Guy Caught Refusing to Share Ice Cream With Girlfriend & We've Had THAT Fight Before, Too (VIDEO)

LOL 15

ice cream guySome guy with a beard at a basketball game has suddenly shot to fame -- and for the worst reason, too. He's been dubbed "Ice Cream Guy" because he was captured on camera refusing to let his girlfriend take a bite from his ice cream cone! Can you believe this shit?

So there they are at the game. He's enjoying his mint chocolate chip cone. She tries to get a tiny nibble with her spoon. (SPOON, she's even using a spoon, ya big jerk!) And he moves the damn cone away from her. Doesn't he know? Love means never having to buy a whole ice cream cone of your own when all you want is a bite! That's half the reason why you get a boyfriend in the first place. Jeebus, man.

Why so stingy with the sharing? This is such a THING with guys. I have a friend who makes it a rule to never, ever share anything that he orders. And he argues with his wife over this rule all the time. This selfish rule has caused marital strife! And it's so not worth it. I understand wanting to have boundaries, but come on. A little bite? Just a taste? No man ever starved to death because he let someone take a bite of his food.

I feel like I've spent most of my adult life saying this over and over again: Sometimes we just want to taste something. I don't want to buy a whole beer and then feel obligated to drink the whole pint -- I just want to find out how it tastes. I want to eat the trout for dinner, but I also want to see how this restaurant does duck. And the way I feel about sweets is, you pretty much get the point after one or two bites. So what's with a whole big cone all to yourself? Ice cream cones are for sharing. This is how the human race bonds with each other -- through sharing food.

Yes, I AM that woman at your office who cuts cupcakes in half so she can have two different flavors. And while everyone goes back to their cubicles, I may just come back and cut off a sliver from a third. Because that lemon was awful but I wonder if the red velvet is better?

Anyway, I hope this couple's relationship recovers from this heartbreaking incident of food-tasting injustice. But going by that look the girl gives her guy, I'd say it's 50/50. At least he finally gives in at the end.

Do you hate sharing your food -- or does your significant other hate letting you taste his food?

My fiance and I share our food all the time. I don't understand what's the big deal. We actually make a point of ordering different things so we can taste each others.

My hopefully soon-to-be-ex does NOT share food, especially french fries, with ANYONE, not even his children. He will literally stab you with a fork if you even LOOK at what's on his plate. Maybe one day we'll get lucky and he'll choke on his own greed & selfishness.

My hubby is NOT a food sharer. His opinion is, if you wanted it, you should have ordered it yourself. I grew up in a family where everything on each other's plate was free game for sampling. Not for him. I don't think it's a selfishness thing, but he was raised in a really large family where there wasn't much that was for him alone. I think it's just a reflex on his part, he learned to hoard his food.


Now, this guy in the video. He kinda looks like an asshole.

I'm the one who doesn't like sharing food. Only with some foods though. My hubby still has his top braces and some times when he takes a bite of my food some food that's stuck in his braces comes off on what ever we're eating and that disgust me. I don't even want to take a bite, I just let him have the rest or tear the offending piece off.

Lol ! I think anyone who is that way with their food has some deeper emotional issues tied with food. You arent that way just for the hell of it. I couldnt stand it if my partner was so 'its mine" .. id think wow dude you have some real issues. Sharing is caring havent you heard ? Me and my husband also order different things and gasp ! Share half so we can try different things. Its a way of beingclose and caring for each other. Letting me have a bite means I care about you more than food/emotional issues. Its a way loving. ( not the only way of course)

Lol! My hubby does this! Hes obviously teasing. I always try a bite of whatever hes having and he always lets me, sometimes begrudgingly. I always offer mine but he usually doest want it. I share food with everyone. I see food as a communal experience!

I don't like sharing food. I have certain amounts I eat, and that's ALL I put on my plate. So if someone takes it from me, it bugs me. My kid is probably the only one who I tolerate it from, and she doesn't do it much. Not to mention, I've always been one of those people who just doesn't like other people hovering over my food, regardless of who they are (I rarely eat out, because I don't like the thought of other people handling it).

He looks like a jerkoff to begin with. Hope she's smart enough to dump him
