Strange eating habits

I am on the train home and the lady in front of me is eating a muffin with a spoon out of a paper bag.

She is struggling to cut it into pieces, struggling to keep it on the spoon on the way to her mouth. It is painful to watch, why won't she just hold the bloody muffin in her hand and bite it?

I am starving today and realise I am probably too fixated on her.

What strange eating habits have you seen or come across?

I normally would eat the muffin like a maniac but if in public I would try to do it in a nice way which sounds like what she was doing grin

I'm wondering if it's a hygiene issue for her. I eat muffins by tearing off bits. Public transport means she's touching loads of stuff of maybe not wanting to eat with her hands?

She's trying to not get crumbs everywhere?

One of my secondary school teachers would eat burgers with a spoon.

Her hands won't be clean if she's navigated a train station - with doors and escalators etc.

I'd probably eat a muffin with a spoon in those circumstances too.
