Why is it that people pick up chips or whatever with their hands when there are a pair of tongs in the bowl? Would you use the tongs?

I would use tongs. They have no manners.

I agree. It's about common courtesy because the person waiting has no idea if your hands are clean or not.

...just curious. Why would you use your hands if the tongs are already in the bowl and you don't have to even reach anywhere else to get them? I understand that you wash your hands, but not everyone does.
