- Eating the last few crisps – to pour or not to pour
So, I’ve just been challenged by a colleague who watched me tip the last few crisps into my mouth from the packet.
They thought this was appalling manners.
Have I committed a sin worthy of a flogging or are they just being a bit pompous? How else are you supposed to get the last few little bits and crumbs out.
They were Jalapeno flavoured kettle chips (I’m in the USofA) if it helps?Posted 4 years ago
I did once have a lady friend who used to open the packet up and lick the insides – even I thought that was vulgar.
But I’ve always been a pourer. I was raised a pourer and I’ll die a pourer. I was just amazed at how strongly this person felt about getting the last few crisps (chips!) out.
Personally – the little bits at the end are the gold dust in any packet anyway – more flavour lurks down there!Posted 4 years ago
Camo – I think you’re not making sense.
A gent would not eat crisps.
Crisps are eaten by the masses. A gent would have some fine pate on a water biscuit.
The crisp is a humble food of humble folk. It has no pretentions. It has no class. It is a sliced and fried potato flavoured to taste like things only a common person would eat (one does not imagine the Queen licking her lips at the thought of Bovril, or cheese and onion).Posted 4 years agocamo16Member
I’m talking here about a gent who expected his lady love to transport him to a late supper at the Savoy, but to his horror discovers that his birthday surprise is tea in Stoke. Now, faced with sweaty Northern masses proferring mass market bagged potato snack, our gent’s superior upbring demand that he sample said potato snacks… Hence the advice proferred above.
Not many STW posts have their own back story. That’s extra camo16 value, no added salt.Posted 4 years ago
