Two weeks ago, we had bagels at my office- with cream cheese- and that weekend, the building management was going to chuck everything in the fridge. Nobody else wanted it so I took it home. My cat is now enjoying a tablespoon or two of plain soft cream cheese every few days; she will have finished it long before the expiration date. (Some cats cannot handle dairy, but mine can evidently).
Considering that having this stuff in your fridge practically makes you physically ill, your boyfriend isn't being considerate.
