When I was a teenager I was in the chippy with a mate and he bought chips and offered to share them, at the last minute after he got them i decided to get a sausage for myself, just a sausage. Lass behind the counter asked if I wanted it wrapped and raised her eyebrows at me

Always got single sausage requests when I worked in a cafe

What would you eat them with? They’re almost exclusively a thing to be eaten on their own imo but now I’m doubting myself!

I see that more as a vehicle for the pickled onion, the cheese is decorative here.

I sort of presumed with chips.

An open bag of chip shop chips and and paying an extra 15p for a pickled onion in the late 80s/early 90s was a big treat for me during my school days.

Always get a PO with any chippie order

They’re still only 25p I think, not bad change from the prices @BMS1 said!

My mum would give me a quid for Friday lunch. You could get a a portion of chips, a pickled onion and a can of coke for a quid back then.

Walking back from the chip shop back to school on Friday lunchtimes was a sign that Hey! It’s the weekend!
