Dad orders uninvited Christmas guests to leave after they complain about his roast

A dad preparing Christmas dinner assumed he’d only be cooking for himself, his mother, his wife, and his son – so was not best pleased when a group of uninvited relatives turned up and complained about his cooking

While rustling up Christmas dinner for himself, his mother, his wife, and his son, a cheffy dad says he pulled out all the stops, splashing out on 12lb worth of bone-in prime rib roasts. Little did he know that a group of uninvited guests would be joining their small party, offering their uncalled-for criticism of his culinary skills.

According to this foodie, his local butcher had a brilliant seasonal deal on, with the rib roasts selling for just £6.63 ($7.99) per pound. He, therefore, decided to ‘splurge’, imagining they would have ‘a huge cut’ for their festive feast, with plenty left over to snack on and to make Philly beef sandwiches in the week that followed.

Unfortunately, celebrations took a decidedly different turn after his mother decided to invite his cousin, her husband, and their three sons to join them. These relatives are said to have ‘randomly showed up in town’, and had already gotten into a fight with their own mother that very same day. It wasn’t long before they started making their precise food preferences known.

Taking to Reddit, the unnamed dad, who goes by the username u/Jalopy_Submarine, recalled: “They wanted me to put the whole roast in before slicing it and cook the whole thing to medium well done. I offered to slice and cook individual slices and that is where the point of contention came from. It was their way or no way.”

The visiting cousins, who he has not seen or spoken to in years, were not happy at all when he cooked the meat rare, and things soon got heated.

Turning to fellow Reddit users for their thoughts on the matter, he continued: “I told them I would throw it on the grill a bit. That was not good enough so I told them to leave and my mother got upset with me for throwing them out on Christmas. Keep in mind I have not seen or talked to them in seven years.”

One person commented: “I mean, it’s really an accomplishment for the cousin’s family to have gotten kicked out of two Christmas dinners on the same day. I assume they were meant to eat at their mother’s, screwed that up, and then went on to your house to sow chaos elsewhere.”

Another gasped: “Uninvited guests who you haven’t seen in seven years turn up at your home, unannounced, then have the gall to complain about the free food they’re served? You were completely in the right throwing them out. I bet they did the same thing (or worse) and that’s why they were pitched out of their own mother’s home.”
