Is it impolite to talk when you are eating or have food in your mouth? I was taught at an early age that it was? Your impressions?

I think it is very rude and inapropriate to talk while having food in your mouth. I must have been taught this at an early age, because I cannot remember it ever beeing ok. I know plenty of adults that seem to think is is ok. They bother my quiete a bit when I have to share a meal with them. In fact, it bothers me far more than smoke.

You are very right. Such a practice is totally impolite and uncalled for just as smoking in public.

it's really impolite to talk when the mouth if full of food but it's still politeness when you talk while you are eating. i see nothing wrong with that. there's a big difference when you talk while eating and when you talk when your mouth is full with food i suppose. conversation can still be carried out during every meal. i haven't seen yet people eating silently without talking to each other unless it is really prohibited in some cases. we were also taught by our parents and in school courtesy of the subject 'good manners and right conduct' to refrain from talking when our mouth is full of food because it may lead to choking, produce hiccups or burps.

Mirror yourself and see whether talking with your mouth full make you better looking. It is not only impolite it is disgusting and ugly.
