Thread Name: BS: Can we discuss the Class system in UK?
Subject: RE: BS: Can we discuss the CLass system in UK?
I have seen folks in resturants who never seem to put the knife down and are extremely adept at transferring food to the back of the fork for eating, though and this skill seems to be very British and not continental. Watching an Englishman eat fish while skillfully dissecting the bones out and managing to carry on a conversation at the same time is akin to watching a fine surgeon replace a heart valve. Maybe I should just quit gawking in resturants! grin
