Buying seasoned meat was originally bad because then they don't have to put where its from on the package, then apparently they take rotten meat and season it, so it's better. The idea that if they're deliberately selling one kind of rotten meat, all of their meat is suspect is lost on them.
Ha! Yep my MIL too (thinks there is only one right way, her way, to do things). Which shits my wife off no end. Speaking of laundry, MIL wil even wash her clothes separately and use different detergent/softener. A few weeks back my wife was doing the laundry as we had our nieces and nephews here so wife thought it would help MIL out (cause MIL must be boss and take care of the kids, although only when it suits her
) and do the laundry. MIL comes rushing out (machine is outside) and says "Leave it I'll do it!" and then of course she bitches that my never helps around the house. Same with cooking. MIL bitches that the wife never cooks and yet every time she (or even I for that matter) try to cook, she's all up in our trying to tell us how to do it to "educate" us cause her way is better/right. Like when I cook, generally it is western food (MIL can only cook J food or J bastardizations of Asian/western food) cause that's what I want to eat seeing as I rarely get to eat western good. So she'll ask what I'm coking and sometimes say "Oh, I've never heard of that" and then in the same breath "you should do this or cook it like that". Hang on. You don't even know what the fark I am cooking so how do you know how to cook it?!?!?!
And speaking of rubbing off, wife and I like to cook together BUT when I am taking the lead/cooking something that I want to cook/eat we always argue cause she'll always tell me how to cook it even though she probably has never cooked it/doesn't know how to make it. "Nah, don't do that. Do this." "But I saw a Youtube video and the guy in that said do it like this cause XXXX reason." "Nah he's wrong." "Hang on. So you know more about cooking than Gordon Ramsey, a guy with three Michelin stars?!?!?!"
Even basic shit. Like the other day I was making spaghetti carbonara and boiling the pasta. Pasta was done so grabbed the pot to pour out the water but had yet to get a sieve. Wife says "What are doing?!?!" Not in a tone like "I wonder what it is you are going to do next. Could you please tell me?" More like "Are fucking mad? WTF are you thinking?" So of course I got pissed and said something like "WTF do you think I'm doing ffs?" I stewed on it for a while and after dinner told her to stop telling what to do when I cook and used that as an example. She replied "But I didn't know what you were doing cause you hadn't taken out a sieve yet." FFS. Is it that hard to imagine what I might be about to do?!?!?!?!
