Here are my top five table manners that everyone should know, because we've all eaten with someone who has no table etiquette. And more often than not, it's really gross, unappetizing and annoying to eat with a person like that. And you don't want that person to be you!
- Don't talk with food in your mouth! No one wants to see what you're eating once it's left your plate. Chances are it will come flying back out while you're trying to talk and chew at the same time, and there's nothing grosser than that!
- Don't chew with your mouth open. See above reasons. Also, smacking your food while you chew is not a pretty sound.
- Turn off your cell phone. Eating only takes a little while. You can be away from your phone for that long, then run and check it ...
