A local marriage is reportedly at crisis point due to a dispute over who got to take last night’s leftovers to work for lunch today. The disruption began late last night when Katie and Daniel Fitzgerald were tidying up the kitchen after dinner and the pair realised there was only one serve of bangers and mash remaining for one of their lunches.

Following a rather hostile negotiation, Katie claimed rights on the meal due to her having initially prepared and cooked it for last night’s dinner. Unhappy with this final decision, Daniel stormed out of the kitchen, kicking the bin on his way out, and the couple didn’t speak for the rest of the evening. The silence continued this morning, except for some mumbled grievances uttered by Daniel as he reluctantly made a ham and cheese toastie to take for lunch today.

Speaking exclusively to The Watsonia Bugle this morning, Daniel said, “It’s a joke mate. She’s so territorial about leftovers for lunch, I’ve had enough. If she even dares to mention it tonight, or sends me a pic today of her enjoying the lunch, the marriage is over. I’m gone.”
