This is a question My Arch-nemesis

I lived in fear of a Darth Vader-esque school dinner lady who stood me perpetually at the naughty table for refusing to eat mushy peas. An ordeal made worse after I was caught spooning the accursed veg into her wellies. Who, we ask, has wrecked your life?

Thanks to Philly G for the suggestion

These are, to be honest, my real nemesis.

Although I don't look like a traditional obsessive pie eater - a few on here can testify to that (honest) - they are my nemesis. There was a time when I would have lunch every die which would consist of pies - many pies.

Standard lunch would be from Greggs - 2x pies, a sausage roll and a muffin. That was if I was feeling like I needed variety - otherwise it'd be 3 or 4 pies a time.

In fact, if I didn't have one, I'd crave one and make excuses to nip out for one - from anywhere....

Think of Homer Simpson's reaction to doughnuts - MMMmmmmm, pies....

I'm on a health kick now and the first week of pie cold turkey was the hardest as I felt like I needed pies all the time - not wanted, needed.

I no longer crave them or, to be honest, even want one. Although, what'll happen if I walk past Greggs and I smell that pastry goodness is another matter....

I used to work near a Wrights pie factory
and the sight of the staff piling out at shift change was a revelation. Huge, they were, every one of'em.

Local legend has it that production line workers can eat as many pies as they like. Having seen them at first hand waddling happily homewards, I'm inclined to believe it.

Put me off eating pies. A bit.

Wright's Pies...mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
I remember my days at Stoke Poly doing a part-time ceramics course and making regular use of the adjacent Wright's Pies shop for my evening repast.
Especially the chicken & mushroom, which was nearly as hot as a McDonalds Apple Pie. (OK, not really. Nothing else is that hot)

I found that Greggs pies and soup are often "surface of the sun" hot - in fact, I often wondered if I ever spilt it how far through to the centre of the earth it'd go...

sympathy click
i too am a slave to the little pastry bastards... in fact, it's lunch time; excuse me...

Pastry related products are my nemesis.
The bastards give me chronic heartburn; I've got to be so bloody careful with pastry.
