Description: Imagine going to a really nice restaurant and your date slurps and belches his way through the meal, I don’t care how cute the person is, how do you get past that kind of behavior? We want our table manners to become so effortless that our focus during a meal is on the people we are with not which fork to use. Slurping a cup of coffee in a coffee shop is going to cause glares from those around you. Blowing one’s nose into a napkin at the table can turn off dining companions. We owe it to each other to eat with good table manners. Good table manners show respect for others.
