THE PIZZA IS POLITICAL….Becks is unhappy with pizza lunches at work. She has five reasons for this, of which reasons #1-4 will either resonate with you or not depending on your own personal view of both pizza and lunch. Me, I like pizza fine for lunch. But then there’s this:
Social conventions dictate that women may have one slice of pizza, wait to make sure all of the men have had their fill, and only then, if there is any left, have another. Men are completely oblivious to this social convention and will eat all of the pizza.
There’s no question that I’m pretty oblivious to this kind of thing. But it still seems a little dubious. However, there are 204 comments so far on this subject over at Unfogged, and they seem to be going both ways. What say the rest of you?
