What’s your worst restaurant faux pas, the thing you really hate seeing people do in restaurants? Perhaps it’s being rude to waiting staff, or bad table manners, or is it fussy eaters?
Fourth software, as reported by The Independent, surveyed 1500 people in the UK to find out what irks them the most when dining with others in restaurants. They found that 60% of people have been put off by their dining companion’s etiquette, 10% have felt the need to apologise for their parents’ manners, and only one in five think it’s acceptable to upload photos of your food to social media.
They used the results to draw up a list of the top 35 biggest dining faux pas in restaurants. We’re sure you’ll recognise many of these, with the top three being clicking your fingers at the wait staff, talking with your mouth full and being too loud.
