When I was a kid my dad always at us about wasting food.
If we went out to eat pizza he would give us a bad time about leaving the crusts. His favorite saying was you know son there is a little kid in Vietnam that would give his eye teeth for that piece of crust. So we would go ahead and eat it to shut him up.
One time we had went out to a Chinese restaurant and there was a older Chinese couple there eating and when they got up to leave dad made sure to point out that their plates were cleaned up.
So to keep this story short one time I took my parents out to dinner for pizza and I had noticed that my dad was not eating his crusts. I still to this day eat my crusts because of him and the way he raised me. So it became time to leave and I told them that there was one thing that had to be taken care of first.
I looked my dad square in the eye and told him that there was little kids in (insert country here) that would give their eye teeth for his crusts right now. And I kept a straight face the whole time. He promptly started eating away at his crusts and that was when I lost it and started laughing.
I believe my mother enjoyed it more than I did.
It is what it is
