So, living in the first world countries that each of us are respectively from, we have a certain privilege as to what goes in and out of our bodies in relation to food. (no funny business here, talkin' about food. :v)

I've come to dislike a lot of people who complain that the food that they're served is not up to their standards in comparison to what they've eaten before and go ahead to throw out their perfectly good food. I know, we're not currently going hungry, we have more than enough food at the moment; but what happens when they don't have the luxury to have that Fillet Mignonette they feel so entitled to have grace their taste buds? What happens when all we have at the moment is a can of Chef Boyardee and no "organicly-natural-naturally gluten free-lactose free-no additives" Noodles with your choice of special sauce?

A friend of mine from my unit actually had the ovaries to say that she wasn't payed to be fed dog food while she was on duty.Granted, it was an unorthodox lasagna, a bit on the spicy side with burrito meat; I still think it's uncalled for her to think that since she's in the Army, she is entitled to better than average food. It honestly wasn't as bad as she said it was, but either way I'd eat it.

I don't know, I might be a tad bit over the top when I see people wasting food, but I just think we should appreciate what we have and not be as picky as we are. We never know when we're gonna hit a snag in our jobs, or whether or not we'll be in the middle of a disaster where our resources are limited. Fuck, if we were to be in a battlefield or whatever, we'd have to be grateful for any scraps of food and water we'd have to come by.

Anywho, what do you think about the picky eaters from around the block? Are you one?

If I can't eat something I approve of, then I just wont eat. Hunger doesn't bother me nearly as much as eating some additive filled crap that would probably just make me throw up eating. If I die then I die.

Definitely could be considered one from what I eat. while I have my limits on what I choose to eat I well know if I'm not able to get food of same "quality" I would have to make due with what I have available. As for what I think... I don't really care too much to have anything to complain or complement them about as long as nobody's forcing there ideals on me I'm fine.

I remember the time there was pig fat in one of the dishes served at my aunt's party... I had to put it in my mouth on one side... And then chew with the other side and focus on not swallowing the fat... After five minutes or so I just went to the bathroom, wrapped it in tissue and put it into my pocket.... Blew my nose a few times and wrapped that all up too... and then... After sitting back on the table for around 15 minutes or so, I just threw it all into the bin.....................................

I try to eat everything though.

Was brought up that way.

lol. Bless her heart. She's lucky she didn't join the Marine Corps. They'd have told her to "clean the sand out her vagina" and asked her "do we need to issue you a straw, so you can suck it the fuck up?"

Then again, I was a combat MOS, without any female Marines... and that really is a different ball-game than non-combat, POG, personnel.

Sometimes we can't help it. There are things I'd want to try and try it and the texture is weird and it gets hard to swallow.

Fillet Mignonette or steak, never had any of those but I would say I am a picky eater. I'm just not rich enough to act like one

If it looks all bad, i just ask for a drink. Your friend didn't have a choice hence why she'd complain.

I guess I really don't care if someone is a picky eater or not. If they don't like what they're served, they can either eat it, starve, or find something else. It's not like it affects me.

And I'm kinda picky on what I eat. I try not to be, but if I don't want to eat something, I don't. I'm not in a situation where I will starve to death so why does it matter.

I have always been a picky eater, I just can't stand the taste of a lot of food. I don't eat much meat ( I live off chicken ) and haven't had beef for about 6 years now, the texture and taste just isn't my thing. I can understand why people don't like picky eaters but I just can't get over the way things taste. Its really hard to explain but I can't help that I am picky and neither can any picky eater.

Bahaha, our NCOIC, also a female, chewed her shit out for that. :v

Also, her not having a choice is no reason to complain. We're in the National Guard, it's not like we have to sacrifice ourselves that much. Which is why I say she has no grounds to complain about food when it was just a 4-day thing. >.>

Ugh, I don't even want to imagine what she'd be like in a deployment.

This. Omg. You have no idea how much I dislike people who claim they have a gluten allergy and eat stuff that actually has it and don't even have a mild reaction to it. I mean, allergies really are different if they actually have a reaction to it, which is a whole different story, but meh.
