sign him up for a food safety certification class (the one that people in the food/beverage industry take) and he will become a whole new person in the kitchen.

🤮 Thats nasty and dangerous. If he’s touching food and wiping his hands on himself without ever washing them then what kind of unseen grossness is crawling all over his hands when he’s touching you? Ugh my stomach hurts just reading this.

I’m sorry but that is not an acceptable bad habit. I wouldn’t turn a blind eye or deal with it. Tell him he’s not allowed to prepare any food for you due to safety concerns. eat out, order in, cook for yourself but don’t take another bite of his food. If knowing he may poison his wife and unborn child isn’t enough to make him change that kind of speaks volumes. Ugh

Honestly, you just need to have an adult conversation with him and let him know how unsafe it is for him, you, and now your baby.  I think it’s pretty ridiculous to try to trick him into learning by taking him to a cooking class and getting someone else to tell him what he’s doing is gross.  Talk to him politely but sternly like an adult.

What do you mean by “freaks out”..? This is a major concern and he needs to take it seriously. Especially with you being pregnant!!

I would think the risk of killing his unborm child would be reason enough for him to stop??  The fuck else does he need to hear to quit that shit???!!?  Do you mean he touches other food that isnt going to be coooked, or does everythiing end up cooked?  If its not going to be cooked, ask him if he’d just lick his hands clean instead?  If the answer is no, tell him he might as well, and if he doesnt think thats safe, then why is what hes doing safe?

Give him some articles about e coli, shigella, salmonella and Listeria, (which by the way has been known to cause spontaneous abortion) all of which are food borne illnesses. This is serious shit and I wouldn’t put up with his attitude and I wouldnt eat his food. He needs to stop being stupid and you need to stand up for yourself.

This isn’t just making your own food – he wipes raw meat juice ON HIS PANTS. And then…. I assume… continues wearing the pants and sitting on your couch and lying on your bed and… Barf. No. Fuck no. He is contaminating EVERYTHING.

I find that starting sentences with “Listen, you nasty, dangerous motherfucker…” is effective…

It gets my own feelings of horror off my chest, at the very least.

Whatever you say, make sure you use “I” statements:

“I feel unsafe when you act like a nasty, dangerous motherfucker in the kitchen.”

“I feel like burning your clothes, with you in them, when you wipe raw meat juice on your pants while cooking.”

“I think your behavior is dangerous and your offense at my pointing that out is ridiculous and did I mention you’re nasty?”

“I feel like your cavalier attitude to my and our unborn child’s safety and well being with your nasty and unsanitary cooking habits is problematic and concerning. And you’re nasty.”
