Can you tolerate people who eat like pigs?

Can you sit at the same table with someone who judging by the noises he/she makes should rather be eating in a pigsty and still have your meal, maybe even enjoy it just the same? I can´t, it really puts me off.

No I can not and I would mot tolerate it I would actually say something, or I would get up and not eat. It would put me of my Food and I am sure that Manners do not cost anything yet. How they eat when they are alone is their Problem but in Company I would say they should use their Manners.

Definitely NOT, besides being totally rude and uncalled for it also puts me off my food. I have sat at tables where people have slapped their lips constantly which drives me cuckoo or they are like a human waste disposal machine, open wide and they shovel the food in. My cats have better manners than one of my ex friends. I think I would have rather of put the cats bowl on the table and my friends dish on the floor they were so bad. Needless to say they didn't get a second invite for dinner!

I would find it very annoying if they were eating like pigs and making strange and awful noises while they were eating. I do not have a problem with people eating a lot but do not need any sound effects to go along with the eating. :-) I definitely agree with you there. Some people eat so much that they belch or fart which is also gross.

I would stay and finish the meal, but I won't be eating with him again. Well, at least not in the same table. I want to have a pleasant meal and I don't want it to be spoiled by some people who don't observe table manners.

I have no tolerance for those kinds of people. You wonder if they were hatched in the field or something. Didn't they ever get taught manners?

I suppose some didn´t get taught manners and others choose to ignore them.

Hmmmm, I have eaten with some guys that eat like pigs. I'm okay with it, I just don't pay attention and eat my own meal.

I don't mind if the person eats and eats and eats. It's when they make those noises and smack their food, that I cannot stand. I won't say a word about it, but if I'm nauseated, I have to leave ASAP or we're all going to get grossed out.
