Subject: RE: Help: Wearing hats or caps ; Manners?
Table manners, that is another one... I hope I've got this right but I remember Jeri once telling me of a time when she was stationed in the UK and going out for a meal with some of her colleagues and they got strange looks from the other people. I think they were eating pizza with their hands rather than with knife and fork - presuamably socialy acceptable in the US but not in the UK at the time...

As for me and table manners, if for example I really enjoyed the gravy, I will lick the plate at home - why should I have to waste it if I am eating out?
