Woman Takes Along Her Husband For An Important Dinner At Her New Boss’ House, Doesn’t Expect It To End Like This

There are times in life where you need to be at your very best, make a great impression and start off in the best possible way. Meeting your new boss for dinner at her place can be considered as one of these occasions.

This is the story of a supportive man, accompanying his nervous wife to dinner with her boss at her brand new job. Sounds like a pretty cool guy right? Turns out, not so much. When confronted with a raw meat problem (think Mr. Bean, hiding little pieces of his steak tartar all over his table) he decided instead to use a less sophisticated and probably even dumber approach.

Scroll down below to read how this epic tale unfolded, first from the point of view of the husband, and then his wife. Bon appetit!

This supportive husband went along with his wife to her boss’ house for dinner, eager to make a good impression

OMGosh this is without a doubt the absolutely funniest story I've ever read on Bored Panda. I was laughing so hard that my pets woke up and my aide came running from the other room to see if I was OK. I could hardly stop laughing. It reminded me of the time my husband wanted me to try escargot at this fancy French restaurant in Dallas. I kept protesting because I'm terrified of anything that slithers. Finally I agreed to at least try a tiny bite but, I made it very clear that I would cut the bite myself. So my husband removed the snail from the shell and placed it on the small plate in front of me. I swallowed a few times before sticking it with my fork. As soon as I cut into the snail it went flying off my plate acrosss the table beside me. The man looked at it then looked at me and I died a thousand deaths as I began apologizing profusely for the incident. He was very gracious and even smiled at me. Then I turned on my husband for insisting that I taste a snail in the first place!

Like this couple, my goofy (but well-mannered) husband and I have been in precarious situations but none that were this funny. Like the wife here, I would not have been comfortable if he told her it was under-cooked to his liking. When you are trying to make a good impression and a guest at someone's home, you simply DON"T send the food back. I would have split mine with him in her presence with an excuse that "the food always tastes better off of his plate," sort of thing. Or, simply made the switch for mine to his. Telling her I like my meat rare and he likes his more well done. The boss probably gave him the bigger cut of meat but cooked it for the same amount of time as the other 2. A simple mistake on her behalf too. The proper thing for the boss would have been to ask how her guests liked their meat cooked. :) Another funny ending would be if the window were open and it hit someone on the sidewalk. Seeing the window open, went up and said something, steak in hand.

I don't believe a word of this, sorry. You'd actually attempt to throw a steak out the window? 1) You wouldn't tell your wife what was happening before you threw it? 2) Why not walk to the window and not risk missing the window? 3) Why not man up and tell your host about the steak? A good host would be more than willing to fix what was obviously a mistake. 4) If, as you said, it was a huge steak and your host was gone for just a moment, you don't think she would wonder how you ate it so quickly? Yeah, I'm calling big time BS on this story.

I find this rather sad. Do we not all hate such akward, stilted, forced community? Making good impressions for the sake of it? Several people being together "because" but everyone just hating it? Why not avoid it? I think this wife should love her husband very much for going through it and trying to make the bets of it. Not stopping him from eating the steak afterwards is just cruel, and also wrong from the boss. Gosh, we have so many problems in this world, and yet so much joy, why live through such shitty situations?

The husband was the 'dumb shit?' It's more like the dumb cunt who didn't even bother to ask how the husband wanted the steak, and didn't even cook it properly. And he's not 'dumb' if he genuinely thought the window was open. He doesn't work for the idiot, so why should he give shit about what she thinks, especially if she can't cook worth a shit? No wonder she's single. You women are some cunts sometimes, seriously.

1st - I am surprised that the hostess did not ask how her guests wanted their steaks cooked. I would never assume that a rare or medium rare steak is okay. 2nd - I don't understand why this man thought is was not okay to mention that his steak was undercooked and could he grill it a little longer himself so the ladies could just talk.

I actually understand the husband's reaction. I probably would have reacted in a similar way. :) It's easy to give advice in hindsight, but it's not fair, because one never knows what is going through the mind of another. Besides, he was trying to diffuse the situation in his own unique way, whilst trying not to embarrass his wife's boss and potentially strain the relationship between his wife and her boss. That shows sensitivity, which got expressed through an unconventional solution to a problem. :)

I would have been disgusted if I were served that steak. When I eat at a restaurant I have steak medium well, and because tapeworm is common in my country when I eat at a person's home I will not eat any meat unless it is well done.

After he cleaned up the window, he should have put it back on the stove (to clean the steak) - would have prevented him from eating steak tar-tar.

Well I've never eaten a grilled steak in the first place, mine are always fried, in a frying pan, with onions, and they are cooked slowly until there isn't a trace of red to be seen ANYWHERE. So if I'd been presented with that I would most probably have disappeared into the toilet to be sick :-(

Helga DeMonaco

First, the boss could not have hosted many parties. Who prepares a steak for first-time guests without asking how "done" they prefer their steaks ( I hope she at least asked the wife IF they eat meat). Secondly, as the guest cuts into the meat, I would ask if it was done to their liking. Lastly if it is too rare, I would gladly toss it back on the grill. Good steak is expensive, lovely and tasty. It's a shame when someone wastes it.....

Helga DeMonaco

First, the boss could not have entertained often if she didn't bother to ask her guests how they like their steaks ( hopefully she asked the wife if the ate meat at least). Secondly, when her guests cut into the steak, she should have asked if it was done to their liking. And lastly if the husband had honestly told her it was a bit underdone for his liking, she would probably have cooked it a bit more. A good host/hostess finds pleasure in pleasing their guests.

This reads like a classic fake story, down to the second person account to back up the first-person account. Interesting how the backup story perfectly iverlaysmthe first—no altering point-of-view. The “wife” even chooses an account name that has no identity of her own “mrs_...” I’m sorry, but my b.s. meter is highly accurate and this story sets off the alarm as a classic try-to-turn-a-joke-into-a-true-story post.

Happened something similar to me in China. When the meal came, the main dish was ducks heads cut diagonally in two half's - to eat its face skin and... That big brain. Thats a common Chinese dish. Fearing my stomach would make me throw up and create a very embarrassing atmosphere in the room, I took the first discret chance to pass my bf that huge ducks head into his plate. He got pale and couldn't believe in what had just happened while I smiled totally satisfied. Thats called justice even why I was convinced to come. Later we both pointed the meal was delicious. One of us is such a lier, and I assure you it isn't me.

Clear the uneaten food from plates and rinse the plates off. Done looks like I ate it and I politely helped my host.

I would have thanked my wife's boss for cooking the steak the way I like it -- just heated enough to take the chill off it and be sure it won't bite back. If I'd been served one cooked "Texas-style" (you know, when it's dark brown, it's still cooking and when it's black and crispy, it's done), I would have eaten part of it, as another commenter suggested, and then said I was full. And before anyone gives me the utter BS about how I am endangering my health eating very rare meat, save your breath. I'm 72 years old, never get sick, used to eat steak tartare (back when you could trust your butcher), learned to eat sushi/sashimi in childhood from my Japanese aunt and ceviche from Latino friends, etc. Nearly every culture has some raw meat/fish dish, and those countries have fewer ills and better health than the US. Like the silly cr*p about butter and cheese -- ask the French!

OMGosh this is without a doubt the absolutely funniest story I've ever read on Bored Panda. I was laughing so hard that my pets woke up and my aide came running from the other room to see if I was OK. I could hardly stop laughing. It reminded me of the time my husband wanted me to try escargot at this fancy French restaurant in Dallas. I kept protesting because I'm terrified of anything that slithers. Finally I agreed to at least try a tiny bite but, I made it very clear that I would cut the bite myself. So my husband removed the snail from the shell and placed it on the small plate in front of me. I swallowed a few times before sticking it with my fork. As soon as I cut into the snail it went flying off my plate acrosss the table beside me. The man looked at it then looked at me and I died a thousand deaths as I began apologizing profusely for the incident. He was very gracious and even smiled at me. Then I turned on my husband for insisting that I taste a snail in the first place!

Like this couple, my goofy (but well-mannered) husband and I have been in precarious situations but none that were this funny. Like the wife here, I would not have been comfortable if he told her it was under-cooked to his liking. When you are trying to make a good impression and a guest at someone's home, you simply DON"T send the food back. I would have split mine with him in her presence with an excuse that "the food always tastes better off of his plate," sort of thing. Or, simply made the switch for mine to his. Telling her I like my meat rare and he likes his more well done. The boss probably gave him the bigger cut of meat but cooked it for the same amount of time as the other 2. A simple mistake on her behalf too. The proper thing for the boss would have been to ask how her guests liked their meat cooked. :) Another funny ending would be if the window were open and it hit someone on the sidewalk. Seeing the window open, went up and said something, steak in hand.

I don't believe a word of this, sorry. You'd actually attempt to throw a steak out the window? 1) You wouldn't tell your wife what was happening before you threw it? 2) Why not walk to the window and not risk missing the window? 3) Why not man up and tell your host about the steak? A good host would be more than willing to fix what was obviously a mistake. 4) If, as you said, it was a huge steak and your host was gone for just a moment, you don't think she would wonder how you ate it so quickly? Yeah, I'm calling big time BS on this story.

I find this rather sad. Do we not all hate such akward, stilted, forced community? Making good impressions for the sake of it? Several people being together "because" but everyone just hating it? Why not avoid it? I think this wife should love her husband very much for going through it and trying to make the bets of it. Not stopping him from eating the steak afterwards is just cruel, and also wrong from the boss. Gosh, we have so many problems in this world, and yet so much joy, why live through such shitty situations?

The husband was the 'dumb shit?' It's more like the dumb cunt who didn't even bother to ask how the husband wanted the steak, and didn't even cook it properly. And he's not 'dumb' if he genuinely thought the window was open. He doesn't work for the idiot, so why should he give shit about what she thinks, especially if she can't cook worth a shit? No wonder she's single. You women are some cunts sometimes, seriously.

1st - I am surprised that the hostess did not ask how her guests wanted their steaks cooked. I would never assume that a rare or medium rare steak is okay. 2nd - I don't understand why this man thought is was not okay to mention that his steak was undercooked and could he grill it a little longer himself so the ladies could just talk.

I actually understand the husband's reaction. I probably would have reacted in a similar way. :) It's easy to give advice in hindsight, but it's not fair, because one never knows what is going through the mind of another. Besides, he was trying to diffuse the situation in his own unique way, whilst trying not to embarrass his wife's boss and potentially strain the relationship between his wife and her boss. That shows sensitivity, which got expressed through an unconventional solution to a problem. :)

I would have been disgusted if I were served that steak. When I eat at a restaurant I have steak medium well, and because tapeworm is common in my country when I eat at a person's home I will not eat any meat unless it is well done.

After he cleaned up the window, he should have put it back on the stove (to clean the steak) - would have prevented him from eating steak tar-tar.

Well I've never eaten a grilled steak in the first place, mine are always fried, in a frying pan, with onions, and they are cooked slowly until there isn't a trace of red to be seen ANYWHERE. So if I'd been presented with that I would most probably have disappeared into the toilet to be sick :-(

First, the boss could not have hosted many parties. Who prepares a steak for first-time guests without asking how "done" they prefer their steaks ( I hope she at least asked the wife IF they eat meat). Secondly, as the guest cuts into the meat, I would ask if it was done to their liking. Lastly if it is too rare, I would gladly toss it back on the grill. Good steak is expensive, lovely and tasty. It's a shame when someone wastes it.....

First, the boss could not have entertained often if she didn't bother to ask her guests how they like their steaks ( hopefully she asked the wife if the ate meat at least). Secondly, when her guests cut into the steak, she should have asked if it was done to their liking. And lastly if the husband had honestly told her it was a bit underdone for his liking, she would probably have cooked it a bit more. A good host/hostess finds pleasure in pleasing their guests.

This reads like a classic fake story, down to the second person account to back up the first-person account. Interesting how the backup story perfectly iverlaysmthe first—no altering point-of-view. The “wife” even chooses an account name that has no identity of her own “mrs_...” I’m sorry, but my b.s. meter is highly accurate and this story sets off the alarm as a classic try-to-turn-a-joke-into-a-true-story post.

Happened something similar to me in China. When the meal came, the main dish was ducks heads cut diagonally in two half's - to eat its face skin and... That big brain. Thats a common Chinese dish. Fearing my stomach would make me throw up and create a very embarrassing atmosphere in the room, I took the first discret chance to pass my bf that huge ducks head into his plate. He got pale and couldn't believe in what had just happened while I smiled totally satisfied. Thats called justice even why I was convinced to come. Later we both pointed the meal was delicious. One of us is such a lier, and I assure you it isn't me.

Treated the way I did liver when I was little. Cut it ino small bites move i around as I ate sides continued with the sides eating add salad on top of bites to hide the once everyone was done clear the table so my wife and boss can talk. Clear the uneaten food from plates and rinse the plates off. Done looks like I ate it and I politely helped my host.

I would have thanked my wife's boss for cooking the steak the way I like it -- just heated enough to take the chill off it and be sure it won't bite back. If I'd been served one cooked "Texas-style" (you know, when it's dark brown, it's still cooking and when it's black and crispy, it's done), I would have eaten part of it, as another commenter suggested, and then said I was full. And before anyone gives me the utter BS about how I am endangering my health eating very rare meat, save your breath. I'm 72 years old, never get sick, used to eat steak tartare (back when you could trust your butcher), learned to eat sushi/sashimi in childhood from my Japanese aunt and ceviche from Latino friends, etc. Nearly every culture has some raw meat/fish dish, and those countries have fewer ills and better health than the US. Like the silly cr*p about butter and cheese -- ask the French!
