You want to go to that new German restaurant for your birthday dinner? We'll say something like, “I mean, yeah, sounds good, I just hope there’s something I can eat there, but I’m sure it’ll be fine! But you know all they serve is sausage, right?” And we’ll show up to your birthday party, but not before attending a pity party for ourselves first.
Then, at the party, we'll drop passive-aggressive lines like, “Why do Germans eat so much meat?! But really, I’m SO fine sustaining myself on sauerkraut and soft pretzels. You just enjoy your wurst, birthday boy!!” We’re selfless, I tell you, SELFLESS.
