    I don't think Eileen has posted in this thread. Did you mean me? I also said that I don't like to eat in public, but I tried to frame it as my own neurosis. It doesn't mean I get grossed out when people are eating on a park bench or whatever. That's why they usually have picnic tables at parks, IME. But the dentist is out of bounds I think.

    Oops again even more! I meant faith!!! Sorry, I think they used to have similar avatars on INTPc or something, but my brain seems to link them together somehow...

    Really not with it today, sorry!!

    edit - I agree about the dentist mainly because it's a place where hygeine is important, so psychologically it's important to people to be able to see and smell all those hygeinic vibes. It should smell of disinfectant and be all white and clean and stuff. If I walked in and smelled greasy takeaway food it wouldn't fill me with confidence about the practice's hygeine policies! So it's not so much the person eating that I'd have the problem with, but the side effects of it in that particular situation.

    There's just something that bothers me really, about this whole Western tendency - especially British and American - towards generally sanitizing life so that any natural thing, anything sorta down to earth and real ends up being 'icky'. I know people who won't touch raw meat, or use a dishwasher purely because they don't like the thought of touching plates that have food on them that was someone else's... I just wonder and worry a bit about what seems to me to be a general move towards a kinda precious OCD-esque society... I don't think it's particularly healthy.
    Really. My daughter won't touch raw meat when helping to prepare a meal.

    I don't have a problem with your eating on the side of the road or at the park. There are plenty of outdoor noises to mask any sounds of sucking and chomping on food. It's in confined non food places that I have a problem with.

    I've also been puked on and pooped on (among other things) by my own offspring so you can't scare me. The day we brought our daughter home from the hospital she decided to spew mustard like poop all over my fresh out the dryer terry cloth bath robe. How's that for a homecoming?

    Of course, at least we don't eat diapers!

    Wonder if this might be related to J/P- a boundaries issue? I would say that Js are more likely to have clearly defined boundaries and expect others to respect them. Which, again, would explain why I ride the fence, as I always do in these threads.

I particularly dislike eating outdoors, although I can drink from one of those narrow-necked plastic containers with a cap they put drinks in these days, or an aluminum can while outside (A glass is unfit, however). It's unlikely that I would eat inside anywhere near a doctor's office or other place with disgusting connotations like a warehouse. I can eat in a regular office (that handles mostly paperwork/computers) under some circumstances, especially if I'm going to spend a lot of time there.

    I'm one of those appalling people who has NO FEAR of germs! I'll eat just about anywhere- I'll buy food from street vendors in third world countries and eat it without fear of consequence, I'll eat behind the counter at work, chomp down on food in grungy restraunts happily, I eat in my car and I eat in class! (yeah- this is starting to sound a bit like Green Eggs and Ham)

    I wouldn't eat in the dentist's office though- I'm a bit picky about my teeth and live in dread fear that the dentist might not praise them as a perfect specimine of dental perfection for once!

    Otherwise though, sorry people! Eating is as natural as blinking or sneezing, and when I've got to eat, I'm going to eat! (at least I have good table manners and eat food that works along with what I'm doing- nothing smelly or time consuming in public for me!)

    I am pretty sure I'd have to have a really, really good reason to eat in a dentist's waiting room. I get grossed out by watching surgeries, etc, but I've dealt with plenty of gross people and animal stuff courtesy of four kids two dogs and three cats. I'm not really very germ conscious and I'll eat wherever as long as it's reasonably socially appropriate. If it's something particularly messy I might feel self-conscious eating in front of non-family/close friends, though. I'm not what you'd call coordinated.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers
