We now have a fork, a spoon and a knife. The rich people can have lots of food but the people who are not that rich has to eat a loaf of bread for breakfast, lunch or dinner. In the past times, people didn’t have any table manners at all but we now have table manners that we have to follow when eating. Table manners are important during eating time. One of the manners is that people shouldn’t burp at the table. When we finish our dish and start to get full, people start burping everywhere but burping was not aloud. Burping in front of families or customers is a bad manner showing to the family or the customer. Another table manner is no spitting across the table. If people start spitting all over the place, it will get dirty and spitting shows bad manner of that people. Spitting is not an appropriate thing to do. We have to be careful of manners during meals. We have these sauce kind of thing nowadays. We might eat something that we have to dip meat inside. For example, ketchup, salt and other type of thing. In our times, dipping meat or any other stuff directly into the salt dish is not an appropriate thing to do. Picking ones teeth in front of the people is inappropriate. We pick our teeth with fingers when something is stuck between ones teeth. It happens when we eat kind of food like meat, and other things that cause the teeth. If a piece of meat is stuck between a tooth and a tooth, we should take it out using our fingers. Picking ones teeth in front of the table is showing bad manners. It could also mean that they are kind of bored and maybe the food was not so delicious. These bad manners is not aloud. There is another type of manner. Keeping breakfast, lunch or dinner time is very important. We must tell the reason if someone is late.
