Civilized B.C. Rat Won't Eat In Bed, Thank You Very Much (VIDEO)

So stop trying, mom.

Breakfast in bed is a romantic idea, but in reality it can get kind of messy.

No one knows this better, apparently, than Dexter the rat.

Dexter's (human) mother captured a video in which she tries to feed the rodent some broccoli, but every time she pushes it into his bed, he throws it back out.

Broccoli may be one of Dexter's favourite vegetables, but Jayne Stanfield, who lives in B.C.'s Okanagan region, told Global News that her little pet doesn't like to eat where he sleeps.

We feel you, buddy.
