I remembered a bloke giving me some advice once by using a story to prove a point, there was some deeper meaning in it somewhere but I was fecked if I could see it. It went something like.....not long after getting married this blokes wife cooked a sunday roast, she prepared all the veg and got the chicken out of the fridge, unwrapped it but before she put it in the oven she broke both legs off and stuffed them down the side of the bird. He thought thats odd, but never said anything. After a while he got used to eating his roast chicken with the legs seperate. Some time later he was watching her prepare the bird and asked her why she always cut the legs off. Thats the way my mums cooks them was the reply.......OK. A couple of years go by and the mother-in-law pays a rare visit, so they decide to have a roast chicken. As usual the wife is getting the scoff sorted and is about to cut off the legs......why are you doing that asks the mum......the wife is shocked, well thats they way you taught me to cook mum !!........yea but I only cut the legs off because we had such a tiny oven I couldnt the fecking thing in without taking the legs off. The moral being..........don't always do someting just because that the way its always been done. All I could think of while he was telling me this was......"feck me mate you married a right fecking mong" If you have any other old sweat advice or wise words which were basically B.OLLOCKS feel free to add.
