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?

Bowel movements
When I was young, any display of fractiousness or misbehaviour was dismissed by Mum with a simple question: "do you need to do a poo?"

This has persisted to the present day, and we're big hairy grownups now.

I've got my own little one and spouse now, and we're saying "it's the morning" to announce a desire to drop the kids off at the pool.

This dates back to a holiday in the Far East when the time zone change led to previously regular daybreak bowel habits to migrate into the middle of the day.
