…is to never be the first one to take the first or the last piece of cake or chocolate…
A total difference to us “rude” German “breed”, who never have a problem to either start or finish cake or chocolate, or what else there is on offer, regardless whether everybody got a piece or not. A definite advantage for me, since I can almost always be sure to get something of whatever is on offer.
Recent example from work – two boxes of chocolate. Against all common rules, I was not the one opening the chocolate box (although I brought it). However, I was the one taking the last piece ;-). The whole thing can look like this towards the end:
And mind you, during the time of “plundering” the box one actually has to be quick to get the pieces one wants!
Neatly finished, isn’t it? 😀
