→ do cell phones at the dinner table bother you? elbows on the table? hats on at the table? what dinner etiquette is a no no for you? i’m not a big fan of cell phones at dinner, on call? babysitter? understandable.. have it on vibrate and if a call comes in step away from the table and other diners.
what about the person that says it’s business, i have to take it, but they don’t excuse themselves, they stay, everyone is then silent waiting for them to be done talking to whoever.. it’s disruptive (and rude). you may have business, or any number of things, but kindly get up and mosey on along somewhere else to chat about it and dinner can go along uninterrupted, please & thank you. what about when you’re at home, if someone finishes before another and gets up and goes about their merry way, bad etiquette or no biggie? funny noises while eating (remember matt dillon humming as he ate in the flamingo kid?), kids screaming..take them outside or ride it out? what’s your don’t ever do this at my dinner table rules?
