I told my mom about my concern that here is this otherwise great professional man I am going out with who eats like a pig. And then she said, "It's a man thing."
Huh? Oh? Just a man thing? Yes, it's just a man thing. "But I know some men who are really good abut this."
"Yes, but your grandmother always had a hard time with your grandfather. He used to eat really fast and she always had to tell him to slow down. And I always have to tell your father not to pile his plate high at a buffet. You can always go back. He's really terrible. I also have to tell him not to lick his knife and things like that. It's just a man thing."
Ah. So it's just a man thing. I guess I have to wonder how much I actually like men. I've also seen a few women be really terrible. A friend of mine smacked her food and licked her fingers when we went out recently. Perhaps it's an area where all of us slip.
I really like men. In fact, there are some women with really terrible table manners also. And, by the way, I'm still with the guy. In fact, his table manners have improved, though he still slips sometimes.
