I just use my hands.
Thankfully my relatives have better manners than I do, and I at least know to use the freaking serving utensil provided with the dish.
I love just my imidiate family members...
What you said in the opening is absolutely disgusting. Someone is that theroid that they don't care enough about others to keep their fluids off food that others will eat. Man, that's a situation where you need cameras to point it out to them in a way that they cannot dispute. That's nasty and--if he/she does not see it that way--then others in the home and others will agree(not wanting them as a guest). Narcissistic and stomach-turning to even think about.
Did u at least bring it to their attention while it was happening?
So u rather let them continue their behavior so u can B!TCH about it afterwards? ...don't complain about something that u could have EASILY prevented
If u don't have the "u know whats" to fix it during, then don't complain about it after, I agree your family was improper, but you're b!tching about something that could've EASILY been ..FIXED ON THE SPOT
Well of course not THAT way u idiot ....do it with class
You're a grown adult, figure it out ...it ain't ROCKET SCIENCE
I'm not gonna tell u, throw some ideas at me n I'll tell u if they're good or not
U never get anywhere unless U TRY
The fact that you're lazy n want people to think FOR u & won't think of things YOURSELF, is EXACTLY y you'll never get ANYWHERE in life & also y you're in the state of mind you're in when answering some of the questions the WAY u do
Im not gonna do the work for u, u don't learn anything that way, come up with something n I will tell u good or not, when you're ready, let me know
Yeah it seems nasty. And it is bad manners. But what ya gonna do? Actually it seems worse than it is. Your digestive tract can usually handle a little spit swap. You're more likely to catch a cold or flu virus from the utensil handles - to your hands - to your eyes / nose.
LOL I've heard about that. And people I know have touched their eyes and got burned real bad. Here's a tip for chopping hot peppers and avoiding onion smell on the fingers too. Latex glove. Chop and toss. Works great.
That's nasty and is a matter of respect. People--esp. those you benefit off of--should be respected. Their behavior is true narcissism. How could anyone get any more selfish than that? I don't see how they wouldn't deny this without proof. Don't say anything until you have proof. When you do, cover yourself and tell others that you trust to keep your secret. Then, confront them with a family member--to keep things from getting violent. That's like someone digging in their nose and shaking your hands; truly gross!
Can't say I've had that problem. People just use the serving utensil that's with it. It does annoy me when they mix them up and get different stuff in other dishes.
You know what I don't like. When I spend all that time preparing good food and they nibble on appetizers and fill p so they can't eat the dinner. I've stopped providing predinner snacks.
Oh my, awful............what to do next.
Tacky ill mannered clods.
i don't have that problem , but i do agree with you
Well I've been told everything is relative but its good to have relatives around the holidays than not... Guess putting up with some stuff comes with the territory... But yes, this would bug me too...
