I had some fish and chips earlier.

Had mushy peas with it. Felt sad. Mind you it was cheaper. Why do they do that? Large Haddock, chips and peas £7.45, but Large Haddock, chips and Gravy £8.35. Next time I'll make sure I've got the funds for a proper feed.

Same reason as ciggies being really expensive

I wouldn't shocked if you confessed to rolling in gravy

(whatever you do behind closed doors is fine btw)

It's only an offence at a granular level.

I stopped reading at mushy peas before I got any angrier

Just got back. They said haddock, chips and gravy is £7.35 if you promise not to put the gravy on the fish, otherwise you have to pay £1.00 FPT per fish. They knew you couldn’t be trusted though.

I'm happy to report that I got the same deal, but for gravy, this week.

I could just eat that - looks bloody lovely to me.

Kept a respectable amount of distance between gravy and fish too so all you naysayers can **** off 😄

It was. I was struck during its consumption,  that in these times of Covi, Murcan electioneering, Brexit, war and strife that pure beauty can exist in an imperfect, cruel world.

Least the fish looks fish-like today. 

I've been using m'tredder to speed home from the chippy, rather than what I used to do, which was walk back. Preserves the batter. #Gravylife

Following on from the gravy and chips debate. We've just finished off a lovely roast beef and all the trimmings with a couple of slices of bread and gravy. 

Is this equally frowned upon or is it an acceptable use of gravy?

It was always talked about at work by the older guys on site

Gravy and bread I can accept, chicken dinner for example keeping some meat, stuffing and gravy to make a warm sandwich with later on the night that's obvious

Bread and the meat drippings though...thats a no from me

Seems perfectly normal to me, gravy as it was always intended. It was not a Gravy and CHips debate, this is also perfectly normal. The perverts are the ones who have gravy with... fish, gravy and friggin fish, the sick bastards
