I'm a picky eater I guess. Although I also pick up some flavours quicker than my siblings (e.g. for me it's too much spice while they say they barely taste it or when there's paprika in it, it ruins the whole dish for me).
I always blamed my parents for not forcing me to eat everything on my plate, but I see now with my two nephews, that it's probably both. One of my nephews doesn't want to eat meat at all, he refuses. He does have to eat three pieces (he's 3 years old) and manages but it does take him a lot of effort. The same with other food, even if he liked it before, you can never tell if he will eat it again.
The 1 year old on the other hand eats everything and gets very angry when he sees someone eating something that he doesn't have. Even if he doesn't like it, he will just keep on eating it.
So I think that, as a parent, the most you can do is teach your children to always try everything and to be polite about it and hope that one day they will actually learn to eat most things.
I nominate my work for an SS award.
They refuse to hire nonstudents to be hosts (manning the cash register and cleaning cinema rooms) and then get upset when they don't find enough people to work during exam periods.
A friend of mine wanted to come back parttime, because she only found a parttime teaching job and was told that they don't hire nonstudents. Which is their right, but only two days later they send an email to all hosts that they are disappointed with us because they can't find anyone willing to work more during exam periods.
Even if you work 1 or 2 days extra they get mad since it isn't enough. (Which for most of us made us work 5 days of our 14 days we had to study)...
