If you have a friend or relative who eat bad, flop, eats with his mouth open, make noise when eating, you'll do observation, or you will avoid eating same table with him? If he speak while eating, if the upper neighbor hears when he sips soup, you will tell him something not to nice, or just try to avoid him? Of course when he put his hands in food , has less and stick the feet too, you will make observation? or just don t care? Do you know a person like this?

Many of my friends done. I considered sometimes those gestures depend on the situation or place where we eat. However I will not exempt those who chew food noisy. I corrected them immediately because I feel they're like a pig.

Hi, icesmile. I do not just notice, I get irritated by people who do not have dining manners and etiquette. I do not appreciate someone talking to me when their mouth is full, I hate to see a mouth open while chewing food and make sloppy sounds, also in sipping soup and drinking beverages. To me, it shows indifference and lack of respect to everyone else around who are also eating. Sometimes, I can tolerate this behavior and sometimes, I make a request to them upfront. It depends on the person.

a few people who made sound chpchp........chp very odd while eating, I can't tolerate to share the dinning table with them. Many men and women sip a tea or cofee sud....sudddd is also very irritating sound. i think they enjoyed the taste or sound. this thing is very bad or looks very awkward while you you do these things in the public. no one wants to accompany you. this is any didease or lack social etiquettes.

No, but that is one thing i will not tolerate. If you don't have manners whilst at the table or wherever you eat, where others can see or actually hear you eat, i will slap you so hard, after that you will have manners. That really is digusting.

I know some people that do that and, although I feel what they're doing is rude - I don't want to be rude back! For a lot of people it's something they do without being fully aware of it so I don't want to feel anger or agitation towards them for it. But sometimes, it really bothers me.

I have a friend who came from a very well off family. It's amazing to me that his eating habits aren't a bit more... refined. He's a very well mannered person and is really nice and genuine. The only problem is he chews with his mouth open. I don't understand how he doesn't notice that he's doing it when I tend to be really aware of my etiquette at the table.

Icebad, I know some people who eat that way, but I just let them be and don't tell them directly about their manners. In our country eating with the bare right hand is common (it's part of our culture), and we usually like to eat that way because the food tends to taste even more delicious.

Hey icesmile!I have two people in my life that I need to complain about! One is my boyfriend! He is a really noisy eater and I tell him that all the time! He just doesn't realize it, I guess! He makes a sucking noise with his teeth that drives me insane!I have to tell him every time we eat or even when he eats to stop sucking his teeth! Another one is my girlfriend! She is always eating when we are on the phone! I can't stand that! If you want to eat, hang up the damn phone! And when we go out to eat, she is always making such a mess! She doesn't know how to use a napkin! I feel like I'm with a child having to tell her to wipe her damn face! Sorry for the rant! But, I'm very picky about the people I eat with! I eat like a lady!

if it is a friend or a relative then i will say something about that. but do you know that other people of different cultures really eats that way? for example japanese east their ramen noisy. the more noise they make the better for that means you are saying thank you that the ramen is very good. weird but true. that is my wife's experience when she was at japan. but she got used to see and hear people eating with such noise. here in our country some people eat without using fork and spoons. eating rice and viand not using spoon and fork can be kinda messy. but again if that is my brother or sister i am sure i will say something on how he/she eats. i dont like seeing messy people eat. if i am in a restorant then i guess i will just ignore.... not sure if i can

hi icesmile! Haha! I don't have a friend or relative who behave like those you mentioned...hihi! It's disgusting. I don't want to dine with someone who eats disgracefully. If I happen to meet one I will definitely tell them their behavior and how it disgusts me. Hihi! I don't know, for me it is not right and I can't take people like that.

Unfortunately, yes! I'm a chef. I appreciate good table manners. I've been out to dinner with people that have done some really crazy things at the table. I was at a restaurant with an older friend that took his false teeth out at the table. That was the one instance that stands out the most. Other than that it's pretty much been the normal disgraces. Chewing with an open mouth, talking with a full mouth, I took a date to one of my friends restaurants (a 5 star restaurant) and he brought out an appetizer sampler he had prepared. She took a bite of something she didn't like, spit it into a napkin, and told him, in a rather loud voice, that it was the most disgusting thing she had ever tasted! That was our last date. Never insult your host! I still haven't lived that little scene down. So yes, I do go to great lengths to not eat with people that can't pull themselves together at a meal. If you're a pig in other aspects of your life I can get past it. But please, not while I'm eating! :)

I think it's better just to tell them. I mean I bet they would feel horrible if suddenly u just avoid them, and they don't know why? I mean, if no one ever tells them, they won't ever realize it and they won't change. so it's worth telling them. Some ppl might be insulted, but they'll get over it.

oh i am not as modest as other people when it comes to bad behavior. i tell them straight on that i am not comfortable with such behavior and compare them to something obnoxious to make them grasp how disgusted i am, and usually this works because they suddenly stop the behavior instantly.

It was clearly bothering me if chewed and cause noise, just tell to my friend to eat with a polite and quiet. I have a friend like that, it was a his habit made a sound when swallowing or chewing food and can not be eliminated.

It's definitely horrible to witness someone doing that and I would not want to share a meal with that person. Thankfully I live alone and so I don't have any problems like that. I always eat with my mouth closed, I was always taught to do this as a child and it's not very nice to look at when someone is doing totally the opposite. Still, someone who is doing that may not know any different! It's probably the way that they have been brought up. I would hesitate to mention good manners to someone doing that though as there's likely to be offense caused and it's probably more trouble that it's worth! Andrew

Table manners is not really a big issue when we're just hanging around with my friends at home. It's not a formal thing. We all are quite messy especially when we eat pizza, some junk foods, crispy ones, soda while watching our favorite shows or DVD. Not really a big deal because we tend to talk and chitchat a lot and it's inevitable to guard all those stuff. Except for having dinner or meal on the table. basic is basic and we still chitchat a lot while uhm, eating. Well, it's no big deal. I guess I'm lucky that I don't have friends whom I can't tolerate eating with. We can also eat with our bare hands like what Indians do (we of course wash our hands for that.) There's a saying, "Do what the Romans do..." So, I guess that works too with so many unwritten laws in this land, I think what we should do is to be tolerant sometimes and try to look beyond the picture. My grandfather wanted a noisier plate for dinner and others are not comfortable with that. I guess we just have to determine when is well for everything and just enjoy the food served on the table, thank God for the blessing.
