I know, but I pick my battles. If I don't cut his corn, his wife will. I'm not fighting over corn at my table.

the high frequency suction sound was a bit annoying after a while


A grape? Sucking it in? That actually sounds dangerous. What if you only were able to suck it in so far but then it got stuck? Next thing they're going to need is the Heimlich Maneuver. I've heard/seen people throwing them up in the air and catching in their mouth, like some do with popcorn. Ugh, ugh. Not me.
Maybe when I was much younger but nowadays I'm fairly sure that I would not attempt or rather, tempt my fate.

Don't any of those kitchen stores sell a cylindrical type of kernel stripper? You put the cylindrical kernel cutter over the corn cob, push down and all the kernels are supposed to be now on your plate, instead of the corn cob? Not sure what they call them, but what guy couldn't resist using one of those? Unless he has issues like RA or something, I can't see him sitting back to have someone else do it.


Ebay and Amazon sell something like that. Amazon lists it - DGI Mart, sells for about close to 5 dollars.

No ribs? Blasphemy!! This cannot be true.

Also, when people make rude comments about what someone else is eating. "OMG, that's gross! It looks like barf!" Fine, so don't eat it, then.

About people taking food off of my plate without asking, I had a conversation with someone yesterday in which I said that I'd smack the crap out of someone that did that to me.

The foodgasm thing!. I had an acquaintance who was significantly overweight - perhaps morbidly obese. Wen in a restaurant, the conversation was fine, until the food came, at which time it became a strange and creepy experience. She had a glazed expression on her face, and fondled the food gently with her fork, holding it up and gazing at it - as though she had never seen anything so beautiful.

Once it was in her mouth, there were the orgasmic moans, groaning, closing her eyes.

I agree! I felt like the third wheel - like some kind of voyeur. It was disgusting and bizarre.

"Getting a room" with her chicken quesadillas, was definitely in order.

Oh, he definitely would sit back. He has had women waiting on him all his life and would be genuinely baffled why someone is messing with his routine now, when he's in his 70s. The easiest thing is just not make corn on the cob, because I know he doesn't eat it.

Duh, why did they accept the invitation if they were going to ditch half the food?

Or they constantly demand what I feel is excessive service (this is too cold, this is not cooked enough, this tastes burnt, I need more ice, there's too much ice, can you substitute potatoes anna for the fries, can I have extra hollandaise sauce ...in a cup.. on the side.. reheated.. to go, ad nauseum ad infinitum).

I am not a pushover but there are limits!

AREN'T there?
I was at Texas Roadhouse a few weeks ago using my Christmas gift card from my work . I saw this late teens, early twenties guy waste half his rib eye and only ate one rattlesnake bite out of the tray before tossing it.


I couldn't believe it.... His mama never taught him not to waste expensive food I guess.


The redneck in me wanted to go over after he left and help myself before the waitress cleared and cleaned the table. I so wanted to do it...but I didn't because the bartender was this hot chick and I didn't want to embarrass my old ass doing so....


They were lucky....LOL
