How to deal with food complainers?

paprkutr | Oct 15, 2008 08:18 PM

Hubby and I went out to lunch today with friends that we enjoy. However, the wife couldn't decide what she wants, lets hubby order, tastes his food, ends up eating it, and he has to order something else, and has to wait for it. It is a little annoying.

But the biggest thing is she constantly says this is fattening, or not healthy, or telling her husband not eat this, which he ignores. It is a major turnoff to hubby and me, we enjoy our food as well as does her husband, and if she chooses not to eat that's fine, but I don't want to here her constant chatter about unhealthy food or telling her husband not to eat through out the whole meal.

Is there anything I can say, or do I just keep my mouth shut? I know some people will say not to go out with them, which we would like to try to avoid.
