  1. I was on the phone with my girlfriend while I was eating kiwi (fruit) and I remarked that I have a scratchy throat every time I eat it. “You must be allergic to kiwi,” she said.

    “Yeah maybe, but I like it too much to not buy it.”

    A few months later, I prepared kiwi for dinner for my girlfriend. “Ummm…. you’re supposed to peel the kiwi.”

  2. I used to try and be funny by making the recipient the butt of the joke. It took me a long time to realize that people don’t actually like getting made fun of. Make them an ally in your joke, and they’ll love you for it.

  3. More of a phrase.

    For years I said “threw me through a loop”

    My buddy told me I sounded stupid and he thought for years I was trolls.

    I still hate how it’s not what I was saying.

  4. Eating steak.

    When I was a kid, my mother had overcooked pork chops and I complained that it was hard to cut the meat. (…using a butter knife) She told me that the meat has a grain, and it’s easier to cut with the grain.

    While that’s *technically true*, it’s also wrong. When you’re eating steak (beef, or pork chops, or similar stuff) you should cut *against* the grain of the meat. Yes, that’s harder to do, which is why steakhouses and fancy restaurants give you that horking big serrated knife. Saw against the grain of the meat. Why? Because when you *chew* meat, your *teeth* are cutting the meat, and you want the chewing to be easier. Cutting the “hard” way = more tender and easier chewing.
