Ok maybe not punch BUT DEFO tell them how rude,bad mannered and annoying to anyone within a six mile radius it is?
Kids or elderly I don't care....it's RUDE.

OwlLady Thu 15-Nov-12 18:04:05

and yes actually I do. I have over a decade of experience and yes, people do sit there and judge ALL THE TIME

<carries on perfect life with a bit of humor and understanding that having a little grrrr moment about someone who is perfectly capable of eating nicely and yet still does not is not an attack on some without the ability to do so for whatever reason>

Oh sorry...elderly is disabled?

OwlLady Thu 15-Nov-12 18:05:43

you said people with false teeth in your post above mine twinkle, or did you mean people in their 30s with false teeth?

twinkletoescare Thu 15-Nov-12 18:07:50

I have two false teeth from having them knocked out in an accident as a child, my friend is 26 and has a full set of false teeth due to poor dental hygiene from her foster carers.

Don't put your own hang up son me because I'm not interested.

False teeth can impair your ability to eat Owl, Twinkle didn't mention age, you got there yourself. People have false teeth for lots of reasons.

And people who answer the phone by clearing their throat? BATTER THEM!!!!!

OwlLady Thu 15-Nov-12 18:09:43

she said elderly in her first post and my own hang ups? get a grip grin

twinkletoescare Thu 15-Nov-12 18:11:59

dublinmammy it's worse when they are form a call centre and do that!

jjuice Thu 15-Nov-12 18:12:50

Tremolo and people who mix up ice cream until it's slimy?

Owl I believe this is a light hearted thread. OP shame on you for not having made that clear....

britmodgirl Thu 15-Nov-12 18:13:26

wasn't this a light hearted joke thread, who called the fun police?

Cortana Thu 15-Nov-12 18:13:35

Being elderly doesn't mean you can't eat nicely. My aunt is in her 80's and due to being a perfectly able adult she can eat at table nicely thank you.

The point was that being elderly or a child doesn't excuse bad table manners. The false teeth reference was OP pointing out that sometimes there are valid reasons for not eating nicely and of course this thread wasn't aimed at them.

What about people who eat noisily down the phone Twinkle and Dublin?!?!

britmodgirl Thu 15-Nov-12 18:14:33

banging of cutlery against teeth arrrggggghhh

DublinMammy Thu 15-Nov-12 18:15:23

Eating noisily down the phone whilst clearing throat and crinkling the wrapper? I may have a stroke soon....... Just from pure rage.

Tiredmumno1 Thu 15-Nov-12 18:15:32

My ds has SN and does this regularly, he also gets reminded every time to close his mouth, but I forgive him he just forgets smile

Tiredmumno1 Thu 15-Nov-12 18:16:04

I won't punch him either grin

Just a gentle reminder wink

kiwigirl42 Thu 15-Nov-12 18:17:11

oh god. My mother eats with her mouth open so you can see all the food being chomped around. She sucks at the same time as chewing and its just fucking disgusting. Makes me sick just thinking about it.

there is just NO NEED. NO fucking NEED. We've a labrador who eats nicer than her.

twinkletoescare Thu 15-Nov-12 18:17:32

jjuice I must remember to add a little (this is a joke thread) in my next post just so everyone can be clear wink

cortana I had a very good friend who used to chomp down the phone but would insist on talking/chomping for hours on end, god I'm shuddering just thinking of it!

Even my own eating, if I have a cold and can't eat with my mouth closed, drives me insanely mad, so yadnbu. I stopped eating with some family members and sometimes can't face dinner at the family table just because of the gross eating habits of my own kids/grandfather. It is probably my problem, not theirs, but I hate it. I have looked at my husband when he is eating noisily and had murderous thoughts...

OwlLady Thu 15-Nov-12 18:18:05

I really don't think I need to be patronised

Fair enough if it was meant to be lighthearted but I still find it offensive

Cortana Thu 15-Nov-12 18:18:20

<Passes Dublin smelling salts>

Arf Tired, always nice to hear about people not beating their kids. grin Although the wink after "gentle reminder" did make me wonder what you did!

twinkletoescare Thu 15-Nov-12 18:20:35

flyingspaghetti wow you've got it bad! grin

DublinMammy Thu 15-Nov-12 18:21:15

<revives self>

<thanks Cortana for smelling salts>

<realises has offended anyone who ever knew anyone who had a stroke or other vascular event ever as clearly was utterly serious>

<faints/strokes>

Cortana Thu 15-Nov-12 18:21:22

I wasn't patronising you. You made a comment about OP's posts, I had read them in a different way (and I suspect in the way OP intended) and I pointed that out.

Cortana Thu 15-Nov-12 18:23:18

Don't worry Dublin, I had a mini stroke once (tempted to make Ex-DP joke but I'll leave it). Although I should point out I also wasn't making fun, I know if you're at risk of a stroke salt isn't really what you need, however I don't think smelling salts fall under the same.
