Etiquette Tip of the Week from the Culture and Manners Institute
The Bone of Contention
You have just taken a delicious bite. But as you remove the fork from your mouth — with your lips enclosed, being careful not to drag your teeth on the fork, because that sound makes some people want to scream — you realize there is an unwanted object left behind in your mouth.
What is it? Fish skeletal fragment? Watermelon seed? Brussels sprout? Or dare we speak its name — gristle? (Even the name sounds gross, doesn’t it?)
What you may not do: spit the object into your napkin.
What you may do to remove the offending object:
1) Pinch it: move the object to the front of your mouth, pinch it with your thumb and index finger and bring it down to your plate, discreetly. Wipe your fingers on your napkin.
2) Spit it out into your cupped fingers: again discreetly. Bring it down to your plate. Wipe your fingers on your napkin. This is best for slippery items, like a melon seed. (Try to pinch that with two fingers and it might go flying and hit the person next to you. That would be more embarrassing than anything… and please don’t ask me how I know.)
3) Take it out the way it went in: bring your fork to your lips and push the object to onto the fork. Move the fork down to your plate. This method takes finesse — so practice at home first.
If the unwanted object came from the dinner plate, it goes back to the dinner plate and gets shoved out of sight under a piece of parsley or decorative lettuce. It is not exiled to the bread plate. Remember, what happens on the dinner plate, stays on the dinner plate.
