So, your flatmate has spent two hours making a big pot of lovely-looking jambalaya (veggie or not, depending on your preference). They have served themselves a big bowl and have seated themselves in front of the television to catch up on a bit of television.
You have come back from work late and can’t be bothered to cook. You’ve bought yourself a reduced ready meal, which is currently 2 mins into a 7 min spin in the microwave. You eye up the pot of jambalaya, with a wooden spoon still planted in it. It looks delicious and you can hear the television is too loud for them to hear you. You think you could have a spoonful. Do you…?
- Not have a sly spoonful. If you wanted Jambalaya, you should have made some yourself.
- Thank you for your donation to the Conservative Party. You’re helping to donate towards another term of strong and stable government.
People eating other people’s food on the sly is a proper red mist thing for me.
Just ask your flatmate if you can have a bit. Save the reduced misery meal for tomorrow.
excellent thread title. do the right thing, b_j
It will have passed its use by date by then, sadly.
Yeah but it’ll still be fine.
I’d give myself away because I would not be able to resist loudly singing “JAMBALAYA” to this tune
At some point I’m going to stop finding the ‘sensible poll option/Tory poll option’ funny, but it’s not happened yet.
Oh yes, and you’ll die a terrible, terrible death if you eat it. It was reduced right? Bin it off/chuck it in the freezer.
I’ve never lived with a housemate aside from my wife, but surely having a small taste of their large meal isn’t the biggest crime in the world? If you took a whole bowl or finished it off without asking that’s a different story, obviously.
EPIMER DOESN’T SHARE FOOD
your mate would be the Tory in this situation surely
What you don’t know can’t hurt you.
fucking hell that was a tough choice
Don’t do it. It’ll be boiling hot, and they’ll walk in right as you’re sipping from the spoon and burning your mouth.
I’ll have sellotaped a single hair to the spoon, Theo-style.
…and having to spit a big mouthful of sloppy meaty rice back into the pan
