Culinary no-no from the past and still a no-no today: Very rude

THERE ARE THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF FOOD BLOGS, BUT ONLY ONE CULINARY NO-NO!

The Fischer Family has spent the past 4 days (including today) at Irish Fest. Faith and Begorrah I’m beat.

I also did a few dozen Elvis blogs this week, so I simply ran out of time to do a fresh Culinary no-no, and do it justice.

So, summer rerun!

This is one of my favorite Culinary no-no blogs. It goes all the way back to my blogging on the old FranklinNOW.com site, now known as MySouthNow, but all the blogs were unceremoniously dumped last year.

Never mind when this was posted. It’s still timely, and may not get your temperature rising,  but it drives me nuts. See if you agree.

Culinary no-no #335
Posted by Kevin Fischer on June 30, 2013

This week’s Culinary no-no has been described as the following on Internet chat sites and frequently occurs in restaurants of all kinds:

Very rude

That is GROSS beyond belief

I would find it weird

it actually angered me!

I don’t think its very polite

that’s disgusting and very poor manners.

What is wrong with people?!

Yuck.

It is nasty and disgusting in McDonalds all the way up to any 5 star place.

Can you guess what it is?

Let’s give you some time.

Quite possibly more time than you’ll need.

Click and then while the music from this instrumental classic is playing,  think away.

Alright, let’s repeat:

Very rude

That is GROSS beyond belief

I would find it weird

it actually angered me!

I don’t think its very polite

that’s disgusting and very poor manners.

What is wrong with people?!

Yuck.

It is nasty and disgusting in McDonalds all the way up to any 5 star place.

Is it:

Eating peas with a knife?

NO.

Picking your nose?

NO.

Forgoing a spoon and drinking soup out of the bowl?

NO.

Wiping your mouth with your sleeve?

NO.

The answer is:

You see it everywhere. Inside. Outside. Burger King. Bartolotta’s. Shoes on. Shoes off. Bare feet.

Restaurant patrons with their feet up on booths or chairs.

The defense of such behavior is, as you might expect, Neanderthal-like.

Wha’ da you care?

If you don’t like it, don’t look.

I’m not hurting nobody.

My money’s good here.

Hey. Go suck an egg.

I truly don’t understand some of the things that people get riled up over. There are more important things to worry about. Like whether you received a wedding invitation with the exact proper length of notice.

Let’s go back to one of those chat sites:

I see plenty of people at Starbucks putting bare feet up on chairs. Who wants to sit next to some slob’s disgusting bare feet….ugh!

And this goes to the core of societal problems, it is total disregard for anyone but themselves. People hogging seats and acting like pigs have no consideration for others.

Bingo!

We’ve lost civility, being courteous. Proper manners and respect for others have been replaced by a boorish, selfish mentality.

I blame:

The Bubba taught America it was OK to be a slob whenever and wherever you wanted to be.

Feet up on restaurant chairs isn’t the most egregious no-no. But it’s annoying, rude, and discourteous enough. Folks, this isn’t your living room. It’s not even your furniture. Keep your feet on the floor.
