Dad buys fridge safe to stop his fiancée and kids from stealing his chocolate

Twisted: Unserious food tastes seriously good.

We all have little things that grate on us – no matter how trivial they may seem to other people. Personally, some of my biggest pet peeves centre around food – and more specifically other people eating the food that I picked from a menu, paid for and can generally eat inordinate amounts of.

I’m also not too keen on people sneaking large chunks or, god forbid, whole amounts of food that I placed in the fridge – for my consumption and my consumption and only.

At the same time, I do consider myself to be a fairly reasonable person. So when I heard about a dad who went to the trouble of buying himself a fridge safe all so that he could stop his fiancée and kids from ‘stealing’ his chocolate, a part of me could totally relate… and the other part thought it was hilariously petty.

Anyway, the dad in question, Dave Lowe, has now gone viral for his controversial kitchen etiquette. And that’s because his fiancée, Stacey Lowe, wrote a post slamming her man for his behaviour, which she refers to as “breakup material”.

Take a read of Stacey’s scathing post in full:

“So this is what it has come too! You buy a house together, have a child together, get engaged, are planning a wedding and doing your house up and this happens! Dave goes and buys a f**kin fridge safe because he’s an arsehole and doesn’t want to share his chocolate with me anymore! Anyone want him? Surely this is breakup material right?! P**ck!”

Since being shared last Thursday, the post has received a staggering 55k shares and 106k comments.

Opinions on the matter varied greatly. While a number of commenters wholeheartedly agreed with Dave, others felt he was being more than a tad unreasonable.

“Why would anyone do this to their spouse?” one user asked, while another disagreed, writing: “Stop stealing his chocolate, easy.”

Mostly, people just found the situation hilarious and commended the dad for giving them the idea to get their very own fridge safe.
