I was at the dentists yesterday for a cleaning and this guy walks in with a bag of food from Chick Fil A. He proceeds to sit down next to me and open the box of chicken and smother it with BBQ sauce and start eating it. Here I am trying to watch Elf (with Will Ferrel) and he is sucking and smacking on his afternoon snack. The smell of his food did not go at all with the clean aesthetic smell of my dentists office. 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?
