  • Happened to me many times. I actually eat it, finish everything in the plate, even though it tasted terrible and I wanted to go in the bathroom and throw up..😳🙊
    Because, I think it's really rude and disrespectful to not eat the food and get up from the chair. I value the effort someone put into making the dinner and invited me. I think it's a sweet gesture, and I appreciate it. So, I just eat slowly.. eat everything on the plate and thank them, lie to them, that I really love it.

    • By the way, I'm living with a friend. She's not really a good cook. She get this "Todayyy, I'm in the mood to cook something awesome... like every week. I try to help her cook, but sometimes she just want me to sit and let her do all the cooking, lol. So, when she finally cooks and say breakfast/lunch/dinner is ready. I see her face lit up n happiness.. And joy. I just smile and eat the food. Say white lies. Cause I don't want to hurt her feelings. I appreciate the effort she put and time she spent in kitchen.

    • Show All
    • Eat slow is certainly good advice

    • Thank you, Toad!

      @Fortes lol, thanks :-') it works for me. If I try to hurry up, eat quickly, it makes me want to throw up.

  • I would be respectful, eat very little, offer to help clean up, and say thank you when I leave.

    I would refrain from lying about the food, and if they have the poor taste to question my appetite, say my eyes were biggest as my stomach, or I just can't eat as much as I thought, but you guys are so sweet and such gracious hosts.

    Then, next time you're invited, or even before then if you're so inclined, you insist on returning the favor, and you cook the damn food

  • Lmao this has happened to me. I eat as much as I can and in the middle of the meal I ask for pain killers. Then I blame my lack of appetite on my period 😀 works like a charm

  • Unless it is some kind of insects, weird animals, raw, expired or unclean food, I would force myself to eat it and drink lots of water or juice after that maybe even eat some minties. Because you know what? Some people consider it rude if they invite you, and you don't finish you plate. If you have the choice, just take a little in your plate so you finish it all.

  • Whoever that has the guts to ask me over to eat must have known that I'm really a picky eater, so they'd definitely know.

  • Hot sauce. Smother that shit in hot sauce and power through it. I'd tell them it's horrible though, so they know to fix it.

  • Eat it and drink a sip of water afterwards to help it go down. Let's hope the water does not taste like gasoline

    I'd probably fake sickness or pretend like I have a emergency to get to.

  • Depends on how good of a friend.

    Just met - pretend it's not horrible

    Friends - check and see if they make a weird face while eating, bring it up if they do.

    Best friend - "Dude, how the hell do you dick up pizza? This is worse than you hitting on women"

  • I'll actually eat it anyway because I feel it is respectful to do so. I feel bad asking for things when I'm eating at someone's house so rejecting things is just unthinkable to me lol

  • Attempt to eat, little by little and very slowly. No need to be blatantly disrespectful even though it's not the greatest tasting.

    • So what would you do? just tell them that?

    • Or make up another medical reason so that I can't eat it. Or I'm a vegetarian. Or a jew. I know enough hebrew how to pass as one.

  • I would pretend it wasn't.
