‘Looking for ideas for my 35-year-old’: School mums left speechless after wife asks what to pack in her ‘fussy’ HUSBAND’S lunchbox each day
- A woman has been slammed for wanting to make her 35-year-old husband lunch
- The woman was asking online for lunch ideas to cater for her ‘fussy’ partner
- But she said she didn’t mind people laughing at her and agreed with them
A wife has divided opinion after pleading with mums to help her with lunchbox ideas for her ‘fussy’ husband.
The Australian woman said she was ‘looking for ideas for my 35-year-old’ in a lunchbox Facebook group typically used by school mums, before laughing at how ‘hopeless’ her husband was for asking her to make his lunch every day.
While many offered suggestions, others said she shouldn’t have to make her husband’s lunch.
‘Can they not decide and make it for themselves,’ one woman asked.

‘Do people really pack their husband’s lunch, why?’ Another wrote.
Many women said they do it because it is easier, while others said they enjoy it.
The original poster simply agreed and later complained about how fussy he is.
‘We just need something to shut his hole up really,’ she said.
The woman’s original post called for ‘light and easy’ options – ‘food he can just pick at’.
‘I used to send mine with pies and sausage rolls, croissants, ma and cheese, chocolate shapes and fruit,’ one woman said.
One woman said she packs her 44-year-old husband’s lunch each day – and shared a photo where she had added little plastic toys to the meal ‘for fun’.
One more mum posted a photo of her 35-year-old’s lunch alongside her five-year-old’s lunch.
Another called for the end of the judgement.
‘Wow, some of you are so judgmental. Maybe she likes making his lunch? i don’t always make my partner’s, he is capable of making it himself, but I love to make sure he has healthy food,’ she said.
The Australian mum laughed at how ‘hopeless’ her husband was for needing her to make his lunch every day as others complained she shouldn’t have to
Before recommending wraps, strawberries, rock melon, olums, salami, twiggy sticks, cheese, lamingtons, Doritos and LCM bars
But the original poster said she didn’t mind the laughs.
‘I am not a bit offended people are laughing at my post, that is what it was for, a bit of a laugh. And it is for my partner but I like to refer to him as a child because lets get real ladies, all men are kids at heart.’
This isn’t the first time a wife has been ridiculed for making her husband lunch.
Recently a wife was slammed for packing her tradesman husband’s lunch before he goes to work every morning.
She shared a photo of the homemade spread, which included sandwiches, an assortment of cheese, crackers and cabanossi sausage and three pieces of fruit, in an Australian budgeting group on Facebook with the caption: ‘The Tradie’s Lunch.’

The woman said it’s ‘cheaper, fresher and healthier’ than the takeaway fare typically available at construction sites and in the centre of cities where electricians, carpenters and plumbers most commonly work.
The post initially received such a negative response that the group administrator was forced to remove comments slamming the woman for treating her husband like a child and waiting on him hand and foot.

‘Do we have to feed them during the day now too?’ one woman asked in a reply still visible under the photo.
Many defended her after the administrator told critics to mind their own business and respect how people choose to run their households.
‘No more comments about whether you agree or disagree with packing your significant other’s lunch for them,’ she said.
‘Each to their own, nobody is forcing you to pack [this woman’s] husband’s lunch. Move on if you don’t agree with it.’
One of the lunches shared in the budgeting group on Facebook, which shows affectionate messages written from a wife to her husband on the lids of his lunchboxes

Another said her mother still packs snacks and lunches for her middle-aged father who drives long distances to work in a coal mine every week.
‘His mate was so jealous she started packing one for him too,’ she said.
A pensioner who made lunches for her husband until he retired congratulated people who take the time to do so every day, lamenting how it is ‘fast becoming a thing of the past’.
Others showed support by sharing photos of the lunches they make for their partners, including one woman who writes affectionate messages on the lid of her husband’s lunchbox every morning.
Her photo shows plastic containers inscribed with the notes ‘the good things in life are better with you’ and ‘a father holds his daughter’s hand for a short while, but he holds her heart forever’.

Another said she became distracted while packing lunches early one morning and gave her son’s meal to her husband, much to the amusement of his colleagues.
‘All the boys couldn’t stop laughing because it was all cut up into triangles and the crust cut off,’ she said.
‘Way better than buying lunch every day though.’
A man joked that he ‘might need to find a new wife’ after seeing the size and content of the lunches being shared.
