FI is actually pretty good with table manners. A bit more sloppy at home, but tolerable.

Mr. Bee, my husband is a lot like you. He can have lovely manners when he wants to, but doesn’t feel the need at home. Luckily he doesn’t get too upset when I nag him. 🙂

We are both all the sloppy we want to be in the comfort of our own home, but out in public we are both usually pretty presentable. 🙂

I think his table manners are a little better than mine! Mine tend to be sloppy. Hazard of having 3 older brothers!

Yes…but he blows his nose at the table, which isn’t the end all be all, but sometimes he does it in restaurants! Gross!!! He has gotten better, but he slips now and then…

When the food is almost gone my husband holds the plate right up to his mouth and shovels the food in! And when he eats chocolate ice cream it winds up allll over his lips. He is such a messy eater at home, but I don’t mind. I find it homorous and am just glad he likes my cooking! He’s has good manners when we go out to eat though.

In most ways, he has great table manners. However, I have one huge pet peeve: he leaves his napkin on the table. It.makes.me.insane. I can hear the voices of ALL the women in my family saying "Put your napkin on your lap".
It’s my biggest pet peeve about him….I know that sounds petty…but it makes me crazy. He will do it occasionally, at a wedding, or at my super-formal, work parties, but most of the time, there’s the napkin sitting on the table. Urgh!!!!

I think my husband has nice table manners when we are in public, but not at home.  He sometimes holds his utensil like a child and shovels his food in.  He also chews very loudly at home!  I still love him though!

@happilywaiting: If it makes you feel any better, I had a napkin pet peeve with my husband also.  When we use paper napkins he puts them on his plate, then puts it in the sink like that.  The soggy napkin is sooo annoying, but his parents do that so I know where he got it from, that’s for sure!

generally yes he does but lately ive noticed he seems to have a prison seige mentality and sits down, starts shoving food into his face and finishes dinner.  i told him that i spend alot of time planning, making and presenting our meals so i would appreciate him showing a bit more respect than just shoving it into his face and i DEF would appreciate some more talk during dinner. *sigh* he’s trying to be better…..

@Lillindy – oh gawd….soggy napkins freak me out….so sorry. The sad thing about my guy is that his parents do put their napkins on their laps…he just doesn’t. Eeek….soggy napkins=ick. But we love our men anyways. 🙂

@eloping – I think (and no I don’t cook, Mr HW is the chef in our house) your hubby looks at his plate, thinks "YUM", and digs in. I know how you feel, but I do think that’s a huge compliment to you that he obviously loves your cooking!

@Happilywaiting:   you are so right! thats what hubby says but some days after spending alot of time (and money in produce) making a great meal it rubs me the wrong way, like the time i spent hours making a greek octopus (yuk!) meal and he ate it in about 8mins
