    In front of you is a dinner plate on which sits a portion of carrots, a portion of green beans and a portion of tilapia. In what order do you consume the food?

    I eat all the carrots, then all the green beans, and lastly all the tilapia.​

    Let’s say you buy a burger and fries at the drive-thru.

    I eat all the fries before I even take bite one of the burger.​

    If forced to defend my technique, my only explanation is that I’m subconsciously eating my least preferred food item first while I’m the most hungry, and saving my favorite item for last.

    My wife thinks I’m a freak. She prefers to take alternating bites of each item. So she might eat some green beans, followed by a forkful of tilapia, and then a bite of her carrots, etc.

    So which of us is doing it wrong? How do you do it?

    First we need to know if the beans and carrots are allowed to touch?

    Tilapia??? Pick it up and flush it down the toilet...then break out the Lysol and clean anything it may have come in contact with or even close proximity.


    Crap fish that grow in crap water and eat crap.


    Give me a can of Spam any day and maybe I could choke down the veggies.

    What the hell, as long as I’m stepping in it... let’s discuss eating etiquette in general.

    I'll start with two specific, and especially disgusting, practices that irk me.

    First, sticking out one's tongue to receive the food being eaten. And second, taking a drink while still chewing the food in one's mouth. :honkie:

    Thoughts??

    It isn't anything that requires a great deal of thought unless you're totally OCD. You are the freak. Your wife obviously accepts this and you're fortunate to have a normal person for a wife to try an keep you in touch with reality.

    Accept the fact that you are the freak and that you needn't disagree with your wife over things like this and try and convince her that there's something wrong with her.
