New Standard Operating Procedures

BBQ RULES
We are about to enter the BBQ season. Therefore it
is important to refresh your memory on the etiquette of this
sublime outdoor cooking activity . When a man volunteers to
do the BBQ the following chain of events are put into
motion:
(1) The woman buys the food.
(2) The woman makes the salad, prepares the vegetables, and
makes dessert.
(3) The woman prepares the meat for cooking,
places it on a tray along with the necessary cooking
utensils and sauces, and takes it to the man who is lounging
beside the grill - beer in hand.
(4) The woman remains
outside the compulsory three meter exclusion zone where the
exuberance of testosterone and other manly bonding
activities can take place without the interference of the
woman. Here comes the important part:
(5) THE MAN PLACES THE MEAT ON THE GRILL.
(6) The woman goes inside to organise the plates and
cutlery.
(7) The woman comes out to tell the man that the
meat is looking great. He thanks her and asks if she will
bring another beer while he flips the meat Important again:
(8) THE MAN TAKES THE MEAT OFF THE GRILL AND HANDS IT TO THE
WOMAN.
(9) The woman prepares the plates, salad, bread, utensils,
napkins, sauces, and brings them to the table.
(10) After eating, the woman clears the table and does the
dishes. And most important of all:
(11) Everyone PRAISES the MAN and THANKS HIM for his cooking
efforts.
12) The man asks the woman how she enjoyed ' her
night off ', and, upon seeing her annoyed reaction,
concludes that there's just no pleasing some women.

Sorry Dave. You've missed out "wife brings man more beer" between each stage. Plus "wife phones fire brigade to extinguish shed fire".

It is if the wife doesn't keep bringing out those beers.

Re: New Standard Operating Procedures

You've also missed out the final stage:-
Wife fields phone calls from angry friends and neighbours complaining of food poisioning after eating underdone chicken drumsticks and sausages with the words: "Well, I'm sorry, but no-one else has complained. Perhaps there's a bug going around?"

Man blames the salad.
