We call that "Occupation syndrome", after the German occupation, when people were poor and had no food. Not sure if there is an actual syndrome for that.

My grandma will eat 5 days old bread so that it doesn't go to waste, even if it's just one slice left and there's fresh bread on the table. She always complains when I leave just one bite on my plate and I'm full and I can't finish it.
That's just unhealthy compulsive behavior. Well, the extreme version of it. But old people here are quite prone to it Tongue

HEY ! who you callin old Angry

Anyway, I am a German.... hmm, so there's that Dodgy

If bullshit were music some people would be a brass band.

I take it you meant to say, 'And when will I yell at kids to get off of my lawn' ?

That is reserved for when you get the years under your belt, sorry, younger guys arent allowed to say that phrase untill at least 50 years old. Wink

A lawn is a device used to enslave people to the chore of mowing.

I avoid that task by never having a lawn.

I apply this to cups, dishes and knives and forks as well.

If I don't own it, I don't have to wash it. Smile

Unless you actually mow and tend to the lawn, you don't get to say it. Dodgy

Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can't remember them either.
