I hate eating with other people.
There “s a few reasons for this:
I almost always “mess up” somehow – like, drop a fork/spoon/etc onto the floor, or into my soup which will then splatter everywhere, or spill a water glass, or break a wine glass, or SOMETHING.
I eat with my hands. Anything that I can pick up, I do, and I break apart my food into very very very small pieces.
I don “t eat much. No matter the size of the portion, it is guaranteed that I will leave 75% of it on the plate. Every time. My colleagues and close friends love this about me, and will wait to see what I “m going to order so they don “t double-order, because they know they will just pilfer whatever it is from my plate.
I have a ton of food allergies and restrictions. I always have to order off the menu and frankly it gets annoying. There was one time the only thing on the menu I was able to eat was a cheese plate from the dessert menu, and only the goat cheeses at that.
Eating with other people sucks for me. But, needs must.
