Chewing Loudly – Not too much. Double-Dipping – Not at all. Taking Food From Someone Elseâ€™s Plate – It’s fine as long as it’s not my plate. I’m like Joey Tribbiani when it comes to sharing food. Scraping Their Plate Loudly to Get Every Last Bit of Food – That’s fine with me…mangia! Eating With Their Fingers – I love to do this…either that or chopsticks! Not Eating Everything on Their Plate – That actually kind of gets to me, must be how I was raised. From a family with 7 kids you only got what you got and you better darn well eat it. Mixing All Food Together Instead of Eating Parts Separately – I used to be a ‘uge sectional eater (eating everything seperatly and not moving on to the next until the prior was finished) but now I love to mix anything and everything! My biggest pet peeve really is unhealthy eating….and that’s not to say people shouldn’t eat whatever the hell they want but when you’re over 300 lbs there is no reason to be eating 2 Double Quarter Pounder meals from MacDonald’s or chairing up to a table alone at Hometown (Old Country) Buffet. Reply WIBIA July 2nd, 2009 1. People that order steak well done. 2. People that cut more than 3 pieces of steak off at one time. 3. Fat kids eating at places that make them fat. 4. People chewing on a bones at a nice restaurant (excluding ribs.) 5. People that have more than 2 requests to modify the dish (can you leave off the…) 6. Fat people that only eat half of their meal because it is a business dinner. 7. Women that order salads on the first date, but the next 6 dates order everything but salad. 8. People that can’t pronounce things on the menu and instead say “steak au whatever..” Reply DAVE ID July 3rd, 2009 Noisy open mouth eating will get instant reprimand from me. I’ve literally told people at work “You’re disgusting, go chew your food away from me” Reply Bear Silber July 3rd, 2009 Is there anything someone can do at a restaurant that you’ll actually stop them and mention it to them? …a stranger I mean. Reply Miles July 3rd, 2009 1. When I make dinner for my lady, and it is nice and hot, and she eats her salad first while dinner cools. 2. When people add hot sauce or salt to food they have not yet tasted. Reply Insanewiches July 3rd, 2009 I can’t stand it when people eat at lightning speed and then rush me to do the same. I came from a family where you eat, enjoy and relax. Reply Karen July 5th, 2009 I have managed to train my husband to eat without letting the utensils touch his teeth. The sound of metal on someone’s teeth drive me batshit. I also dislike using plastic utensils or plastic cups. Meat overcooked is just a sin. Moo-ing still, for me is appropriate. Reply jen July 5th, 2009 All of the above plus When people do not close their lips around and scrape their teeth on their fork with every bite. Reply Joanne July 6th, 2009 All of them…depending on the day, one may bother me more than the others. Worst of all is the sound of popcorn eaters in movie theaters, chowing down on the stuff with open mouths. Just because they like to hear themselves eat, doesn’t mean the rest of us do. Oh don’t get me started! Reply Frank July 9th, 2009 While watching people chew with their mouths open disgusts me, what irkes me most are people who do not know how to handle utensils. Maybe it is some sort of European method or whatnot but must people hold their fork like Jason Vorhees and stab a piece of meat like it is a victim. Reply Sam February 8th, 2011 People who list off the calorie count of every single thing on their plate. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
