This is a question Family codes and rituals

Freddy Woo writes, "as a child we used to have a 'whoever cuts doesn't choose the slice' rule with cake. It worked brilliantly, but it's left me completely anal about dividing up food - my wife just takes the piss as I ritually compare all the slice sizes."

What codes and rituals does your family have?

"The one you touch is the one you eat."
This is a relatively simple rule, and easy to comply to.

But once it escalated to a ridiculous level, my next door neighbours came round to sleep (when i was about 6) and my mum brough up some jamaican ginger cake/carrot cake, with there being 4 of us - naturally - there was 8 pieces. Well on the withdrawal of his second piece my neighbour managed to rub high little finger on the side of another slice - mine.

I shouted "The one you touch is the one you eat, so why touch three?!" I complained not to eat it for about 20 minutes, which eventually ended in him eating it as my brother and the neighbour's sister agreed with the rule.

I then complained that i had missed out on a slice, but it was my own fault.
