I just have no idea which ones are the newest. I don't care if there is no use by or that the "don't go off" I still don't trust it DF!! What if the tuna was off when it was packaged? I'm not going to chow down on salmonella that's been preserved in oil for the past 3 years
    I remember hearing awhile back that if a product lasted at least two years, then it didn't need a use-by date.

    The above may not necessarily be true, or even if it was when I heard it the rules might have changed between then and now.

    I know that my prosecco isn't champagne, but I still use it...sparkling white just doesn't have the same ring to it. I don't care if people think I don't know

    I agree sparkling wine doesn't have the same ring...so I call it bubbles

    I'm not sure if they don't know or simply ignore it, but DH's family don't wait for everyone to be seated before beginning their meal, nor do they wait for everyone to finish before leaving the table :-S

    This one kills me! I know it's pronounced Moette, but I know that most people DON'T know that. So if I say 'Moette' then I think that other people will think I'm stupid, and if I say "Moay" then I die a little as I know I'm saying it wrong. So now I try not to say it at all.

    "Yes, I'd love another glass!"
    "What are you drinking?"
    "Erm... Oh, I'll get it!"

    Luckily I prefer other champagnes...

    See I always thought this was the case but they had a story on the news the other night and the road people we're saying you have to indicate onto and off the roundabout.
    So if you are going straight you need too indicate right onto the roundabout and then left when your exiting from the correct lane.

    People are brought up with different table etiquette. DH's family get angry at me because I forget and start eating before everyone's at the table because as I was growing up we were taught to eat the meal as it was put in front of us. If you were brought up to wait for everyone I imagine it would look extremely rude lol.
