That experience led Fordice to ask Curious Minnesota: Why won’t anyone take the last piece?

It comes down to basic politeness, said Estelle Thielen of Eagan, who would never dream of taking the last piece.

.
“It’s Minnesota Nice,” she said. “If you take the last piece, nobody else can have any.”

This was also practiced in our household when I was a kid growing up in rural Western Pennsylvania. Around the age of ten I finally asked my Mom 'If everyone saves the last piece for someone else, then who will ever eat the last piece?' She didn't have an answer for that...... biggrin
