Visa applications should require a test on basic table manners for all Asian applicants. And Irish applicants, too.

For a girl, I'm pretty disgusting at the table. Somehow no one seems to mind much. At least, people seem to enjoy eating with me and want to do it often.

I prefer to fart at the table. I find that my own personal intestinal aroma enhances the flavors of the food and adds to the ambiance. My own comfort is all that matters, I shouldn't have any sort of consideration for others around me. If you disagree with that, you just don't understand my culture.

See how stupid that sounds?

People who slurp soup in public deserve one warning. After that, their lips should be stapled together.

Few things get to me like that sound does. I know it's a common Asian thing; my Asian best friend doesn't even know he does it. I can't stand it.

Who doesn't want a meal that includes gin and bacon?

The sound of people smacking their food drives me up a farking wall. I cannot handle it

I usually do a pretty loud slurp when I'm trying a new scotch. It helps open up the flavors and spreads the love across your entire palate. I'll also let the sweet nectar sit on my tongue and then breathe in getting more of the aromas off it. It'll often repeat it one more time then proceed to normal sipping.

I remember the first time I tried it and sneezed. I'm glad my whiskey club is relaxed.

My way is right, no matter what, and I will enforce my will with physical violence.

/see how stupid that sounds?

Slurping doesn't bother me.
However, I will stab you if you twirl your pasta with a fork and the tines scrape the plate.

I WILL FARKING STAB YOU!!!

Also, just typing this made my spine shiver.

I don't mind at all, just like I can give two shiats about someone eating with their hands.

No way to not make this advice not sound dirty, but feel should be shared:

Suck, don't blow. Less mess, and more effective.

/slurping is just weird. I've been able to not do it since childhood without losing any food

I guess I'm just an Asiaphile having lived and worked there most of the 1990s. A Japanese friend said "we slurp the noodles and that shows we like it". I took that at face value and never cared after that. But upthread I read a lot of hatred of slurping sounds. I guess it's "hate the sound, but love the soundmaker" to misquote someone who once had a vision of a world of peace.

"Did you see the way she slurped her soup?"
"Yeah, next time I'll give her a pickle and see what she does."
"Ice cream cones for dessert?"
"Hell yeah."

Maybe I just have Misophonia, but every time I hear people slurp coffee or soup, my reaction is the same as I have towards fingernails on a chalkboard.

//I'll get over it, though.
