    oooh... I've never made a cheese, but once an old woman made a cheese for me as a gift for visiting! it was awesome!

    irrelevant, yes, but I just typed what I thought of!

I wanted to throw up.

    I couldn't help but wonder why he was doing this? Was his day so busy that the only time he had to eat was at his dentist appointment? Why couldn't he have eaten this in his car? I surely would have. Wasn't he at all worried about having bits of food stuck in his teeth for the dental hygienist to have to dig out?

    Anyway I have been known to grab some take out and eat it in the car when I'm really hungry, but even then I am still conscience of other drivers watching me eat. Do they think I am a pig and can't wait till I get home? I think eating in public should be confined primarily to places where food is being served.

    What are your thoughts on the subject?
    It does seem rather unpleasant, and I can't imagine it happening anywhere other than the ultimate consumer society... I've never seen anyone eat in a dentist's waiting room.

    Of course, in the long long waiting lists in a hospital in the UK to see a casualty/ER person, it's normal to munch some chocolate or something from vending machine. A person could starve to death, else.

    I don't think it's a big deal if you eat wherever you want as long as:

    -you're not disrespecting anybody (i.e. not in other stores [esp. in clothes stores], religious "places," a stranger's house, I have a reasonable mental list of this stuff)
    -you use good manners. most important.

    the only time i like to be in close proximity to other people eating is when i'm eating as well. for some reason watching others eat makes me uncomfortable.

    Apparantly eating is something that needs to be done in private or in group when everybody eats at the same moment. And yet, business lunches should belong to the last group, and I always find that very awkward.
    Eating at the dentist's is something that beats me. Not only does it irritate the other patients, but probably the dentist as well. And indeed: the combination of the odour of the dentist's office and the smell of BBQ sauce seems revolting. But that must also have been the case for the "foodoffender" himself. A very strange story indeed

    i'm gonna derail my own thread by introducing you to your new boyfriend. And the best part is that he's a hair stylist!

    I used to LOATHE eating in public. It bothered me so much. I've mostly gotten over it though. I do have a bad habit of constantly covering my mouth while I eat, either with my hand or a folded up napkin.
    Now I can bust a plate of sushi on a train, or a cheese burger while I walk. NO SHAME.
