There Is No Pleasing Some People

As we enter the summer, we also find ourselves cleaning out our gardens ready for bbq season. Time for the ‘man’ of the house to give his woman a night off from the cooking  and also to protect her from the dangerous and dirty work of flame grilling.

So after checking the weather, setting a date, inviting family and friends round and double checking the weather, she looks forward to her evening off.

So after buying the food, preparing the salad, vegetables & fruits and creating a dessert, she looks forward to her evening off.

Mean while, he turns on the BBQ (or lights the fire) and  places the meat on the grill and helps himself to a well deserved beer.

She organises plates, cutlery and glasses and tends to the guests to ensure they are all comfortable and have something to drink

Meanwhile, the man turns the meat on the grill and helps himself to a well deserved beer.

She lays the table and brings out the food that was earlier prepared and informs the man that the meat is burning.

Mean while, he places the meat on the warming rack and helps himself to a well deserved beer.

The guests begin to help themselves to food and after eating,  the woman clears the table, the garden and does the washing up / loads the dishwasher.

Meanwhile, everyone thanks the man for his cooking efforts and asks her if she enjoyed her night off. Seeing her annoyed reaction, he concludes there is just no pleasing some people.

She  pours herself a well deserved glass of wine.
