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?

Vietnamese Cyclo Driver
My current girlfriend is Vietnamese. Her parents still live in Vietnam and are very traditional. They are lovely people, very humble and accommodating. They don’t have a lot of money. The family business has been as owner-drivers of a cyclo: one those three wheeled bicycle things where people sit in the back and get taken around in a human powered taxi. They have been doing it for generations and the same contraption has been passed down from great-grandfather to grandfather to father to son and no doubt this will continue. Apparently there is great ceremony and pomp associated with handing the business to the offspring. After all it is a family rickshaw.

It cracks me up when people say
"My current grilfriend".

It sounds as though you are planning to upgrade her in the near future like a car or a mobile phone.

Starship Troopers Philosophy
In my misogynist youth I adhered to the Starship Troopers Philosophy of Girlfriend Management.

"You're my girlfriend until I find someone better or you die."
