He's throwing away my bread!
After an anxious month during which I failed to rent out my spare bedroom, I rented it to a young Saudi male, a graduate student at a local university. I had initially turned him down, but a friend convinced me to give it a try.
She was wrong, I was right; I gave him notice three days later. He was treating me like one of the maids in his family's Riyadh house.
He's leaving in a couple of weeks (I gave him a month's notice). In the meantime, he's eating most of his meals out ... he didn't want to pay me to cook for him. However, he is happily eating my homemade bread. What HURTS is that he'll cut several huge chunks out of the loaf, carry them off to his room to eat -- and then throw half the bread away, uneaten.
I've asked him not to do this; he persists. He's just too used to lavish meals prepared by hired cooks.
Perhaps you-all can share my horror at working hard to make good bread and then seeing it in the garbage. Have any of you had experiences like this?
