Upon confronting her dad about why he told his wife that the meal was nice, he responded:
"Your Mother had a tough day at work.
"She was tired.
"The burnt pie didn't harm me but, a sharp word could have hurt her."

Sam Norris stated:
"I love the story...on a different note, when making a mistake, own it. You boss will appreciate not wasting their time with excuses and obfuscation. I always throw in "but I learned...and this won't bite me again"...it's just part of the human condition that we'll all make mistakes, the important thing is to learn from them."

Dorothy Young remarked:
"Another word comes to mind- unconditional. That pie to me represents many of us- worldly, burned out, burned up in our sins, but God. Like the wife- she already knew what she had done.
"No need to bring it up - like our God. He does not bring up all our shortcomings and sins. Our repentance and confession of our sins and asking forgiveness is all that matters to Him. That husband was an example of that."
Chris Madison wrote:
"I agree, that was a great response. That being said, if her day was truly that hard, maybe the husband chould have made the dinner and pie so his wife could recover from a hard day… I am not saying I have this nailed… Lord (and my wife) know I do not."
Theresa Chaze said:
"I think the gender difference is amazing. The women thought the actions of the husband were loving and supportive, while most of the men were looking for a reason to be cruel in the name of honesty."

Ayeni revealed that after the woman had gone to bed, he quietly went into the kitchen, picked a spoon, and started chipping away at the rice in the pot.
He did that so that his wife would not notice he later went to eat her food. The man stated that after he had scrapped at the food for a while, he went and got a bigger spoon.
With the spoon, Ayeni scooped the rice in large amount inside his plate and added meat.
