Do you take your own silverware to restaurants?

I do. I used to work in foodservice places and alot of times, they do not sanitize utensils properly. Have you ever got silverware at a restaurant and noticed dried food on it? Ewwwww. I just dont trust it, these things are going in peoples mouth and you have no idea what they may have. And I always get a straw for my drinks and I request styrofoam cups. I just dont trust it that much. What about you?

I don't do this, but may do so in the future. I've noticed some bad cleaning of silverware, food stuffs, and other items but only rarely. I've even had some silverware comeback smelling too much like cleanser (making the food taste horrible and the obvious scent).

i HATE using other people's silverware, even at my house i tend to use chopsticks that i can toss or run through the dishwasher, for some reason i find chopsticks cleaner than other things...
