That’s How We’ve Always Done It Before

Filed under: Uncategorized — mdinh @ 11:13 am

Thanksgiving is coming up and to this day, I still remembered anecdote from former manager.

Daughter is helping mother prepare for Thanksgiving dinner which they do together for many years.

This year, daughter decided to ask, “Why do we cut off the turkey legs and wings before putting it the oven?”

Mom responded, “That’s how we’ve always done it before. Let’s call grandma and find out.”

On the phone with grandma and grandma’s response was, “I can’t believe you’re still doing that! I cut off the legs and wings because my oven was too small.”

Happy Thanksgiving.
