Lol the way they are sitting so close to each other at that big ass table.

u/AlmostButNotQuit Jun 18 '22

And not looking at each other. And weirdly smiling at their food

u/tom_bacon Jun 18 '22

And all only using one hand to eat?

u/gabbagabbawill Jun 19 '22

And they’re like fuck the salad and rolls let’s eat pasta in unison.

I mean that's exactly what everyone in my family would do.

Left handed dad sitting super close to right handed mom? They’re asking for trouble when knives come out!

u/AppleDane Jun 18 '22

Is handedness genetic, because mom's a righty, and so are the kids... Hmm...

u/xiaxian1 Jun 18 '22

Both of my parents and my sibling are right handed but I’m the lone lefty.

u/ItsTheRealIamHUB Jun 19 '22

My dad’s a lefty and everyone else is right handed so yea

u/Twinbowser Aug 03 '22

My sister is the lone lefty in my family. We’re identical mirror twins, but I’m not sure if the embryo hadn’t split, whether it would have ended up with a right handed or left handed child… weirdly though, I (a righty) am left eye dominant (my twin’s the opposite) and display more supposedly ‘left handed’ traits (according to studies, left handed people are more likely to have hay fever, asthma, eczema and depression -all of which I have but my sister doesn’t)

u/AnnyBananneee Aug 06 '22

Both my baby sister and I are lefties, which is pretty rare

u/ShaylaDee Jun 18 '22

Yes, but it's recessive. From the Wikipedia article on handedness.

Handedness displays a complex inheritance pattern. For example, if both parents of a child are left-handed, there is a 26% chance of that child being left-handed.

u/CommandaarMandaar 17d ago

My parents are righties and I'm a lefty, while my aunt and uncle are both lefties and my cousin is a righty. 🤔🤷‍♀️

Why do we all have to eat on this side of the table mom?

Nothing….just keep smiling son…

You hate pots? We made a pot but out of plastic so you can't actually use the stove for cooking and have to use the microwave

I’m sorry. Microwaved shrimp? Baked potato in the microwave? This doesn’t seem great

Anyone who thinks pasta is “difficult” to cook doesn’t deserve to eat.

There is something seriously wrong with the ice in those glasses. wtf kind of ice doesn't float?

u/[deleted] Jul 03 '22

r/Cocktails or whatever has endless explanations on stupid shit like spending time making spherical clear ice cubes because science+money+time-somethingelse=nothing is magical. Water is wet, lol.

u/WaterIsWetBot Jul 03 '22

Water is actually not wet; It makes other materials/objects wet. Wetness is the state of a non-liquid when a liquid adheres to, and/or permeates its substance while maintaining chemically distinct structures. So if we say something is wet we mean the liquid is sticking to the object.

 

As raindrops say, two’s company, three’s a cloud.

u/bigktizzle Nov 03 '22

Actually moisture is the essence of wetness, and wetness is the essence of beauty. But we can both be right 😉

Where did the sauce go? Seriously, mom and dad are eating plain noodles. Who does that?

u/shibbypwn Jun 18 '22

Four human beings, zero of them with their elbows on the table.

Who the fuck just sits and eats with their hand in their lap?

Doubt

u/bearmissile Jun 18 '22

Putting your elbows on the dinner table was one of the seven deadly sins in the house I grew up in. I’m 35 and it still makes me anxious.

23

u/Eelazar Jun 18 '22

Yeah both forearms on the table, but if your elbows touch it, straight to jail. I always got told "that's how farmers/peasants eat".

u/AppleDane Jun 18 '22

And farmers are the worst!

Apparently.

u/HunkyDoryPENArt37920 Jul 11 '22

YES!!!!!!!! Me too! Shame on me.... I taught my boys what I was taught.....sigh....

However, Mom always said, "if you eat dinner with the President you will know 'your manners'.." I think I'll pass. Just sayin'....

u/OrangeJuiceAlibi Jun 18 '22

I can't speak for anywhere else, but I was taught it was bad manners to put your elbows on the table when eating.

14

u/Mediocremon Jun 18 '22

I was taught the same.

But I don't need no education. I don't need no thought controoool.

u/liquidthex Jun 18 '22

Yeah I'm not just another brick in the wall!! Right on!

But I'm still not going to put my elbows on the table. What if something bad happens?

u/Mediocremon Jun 18 '22

Then you die probably idfk I'm scared too

11

u/AntediluvianEmpire Jun 18 '22

As a parent, this shit is hard. I was taught all kinds of manners that, as an adult, I just don't give a shit about or follow. I probably should be teaching my kids this, just so they're prepared for polite company, but...

Example: you should say "excuse me" if you release a burp or fart near people (both of which should be avoided at all costs).

My kids around grandma: fart deliberately

Grandma: hey, what do you say?

My kids: "I Farted! Haha"

I definitely try to keep what I consider "the good stuff", I ask them to chew with their mouth closed, respect boundaries, don't talk with food in your mouth. Those seem like the important ones to me.

3

u/Fuck_it_whatever Jun 18 '22

Ugh, I'm having flashbacks to the church girls camp that I went to for a few different summers. If you got caught with your elbows on the table during mealtime you'd get sung at, and everyone was expected to join in.

u/Filo02 Jun 18 '22

they all eat the pasta without the sauce on it

No one notices they eat pasta with knife and fork? Also them just holding the fork looks horrible to me.

Hey you guys wanna sit really fucking close together only using half the table while we eat spaghetti ?

u/CommandaarMandaar 17d ago

Oh, this makes me homesick for my childhood, and the nights my family would squish together uncomfortably on one side of the table, smiling down at our simple spaghetti meals as we jostled and elbowed one another in the ribs! Has anyone here figured out what you're supposed to do with the other two sides of the table? I mean, they must serve some sort of purpose ... right?

u/CommandaarMandaar 17d ago

I guess that salad is just for decoration, then.
