Tell us so we can judge you.

My folks live in that there countryside.
You know - full of farms and wildlife and such like. For a while they kept chickens for a bit of recreation, free eggs and the like.

As animals do from time to time, one of them got ill. The folks separated her from the rest of the flock so that nothing would spread - did all the right sorts of things, but it became apparent that this chook was on a downward slope.

Dad didn't have it in him to wring the chicken (to be fair I doubt I would have either). Resulting in:

A visit to the vet,

In a farming community,

With a chicken,

To have it put down.

I'm not sure that he ever fully felt he could hold his head up high in the town after that.

EDIT Bonus points for completely failing to read the question, anyone?

I like this!
I think it should win - even though it's the antithesis of an answer.

Yeah I only just read the actual sub-heading - I'd presumed MTFU would be about occasions where you needed to man up, rather than where you actually had.

My dad killed my pet rabbit by smacking it over the head with a brick. I'm not even sure there was anything wrong with it.

Dads are great aren't they?
My Dad was forever taking my temperature, I wasn't sick. I hated that rectal thermometer.

Massive great pink thing - awful.

My grandad
always used to wring a chicken's neck for the pot each weekend, until he got too old to catch them. So he used a shotgun instead. Not a lot of meat left on a hen after it's been shot at close range with a shotgun

Did the injection interfere with the taste of the gravy on Sunday though?

I read this in the style of Lonnie Donegan's chewing-gum themed skiffle classic of yesteryear.
