationship is odd. One elaborated that if the father deserves snacks, he should buy them himself and supply them for his teenage son.
