The meal you have of an evening.. 09:26 - Aug 20 with 4839 viewsartsbossbeard

...what is it's official title?

Lucan, who considers himself an educated man wrongly refers to it as "dinner" whilst the sane members of our whatsapp group call it by it's correct title of "tea".

Settle an argument here, fellow blues.

....put it this way if you want to go out for a meal in the evening at a nice restaurant, you wouldn't phone them up and say "can I book a table for tea please?"

Would you?

Breakfast
Lunch
Dinner

There would be exceptions for certain thick Northerners obviously, but most of them think that McDonalds is a restaurant, so they can't really be included.

Dinner. Tea is something you drink.

Tea is just the shortened version of ‘Afternoon Tea’, consisting of limp, often crustless, sandwiches, french fancy cakes and perhaps even battenberg.

Dinner is the main meal of the evening.

Genuinely not def info. There are more than 3 meal times in a day...

Breakfast up to 10am from whenever you get up
Brunch 10-12
Lunch 12-3
Afternoon tea 3-6
Dinner 6-9
Supper 9-12
Midnight feast 12-1
Anything after this is night shift territory and they can call it what they want.

My theory is that "teatime" came about as kids will have a meal after school, thus at "(afternoon) tea time" and carried that into adulthood, whereas those who don't get home til after 6pm recognise it as dinner.

Completely unscientific theory

And so as the loose-bowelled pigeon of time swoops low over the unsuspecting tourist of destiny, and the flatulent skunk of fate wanders into the air-conditioning system of eternity, I notice it's the end of the show

Brunch isn't a thing - it's either a late breakfast or an early lunch depending on what you eat

This is the perfect example of why authoritarianism is better than libertarianism.

With everybody free to go about calling their evening meal whatsoever they like there is mayhem. Confusion reigns, there is no order. Dinner could be the mid day meal, it could be the evening meal. Tea could be a dink, a fancy mid-afternoon snack with small sandwiches nd cakes or a full on evening nosh up.

This is ridiculous.

When I am dictator (benign) I shall order that the main evening meal only be called tea (even when booking a restaurant table), unless it is a lighter meal served after 9pm when it shall be supper.

Anyone contravening this edict and calling it dinner, will be forced to miss tea and go hungry because dinner was hours ago, at lunchtime.
