Set in our ways

Why do you do what you do?

I like this story, which I’ve seen attributed to David Byrne:

A woman is asked why she cuts the ends off a ham before baking it.

She explains that her mom always did so.

Her mom explains that she learned it from grandma.

And grandma says, “Silly, my pan was too short for the entire ham.”
