    Sit straight and try not to lean on the table.
    Keep your elbows off the table and close to the body when you are eating.

    However, when you stop to talk, it is okay to rest your elbows on the table and lean forward.

  • 14. No, No’s
    Don’t salt your food before you taste
    Don’t push your plate or chair away
    Don’t rearrange or stack your dirty dishes
    Never tilt your chair
    Don’t ask people where they are going when they get up from the table
    If you burp, excuse your self to no one particular
    Never crumble crackers in your soup or blow on it
    Don’t chew ice or other inedible parts of the meal
    Put butter first on your plate, not directly onto your bread
    To get the last bit of soup, tilt the bowl away from you- the Tug boat goes out
  • 15. Yes, Yes’s
    Always pass the salt & pepper together
    Need to get something out of your mouth- use your tongue & fork
    When in doubt, use a utensil rather than your fingers
    Hair in your food- don’t spoil someone else’s meal by talking about it
    Food in teeth, blow nose, rearrange hair- go to the restroom!
    Don’t like your meal- who cares- tell the host you do!
  • 16. Official diner
    • Inviting
    Single in restaurant…
    Married at home…
  • 17. Words to the Wise
    Nothing that touched your mouth should ever directly touch the table
    When you are finished- place your silverware at 4 :20o’clock
    If you spill something don’t make a big deal about it- offer to pay for cleaning
    If you decide to pass on food being offered, simply say “No Thanks”- no explanation is needed
    Learn to try new foods when you have the opportunity- you may be confronted with unfamiliar choices in the future

    Civility costs nothing and buys everything.
    Lady Mary Worley Montague
    A person should be allowed a few redeeming vices, but never bad manners
