Dear nairalanders,i was having a conversation with a family friend last week.

You cannot serve me Ofe-Akwu with salted, well cooked foreign rice and goat meat; then expect something to remain.

angry

Infact one time my grandmother had to slap sense into me.

When we went to the house of her "enemy" on Easter Sunday. The devilish woman offered me freshly cooked Ofe-Akwu and White Rice with Big Fish.

Imagine my Granny thinking I would say NO. grin


I just did small sign of the cross, then proceeded to demolish the food in such a way, that my granny was so bitter looking at me.

On the road back to our house, she remove her koi-koi shoe use am reset my brain.

But it was worth it.

Respect the food... how long it took for all components to grow and the cost to get it from the farm to the kitchen and then prepared and placed in front of you. Then consider the many out there who are starving while you are busy debating in your mind whether you should finish food placed in front of you. undecided

When you do that, you will maybe better understand why it matters not what your host may think but instead that you waste not. undecided

I did that to my tenant 3 years ago,I do t know if she laced the food with juju or it was a must that I finished the food before the juju will work. Well I trusted .y instincts, I didn't finish the food but I crushed the meat and chicken. After she came thru,and asked with authority why I didn't finish it,fear 1st catch me. Why sudden visit. She was owing me 2 good years rent and I never fell for her seduction. Never. She paid me half a month later,i gave her quit notice by June. Dec I counted my loss and got me a new tenant.

I guess that some visitors remain just a little food so that it won't look like they came to your house with empty stomach...

Also they were trying to avoid kids/ the little ones telling each other on how that uncle came and finished the entire food served and would have requested for more assuming he/she was asked to take another helping..

lipsrsealed
It is very important not to finish the meal you're served as a visitor undecided. E get why undecided. No go fall your hand because of say you dey hungry lipsrsealed. Hunger at it's best can still be controlled...... Leave small thing for your ancestors lipsrsealed. No be wetin dem talk for your presence nai matter,but na wetin dem go talk after you clean the plate finish and comot nai matter lipsrsealed.

So my fellow visitors, always use your brains.

Maybe, the food no sweet. E.g pepperless food, saltless food or tasteless food.

Some years ago, I went to a Venerable's house at Elere and was offered Rice.

I was really really hungry but usual nah, left some pieces on the plate. His wife came to clear the stuffs and say ahn ahn, you didn't finish the rice?

Please finish it, We don't have dogs here.

How is this on homepage?

I don't even understand this Nairaland anymore.

It seems Seun is bored with his creation and he has left if on autopilot.

With all the terrible grammar and all, this made homepage.

Why don't you invite people to your house and ask anyone who doesn't finish their food why they didn't finish it?
Before you feed people for 2 weeks, you must have gotten your answer.
