I never really thought about how I use my fork and knife until I got sucked into reading this thread.

Eating diner last night I observed myself cutting afew bit of meat with
the inverted fork in my left hand. I then transferred the fork to my right hand (I'm right-handed) and ate using the fork as a scoop to lift rice then skewering a bit of meat on the end of the fork before bringing it to my mouth.

Who knew? Seems to work though gt;)

Bilboburglar - I remember all those faux-pas from my childhood too. Especially the eating and drinking in the street (and doubly especially not in school uniform - announcements were made in assembly of the evil of such deeds!). And the not running with scissors one too. Wasn't it usually followed with reference to 'Having an eye out' or something similar?!
