As my dad use to say, Here you have it otherwise we will have to throw it out. We still tell my son in law Here Jon we will have to throw it out if you don't take it home. Then when he's not looking I eat it and play dumb

Depends on what it is, if it's sweet and not for Diabetics...Shrek, the Diabetic, gets it. If it's leftovers, I get to eat them for the next three or four days.

It usually sits in the fridge until it morphs, then gets thrown out. DH is notorious for leaving 1.5 tablespoons of stuff in a container and thoughtfully putting it back in the fridge.

When I tell him to finish up (fill in the blank), he tells me there's not enough. Go figure.

Ok, this all reminded me of a joke (also told by my dad's family--I'm sure I've told it here at some point too).

A family is sitting at the dinner table (dad, mom, and 5 boys). There are enough pork chops for each to have one, and one left over. All the boys are eyeing that last pork chop, but they know it would be rude to grab it. Suddenly the lights go out. When they come back on a few seconds later, the dad has his fork stuck into the pork chop, and there are 5 forks sticking into the back of his hand.

Here it again depends on what it is. Dad is diabetic and DH is gluten/soy/dairy intolerant and I eat just about anything. So, if it is a nice diabetic dessert (specially chocolate), I make sure Dad has it. If it is something DH likes and can have (dessert, snack or main), I let him have it. Everything else is either mine or the dogs'.

We are an equal opportunity leftovers family.

I was raised that Daddy got it; after all, he paid for it, he worked for it, it was his. And although our circumstances are radically different, I do tend to let husband have it if he wants it. One time a BIL cleaned the platters at my parents' house, and my sis let him know that just wasn't done. You don't dig in before Daddy starts eating, and you ask him if he wants it before you grab the last bite.

I grew up the same way. Shrek doesn't understand why I always stand back and let him go first when dishing up dinner. It's a habit I just cannot break.

Luckily, husband absolutely understands and never digs in before Dad and never grabs the last bite when we're visiting. Of course my BILs are all young enough to be my husband's kids, and most wouldn't know manners if they were hit in the face with them. I don't know ... a little thing called respect.
