How do you eat?

Being stuck at the airport for a couple of days gives a guy plenty of time to people watch and see things that quite frankly, I could do with out, like eating.

Now I get the fact that we all have to eat, and with the fast paced world we live in today, people eat on the go more than ever.

This is never more evident than at the airport, and while I hate to watch someone eat, I'm compelled to continue to stare. It's like that car crash you just can't take your eyes off of.

I've witnessed people eating standing up, running, and my personal fav, two feet in front of me.  And I've never seen anyone  eat with style or grace. And just for the record I've never seen anyone like the chick in the Hardee's commercials, who makes it look sexy or hot.

For me, I hate to watch or hear people eat, especially strangers. Which I guess is why I'm a little more conscious of my own eating in public.

So please remember your manners. Keep your mouth closed, don't talk with food in your mouth, and use a napkin, for crying out loud. Remember, the rest of us our watchin.

Tell me, does it bother you to see a stranger eating?



  1. Stuck at the airport? Oh no!
    I'm with you. I don't want to watch people eat. ESPECIALLY at an airport. As far as I'm concerned, many people develop "vacation brain" the second they step inside the airport. While under the influence of "vacation brain", all manners and civil behavior gets left behind. Ugh.

  2. Mercy! This has to be one of my BIGGEST pet peeves. It can drive me crazy to the point of violent thoughts. People can be so disgusting!!! I don't want to see it or hear it....blech. And once I get fixated on it, I can't seem to let it go. I have to remove myself from the situation.

  3. The reason I get angry when I watch people eat is because it means I'm not eating. If I was eating I wouldn't be watching them so closely. Is it rude to ask for them to share?
