How Do You Turn Down Someone's Food Without Offending Them?? by Sermwell(m): 10:41am On Jul 26
I have cause to visit Lagos in order to secure the bail of a younger one who got into trouble. My cousin who stays in Lagos insisted I stay with him. He has a wife and 3 kids.

The problem now is that I don't think his wife knows how to cook!! I have had running stomach eating her food since 4 days ago. I tried to turn down her food last night but it didn't go well as she pleaded with me to eat which I did. I had stomach upset through out the night. I just can't imagine eating her food again till I leave.

Please how do I refuse her food without sounding offensive??

Simply ensure you go out in the evening...eat out and buy snack for them at home.
If she brings food, tell her you ate outside and brought snacks for them.

Or you inform them you will not be back early so that they don't prepare your food.

But most important thing is to get done with what you went there to do!

You don't really need to refuse her food

Just get tetracycline and flagyl on hand, once you eat you take your drugs

Tell her na.

When next she brings her junk to your face tell you're not interested. Say it this way hanty, I'm tired of visiting the toilet due to the junk you've been feeding me with.

Thank me later.


PS: Hanty might even be a nairalander forming chief chef.

Bad cooks everywhere parading themselves as wives/mothers.

Only God knows how the husband is coping.

Your cousin is the best person to consult. He knows his wife better than anyone else here, so talk to him and come up with an idea or solution together.

Just pick a day.. Before she go cook lunch or dinner, step out. Get foods that suit you. Carry ham come home and eat while they see..

Day do ham little by little like that.. She'll get the message! You don't need say a word!

Why would anybody feel offended in this hard time? Now a days , telling someone you are not eating is a blessing in disguise for the owner of the food

That is if I am not hungry.

I hardly eat outside my home anyways. If I have eaten before I left home, there is nothing you can do to persuade me to eat at your home. I dont care if you are offended.

Tell her you're on 30 days dry fasting.. see question

Don't bother, I've eaten will do. Then look for a convenient place to get your food. you can take tea or coffee for breakfast and leave for the day's business.
